    Deuces in Avengers!!!

    I saw some Deuces in the new "Avengers" movie that just came out. The movie was badass by the waaaay! From what I remember I saw them in the building implosion scene (all I am going to say to avoid spoler). It had a lightrack across the top of the cab. Looked pretty cool. I might look into...

    Pics of a M1009 in the bed of a deuce???

    I saw an old 2004 thread about a truck but no pics. The 1009 seems like it would be a decent fit at 80"~ track and the bed being 96" wide. The length is 184 and the length of the bed is 144, 1009 wheelbase is 106~ so maybe a no go. Just wondered if anyone had any pics? Would need some serious...
