    Default Sparky's deuce

    Going on 2 years as a deuce owner and realized I haven't started a thread yet. Actually purchased from another SS member. From my research and convo with the previous owner I am the 3rd or 4th owner of this machine after DRMO.

    First things first, details....
    1971 Kaiser Jeep M35A2. Basic truck, mutli-fuel engine, manual, no winch, troop seats, soft bed/cab tops, 2 spare Michelin tires/wheels. Runs great. Previous owner(s) added a 1 ton bed crane, spin on filter adapters under the hood (very awesome), 2 inch rear hitch receiver, 11 x 20.00 tires (GY 177s and 188s).

    No big plans other than regular maintenance and some little mods. Bucket seat swap out, cargo lighting (red/white), backup lighting, add in a different horn trumpet, warning/caution stencils, and maybe a cab/bed roof tie in.

    Pics....

    User schwenk industries is who I got it from.
    Looks like he last logged in June 2018.

    My understanding is the truck came from WI. DRMOed there then to private owner (SS member), then to schwenk, then to me.

    It has had a ripped top (tree branch from storm by 1st owner) but the repair job was done extremely well.

    Found my notes today. 99% sure this truck came from Pewaukee, WI. Pretty sure it was once owned by Todd Martin. Not sure what his SS handle is/was.
