Detail by owner
I am selling my SBU Unimog. It is a 1988 Mercedes Benz Unimog U1250 that I imported from Germany last year from one of the top Unimog shops in Germany, Merex. It is in great mechanical shape with no problems and everything working as it should. These trucks are meant to last while being used hard. For those that don't know, it has a Mercedes 6.0L turbo diesel engine that is very efficient with lots of torque. It was factory rated at 125hp, but this one has been turned up to 150hp. Doesnt sound like much with the diesels nowadays, but it is plenty for its use.
It has many very usable options that are hard to find, making it great for playing or for use on a farm or ranch. Being that farm work is a big part of what these do overseas, they accept most all farm implements.
I am open to potential trade offers.

I am sure I am missing several things that the average person wouldn't know about Unimogs that I would have forgotten to ad. Please feel free to ask any questions.
Here is a good website to learn some things about Unimogs. This would be considered a 435 series.
This was used as a fun vehicle and it is the most fun I have ever had driving a vehicle. Great for parades or just driving around, gets looks everywhere you go. For its weight, it gets surprisingly good gas mileage, staying around 12-14 mpg from what I have measured. I have taken it on a 7 hour journey with no problems at all. It does not ride rough like you would think, even though it is a big truck it is sprung very soft to be good offroad, so it doesnt jar you to death. Being an 88, the body is not perfect as it has never been restored. There is rust in the bed and a few small places on the body, but it is in pretty good shape for its age.
It has a clean and clear Texas title in my name. Titled as a classic vehicle so you dont have to pay for inspections and cheap registration. Ive never had a problem whenever I drive it.
