In the event of a zombie apocalypse, you may want transportation so that you can still get around easily and have protection while you are out scavenging for food. Here are some of the top modifications that you can make to your vehicle for the zombie apocalypse.
Picking the right sized vehicle
When it comes to picking the right car, one of the last things that you will want is a small, compact car to get you from Point A to Point B. For the zombie apocalypse, you are going to want a bigger car with lots of weight in the event that you have to mow down some zombies. Stronger, reinforced vehicles will be harder to break into as well so you will definitely want to pick an SUV or large-scale truck, potentially with four-wheel drive as the roads will very quickly become cracked in disrepair as society crumbles.
Adding a bit of extra weight to your vehicle is never a bad idea. Getting some steel plating or putting a ramp or cow catcher on the front can work to make sure that you don’t end up getting stopped by mowing down a few zombies. Armor will also prevent zombies from breaking into your windows or any weak points on your vehicle.
You will definitely want to upgrade your lights so that you can see much further in the dark. Seeing a pack of zombies far away in the dark could be a lifesaver.
You may want to use tires with spikes or chains so that you can continue driving even in some of the worst conditions.
Spikes and weaponry
Putting some spikes along the outside of your vehicle can help to slow down zombies while you are stopped.
Something that makes a lot of noise in the event that your vehicle is being started, or a small booby-trap inside your vehicle can prevent it falling into the wrong hands. If you build a great vehicle that keeps zombies out, there is nothing to stop another survivor from taking it from you, leaving you unprotected.
Putting heavy glass or fortifying the windows in your vehicle is very important for survival. Windows are some of the weakest points on your vehicle and are an easy target for zombies.
A flamethrower can be a great way to get rid of a large crowd of zombies and to keep them off your vehicle. A vehicle-mounted flamethrower is pretty dangerous but it could save your life if you ever get mobbed by a horde of zombies.
These are just a few great ways that you can outfit your vehicle for the zombie apocalypse. If you’ve got other ideas on how to equip your vehicle for zombie survival, let us know in the comments below.
