    I'd much rather have an off road buggy. Say a mild 454ci BBC, Dana 60 front axle, 14 bolt corporate rear axle, with 38" tires. Engine should be putting out about 500HP and more torque with EFI to be capable enough for my taste. Enough room for plenty of gear and extra fuel. Would get you anywhere you needed to go and then some. Custom tube chassis would allow for infinite possibilities to suit specific needs.

    If you left a paved road in one of those things you'd get stuck about instantly. 10 tons and tiny tires.

    Good for zombies, bad for getting to remote places.

                This is not a minimum list. Not really even a maximum list. It's more a pick and choose list of what I consider desirable options for a PAW BOV. Most of it really isn’t needed for a simple BOV. This is more for the PAW. One where about the only fuel will be biodiesel and alcohol, only salvage parts can be found, and there will be no tow-trucks to come get you. Suitable for off-road and badly deteriorated roads that probably won't get better. Options to get you through places not otherwise traversable and to recover a few useful items that might be needed or wanted.

                            I have a 1984 M1008 CUCV 4x4 with a 6.2 diesel. I can run it off of transmission fluid or WVO if necessary. It is mechanically injected. It has 4:56 gears. It currently has just under 35,000 miles on it. It does not have heated seat, a/c, cup holders or a radio.

                              One of these bad boys would be nice...

                              MXT

                              Or go with the bigboy

                              CXT

                              Plus both diesel so could possibly brew up bio fuel to keep em running.

                              I had my eye on an old M37 my dad had that someone swapped a 350 Chevy into but he ended up trading it to a guy before I knew he was looking to get rid of it.
                              I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you!
