    Default CUCVs on base. How many left?

    I know this has been discussed before but it's been a while.

    How many CUCVS have been seen lately waiting to be sold?
    Sometimes you can see a few in the background in GP listing pics.
    I know quite a few are still serving.

    The auction pool is getting smaller each week
    I'm in the market for two more good ones myself.

    Just curious what guys are seeing sitting around when they recover theirs.

    I see a few at Ft. Polk in a lot on the way to DRMO that are painted various colors. I think they are used as the "opposing" force as Ft. Polk does a lot of training for folks going to the sandboxes.

    One can see several in use daily at Ft Indiantown Gap, PA. They are all pickups. I have not seen any M1009s in use for several years now. The last one I saw in use was the one used for daily "trail" inspections in Quantico.

    It's impossible to know exactly how many CUCVs are left for auction I know.

    Just curious what everyone is seeing while their on base. Some are still in service of course, but really interested in those that are ready to be cut loose from Uncle Sam.

    GP auction pics show a few CUCVs sitting in the background waiting for their auction date.

    Are there thousands left to be sold or is it in the hundreds?

    Fewer each week.

    Mine came from DRMO at Ft Lewis, Washington. There were 2 being surplussed. I got the nicer one. I have seen them running around on base as well.

    I was told by one of the shuttle bus drivers on Bangor Trident Base that they have a couple M1009s that are sitting with snow plows attached for use when it snows. Given it hasn't snowed in several years I'm guessing they may be inoperable.

    When I picked up my first CUCV at Fort Hood there were about 10-15 CUCVs waiting to be sold.
    Only saw 1008 & 1009s about half of each.

    But a lot have been sold out of there so I'm sure Pickens are slim there now.

    Can find some with google earth on the bases but it's not updated often enough to really use it that way.


    Would GP have any idea?
    I don't know how much advance notice they get on trucks going to auction.
