    Default Just joined the Deuce club!

    I have joined the Deuce club just won a M35a2c!

    More than I wanted to spend at $4100 but its much closer to me in Pittsburgh than any other deuce I've found.
    Now the hard part to get it back to my storage lot till I can get time to get it back in 24087 OD instead of this silly fire engine red!

    Now its kind of sight unseen but I talked with the mechanic on site and he said it was good, other than a fuel issue from the description I'm guessing lift pump

    If it isn't a simple fix is there anybody around the Pittsburgh area haul deuces?

    Now to just sell my VW rabbit pickup to make more room, or I could store it in the bed...

    Its great photo.....

    Congrats on your new truck. Looks to be well maintained. Many deuces got a second life w/ fire departments. The red paint jobs add a little character to them. I've seen many fire dept. paint schemes that I would keep. Great for parade duty.
    Have fun, be safe.
    I'm not saying let's eliminate all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

    Awesome! Looks like they probably took good care of her.
    Someone should chime in soon about hauling in your area...

    I dont know about the red paint job, I've had fire trucks before, looking for something in OD
    From talking with the mechanic it was well taken care of he thought they were going to fix the fuel pump and send her to a new fire department.

    I doubt parades, but a ton of work I have 55 acres that I need to haul my skid steer back and forth from my house to maintain, cut in a berm for a backstop for my pistol range, and to haul 175ish tons of gravel to rebuild the road.
    A bunch of guys on SxS and ATV's tore the road to shreads this fall so got to rebuild the road and haul out hundreds of tires my grandfather left there. Every time I think I'm done with a job it just piles on more!
    Good thing I got a reliable, fast, easy to work on, and fuel efficient M35a2.....

    I like it too and you got a good deal. It's got some goodies in very good condition like the fold down bed sides and the hard top. Do a bit of research on what to put over that gloss paint in 383 green flat and it will look just right. Try a spot with the Behr house paint sample size to the FS colors for under $10....it might work fine for brushing and rolling on by farm helper 2. Nice truck.

    How about using the tires in your construction, filling them with dirt and stacking them as retaining walls? Make cool shapes that would be great for a range.

    Hauling 175 tons without a hoist may be an issue.
