extra trans cooler

Home made Rock rails.
Home-made snorkel.

This is my daily drive well so most wheeling gear is packed in plastic and metal boxes that fit the truck bed for max' storage efficiency.

60L original fuel tank gives me about 400km between fueling when going off road and a 20L spare tank gives extra 150 km.

Early picture of my (new to me) 1979 Unimog. I will get to update pics when i finally get my hands on it. I plan for it to be my DD/expo/trail rig/car crusher
I will mostly do interior sound proofing and fix things that come with a rig sitting for a year. wish me luck...oh, i will also run it on veggy oil...

Dana 44 SAS'd Mitsubishi Montero Sport. Almost everything that might break or cause problems has been replaced with commonly available parts. The Mitsu t-case is in the process of going away. That's being replaced with dual NP231s. I'll hold enough supplies for a week and a half for two and a week for four. Two can sleep in the vehicle so we don't usually bring a tent for myself and my SO. Loaded to 6400 GVW it still gets 17-18 mpg - and it'll go dang near anywhere off road even loaded. Also doubles as my daily driver work truck. :-)

I'm glad I stumbled across this thread. I've been tinkerin' w/ just a few ideas or turning this into a live in rig for a while. I used it as a my home while deer hunting. I know a lift winch and tires are in order before I can even get serious. The trailer would be nice to bring but I rarely use it for anything.

Kinda pushing the definition of expedition vehicle, since it is very heavy and 2WD, but it does have a locking rear differential (from a Mack) and 42" tires! There is also a winch in the works.




The primary limitation off-road is the weight and the limited crawl ability with the Allison 4sp and 3.7 gears. Should have held out for an Allison 5sp, whch has about a 10:1 first gear.

I looked into a 4wd chassis, but they are very hard to find with a DT466, and expensive, heavy, loud and too tall and long. It's primarily a tow rig, anyway.

This is a former Coke truck, and cost all of $5500. I had the camper already. The axle cost $1500. AC $1600. New rear tires $1200. Raw steel to build the subframe, etc., almost $2k.

I'm in the middle of another Land Rover build right now. '67 109 that's getting a Benz 617 turbo, NP435, Toyota centers, etc. Should be done by the end of the summer. First big trip is probably going to be up to Newfoundland and Labrador but this truck will get to Alaska some time in the next couple years. I'll buy you a beer when I get there.

Jim
That sounds terrific, It would be great to see 109 turbo up close.
I might even go "Land Rover" I have toyed with the idea but they seem to be hard to find up here.


Regards,

Jim
