    Ex ADF Unimog.

    I’ve always wanted a Unimog because reasons. As I’m going to start building a shed in my back yard I thought that was as good of a reason as any. So last week I purchased one.
    It’s pretty easy to drive with the 8spd box. On road you start in 5th and you’re in 8th by 50kph to the dizzying top speed of 85kph at 2,800rpm. There aren’t any puttabarrainitforfiftybucksanddomadskidsplans just some taller tyres to help try and get it to sit in 90kph at about the same revs. Will do WTA intercooler and maybe a more modern turbo to help it do a few more KPH up hills along with a little injector pump tweaking. Will also fit EGT gauge.

            What the fuck is going on with the 3 rings of studs on the wheel? Two I get, but three?

                          At $20k the ROI isn’t there. 2 years ago you could get the OD from Merc for 10k now it’s double the price for 15kph.

                            Tradie I did my apprenticeship for got a job working on these things...bucket list item.He rates them highly.
                            an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

                              There is an element of clown shoes hilarity to it. On the (long) drive home I pulled up next to a New Dodge Ram in full Boomer spec. Chrome wheels, lift kit and running lights. Rams roof height was below door window height. We all knew who had the smallest genitalia at that set of lights I’ll tell you.
