When we first started following this project, I told you that a Unimog has always been on my list of off-road wants. They are super cool, have amazingly well thought out technology, and yet are as simple as a tractor because in a lot of the world that is exactly what they are used as. No, seriously. There are a lot of things about a Unimog that most people don’t realize they can do, or that they are used for. They plow fields, plow snow, move dirt, haul soldiers, dump trash, sweep roads, trim trees, and so much more. But what we love about them is how tough they are, how much ground clearance they have, how big a tire they will fit without a lift, and the fact that they are ugly enough to be cool. Yep, we dig them. And so do our friends at The Outfit.
In the latest videos you’ll watch them take the Mog out camping with zero customization so as to see what she can do, what they need to change, and to make sure they haven’t made a huge mistake. They didn’t by the way, but there are definitely some things that have to get changed in order to make this Unimog into something that will be expedition friendly for the two of them and a little one. After the trip they’ll cover what is good, what is bad, and how they are going to proceed, before starting on the disassembly process.
Check out all three of the latest videos below and stay tuned as we’ll bring you updates as they come in moving forward.
