5. Deuce and a Half Variants

There are many variants of these iconic 6×6 vehicles. Some are even bobbed to 4×4’s. They are not so great for keeping a low profile, but they are the go to choice for many preppers looking for a vehicle with plenty of cargo space and can be had starting at under $10K.

6. Older Mercedes Benz Unimog (Diesel with Mechanical Fuel Injection)

Think of these as the European answer to the Deuce and a half. They were first manufactured just after WWII and were sold as the Freightliner Unimog in the US. They are popular as off-road expedition vehicles and even off road endurance events.

What happens when you need to escape the land and get onto water? When you need to quickly make your exit during a SHTF moment there are a few vessels you can depend on after the break.

    This is not one of them. Most of these Blazers came back after “Desert Storm” with 1,200 to 2,300 miles on them. The fine desert sand kills them. Drive train and engine.

      I would think most of those CUCV’s were too old to have been in the Gulf Wars. They have been selling them as surplus for decades.

    Article mentions a 4×4 Toyota but pic shows a 2wd model. Personally I’d pick an 85 or newer with the fuel injected 22RE engine.
