I'm going for a Jeep that I can go deep into the wilderness and STAY there for a long time. Solar panels, plenty of lighting, totally self-contained, water tankage, storage for fuel and supplies, etc. I can keep plenty of weapons and ammo in there too
That vehicle is in the running. I would also put this one on the list.
2004 Jeep Wrangler l 1946 Willys CJ2A l 1988 BMW 325 l 2009 Triumph Thruxton
It has solar, plenty of storage, go anywhere capabilities. A local wheeler here in my area bought one not too long ago (paid for by the Gov't for search and rescue) but it's his and he's come out with us a couple times. Amazing vehicle. And it isn't nearly as top heavy as it looks as if it would be. It has an amazingly low centre of gravity.
Or...you could buy mine and I could have the fun of starting all over again:
TrXus 35 MTs, 5:13 gears, D44 front and rear, Alloy USA inner and outer shafts, stock Rubi locker front, ARB rear, VIAIR constant duty OBA, Fox 10" 2.0 Emulsion shocks, RE 4.5" springs, RE long-arm, Warn manual hib conversion kit, ORO u-turn steering, CTM joints, Currie Anti Rock (not installed in pic), Xenon flat flares, two 100W IPF rear spots, two front 100W IPF spots, two Hella 500 front spots, two 150W front Cessna landing lights on windshield (it gets dark in our forests!), Deka (EastPenn) AGM high power battery, Warn XD9000i winch, full size spare, two 50mm ammo cans in back for storage, KargoMaster rack for extras, etc., etc., etc.
a.k.a. - "Industrial"
Edit: - Oh...did I mention that it has your required gun rack?

Reason: I forgot!
Any vehicle I would consider for this type of build would have to be a Jeep.
OD Green, Desert Tan, or Flat Black being the colors of preference.
The jeeps posted in this thread are all gorgeous! I wish I could bring myself to krylon my TJ, but it's just not beat up enough to warrant that decision. When it comes time to repaint however, there is no doubt that I will be doing the painting myself.
