Changed the family runaround/BOV to a Skoda Yeti (I had a Nissan Quashqui before)

Lower ground clearance (This is not the 4x4 version) a tiny economical 1.2l turbo petrol
Roof Rails as standard and the easy addition of a set of £26 Lidl roof bars and a topbox increases the carrying capaicty...I'm fully aware that a tiny turbocharged engine with whole host of electronic gizmos requiring servicing every 10K miles is not a feasable long term veichle but for something to get me the 10 miles to my BOL and run around for a few weeks or months post SHTF.

So I went and kind of got something a little bigger. And louder.

https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/your ... 9882185135

It is a 1984 (still debating with the insurance company) AM General M925 5-ton Cargo Truck with ~41,000 Miles on it. It has a NHC-250 which is a naturally aspirated engine and a 5 speed automatic Allison transmission behind it with a #20,000 PTO driven winch on the front. It has its issues, but I ran it from Huntsville to my farm with only a jump for the batteries with no problems.

Currently bugged-out...

New to me 1986/87 Fleetwood Bounder, runs great, $1,500.00. Best deal of the year! I'm going to use it as my halloween costume this year, just going to drive it around and tell people I'm a meth lab!

Wife and I want to change our camping to off road. We have always had a Wrangler and this one is a 2015 along with a military M1101 HUMVEE trailer i got from GovPlanet. I have already changed the trailer's wiring to 12 v (from the government 24v) and right now i have having the pintle lowered by eight inches. it did sit at 29 1/2 and even though the Wrangler has been lifted 2 inches there was still a 7 inch gap. Next up is fabricating some type of aluminum lid to open to the side with legs and a tent to be raised. I'll add a gen, propane and several more holders for jerry gas cans along with all the other stuff neated to a trip

Can't wait to have my truck back. A service tech at a national chain screwed up and it lead to a motor failure on it. Kind of pissed because after the new motor gets placed in it, I have to do the egr delete again.

Driving around in my Tacoma these days, a decent temporary bugout truck.

That trailer is awesome! Badass rig man.

More updates on my new BOV.

2015 Yamaha WR250R. Painted some panels black including missing fork covers. MotoZ Mountain Hybrid rear tire added with HD tube, and an 18W LED trail light. Not an up to date pic but close enough.

Ever since I saw the Yeti on Top Gear, I've wanted one. Bout the only thing that will get me out of the BMW-Mercedes death grip I currently have. Too bad they are not sold in the states

This is not mine. It has been up for sale on Craigslist for a while now. I guess that he built his dream vehicle and found that living the dream was not as good as was imagined :mrgreen:
Quite a luxurious escape vehicle. Lots of good bug out vehicle porn!

It looks like 1/3-1/2 of the space in the camper part is taken up by the bike shed.

And HEMTTs have really, really crappy rides. Bouncy as heck, especially at anything about 15 mph or so. They're designed for the ability to haul cargo over rough terrain, and sprung accordingly.

Riding in the front seat - and thus in front of the wheels - takes some getting used to.

For me the top speed of just 65 was the worst thing about it.

Anyhow, found some more cool vehicle porn from http://www.jd3.com/
