I had a Yugo, another vehicle that wasn't anywhere near as bad as some claimed.
Got it right after they went under, only 6 months old with 4800 miles on it, payed $300. Used to do all kinds of off roading with it in the jersey pine barrens, and eventually drove it cross country with everything I owned stuffed in it.

Crude, slow, needed a bit of tinkering, but it got the job done.

This only applies to the latest generation of IMWA Urals. All CSMI Urals (basically pre-2002) and Dneprs are full-time 2WD and some of the Dneprs have locking diffs on top of that!!!

My first offroad experience was steep hills and extremely loose sand. A few of my friends on lightweight dual sports (DR-Z, and a Yammy of some sort) couldn't make the hills without bogging down. I threw it in 2wd to make the steep grades, and it only took me a couple tries to figure out exactly what you said. I rarely turned the bars, but really just balanced my throttle and threw my weight around to steer it in the loose sand. Easy Peasy.

I've loved tossing the Ural around ever since, but Misses Donkeys gets upset when I steal her Ural and bring it home filthy.

That is why you now need a Gobi in your stable

Howdy Wamsutta,

This thread is full people pissing and moaning about how much a Ural costs as it is, adding a differential that is strong enough to last and is LOCKABLE so that it is usable when the going gets rough would add quite a bit to the price.

In a prefect world, I would like to have a Ural equipped with a 1,000cc four valve per cylinder overhead cam fuel injected turbo-charged diesel engine, 6 speed transmission, 2 hi-low speed transfer case, locking differential, disk brakes all around, a spare tire that would fit in all positions, 6 inch wide FLAT face tires, I could go on but I think I have made my point. A Ural is a Ural, is a Ural. You can accept it for what it is, leave it alone or modify it to the extent of your skills or finances.

When other people go off on political rants, your thread gets booted to the basement.

When your thread gets booted to the basement, you become sad.

Don't buy a Ural and get yelled at by old guys in Corvettes.....

more "helpful" suggestions to Ural NA



Urals should come equipped with tires made out of Flubber, so they can fly (not just the chair)!

And they should be free.

Then more people can own them and complain about how bad they are.

That will keep this thread alive for years!

That sounds awesome. Has anyone made such a conversion yet? Would love to see more details!

This is one of my favorite Ruski rigs, I would only add the locking feature to the differential and MAYBE an LL front end...

The closest anyone came to that was the Germans in the 1940's with the no expenses spared off-road Zundapp KS-750 and BMW R-75 rigs.
