Disasters can happen at any moment and an major EMP event could be catastrophic. The survivors of a major EMP event are going to have to adjust to doing without a lot of technology that we take for granted right now. If the initial chaos that follows the attack continues more than a few weeks things could be forced back in time a lot further than that, with many daily tasks needing the technology of the 19th century.

They typical recommendation is pre-1980 vehicles before much of the engine, transmission and ignition were controlled by computers and circuits. There is no hard and fast rules when it comes to EMP except don’t be within 5000 miles of one.

You should look for the simplest vehicles you can find. The less options the better. Look for a gas vehicle with a points type ignition, basic ignition and as few relays as possible.

Having a working vehicle to hand really increases your odds of surviving the end of the world as we know it, so it’s worth making some effort to find the right one.

Find a vehicle that will get you from point A to point B and make sure you have your food storage and other survival priorities in place.

Here are the top five choices for your bug-out vehicle:

Jeep CJ- The Jeep CJ models are both a series and a range of small, open-bodied off-road vehicles and compact pickup trucks. The engines are electronics-free, so aren’t going to get wrecked by EMP, and small enough to give great fuel economy.

Approx. price: $6000

Toyota Hilux N30- The Toyota Hilux is a series of light commercial vehicles produced and marketed by the Japanese manufacturer Toyota. The majority of these vehicles were sold as pickup truck or cab chassis variants although they could be configured in a variety of body styles. It’s also smaller and more fuel-efficient than the average modern truck, while still giving you a respectable load space and good off road performance.

Approx. price: $3.000

International Harvester Scout- The Scout is a minor classic. The International Harvester Scout is an off-road vehicle produced by International Harvester from 1961 to 1980. A precursor of more sophisticated SUVs to come, it was created as a competitor to the Jeep, and it initially featured a fold-down windshield. The Scout’s big advantage is that it contains no computers and practically nothing electronic, so it’s inherently EMP-resistant.

CUCV- The COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf)) they are basically a military diesel pickup or blazer. Concept, which translated into the CUCV program, was originally intended to augment the purpose-built but expensive Gama Goats and M151 series jeeps approaching the end of their service life in the mid-1970s. And some are topped with shelters or ambulance beds. You have to research each model though. Not all are 4×4’s and so on.

Approx price: $2.000

Land Rover 90/110- The Land Rover has been the workhorse of the British Army for decades, and it’s famous for its rugged construction and simplicity. In 1990 it rebranded as the Defender and updated with a modern, electronically controlled engine, but if you can find a 1980s 110 (long wheelbase) or 90 (short wheelbase) diesel you have a vehicle that stands an excellent chance of coming through an EMP unhurt.

Price: $10.000 – $30.000

Have you ever thought about living without electricity, internet or mobiles? We can guarantee that the majority of our readers can never imagine this kind of scenarios.
However, there are chances that this type of conditions arises in your life due to flooding, tornadoes, draught or even war.
How could you survive in this type of dangerous condition? We believe you should stay prepared by learning the essential skills needed to deal with these disasters, watching this video

If you have an older vehicle then you may want to consider having everything for a complete tune-up as spares. An EMP could destroy the condenser and points in your vehicle and having spares on hand could be a life saver! Just to be safe you may also want to have spare plug wires, rotor and cap on hand also.

while I realize that 1989-2007 Dodge 4×4 are expensive they would be the best since they have mechanical engines and get as high as 32 mpg on the Highway and you can seriously haul a load, the manual trans is by far the better truck, and most of the 4×4 units have posi rear ends, as with any diesel pickup the 4×2 is an albatross, convert it to 4×4 or regret ever owning it..

corrections to My comment where I put 2007 I should have put 1997 and I did mean the cummins engine equiped Dodge Ram

Come on folks, that is no more than fear mongering. Do you have any idea how many of the supposed EMP bombs they’d have to drop on us to facilitate what you are describing. Even our Sun will not hit us with one that strong. AND NO, the Russian do not have a single bomb that could disable our whole nation.

Even if you did have a vehicle like those mentioned, just how far do you think you’d get when 80% of a given populated area would be looking to steal whatever they could get their hands on including your vehicle. Your best bet is to hunker down with arms at the ready, because with all the roads filled with cars that cannot move just where do you think you’ll go?

How are you going to get fuel for you vehicle if the power is out. Pumps won’t work, trucks won’t deliver fuels, etc. think about it.

Simply pull in to your local gas station, cut lock off cap to underground tank. Have a 12v pump with long line to drop in storage tank, plug into your trailer hitch connection on bumper…..mine is ready to go.

OK Bob sounds like you really thought it out (not) all those cars have gas in them that they wont be using ? Duh? how will you get it out?
