BEST ALL AROUND Bug Out Vehicle, and WHY? I answer! Read description, Important info.
Ultimate Bug Out Vehicle, and WHY? I answer your questions!
This is the coolest 4x4 around. At least I'm entitled to my opinion.
Maybe I enter it in Top Truck Challenge?
What do you think. I'll let you voice your opinion.
Be nice to me, I'm nice to you!
This IH Scout has a 93 GM turbo diesel
that is mechanically injected ( no electronics!)
Manual trans: NV4500
Transfer case from Jeep Dana 300 Just like the 1980 Scouts had, but the
Jeep one mated to the NV 4500.
Dana 44 axles with tall ratios for MPG
The low on the t-case is plenty with the axles.
I considered a 7.3 Powerstroke but it is an electronic motor and heavy.
The 6.5 weighs 685 pounds with all the stuff on it.
The gas burning international 345 weighs about the same.
No spring sag here!
This "Bug Truk" was burning waste vegetable oil during the making of this
WVO some people call it. Also it burns any type of oil. Just needs to be
heated before it gets to the filter.
Things to come...YES paint! Also a snorkel for those deep water crossings.
I don't think I mentioned that all components axles, trans engine will be
remotely vented...up high. I don't water getting in those things. My ears
are still ringing! Head liner and rhino lining maybe even a radio. CB
shortwave etc. Heater, wipers. A winch was suggested by a watcher, you are
Remember this: If you do have the ultimate bug out vehicle (yours is the
ultimate bug out vehicle because it's YOUR'S!) and you think you can out
run an EMP like me, have a plan. Work your plan. Most important is this. If
we are facing a real situation of an EMP effecting electronics in cars etc.
Your vehicle will be one of the few out there rolling. Take this very
serious: When people start to panic, out goes the law and it's every man
for himself. The idea here is to avoid that. Thats why you have to have a
plan. Also, think about martial law. (read Wiki definition of Martial law
below)Once that happens, your ultimate bug out vehicle becomes GOLD to the
governing authorities! They WILL confiscate it. You worked so hard to
acquire/build it, why should someone else get the benefits from it? What
if, where do you go? Point A,B,C,D etc. How do you communicate with you
loved ones? YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN! They have to be a part of it. Make it
fun and every now and then have a prepper "fire drill". This may save you
life and theirs.
Prep, then LIVE. ETp.
Martial law is the imposition of military rule by military authorities over
designated regions on an emergency basis—(usually) only temporary—when
the civilian government or civilian authorities fail to function
effectively (e.g., maintain order and security, and provide essential
services), when there are extensive riots and protests, or when the
disobedience of the law becomes widespread. In most cases, military forces
are deployed to subdue the crowds, to secure government buildings and key
or sensitive locations, and to maintain order. Generally, military
personnel replace civil authorities and perform some or all of their
functions. In full-scale martial law, the highest-ranking military officer
would take over, or be installed, as the military governor or as head of
the government, thus removing all power from the previous executive,
legislative, and judicial branches of government.
Martial law can be used by governments to enforce their rule over the
public. Such incidents may occur after a coup d'état (Thailand 2006); when
threatened by popular protest (China, Tiananmen Square protests of 1989);
to suppress political opposition (Poland in 1981); to stabilize
insurrections or perceived insurrections (Canada, The October Crisis of
1970). Martial law may be declared in cases of major natural disasters,
however most countries use a different legal construct, such as a "state of
Martial law has also been imposed during conflicts and in cases of
occupations, where the absence of any other civil government provides for
an unstable population. Examples of this form of military rule include post
World War II reconstruction in Germany and Japan as well as the southern
reconstruction following the U.S. Civil War.
Typically, the imposition of martial law accompanies curfews, the
suspension of civil law, civil rights, habeas corpus, and the application
or extension of military law or military justice to civilians. Civilians
defying martial law may be subjected to military tribunal (court-martial).
Bug Out Vehicle- Retrofit Upgrade HID headlight
Many people have asked me "what is up with my headlights", well lately I
have had duct tape on them because I hadnt figured out how to finish my
project of doing a HID retro conversion. Basically taking the old halagen
headlights and replacing them with HID projectors from a newer SUV.
Upgrading. Now many people simply put "HID KITS" in there headlights just
replacing the bulb,which is a poor excuse for proper lighting. The original
housing cannot focus that much light and simply blinds everyone else on the
road. But when I pull up next to a wall and shine my lights along with a
range rover or BMW it would take a true lighting guru to tell which was
mine ,a 77 international scout or a 80,000 dollar BMW SUV.

Bronco II 2.9 Flowmaster 40
My Bronco II's current Exhaust. Im not
trying to be a "poser" or sound like a v8, I just wanted an Exhaust that sounded good to me. The middle of
the video is what I call the "jake brake" sound, at about 3500rpms under
compression braking on a hill the Exhaust will smooth out and produce a sound
similar to a jake brake, my friends have also noticed it too. The gauges on
the dash are also not a poser item, I find them to be important on a 2.9
and I put them on the dash for visibility purposes.
