    Soo, guess who I'm targeting first if I need food and gas after SHTF.
    For $700k, I could have one heck of an underground shelter built behind my house that would sustain my family for years if need be. I don't get that whole mentality of packing up and heading out. If it's a natural disaster, it'll strike too fast to even make a difference. If it's a slow progressive issue, I can hunker down for a couple of years and wait it out. Besides, we all know zombies hate to dig.

    Looters will be on that thing quicker than a fat kid on an ice cream truck.

    Take the recent hurricane. Days of notice and unless you made your underground bunker out of an old submarine you'd have to leave any way. ;)

    It needs a machine gun turret on top. Remote control, of course. Something like this:

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    This won't attract any unwanted attention. No really, it says that right in the owners manual. Wow, this means that some people will ride around in comfort when the SHTF. I'm gonna get me a couple of them while the getting is good.

    Serve my country, swear an oath to protect it, pay my taxes, fly old glory in the front yard, love and protect my family, honor the vets before me and help fellow americans in need.
    By definition my country now calls me a radical

    Nice interior. Some of these TEOTWAWKI Toys For Boys are getting mighty expensive.

    All I see is a Target! Very big and screams "we have all the stuff you want. Shoot here for best results". And it is not like the rural Sheriff or 3d tier DHS nobody won't comadeer your vehicle for the better of the community.......

    With this, you are limiting yourself to one big platform, when a swarm mentality of many vehicles with a spread load of what you need to be less of a one kill target (spread loading valuable survival gear in a correct way, minimizes the loss of just one mode of transport's cargo).

    Actually, to protect this vehicle out in the open, you need several mobile weapons platforms and good communications. Otherwise, it is a big Target!

    Besides, its not as good as an up-armored golf cart!
