The Canadian Gov't is about to auction off what's left of their fleet of Bombardier/VW Iltis'.
Thinking of picking one up for cheap fun.

similar to the old m151's the us had. if an iltis could be had with the turbo diesel option, that would be excellent!

Not sure exactly. I'm sure it's a few thousand across the country. Not sure when the auctions start either.

This makes a great desk and a great bug out vehicle. You can literally drive it out of the house loaded with all our important documents.


If you live on a farm there is always option P.

Dont' waste your cash on an Iltis...I drove 'em in the army...on the very rare time that they actually ran

Remember that were built by the lowest bidder and any spares are considered "restricted kit" so even though the army will never use the NOS parts they have; a civillian will never see them. That means that you might have to rely on a VW dealer for parts

A beat up Jeep TJ would be a much better deal.

No pictures of mine on the work computer but I have a 2000 F-250 diesel with tool box and bed behind the seat, set up for dogs and all gear. It's not any flashier than any other vehicle out there and is normal for Wyoming - it's not obvious. Granted, I will mostly be bugging in (own a small ranch) but since it is close to the interstate it might be necessary to leave if troops come through in which case I am ready to load up the cattle and horses and flee to the mountains for a month. Horse trailer is ready to leave with all supplies - again, just a stock trailer and nothing fancy.

Here is my 2000 F-150 Fx4 Offroad Package. It is a F-250 with a F-150 body, it has upgraded shocks, rear axle, 3 inch factory lift, 1/4 steel skid plates over the tank, t-case, and front diff. It can carry 7700 pounds in the bed and can tow much more. I was thinking about some offroad lights behind the grill but I don't know. any suggestions guys?

1998 Supercharged Grand Prix GTP. Sits WAY to low for anything off road but, gets anywhere I need to go exceptionally fast and great on gas to boot.

Anywhere it cant go, I go on foot.

I think you are looking at the GVWR being 7700lbs on that pickup. Probably wieghs around 6000lbs so your more like 15-1700lbs in the bed.
