If you can find one...

1977-78 Ford F150 with the 351 M 4x4. engine and the granny gear tranny-if you can find one. I have WITTINESSES that saw me pull a semi outta 2 feet of mud ( my driveway)...

With my mobile home attached to the back of it.

Lol

One tough truck...

I have a 84 full size Bronco with a 351 in it. It will go through some mud and it's a blast to drive with the top off.

Anything with an older diesel or turbo diesel, toyota or isuzu would be ideal. I've had a couple of old troopers (pre 1991). worked great and very simple

Any 1960-1987 diesel mercedes, volvo, toyota, dodge, international or nissan. Dodge didn't come out with a diesel truck until 91 and used the same mechanical motor till 98. I think a medium sized dirt bike is your best bet.

One thing people forget, is yes the motor might be mechanical, but your automatic transmission still uses a computer! lol

a friend of mine has one of these, and they are f*cking awesome, 6x6, multi fuel, not very nimble about going around things because they go over them:

93 or older Dodge Ram diesel.

or Imported diesel Toyota 4runner or Landcruiser.

Lots of other choices depending on your personal variables.

I rebuilt a 4runner and converted to diesel. Very happy with it.

Cheer

definately agree on the pre 93 dodge cummins. you won't be drag racing in it but the drivetrains last FOREVER. pre 83 chevy or gmc truck/blazer(jimmy) with a 4 bolt 350. if you are not an emptard then late 80s to mid 90's toyota truck or 4 runner.

one that can get down backroads, lasts forever, mechanically sound, easy to work on, wont die, no modern electronics and can be shut down by tptb, please give me some ideas, years and models of trucks to look for as im looking to buy thank you

We just got a Chevy Silverado 4x4 1995 for $1500.00 Rusted spots but who cares? 5.7 v8 (350 cu in) Easy to work on, plentiful parts, new and used and scrap, lots of mechanics who know it inside and out. I had several chevys over the years, my Hondas were less prone to failure but more expensive to fix and fewer resources to get them fixed. That is why I went back to Chevy as a survival vehicle. Good Luck!

You can get a pretty good horse for this price and he will be suit for such a scenario since gas won't be there.

Toyota 4X4 w/ the 22R Engine... You can easily find one for under your budget.

Also, mid 80's to late 90's Dodge 4X4 w/ the CUMMINS 12V Diesel. (Find one that hasn't been modded...) Bullet Proof and will burn some creative fuels. Diesel / Bio / Veg / Used Motor Oil / ATF in a pinch /

Subaru. Enough Said.
