Ultimate Bug Out Vehicle – Urban Survival


Well, ultimate may be stretching it a little. But these little trucks are pretty cool. The Suzuki Carry is a 3 cylinder, 12 valve, 4 wheel drive.

    Think I’ll stick with my H3.

    Did you end up getting it? Honestly I think it leaves you a bit exposed and is underpowered. I’d rather a ’95-’97 GMC Suburban 6.5L Diesel and get a US Surplus Humvee engine, from what I understand they swap out pretty easily, just change a few connectors.

    When i worked at 6 Flags New England a few years ago, they had a couple of these on hand for various chores around the park. (I think they were Dihatsu Hijets, actually). I’m not sure that they are road legal in the US. Check out the old Citroen Mehari 4×4, now that would be a cool B.O.V.

    Something that I try to consider is scavangeability (which is surely not a word). Taking this into consideration, I’ve come to the conclusion that the Ford Ranger is my ideal bug-out-mobile. Parts compatibility spans nearly a decade on most of the vehicle and many parts are also compatible with Ford Explorer. As I’m sure you’ll notice, these are everywhere! It has the essential 4×4. With a topper you have a shelter. I’m not a brand loyalist by any measure; this is my assessment as a survivalist.

    @envirosponsible lol did you git it?

  7. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 4:12 am |

    @TempiBrutali Too bad. I know they’re legal here in Canada.

    I just called a Jersey dealership to see if they’d be willing to import one. No go. Apparently it doesn’t come close to making safety and customs inspections.Too F’ing bad :/

    @envirosponsible Definitely has alot of potential. You can modifly and compartmentalize to fit any system you want. So, did you get it?

  10. @envirosponsible

    Would be really cool to beef up the tires and suspension a little and go explore some old service roads and logging roads. You could even load all your equipment to do some camping!

  11. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 6:22 am |

    @Selax A little of both.

  12. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 6:42 am |

    @capreolus4 LOL! You’re probably right.

  13. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 7:20 am |

    @bucki58 I like that idea too.

  14. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 7:39 am |

    @1x93cm That’s all I’m missing for now.

  15. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 8:07 am |

    @xxCaptainFishstix I just looked up the Sambar. They do look better.

  16. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 8:14 am |

    @BitFox Yeah they look fun.

  17. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 9:10 am |

    @magicbuskey True.

  18. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 9:12 am |

    @mattswall Ha!

  19. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 10:06 am |

    @lenlava No. Maybe later. I have greater priorities right now.

  20. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 10:35 am |

    @survivor8bit It’s a peas of something alright.

  21. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 11:00 am |

    @AIRSFTKNG A tire is easy to fix.

  22. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 11:45 am |

    @TheRedHawk123 True enough.

  23. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 11:51 am |

    @JustFresh099 I’m inclined to agree with you. Thanks.

  24. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 12:42 pm |

    @gasdorf Sarah’s getting used to my nonsense.

  25. envirosponsible | July 31, 2010 at 12:44 pm |

    @Doggorunning Right on. Thanks for sharing that.
