Welcome to the club and U1000 ownership from a fellow 80's U1000 owner.


That has to be one of the prettiest Unimogs that i have ever seen. It looks fabulous

Buy the genuine workshop manuals from Mercedes. Not cheap but worth the money in the end. Pulling them apart and working on them gets easier ( i should know as i have had to do so much for mine). However the other week i did a 300 odd mile round trip without any failures  :)

Dan the Man,

Where did you get your horns from please? They look far more substantial than most i have seen for sale.

I would also relocate your PCL coupling up much higher as they do not like dirt and jam up relatively easily.


The off road competition side of motorsport in the UK for smaller vehicles is quite healthy (not as good as it was in the 90's but then nothing is. I am involved in the BXCC (British Cross Country Championships) which is similar vehicles to one of the categories in the Breslau (but i cannot remember the class), which is the out and out racing class without winches,. There is then the challenge scene but this is not for trucks. What we are missing is the truck category. The UK issue with this is the land that we have available. We simply do not have the space or the tracks. Regrettably.

I erm cheated and bought the repair panels from AC Price. Typical Merc. They all fitted like a glove. The guy doing my welding had never had panels for any vehicle that did not require 'adjustment' until he did the Mog cab  ;D

That cab is considerably better than mine. I must admit with the state of mine i have purchased all of the panels new from Mercedes. Last winter it was the passengers side floor, sills, inner wheel arch and both front wings. The plan for this winter is all the same panels for the drivers side and the upper and lower rear panels of the cab. Good luck and happy welding!

It is always interesting to see what others have done to their mogs as it often leads to sparking enthusiasm or ideas with your own vehicle.  ;D

Dan the Man,

Do you really mean pre '83 or post '83.

I would like to know either way and hope that someone can shed some light.......

AS well as AV have you spoke to A C Price Engineering about a vehicle (always worth a call IMHO)
