    ( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The EarthRoamer XV-LTS F-550 Extreme Off-Road RV is the ultimate Zombiepocalypse Luxury Ride. If you need to go around the world in style and comfort and you need to do so off-road...this extreme recreational vehicle is perhaps the best and only choice.

    Riding around in a monstrosity like that only makes you a target for Survival poachers like myself. I only stock weapons, ammo and enough food and water until I can overtake dorks like these and kipe their supplies.

    My RC is my BoV, but if money were no option, I'd go bigger. :cool:

    Mercedes-Benz Zetros 2733 A 6×6 (MY personal favorite, because it looks ready for a Pittsburgh winter!)

    The Earthroamer is a nice overlanding vehicle if you have the scratch to buy one.

    Great stuff here, for folks who have everything BUT their BoV selected! For the less mechanically-inclined - who'd rather buy than build - this list is for you!

    Gunner Fabrication’s Dodge 3500 (And ya' GOTTA have MOPAR!!! :cool: )

    [​IMG]

    Our final post-apocalyptic harbinger of doom comes to us in the way of a simple and very dangerous automobile. This Dodge 3500 truck, which was built by Gunner Fabrication, has been outfitted with a custom bed that houses a .50 caliber-rated ring mount, storage compartments for AR rifles, an easy-access ammo can, 12-inch floodlights, a hardcore skid-plate, and a 10,000-pound winch for hauling oneself out of danger. A roof rack supports extra lighting along with a FLIR thermal camera system, and the engine even has a protective cage around it that can be folded down for maintenance.

    This off-road rambler also comes equipped with massive tires, raised suspension for corpse clearance, a customizable brush-guard, and an A-10 Warthog joystick with trigger controls for all forward facing lights and a thumb-toggle for easy transmission controls.

    Pros: Pre-built to be outfitted with heavy artillery, extra rifle and ammo storage, easy to drive, nimble

    Cons: No heavy-duty armor, no caging on glass, gun turret operator remains exposed, limited passenger seating

    Not a prepper myself but if I was I think I would avoid the fancy modified stuff and stick to something with a bone stock chassis, seems to me as though having something common would make scavenging parts easier.

    Since you mentioned Paramount Group, why not the Marauder or the Matador?

    They can the Marauder if they have the $$$$ but not sure about the Matador. I just became aware of it. Might have to go to South Africa to get one however. Weapons not included of course. :p

    Van's always make a good bug out vehicle good protect and more room the trucks with shells, they can be had used for a good price. If you have the coin for a new one even better.

    You can Pick up armored cars for really cheap $2000.00 and up. Upgrade the bumper's and even add four wheel drive.

    I'll be zipping around on a off road bike that runs on fry oil. I can refuel at any fast food restaurant. I could ride for centuries before I hit all the grease joints. and the french fry smell will throw off the zombies.
    zombies don't like french fries.
