Mike and Jordanee, could this be the traveling rig you have been searching for?

keep some kind of decal kit on stand by and camo up and if the SHTF then you might look like some kind of military patrol instead of well prepared civilians. Besides, no better than I know you folks I sure would not want to approach your vehicle during a situation like that.

I don't know.... "and 48' tires" sounds like a bit much to me. Sounds like a really HIGH profile target, with a wicked high center of gravity.

The color is perfect though!

Those were not too bad when we use to run them through the swamps on MacDill. Ran them around the Arizona desert a time or two and did fine going over rocks and through soft sand in the tank trails too. The trucks were loaded with gear.
