    Default Jack's Government Surplus

    Hey all,

    I just got back from another trip to Jack's today. Every time i go, it is a great experience. He has an AWESOME yard, and if he doesn't have it, the military never made it. He is down in Tucson, AZ right next to Davis Monthan AFB. He doesn't have a website, but you can find his phone number with a simple google search. His prices are awesome, and he loves when people come by to just talk military vehicles with him. If you're ever in the area, it is certainly worth the trip. I would recommend Jack to anyone.

    I was there a couple of days ago as I was passing through Tucson. Caught his interest by pulling up in the M915.
    He is a super nice guy, and loves to talk, and since I also am blabby, we got along fine. Going to have to go back for a more serious visit, he has a lot of restorable vehicles in there.

    By the way, I do not recommend making a 2000 mile trip across the American Southwest in an un-airconditioned M915 in the summertime. That was a HOT trip!

    Cheers
    Rory

    Jack does sell complete trucks and will modify to suit your needs, not sure about a bob job , but will change out parts, beds, tires etc.

    Jack will eventually sell anything to you, but you need to get to know him first. At first, he is a little reluctant to sell things, but the more you stop by and the more you talk military vehicles with him, you will soon find that his entire inventory is open to you.

    Also, he really likes trades. So if you start on a bobbing project, alot of the parts you take off he will accept in trade for parts you need.


    be prepared whenever you go down there, and plan on spending the entire day there. He has more military items then you could ever imagine.

    and one final word, if you plan on spending a lot of time there, he seems to prefer if you give him a courtesy call so he can plan on having you come by.


    good luck, and enjoy your visit! Jack Martin really is a great guy.

    He has multiple yards too. Those pictures are only for his main yard. If you zoom out in google earth and look around, you will find multiple yards with military vehicles around that are all his.
