    Default MTVR 7 ton. Who bought one?

    93 of these trucks have sold recently and I don't see many threads about them. Who bought them all?

    People who are going to be really mad when they can't get parts for them at Napa!

    I know a few have been exported as I saw the broker listings to go to the port in Charleston.

    Stupid questions, but I'll ask anyway...why is the military selling these?? Do they have a surplus or have plans to go bigger??

    They are just being surplus than rather being rebuilt or even up armored. The 7 and 9 ton MTVR trucks have a extended service life of 2024 thru 2042. They are still being built by oshkosh

    I spoke to a guy who won one at one of the first few auctions. Sold him a couple parts. His euc hadn’t cleared yet though and he was into his 3rd month waiting.

    I didn't get one but I did end up with 6 wheels with CTIS. They'll probably become fire pits as I can't find any use for them.

    There will be a member on here soon who gets one, not me though. I think Simp summed up my reason. M923A0 is about as far forward in the hobby as I want to go. Purely mechanical systems and zero electronics to keep it running. Don't mistake my logic, I love the newer trucks while someone else is footing the bill to maintain them.
