    My M35A2 has come a long way from a beaten down brushfire truck to her now standing glory. She took me a year to get from start to finish, I had a company start the work but a lot was still to be done. With help from other members and friends she now stands fully restored and even upgraded a bit.

    My truck was made in 1971 by the General Products Division of Jeep. She is of a uncommon make, most where made by Kaiser Jeep or AM General. She isn't perfect but she is as close to it as my budget allows.

    A few pictures of General Non-Sense over the past few years. He's a hard worker and plays well with friends like me. My worst moment with him is when I climbed in the cab on crutches enroute to the 2017 GA Rally. My best moment was when I pulled in the driveway 4 days later with no issues but still on crutches. He's participated in quite a few local parades alongside a thoroughbred who hangs out in this yard. No less the May 2015 Winner of this contest, Sarge still rubs it in to this day. I'm asking for your vote to restore order to my humble few acres. Sarge claims quality over quantity and you know 5 tons do both better!

In 2013, I modified and installed the M52 air cleaner with the idea of installing an LDS engine to pull a S-280 shelter. In 2016 I installed the 10'000lb. Garwood winch and PTO after I retired and moved to rural NW Nevada where I can use it. Found a new complete GI hot water heater in the box and plan on installing the heater this spring.

    Tracer’s deuce has to be one of the cleanest, nicest ones around. A beautiful truck. The pics don’t do it justice. You need to vote for this truck.

    This is our rought terrain forklift which is street legal with up to about 30 miles/hour.
    This MV is build 1987 and named FUG 2.5 Y 4-1.


    FUGtoday.jpg FUGcampain 052.jpg SEE Vorbereitung Schubrohrmanschetten 006.jpg

    The engine is a 6 Cyl. aircooled Deutz Diesel.

    FUGcampain 041.jpg It very interesting to drive on the street with the rear axel steering.

    I have such an affliction with having to vote for just one when every candidate has the Attitude of being MV of the Month. And that the Equipment is Never static but being used at what they were designed for.

    DSCF2117.jpgDSCF2118.jpgDSCF2119.jpg I installed a drivers spring seat in place of the bench seat so my Wife/Navigator has a more comfortable ride. I installed the APC interior light as a map light. I purchased this light several years ago from CARNAC when he was out West at the April Tower Park event. This light came with a dimmer control and works great. To mount, use four 7/8 hose clamps, it's 24V so hook up the power and you have an excellent hands off map light.
