Enter the SEMA 2012-displayed Survivor Truck, the brainchild of security consultant Jim DeLozier. While the converted Chevrolet C70 may look like just a tree-service truck on steroids, the build sheet tells a different story. DeLozier put some serious thought into this, and his truck is aimed at protecting occupants from real-world emergencies, not just fictional ones.

As PickupTrucks.com explains, the design features a Faraday cage (to shield electronics from EMP), filters for nuclear, biological and chemical threats, a water desalinization system, water purification and multiple ways to generate electricity, including solar panels.

Its engine is designed to run on a variety of fuels, as is its primary generator. There?s ample storage, and by DeLozier?s calculations a family in a fully stocked Survivor Truck could live off the grid for up to two years. If dad has special forces training, that window could probably be pushed out even further.

To that end, the truck and its accessories are bulletproof, and it comes stocked with gas masks, chemical suits, night vision equipment and camouflage netting that provides 360-degrees of virtual invisibility around the truck. If you believe the best defense is a good offense, the roof is meant to serve as a sniper platform, though you need to provide your own Barrett .50 caliber.

Let us remind you that guaranteed survival comes at a high price, meant to discourage those looking for a mere weekend adventure vehicle. Supply your own platform and go light on the options, and a Survivor Truck will start at around $100,000. If you want the full-meal-deal, expect to pay as much as $600,000.

How is a Chevy truck suppose to survive a Zombie apocalypse when you can't even put the gas pedal to the floor without blowing the motor?

Well aimed return fire of a .50 sabotted penetrator to that exposed drive shaft and it's probably done for good.

If it weren't for the 8mpg, that thing would be a pretty sweet daily driver.

If you had read Brook's Zombie Survival Guide, you would know that easy targets like these are good only to slow down your inevitable demise...
