That's the point of the Unimog.

Mogs are great! I wish I could have a couple! (stupid ping pong balls. . . :cursing: )

The first time I saw a Mog in person was about 4 years ago, about 50 miles from my house.
There were several other people gawking at it besides me, both as I walked up to it, and after I walked away.


Haven't seen another one since.




Seen lots of M-B wagons. . . probably didn't notice a great many more than I'd actually seen - and had register on my consciousness. . .

Just sayin'. . . :ninja:

My son says they don't exist. May have to be custom built.

Look at the Northern Tool site. They have a great choice of Aux tanks in multiple configurations along with pumps, etc.

Thanks for the memory jog fren2ken . . .
You can also look at West Marine/BoatUS, Boater's world, etc for marine fuel tanks - they come in MANY variations in terms of dimensions, capacity, and configuration, as well as fixed vs portable.

I would vote on swapping in a duramax into a GM SUV. I did it and have since enjoyed it everyday. Nothing like 21MPG doing 70mph on a 3/4 ton Yukon XL that is pulling 480HP and 609 ftlbs of torque.

A Unimog is on my "wish list"...Don't know if I'd ever be able to afford one, but it's the vehicle I want.
