Gee!

I guess I've been doing it wrong all these years...

When I had no money; I hardened a 2wd, installed better tires along with limited slip differential, improved fuel system, stiffened frame, ignition system and water resistant mods on the engine.

When I got a bit more money: I bought a Jeep YJ and did the standard mods.

Now I can afford nearly anything I still am a Jeep man: but now its tending toward full out crawling/mudding (about all that will be near stock after the next round; is the body and modified frame).

The purpose of the vehicle is to transport me (and limited supplies) to one of several BOLs which all have stored supplies.
No need for a moving van, no need for a trailer house.

Enjoy!

Each person has to do what really seems right for them. I don't see large as better. Having been through evacuations before, I can say for sure I want a agile vehicle that will get me around situations and obstacles. I want something that gets at least 20 miles to a gallon in good traffic. You need enough vehicle to get you away from the danger. Motor homes would not be a good choice for me. Good luck to you.

I agree!

In relation, the pickup truck off-road world, I class full-size pickups as too big and too heavy. Yes they can carry more gear and payload but that comes with a price which is their size and weight. The heavier the vehicle, the more ground clearance they are going to need to avoid the sinking axle effect!

Jeep-types are the best off-roaders but that too comes with a price, less cargo capacity and payload and are too nimble for higher speeds on the roads.

I prefer the mid-sized pickup category, right in the middle and solid ground clearance for their weight to build upon right from the factory and you can increase payload numbers likewise!
