    M59 speed issue.

    any chance your m59 has the original data plate on the dash specific to the m59 ? if so any chance of a few pictures of it ? looking at a dump with no plate no cab protector tool box or mud flaps

    Got a new (M275 Tractor) project a few weeks ago

    Been searching for pieces to an m59 dump truck and found a toolbox for behind your cab and pretty sure the spare carrier too. TNJ murray has a M342 that's been pretty stripped.

    m59 versus 342a2

    I know the beds are physically longer on the 342 but are the cab protectors the same ? I may have found an m59 and she is missing her cab protector, tool box and data plate.. I know the m215 and m59 were the same just wasn't sure of the 342.. Thanks guys my little m37 dump needs a big brother

    XM 705 anybody ??

    Hands down that xm705 was more reliable and a better power plant than the infamous tornado six jeep had. only reason they went with the m715 was because they could buy 5 for the cost of 4 chevys. Thumbs upon the Chevy XM705 I missed one 5 years ago and wished I had gotten it. Nice truck Steve !
