  1. DUTCH MILITARY DOKA

    Unimog
    I think that Doka cans are so heavy that some Recommend a cross bar in the holes that the grill aligns in. Might help with the dimples? One of our groups MOGs has much bigger dimples than any of the pictures shown. A cross bar was recommended .. I think by Scott.
  2. What kind of Unimog do I want?

    Unimog
    I did the trip last year, it was awesome and it’s a beautiful place. I highly recommend it and if you get a chance to look at some trucks you might want to bring over that’s a plus too! Atlas 4X4 is also in that area.
  3. Who has purchased Unimog(s) from Expedition Imports or Atkinson Vos?

    Unimog
    Scott is a solid provider. Straight shooter. He has to be... there is a lot of clowning around out there and he runs a legitamate business. He won’t advise you wrong with regards to bringing in a risky truck etc. That said would prepared to travel to see ANY Mog first hand. Picture can be very...
  4. What kind of Unimog do I want?

    Unimog
    ADF 1700s are being auctioned off. Though I’m not sure how long those will last. They are long of the appropriate age and very heavy duty. Only negative is the right hand drive thing which I’ve heard is not that hard to convert to left. Apparently the wheel is connected by a chain and sprocket...
  5. Reversing Camera - where is the reverse switch?

    Unimog
    My back up camera has a wire that is near the camera. So the best place to look it up it’s actually right at the light itself. Which backup camera are you implementing?
  6. 2014 U4000 DOKA

  7. New Sneakers for my U1300L

    Unimog
    Price on these 20x11” wheels went crazy in Europe. Last one I’ve seen around. https://www.ebay.de/itm/20x11-11x20-HUTCHINSON-WI-1301-B-62161-Unimog-10-Loch-ALUFELGEN/132684977154?hash=item1ee4a41402:g:8BcAAOSwCLNbOIC0 With all the different models available as surplus By the time I figured out...
  8. What did you do for your Unimog today?

    Unimog
    Koni shocks! Oh yeah! Ride quality was much improved! Noticeable over my 32 year old ones! Get some from Scott at expedition! Worth every penny. Also cool looking!
  9. U1300L Hubs leaking - tips?

    Unimog
    Yes that’s right. The 406/416 are very similar to the 435 and should have the same seals. I’m not sure if the drum brake models were different, but I’m pretty sure that the disc brake models are the same parts. I’m sure Scott will chime in and confirm that those of the right parts. As long...
  10. PORTAL TECHNIQUES ( pictures please )

    Unimog
    Cool ideas. I’ve been able to catch most of my oil just using a water bottle. No there is a little bit of a drippy mess here and there.

  12. U1300L - factory aircon?

    Unimog
    Nice DOKA.
  13. U1300L - factory aircon?

    Unimog
    Wow trucktor! are all of those your trucks? There may actually be a version of the rooftop unit that mounts to the hatch. Don’t have much detail on what that is though. It’s just a rumor at this point. My friend Charlemagne’s military 1350 had a square standard hatch so he was able to fit the...
  14. UHN MILITARY W/ EXTRAS

    Unimog
    Yup. three-piece axles versus two piece and the dashboard were at the giveaway that it was a BW 1300L But I spoke to the man face-to-face and he is a huge enthusiast and has done a great job on the truck.

    Unimog
    Me And my posse I was traveling with all thought it was the best looking truck at the Unimog club show in Gaggenau last year. But we are partial to military vehicles.
