Never gotten it stuck.... Hmmm, unfortunate-as that is an experience.

Traffic would be fun in it. I got this one up to ~35ish this weekend!

Believe that's roughly the .08 kph lowest speed...which is awesome, if a bit absurd too

At that speed if you see a tree that has fallen across the trail you could put it in the lowest gear, get out cut up the tree and the truck would just be passing you when you are done cutting the trail.

...and cut the tree up into firewood sized pieces, load it in the back as it slowly passes you, factory-line style -viola'! Multiple problems solved!

How difficult is it to convert that particular mog to a four-door?

Ed-
Not sure how difficult the conversion would be given the relative simplicity of the vehicle; I think the hard part would be finding the appropriate parts (at something approaching a reasonable price). You talking about a platform something like this:

My grandfather used to say he always wanted a truck that went slow enough that he could fix fences as it carried the bits along beside him.

All good. It is sitting in the back of the garage and is safely tucked away, so no real rush on my end.

I think that speed might be about right for the "20 speed" cascade box. They also have a 6 speed manual that also has a torque converter so you can put it in gear and come to a complete stop without having to shift into neutral.

Here's a link that covers gearing and speeds on the 6 speed. http://www.rockymountainmoggers.com/gears.html

The 20 speed goes stupid slow. I had to look at the tire/road contact patch just to be able to tell that we were actually moving.

------ Follow up post added April 29th, 2013 02:19 PM ------

here's a speed chart for the 20 speed

Not quite .08 kph. According to this chart .11 kph is the number

I think we have a profound question on our hands...as that 30m over an hour is significant...
Apparently it also depends a great deal on tire size as you would expect:

The only way to do this correctly is to conduct a first hand experiment of course.
