They do, a friend of mine owned a pretty nice one, purchased from Ca. Dept. of Forestry if memory serves me correct, was one with a sleeper and utlility box attached (OEM) and even had a workable turret hatch over the passenger seat. That thing was a BEAST, very impressive piece of machinery.

Edit:
My buddies actually looked exactly like this, minus the diamondplating and the spotlight, same color and all.

I would buy one.

Now all we need to do is scream and yell that we want this, wait 3 years amid metric tons of hype and speculation, watch MagPul finish it, begin to bring to production, then sell off the whole deal to Chrysler, and promptly pay 4x the original price 3 years before......

Precisely. They are unbelivably capable off-road and in all sorts of terrain, but they are NOT fast - and driving them on a highway is not really very fun.

When I was in the Danish army, I saw Land Rovers and Mercedes G's roll (although that was partly because of the TOW launcher making it top-heavy), and I saw larger Magirus trucks roll, but I don't think I ever saw an Unimog roll. I'm not trying to say it can't be done - I'm sure it happened, obviously. I'm just saying it wasn't a common problem.

They really are quite amazing off road.

No idea. But it looks real expensive. No cut corners anywhere. The front winch bumper is made of something like 60 pieces (can't remember exactly) welded together.

Yeah, Mercedes sure failed when they built probably the best off-road medium utility truck in the world in the early 50s, and have steadily improved it since.

Here's mine. 8 gears forward and reverse. It's geared very low, I can barely get it up to 50MPH downhill.

It definitely LOOKS top-heavy, but the design of the suspension and four-wheel drive and all that complicated power transfer and gearing stuff , as well as the wheel size, just makes it unbelievably effective off-road.

Do a search for "truck trials" on youtube. They do some amazing things with Unimogs. I saw video on one going down such a steep grade that it flipped over forward.
