  1. Hello,

    I’ll try and keep this brief, but being brief isn’t one of my specialties. First, I’ve never owned or driven a UNIMOG, yet I instinctively know I want one. Having been a tractor-trailer driver for years, and owning a Ram 2500 4X4 I am not expecting a pleasant riding experience at all. I also understand they can be a bit loud inside..But your own UNIMOG intrigues and worries me. I am interested in it and we will suggest that this contact is along the preliminary lines of communication. I understand why you shortened it, but I’m curious what that makes it like to drive on the road; and since I see there’s a license plate on the rear, I expect it is able to be registered and driven on public roads, at least where you are. Again, not knowing a ton about UNIMOGS, I know if I had my ultimate choice and could afford to make it a reality; I’d prefer a diesel DOKA model. But that’s not going to happen. I’ll avoid the most stupid question as I already realize the air conditioner is between putting the top down and rolling down windows. But does it have heat still? I am moving to Iowa at the end of this month and I hear Winters there can be harsh, ala part of the reason I’m interested. Or maybe I should say excuse why I’m interested. I don’t have the ability visually or otherwise to park your rig next to one of those former military FLU models with the front loader and backhoe implement on it, but it seems like if you were able to find or afford one of those, you could have made virtually these same mods to that as easily as you did this one. Unless you bought it this way of course. I can tell you, I’d not be interested in rock climbing. But I could envision getting into and out of terrain that is difficult even with a standard four-wheel drive. So one thing initially I am curious about, assuming it doesn’t have the higher speed portal axles is; how fast will it easily go on roadways? I guess I should have started first with do you still have it? If you still have it and if we find a way to agree on it, we’ll have to figure out how to get you paid, how to get it to me in Iowa, etc. But one step at a time, I guess. So if you still have it and can open an initial conversation with me that would be great. I don’t want to get your false hopes up as I’m sure has happened a few times with such a vehicle. Just looking at your photos and nothing more, I can tell you, I’d want to source replacement front fender mud deflectors for it since I won’t be rock climbing, I’d need those. See? I wasn’t the least bit brief. I’m just not good at that, really.
