Oooh…..   and it’s a diesel too…  Very nice. 

I am the East Wind NATO guy so I just buy screaming nice M35A2 trucks from Government Liquidation for $1500.  Tascabe has the one mog that is standing in for an East Bloc truck but he has his eyes on a few other EB trucks right now too so it’s probably not Unimog time for him either. 

That is a very nice looking truck though, someone should snap that up.  If you have never driven offroad in a larger truck, you have no idea what you are missing.   You would be astonished at what sorts of stuff you can just drive right over.   A few weeks before East Wind II, several of us went out to the field to do some survey work and plan the camp layouts.  Terry Stout and I were cruising around in my M35A2 trying to figure out what was and was not passable when we came across a bunch of Jeep guys who were just playing around seeing if they could get their jacked up, big tires, Jeep Cherokees into and out of this ditch.  Since the area was fairly tight and I wanted to give them some room, I just cut out around them and crossed the ditch at a much deeper spot easing the front end of the deuce down into the ditch then grinding my way right back up the other side without so much as missing a beat.   Similarly, we could cross wildly muddy spots simply by being big enough that we never ended up with all of the axles in the mud hole at the same time. 

Sheer size + the ability to creep along at absurdly slow speeds makes for the most fun offroading.   I assure you that a Diesel Unimog can do all of that.

Not mention it is a UniMog which means it is even more capable than almost any other truck in existence.

If only I did not already have a motorpool that is still growing (soon to include armor Afro)

This would be a great little toy just for the fun of it - and a 3 way tipper bed too!

There was a Ural 4320 for sale on Ebay a couple of weeks ago. The East Wind guys wanted to put all their money together to get it... I don't know what happened to it though.

There was much hand wringing and discussion about the Ural.  Biggest issues were the lack of a title (we could get around that but it is a lot of fairly shady work to do so), the hill-billy deluxe camper addition crap inside (lots of crap to toss out and many opportunities for Jethro and Jethrene to have drilled inappropriate holes or otherwise torn the thing up like a rented doublewide. 

On top of all of that, we are really looking for some East Bloc light armor to counter the NATO Ferrets and there are a few decent options to look at out there.

Namely a certain BTR-40 for the NVA to patrol the border in wink

Unfortunately (or fortunately) I am in the process of moving to a much larger chunk of land. The East Wind EastBloc Supply warehouse and motorpool has outgrown its current location so I am in a freeze for more vehicle purchases at this moment.

Currently I know of a GAZ69M for sale in FL, a IFA W50 for sale in TN and then that URAL 4320 in NC.  It is a bumper crop for EB vehicles right now.

That is not counting the BRDM that trackkickers is bringing in, the MTLB that has recently arrived in idaho (or Utah can't remember) and then the BTR40 that I am looking at as well.

To be honest though - the UniMog is better than most of those in several ways - namely being the ability to get parts in the States and the large amount of information for working on them.

Also - they are a lighter truck so don't have any issues getting tagged in most states.
And being diesel this one is extra cool. I wish my 404 was deisel instead of petrol but it is still a good little truck.

OK, I'll give you one incentive, to get Ural 4320 and if after that you want run and get it then I don't know what can convince you Smiley

When you driving Ural and coming to the red traffic light, you line up with some poor shmak sedan with open windows. Put your Ural in neutral and.... floor the gas pedal..... Because of ingenious location of exhaust pipe black cloud of exhaust shoots in his window....

That was the best trick we did with Ural   moon

Aswayze, I know what you mean, I have a M52A2 five ton, and it's incredable offroad. I thought my Nissan was great, which it is, but a real military jeep beats it hands down. and then the 6x6 just rolls over everything without trouble!
