    Default Unimog 419?

    New to overlanding in general, but Unimog's have always fascinated me since Jurassic Park.

    There's a Unimog 419 local to me ( has a slew of ;hydraulic tools, chain saw, jack hammer, drill )

    It seems a bit... squat for what most 'mog builds I've seen, but curiousity has me.

    Sounds like an ex-US military SEE (Small Emplacement Excavator)
    Certainly not the best platform for 'overlanding'

    The military took an ultra reliable vehicle and made it difficult to work on and somewhat unreliable. They are very stiffly sprung.
