DIESEL OVERLANDER URBAN TRUCK AND SYSTEM DEVELOPED IN ARIZONA FOR SURVIVAL IN UNCERTAIN TIMES
In 1964, Dick and Jean Goodman were living in Chicago. An Air Force veteran, Dick was a transport pilot and later worked for Shell Oil in the Midwest. After the turmoil in Chicago leading up to the 1964 Presidential election, Dick Goodman had an idea for a survival vehicle. He foresaw a future of unrest and decided to build a vehicle that would be for G.O.O.D (get out of Dodge). In 2020, the vehicle became a reality. After decades of thought, engineering and prototypes, Dick Goodman has completely built a survival vehicle called the Diesel Overlander. The 4WD truck and trailer are engineered for maximum reliability and living area for a family to hunker down in a safe rural place.
The truck is a Dodge 2500 Cummins remanufactured 12-valve, mechanical lifters, diesel engine, manual transmission, and upgraded suspension. The engine does not depend on a computer, has a manual fuel capacity is 100-gallons plus an 80-gallon reserve tank. The electrical system is completely replaced, designed like an airplane following all FAA approved methods with 2 stand-alone, specially-designed alternators to operate the vehicle or to be used directly as a welder. The vehicle has 3 batteries, a total instrument panel redesign, a generator, stealth tactical lighting with a passive thermal imaging system that can be safely driven pitch black at low speed away from a threat. The Diesel Overlander trailer has tools, workbench, food storage for one year, 200-gallon water tank, ham radio, a medical mini-clinic, bathroom and sleeping area. The package includes an escape plan, a secluded area away from urban areas, and ability to ride out any unrest in a well-stocked, well-planned hideaway.
