Looks like a tractor. Doesn't freightliner import a version of the UNIMOG?

What does UNIMOG stand for?

Nice... Those tires are fat - most of the ones I ever see have tall skinny Continentals or Michelins.

There's a sweet hardtop Doka that I drive by occasionally that's been for sale for a while. I figure I can talk him down to about 20K; now I just have to convince the wife... "But honey, it's a 4-door Mercedes :D "

Look no offense to this site or Toyotas in general, but that truck will put ANYTHING in its place!

We called the local freightliner mog dealer a while ago looking for 406 axle seals and the sales droid who answered the phone said "Um, we don't have a parts dept, these things never break."

Someone asked about the name...
UNIversal-MOtorGerät (universal-power-unit) or UNIMOG

My bro-in law just left a job at Tarheel Sterling in NC. They sold Mogs and he would bring them home when I came to visit. The trannies are bad a$$. The shifting is all electronic. You can pre-select your gears. The axles generate so much heat so they put a "fan" on the drive shaft. Very fun to drive.

Isn't that an oxymoron? :flipoff2:

mercedes style, mercedes class, mercedes gadgetry, mercedes power, mercedes handling but not mercedes quality. My mom's got an '02 E320 and it has had so many stupid problems. All sorts of stupid electronic quirks. Cats went bad at 22k miles. Windshield was pitted like crazy at 25k miles, second winshield(OEM Mercedes) is now pitted at 33k miles.
