Ok, so I am looking to add a Unimog after I got to drive my buddies the other day. His Deuce and half was way to big but the Unimog was awesome. He was telling me about a comparable Land rover but for the life of me I cannot remember what it was called? Anyone know or can post pics of them so I can check it out. Unimogs are pretty available for cheap, I cannot believe there are to many Land rovers floating around?

Likely talking about the Forward control but it does not compare to a mog IMO.

His mog was diesel, but all I can find cheap are the petrol. Is that typical? That's it forward control, he said there are a few floating around.

Go to greenmountainrovers.com you're a little late to the party to get the really awesome ones they had up on eBay for cheap last year, but I'm sure he still has a few. I think he converted one to a 4.2 or 4.6 which sounded interesting.

10-4, they are running 3.5 with a 4:1 set up where the Mog typically have 6:2 six forward gears and two reverse. Seems like more options allow for better crawling, this is going to be built/driven to events and to get mulch

101 is a bit more DD friendly(if you can call it that). Uni is more of a tractor.


Both attract swarms of people in town haha.

The troop ones are my favorites. I really liked the fire one.

I've also seen one of the few remaining PTO driven sankeys that were built for the Forward Controls that is in a private collection. Now THAT is cool.

Don't leave out the Mack Daddy these big 4x4s, the Pinzgauer. These pop up for sale quite often. The white one that sold in CA a year or two ago was incredible:

There are two or three in Telluride as well:

There's also a really sweet mega oil burning Mog in Telluride, the guy who owns it is hilarious.

That thing was awesome - super clean, too. It was listed at $22k back when I posted it here:

There's also the Forward Control that ECR did many moons ago.

depends on which vintage mog you are talking about. The early ones with 45mph top speeds I'd agree. The later turbo diesels are highway eaters.
