5k: Uni-Mog Suspended: 1995 Range Rover Classic

Sometimes you need a truck to do a man’s job.  It might be that you’ve got a haul a few redwood tree trunks around your sprawling estate, or much out an elephant’s stable, but these aren’t jobs you can do in some old Yota pickup or a modern crossover.  You need something ridonkulous…like this 1995 Range Rover Classic currently bidding here on eBay for $2,550 reserve-not-met with $7,500 buy-it-now, located in Sandy, UT.

The Range Rover classic is a formidable off-roader in its own right, but install the legs of a Mercedes-Benz UniMog (short for Universal-Motor-Gerat) and you’ve got a recipe for manly stuff.  This Range Rover now has enough ground clearance to drive over upright propane bottles…if you are into that kind of thing.

The car uses its original 3.9 liter Rover V8, but the transmission is now a Chevrolet 700R4 auto with transfer case, mated to independently lockable hubs front and rear. Per the seller, the car does have some problems, including a slipping transmission and an engine that doesn’t want to start…plus the interior looks like its been driven by a porcupine.
