    Best zombie apocoplypse vehicle?

    Sorry if I'm chiming in a little late..I have personally been thinking our 2nd gen Explorers are perfect.. They can carry quite a bit especially when you have a good roof rack. They handle them selves quite well off road and in the snow and in my Sport it fits me and 3 Buddies comfortable and a...
