IMO it would be much easier to just pick up an older rig that doesn't have electronics. Why spend the cash to destroy your nice rig. Any mods you do will drop the value to 99% of the buying public. Plus it will be fun to give the old beater the Mad Max treatment to suit your needs.
Now there is some smart advice right there and the oath of least resistance! Most American Made vehicles manufactured before 1982 have minimal electronic parts on them and could fairly easily survive EMP. I wont get into the fact that the average Joe can usually make just about any repair to them without a degree in vehicle engineering as well. Pre-1982 vehicles are very simple straight forward combustion engines with mechanical components for the most part and require just basic knowledge and tools.

You don't say where you are, but in the short term, you probably won't pass emissions inspection, and you wouldn't be able to get tags renewed in most places.
Buy something older. Lots of old Toyotas, as well as others floating around that you can probably pick up cheap.
More great advice and a consideration many dont think about...passing emmisions inspection which is required in many locations throughout the country these days and it seems to be getting to be that way in more and more places. What you can get away with today...might not be allowed a few years from now and then your stuck with a vehicle that may not be grandfathered in future regs. This is rarely an issue on a older vehicle when new laws come into effect in order to allow "classic cars and collectors" to still register and drive their older vehicles.
