Jim, those trucks will go just about anywhere! IMO, they were one of the best 4x4's of their time. still some prize them heavily. IIRC, they even used them in WWII as well.

What if in the near future with supply and demand issues , petrol becomes not practical or un-affordable . "WORST CASE SCENARIO" , what kind of wheeled vehicle runs on nothing..? I've been pricing "MULES" , yes , mules..! It is possible that the quest for fuel may be as much a problem as food..!

Maybe I'm looking too deep here , but , something I can see as a potential problem. Feet will get me from point A to point B. To share the "work-load",
I may need some other means of muscle. Fuel is something to look at..!
In five years or whenever , will I be able to get fuel..?

That also bring to mind , (HOW USEFUL" will my generator be..?
Wind , water , decomposition , sun , other back-up sources of power..?

Just a thought..!

It seems that, outside of model specifics, a vehicle of this sort should have a few attributes...

Space for what you MUST carry...bigger for a family of 7, smaller for a single person.
Some fuel extraction mechanism, electric or hand pump.
Some defensive angle; camo, quiet, bullet proof, inconspicuous or disguised....
Some terrain attribute; fast and powerful, 4x4, narrow, snorkel...something to craft a plan around.
And if you can get all that out of a rental....you are scoring high!
