    Official BOV and Contingency Transportation Thread

    Can we get a tack for ideas for vehicles for austere/emergency situations?

    I'll start. I'm working on my KLR650 to make it a scout bike like the Corps' M1030. When I'm done, it will have significant waterproof cargo capacity, plus power for radios and external accessories. I'm finishing up the paint job now. Here's a pic taken just a minute ago:

    Are we looking for austere vehicles (like your skooter there), or BOV for austere conditions?

    This is a subject that I have been pondering for some time now.

    Other than horses, my ideal BOV would be an early 80's or even 70's 4x4 retrofitted with a diesel engine. International Scout, Ford Bronco, Chevy Blazer/Suburban, Toyota Land Cruiser. Jeeps just don't have enough room.

    I'd love to have me a Hilux but the EPA won't let me.

    Unimog.



    And YES! Id love me a diesel Hilux. I think we're the only country that can't get them. Not worth Toyota's effort to release them here....

    Both. Vehicles and mods for 'survival applications' is what I had in mind for the tacked thread.

    Closer to back together:

    Are these available with the diesel engine for the civilian market?

    VERY few and far between. Some PD out in NC/SC actually just got two brand new ones from DRMO. Mine will not be that exact of a copy - I'm going more for function than correctness. I'd love to have one, but the engine alone costs 14k if you can find one.

    I've heard M998 rolling chassis can be had rather cheap... then just look around for a good running 6.2 or maybe spill out the coin for 6.5 or 6.6 turbo and you'd have one hell of a vehicle
