If you're learning something, then I'm content...the ebb and flow of information is one of the single biggest reasons that I'm doing any of this. Keeping up a thread in addition to a pair of TJ's is a lot of work, but it's worth the effort if it provides one with opportunities to teach, learn, and evolve.

Knowledge is never too dear.

Believe me when I tell you that it's not just hair ties and a nail file.
So I was right! It is hair ties, a nail file, and a stuffed chicken!

to be fair, you have me thinking of my own EDC toolkit.i was thinking about it before, but not like i have been since seeing your loadout. it's going to be hard to go more minimalistic than you and still be remotely practical, but that's my goal.

speaking of EDC, you inspired me to pick up the leatherman surge with the bit driver extender and the 40 pc bit kit. i wouldn't want to HAVE to rely on that for most things, but it's a start in the right direction.

Cute little attempt at a zombie truck but there are a lot of fatal flaws.
exposed glass should be covered in metal mesh or expanded metal.
Uber urban tire tread, needs mud tires even in a city where zombie sludge could quickly make the streets slick
obviously that thing isnt going to be fast for quick get aways
its just too damn light being caught in a horde of the undead would quickly show they would turn that over like a toy
spikes on the front while it looks cool could "stick" a corpse to the front of an already less than powerful and too light truck. Something more like a v blade snowplow inspired push bumper would be a better idea.
And finally the zombie cage needs to be enclosed with strong lexan, you dont want a zombie to be able to grab you or bite you or leak fluids on you while your trying to conduct your business the open cage also provides grab points for zombies trying to eat you

If i was going to spend money outfitting a vehicle to that level of detail... I would not have chosen a Dihatsu Maybe an S10 or Ford Ranger, with extensive driveline mods, at the lightest.
