Not a 404, but a Mog

Post by David Dunn » Thu Sep 28, 2006 5:07 pm

Well, this isn't a 404, but this is the only Mog spot here. :wink:

Picked up my 1300L last Saturday and drove it the 400 miles home. Thought I'd share it with you.

Dokas are a bit harder to find than the conventional cabs, and have prices to go with them also. Were you wanting a SBU or a 406/416 model? There are 404 gasser Dokas out there too.

These dealers are at the top of my mind in the US.... there are several other dealers

Hi. I have owned a Unimog 1300 ex New Zealand Army for the last 11 years & man have we been places, through water up to the windsceen wipers, down banks that steap that gravel has lodged around the head lights at the bottom. I even maniged to get a correct winch for it, but they are not user friendly. The truck it self is magnificent. We have done some huge off road trips with other japanes suv's down the South Island for one that was for two weeks & some 2500 Km's long. They are easy to work on, I am a car repairer & just love it, the disc pads are the same as Mercdes 2500 car brakes front & rear. I would recomend any one to buy one, so long as you have a use & a shed to fit it in.

Hi. Me again, I would love to kown what that wing at the top rear of the cabin is for & how it works. The New Zeland trucks do not have them on.My guss is that it forces fresh air in to the rear of the truck. Please please let me know as after seeing that wing on lot of trucks in photos it has bugged me. Also I cann't stop dust comeing into the rear of the truck on gavel roads.

The "wing" is there to store your camuflage netting, or to roll and store you tarp on top. It's common on German army mogs, not the Swiss.
