    Default finally got on, it is a M939A2 S.W. Louisiana

    Hello my name is Joe and when I was discharged from the Army at Fort Bennings, Georgia 1972, seeing jeeps and other items still in the crates always wanted a unit, I looked long and hard at things that were tore up been cut and added to, by chance I see this 5 ton behind a restaurant in a shop had lunch and the owner was there asked him to do a walk around and if I could take some pictures, then asked if it was for sale, he said, my friends want to give me less than I paid, but I will consider selling to you to get them off my back, he said 15,000 and I had looked at some trash they wanted 15,000 told him to hold for two days, sent the pictures to my wife and she called me and said we are getting it, drove back and said we can give a deposit, he said its yours, had to clean some shop space and get some stone poured, he brought it the next week, one or the finest man that I have done business with and he delivered it, I am not going to drive it much until I get an operator's manual somewhere then get a shop manual, my wife loves, just got a little in the steering, Long shot drivers side.jpgLong Shot Passenger Side.jpgunder fender.jpgJudy Tyler Joe Army Truck 2019.JPGIMG_3962.jpgFront shot.jpg

    They told me to get a hybrid, so I parked my truck on six priuses, does that count.

    Welcome from Kentucky. Congrats on your new truck. Looks to be well taken care and it has a nice new home.
    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.
