The reason I'm selling the 86 hatch is because this is taking up room in my driveway.

2.5 liter inline 4 on its side, Gas, :-\ not diesel, but I'm thinking that a OM617 Mercedes Benz could fix that problem.

Portal axles and lockers front and rear, with a crawl ratio of something around 60:1, which makes it feel like i'm cheating.

I pulled off the roof rack, its great for the movies, but adds about 200 pounds to the worst point on a vehicle that is already tippy.

I'll try to upload some action shots in the next few days.

Zap, Ken, any time you want to come over to the West Side I'm up for getting muddy.

Friggin' cool Noah. What a neat ride.


Next time I go to the cabin, I'll let you know. Looking forward to seeing it in person.

Hehe, AWESOME!!


I absolutely love those Pinzgauers!! An OM617 would be sweet, but a VW TDi would be amazing!

never seen one until you posted thread.


looks top heavy. I like women that way but not sure i would want to drive that in the 50mph sustained wind storm we just had.

no aerodynamics on the front, of your vehicle

It certainly is not made for speed, but will top out about 20 faster than a mog. It's funny you mention it being top heavy and not aerodynamic, I didn't notice :rolleyes:

Still kinda liking it. Bet that would make a great camping vehicle, room for a loft bed in the back etc.

For those of us who haven't had the joy of riding in a Unimog, please, tell us, how fast does it go?

I'm gonna ballpark it and say your Pinzgauer tops out at about 55mph?

Headed out to the cabin this weekend for the day on Saturday. Let's get some pics of it in action, see how stuck we can get it in the mudhole. :brow:

OMG, a military vehicle that's not designed for speed that's not aerodynamic. I've seen tippier looking Subarus not go over.
I youtubed some of those things in action. Pretty cool rig, it'll be fun in the snow too.

Drill weekend :(

With bigger than stock tires it can top out at 65~70 but crawling up a mountain pass will have you going 45 on a good day.

Oh, a Pinzgauer! Very nice car! It was developed and produced in my hometown Graz, so I am always happy to see a Pinzgauer in loving hands! :clap:

The next weekend should work,



I'm partial to the OM 617 as it is the same displacement, and entirely mechanical, and purported to be the most reliable engine every made. A lot of people have tried to diesel the old pinz rigs, so if I can make it work I'll be very happy as most have been disappoined by smaller displacement diesels or bad gearing in the swapped transmissions, so I'm ost likely going tmo have to fab up an adapter plate and flywheel.

I thing a fair trade for letting you sleep on my futon once a week would be to let me use the 12k pound winch to pull this up a tree! :brow:

I would love to go get this dirty!

So can you think of anybody to invite along for the 15th? A couple of Soobies would be fun to have along. The trail out there is designed with Soobs in mind. Well much of it anyways, it's changed a little bit since you've last seen it. We added a pretty fomidable mud hole and one trail goes up the hill to the tree fort now too.

It will be at the subaru show next year if you can wait a year to see it, I'll also most likely be at the christmas tree run.

There is a pinz forum like ours, www.real4x4forums.com

There will be subaru logos on it soon, the truck, not the forum

Ok Noah. No backing out. I have a bunch of guys coming out with me to see it in person. :) Three toys, two or three jeeps.

Feel free to bring pals, most of us will spend the night. A couple nice tent spots since you last showed up. Wait. You get to sleep in your ride. :clap:
