Default Mercedes Truck Conversion in Mongolia!

Car and Driver has a cool write up about this Mercedes Truck Conversion

Built on a Mercedes-Benz Zetros 6◊6 chassis, it comes with a 7.2-liter diesel inline-six. 3 locking diffs and a totally tricked out interior may even make you forget funky Mongolian yak-butter tea.

Those things are cool, thanks Janet. Very nice looking builds. No pass thru from cab to living quarters makes it a no go for me tho. I get a kick out of that snorkel too. If the water makes it halfway up the snorkel your house is flooded.

Looks like they made nice use of all the space they had, just looking at the pics. Would make a great expedition truck.

That thing looks sick! It probably does well getting around in the snow too!
