I woud like to build a serious off road 4x4 Unimog but my new shop only has 8 foot high doors.....I know my mistake !!! Is there any model Mog that will go through a 8' high door ? Must be diesel, short wheelbase. When I finish, the cab roof will be the highest pint on the truck.

Thanks
Paul

Better Park Outside

I have to cover mine with a tarp and tie it down.. I don't think you will find one that low.

Unimog Model

Paul,

I have a 406 which is a model that fits your description, a 6 cylinder diesel, very short wheel base (one inch shorter than my Porsche) sits on big MPT 81 tires, my shop doors are EXACTLY 8ft and the Mog makes it with a couple of inches to spare, if it is too critical you can air down to make it. If you don’t have an air source you can make a connection to the air tank and use the Mog air supply to air the tires.

In case you never got a real number...

A hard cab 416 (U1100) with 12.5x20 tires is spec'ed at 2340mm height (92"). Depending on options, they can be higher. Mine has a extended cab roof which raises it another 4"...

Also, tires vary in height. I've seen factory specs on 12.5x20's anywhere from 45" to 49" tall...

Just checking out the forum here and came across this one...a bit old, but I will repsond anyway. I have a 78 406 and an 8' high door. It just sneaks under it with 12.5 x 20's.
