    Those are some beautiful trucks and Jeeps. I sold my late model Dakota when finances tanked. Now I think I'm going to get an OLD F150 I looked at, and keep a BOB in it. Eventually I'd like a hard top Wrangler or similar, and will keep a SHTF kit in it. Eventually...

    Four wheel drive Toyota FJ Cruiser here. Bone stock, but it'll still ford up to 28" of water. Plenty of room for the wife, dog, BOBs, guns and ammo.

    I even opted for the steel wheels over the alloys. You can always beat steel wheels back into shape...

    Steelies are getting hard to find. I don't know why people aren't making them anymore.

    Not as flashy as alloys, so people shy away from them I guess. My black steelies look sharp with a coat of Pledge furniture polish - adds a nice gloss and lasts for weeks.

    My Exploder has twice been used for evacuations. With the cargo box on top, it will hold everything I need: Wife, kids, pets, guns, ammo, irreplaceables and survival gear. Although in a larger scale disaster, I might be more inclined to bug-in.

    1994 K2500 Suburban. 6.5 TurboDiesel. I did a repower on it at 225,000 miles with a Peninsular engine with 18:1 compression and a gear driven cam, high flow high pop marine injectors, Heath chip, Banks exhaust, remote mounted the fuel solenoid driver and added a custom intercooler. This is a pretty tame build, but it makes significantly more power than the factory set up. It is the way GM should have built it in the first place!
    Stock fuel tank gives me about a 600 mile range, but I haven't been able to find either an aux tank or just an oversized replacement for the stock one.

    For comms I have CB and GMRS radios and when I get my Technician ticket will probably add 2 meter. Currently have a small (400 watt) inverter but expect to upgrade shortly. I also removed the center console and replaced it with one of those twelve volt cooler/warmers.

    I only understood about half of that, but it sounds cool!

    Man, this is giving me Jeep envy. I miss my Wrangler. He died a couple of years back. As far as mine, I have a 100% stock Chrysler Concorde. Oh yeah.

    Rough translation: If my wife knew how much money I put under the hood of that truck she would blow a gasket!

    What I have now lets me run about twice as much sustained boost as the factory set up, making gobs more power, but is more reliable and durable than the engine that came with the truck. The Presidents new limo is also powered by a modified GM 6.5 Diesel and I would not be surprised a bit if the difference between mine and his is that he has the older (non electronic) injection pump and a newer (more efficient) turbocharger.
