Default added a new toy
Picked up another Swiss Army surplus vehicle. A 91 Puch 230GE. These are the same as the Mercedes G wagons just badged under the Puch name.

no, it is an M102 4 cylinder gas motor. Drove it back from Vallejo Ca. and it managed 19.5 miles to the gallon. This one I am going to keep pretty much stock. So far just added seat belts to rear seats a radio and when the temps drop will install an AC unit to make things more comfy in the summers. I don't see a need for any other changes. Has locker in the rear, so that will do for what I intend to use it for. I can always take out my 6x pinz if I need more get around ability.

factory listed top speed is 90mph. I have run it up to 85mph just to see how it does. It will run at those speeds but is much happier running 65 to 70 mph. For a military truck that is pretty fast. I am used to driving an Isuzu NPR for work which starts to overrun the diesel engine at 60mph and my pinzgauers that run 60 mph (on flat ground). Makes this truck seem like a speed demon. The idea for the G wagon is to have a military vehicle I can drive daily and take out for day trips. Still going to use the Pinz for any longer offroad/overland trips.
