    $69,500 or lower is a bargain for one of these.

    And the solid surface is not necessary either.

      With 8 speeds, I would think 55-65 would be a highway speed. My Pinzgauer 712 6×6 could do 55……on a good day.

      I own a U1300L and with the fast axles you can cruise at 55 mph with no trouble and the tach is comfortable at 2550 RPM. I have owned a couple different models and years of Mogs and this one is the most universal by far for daily driving wether it’s driving to town for groceries or driving through a river the truck is equally at home with either!

    Stock axles on a U1300 have a top speed of 54 mph. The fast axles add 19% for a top speed of just over 64 mph. Pretty fast for that monster.

      Yeah I was just going to add that! Remember that 60 MPH in a vehicle with such large tires, especially while sitting right over them, seems much more than fast enough!

    Looks like an older version of the Moggie featured in “Jurassic World”‘…

    Speed? Who needs speed? You’re buying this too see the world, not pass it by.

    Look at the places Hubert Kriegel traveled to on an overloaded Ural Patrol:
