Home / News / Prepare for the Apocalypse: Get Yourself the Survivor Truck


Jim DeLozier has created the Daddy Mack of survivor trucks. The peddler of survival tools and supplies in Costa Mesa, California built the truck to be what he says is the ultimate rolling outpost. This writer thinks he has succeeded.

His heavily-modified, sand-colored Chevy C70 truck features bulletproof shielding, night vision capabilities, a solar generator, an air filtration system to protect its occupants from airborne chemical agents, a water purification system, a protected sniper’s cage, an inflatable raft, a crossbow and arrows, and an entire array of communications gear. When properly packed and outfitted, the survivor truck can keep a group of people comfortable for months at a time while their neighbors are either eaten by zombies or rounded up and shot by the People’s Republic of China’s military.

Though DeLozier has yet to price his ride, his initial goal was to create a survivalist vehicle that would run somewhere between $100,000 and $600,000. He says that he has received tons of interest about the vehicle to include feelers from military and law enforcement agencies.
