Default Bug out Vehicles Photo Gallery!

The vehicle that will get you to safety should the need and the opportunity arise. You can live out of it for days if need be, or indefinitely if you are particularly skilled at the art of procuring fuel. It will carry food, a reasonable amount of water, weapons, ammo, a change of clothes or two, etc., etc. This, of course, is a hypothetical. Any sane person working with more than one brain cell will understand that these are basically just off road vehicles that are at your disposal when and if needed and that the unlikely use of one would require some good timing and great execution. Obviously, the old adage that it's better to have and not need than to need and not have applies here. I understand that is unlikely to stop a select few who believe they have it all figured out from thread-jacking. Oops - too late. by knuckle draggers.

Show us what you have and tell us about it.

Here's what I have right now:

06 Tacoma Access cab V6 4x4
Icon suspension
Front and rear ARB locking diffs
On-board air/tank
Trail armor
And a bunch of other little stuff that doesn't really pertain to reaching safety.

Still to come:
Camper shell/sleeping pod/doghouse/TV room.
Fridge, solar and batteries.



This has been a pretty solid rig for me that can get pretty far out of the way. Not as capable as a Jeep, but arguably more reliable over the long run and definitely more versatile.

Toyota FJ Cruiser 4x4 with earthquake kit, med kit, and spare clothes. Earthquake kit has water, food, tools, etc. CB radio installed but I may replace it with a ham radio.

Vehicle itself has skid plates and rock sliders for the occasional off-road adventure.

Like the OP, I chose a Toyota truck for the reliability. It's also very capable off-road.

I would just jump in the old truck



02 F250 4X4 7.3, PC 6 ˝ lift, PC 37x12.50R-17's, Warn PP HD Winch, ZENA welder, Jotto Console, Scanner, Icom HAM radio, 91 Gal. Aux fuel cell, Diamondback HD bed cover, Warn Hubs, dual steering stab, Step2 Bed steps, AIS, 4" t/b exhaust with Aero turbine muffler, backup buddy lights, Mag-Hytec diff cover & tranny pan, SGII, 6.0 T Cooler, ELF7405 with oil By-Pass, IH bellowed ups, Gen 2 FRx, HPX, CCV Mod, SS brake lines, CAT ELC, ez down t-gate, Fumoto drain, Rev/Cargo LEDs, 4 pillar gauge with ISSPRO, DP Tuner, Rigid Industries light bar, various hand tools, air tools, and fluids. I also keep a full size spare in the bed.

By the time I load in the food, water, clothing, firearms, and ammo with a few other odds and ends, the bed is about full. I would not call it a bug out vehicle as it's basically my daily driver.

Thanks. You know, it's probably a lot more expensive now than it was back when it was done. I think there's a good $17k of mods into this truck, but so much of it isn't needed unless you're going to make a habit of finding yourself on really tight trails and risking body damage.
You could get along just fine with a sub $1000 lift(Toytec Bilstein 5100) and locking diffs. for getting you out of most predicaments and over the majority of obstacles.
As far as the cost of a truck - if you're looking at a Toyota, I wouldn't expect to get away for any less than $12k-$15k for a used 1st or 2nd gen Tacoma 4x4 with $100k+ mileage.
I really like the like 2.7 inline 4. It doesn't have the giddyup of the 6, but it carries itself just fine and is arguably the better engine for long range off road trips. So much is made of HP, but for an escape vehicle, capability, durability and range are the most important aspects in my opinion. I'm thinking with an overlanding type application. But there's no doubt the V6 can get out of it's own way with no trouble at all.

Thanks appreciate the info.
100k+ miles seems like a ton coming from the world of European luxury sports cars. Sure the engines will last but out of warranty high mileage purchases are somewhat risky.

Obviously I understand trucks to be much different, but can you give me an idea of what to look for and what to avoid? I'm mostly interested in reliable trucks that can tow the bike/jetskis I mentioned and handle some offroading if necessary. Saving money is always great, but I'm okay spending between $25-30k. Something rugged, but with a decent interior would be nice. Any suggestions in that range?

I realize it might be a lot to ask, so if you have a particular blog that covers this kind of information well I'm happy to read on my own. Searching myself yields too much conflicting information for me to discern, so anything experienced owners can share would be hugely appreciated.

If you or anyone else wanted to post a few specific ads (even if they're far away) just as examples of what is good or bad about those vehicles it would probably help a ton. I'm a very fast learner, just need to be pointed in the right direction.

Thanks again! PS: the color of your truck is sweeeet.

My only advice, because car publications are often biased towards those who pay them advertising bucks, is to visit forums specific to the model of vehicle you're searching for. There you will find threads on all of the problems owners are having and be able to judge what is an actual issue or not. The Tacoma, for as good as it is, has some gremlins just like any other truck. For me, the engine is the most important, so if it's known to be more or less bomb-proof(Tacoma 2.7L), I will lean towards that. But given your budget, the world is pretty much your oyster. There's a TON of good stuff out there in that price range.

Oh, and the blue is not my favorite, but it's definitely very photogenic!

Ok thanks. Yeah that advice is the same for cars - find the club forum & trust that.
If you or anyone else stumbles upon anything in the coming weeks please feel free to share - I'd appreciate the help!

You got it. A friend of mine is looking right now, so I'll keep an eye out.

For me, personally, I'm out there a lot and have probably saved more in potential body repairs than the armor cost. I don't expect to be able to get that far with a vehicle in a SHTF situation. But however far it can get me beyond what a stock vehicle would is a good bonus. If I have to drive it way off the side of a trail and ditch it, then the farther the better. But I have camo netting for that, too

The H3 Hummer is a good choice for a bug out. It has a low locker and both 2w and 4 wheel real drive modes. Available in 5 or 8 cylinders for your mpg,,,

I always wondered if a emp would affect a vehicle. Maybe Im thinking of it wrong but how many videos of cars getting struck by lightning have I seen and the truck or car keeps driving .

Bugging out? Hell I am the bug out location.

I do have a plan to go if needed and the people that need to know already know all about it.

Good question.

My vehicle is equipped to get me home in an emergency/natural disaster. If home is not an option, it's equipped to get me somewhere safe.

I try not to let the fuel tank get below half full. On the highway, a full tank will take me about 270 miles. Going off road will greatly reduce range, but in the event of traffic-jammed roads, this vehicle gives me the option of going off-road.

Need to know what kind of situation. Too many end of the world situations would make any truck or car useless. Try commuting in any major urban area to get the idea. My final fallback, time to move vehicle is a full-ridged, single-speed mountain bike with a single wheel trailer. Quite, efficient and basically go-anywhere.

Bugging out without a place to go is just ensuring that you are going to die. Thinking you will be welcome anywhere will get you killed.

Remember your tactical bug out macho wagon needs to carry everything you will need to sustain life from that point on. Fact is, your life won't fit in your SUV or Toyota pickup.

I live in the mountains, there will be no welcome mat out for people that don't have their own resources. Everything I give you takes from my family.

Chances are you will just fall victim to all the other people on the road trying to get somewhere that doesn't exist anymore or is owned and protected by the people there now.

Stay home but have a vehicle that will get you out when the time comes...

These threads are hilarious. Most likely there will be some kind of mass die off in which most of us will be a part of, no matter how prepared we are. It is a huge assumption that you are one of the "lucky" 2-3% of the world population that is left.

However it is kind of fun to buy cool gadgets and gear thinking it will make a difference.

Living in CA all my life I can tell you the one thing that scares me the most is out of control wildfires. If the government collapses I hope you have your own personal fire department because the whole west is iterally going to burn to the ground and there won't be a damn thing you can do about it except try and run away from the flames.

Nice ride. How to you deal with the steps behind the front axle? I have come down of a number of rocks and if it were not for my rock sliders, would have destroyed my running board.
