    Well you could go with the tube bumpers just in case you need to run some one over or push stuff out of the way.

    Dont depend on the newer trucks or cars to many electronics on board.Find yorself something old and with a carb and points ignition. Old suburban,blazer,bronco,land cruiser,jeep,anything 4 wd. Hell even a big ass old stationwagon would work.

    Best truck now but after shtf I would prefer a landy diesel engine they will run on almost any liquid fuel including parrafin and kerosine an all that, not the best mpg but better than you'd get from a 6.2 .... While fuels everywhere you win hands down and you deffo have more fun but for a bug out vehicle I'd still choose a good old landy, they go forever over anything through anything you can kit them out so hard , like I said you win but my advice would be to stock up on fuel, the area I live in is rural and there's not many gas mains so right behind every house is a HUGE tank of kerosine for heating, we have tankers fill our tanks instead of mains supply gas so fuel won't be an issue round here lol
