The Mog Shop’s “Mule” Unimog 404

Unimog® Shop August 25, 2011

This Unimog was used by Nick and the mog shop to develop and test product.

What started out as a 1970 Swiss Unimog 404 this Unimog is anything but ordinary now.  Just look at the list of upgrades and you’ll see…..he has spent a ton of time on this Mog.  I would love to have this Unimog down in Moab, Utah.

Here it is in action at the Chile Challenge Extreme

or here in Moab, Utah making Potatoe Salad Hill look ridiculously easy

  1. How much money do you have in this BEAST? I’m in the planning stages of building a truck and this is virtually what I’m making except I plan on incorporating a 4ws system and having an enclosed cab (I like my creature comforts every now and then!).

    This same Unimog was on craigslist in 2012 for $5,500 in Houston,TX looks like you have put new tires on it cleaned it up a bit but $25k I don’t think so.

    • Sorry woodlads but you are WRONG, different mog!

      This is my personal truck built by me in Dallas, never been to Houston.

      I have the truck you are talking about in my shop now for service, very different and not any where near as well built.

      Next time you post, check your facts first!
