Schwarzenegger was in California picking up his new ride, a five-ton Mercedes-Benz Unimog pickup customized to a value estimated at $250,000. The earth underneath its tires will be safe, all right.

Schwarzenegger, the 65-year-old actor and bit player in the recent "The Expendables 2," has long been known as a fan of military-grade trucks, and was a chief reason AM General and General Motors eventually built civilian versions of the Hummer military vehicle. During his time as governor, Schwarzenegger changed his stripes, touting fuel-efficient models and even converting one of his trucks to run on hydrogen.

Thursday's pickup of his diesel Unimog followed a test drive in Germany of the Unimog with its customizer. These trucks aren't sold by Mercedes in the United States, but see duty around the rest of the world as construction, forestry and military haulers, and are renown for their off-road prowess.

If it was any higher off the ground he'd literally be able to drive over other vehicles without even touching them.

Practical no, useful yes. With no armor...it has alot of space for food or kids. LOL. as practical as a family of 4 using a hummer or Tahoe or any of the other large SUVs. At least with the MRAP you dont have to worry about getting dents from doors of other cars. Your tires are higher than cars. :)
