    So i have decided to invest in a bug out vehicle and after lots of research i have narrowed it down to a diesel station wagon made between 1975 and 1985. I like these because they are generally more affordable cause lets face it...nobody want them, and for fuel efficiency, gas tank size, EMP...

    I have always wanted a truck project. Something that I could rebuild, add some custom features, fix up and call my own. When friends and family members come over I would tell them all about the truck, what I did to it, the attention to detail, and just brag on my accomplishment. There is just...

    I'm in the market for one of the two and have been on governmentliquidation.com for a week or two lookin around. It seems the 2.5 ton trucks are few and far between nowadays but the 5 tons are a dime a dozen and about the same price. Can someone point me in the right direction here? Are they...

    So, the wife and I were driving around town and we saw an old truck for sale. It's an old Ford F250 Ranger XLT, the wife and I are guessing a '78 or '79. Asking price is $2000. For reference, here's a picture of the truck model, from Wikipedia not of the actual truck. I stopped and knocked on...

    Nothing like a little tornado to kick your butt into gear. I've got the diesel genny in the back of the truck, with a 110 gallon buddy tank in addition to the 35 on board. I can drive ~ 1900 miles, or run the genny for maybe a month. Knowing all the work I have to do after our tornado, I've...

    i am giving serious thought into picking up a used 12g single shot, probably an H&R, and turning it into a truck gun by cutting the barrel to 20in or less and adding a shell cady, sling, and probably some iron sights. I think this would be a good idea because i can buy a couple other barrels...
