    Yea, I should have specified that the top one is. The link has more French crapola and Unimogs four wheeling! Ain't a K-5 in da bunch!


    Unimogs aren't bad ugly. IMO.

    Not to offend you - they are german, but FAR AWAY from Unimogs.
    They are Mercedes trucks (available as 4x2, 4x4, 6x2, 6x6), mostly built in the 70s and 80s. Maybe still produced under license in Africa :confused:

    Tough trucks in the 30.000 to 55.000lbs GVW range (seems a bit heavier on the pictures though :grin: ), but not comparable with the Unimogs (which are way better offroad!!!)

    I saw the Symbol in the grill and had typed out Mercedes but changed it. Not that familiar with Unimogs. I've seen 'em of course, but haven't paid much attention to 'em. I do stand/sit corrected. Thanks.:grin:

    I wonder how many K5's on this site can claim these kinds of specs???

    UniMogs are AWESOME! If only I had unlimited money and garage space..... [/sigh]
