    Default Why an LMTV

    Why did you purchase and LMTV vs. say a M923a2? Looks? 4 wheels vs. 6-10?...

    Turns out I was the only bidder on my m1081. Thought they looked kool. Partial to the cab over engine style(coe) All the others people were willing to pay more than I wanted to.

    Originally was interested in the M109A3. Now days the modern version M1079 are out of my range Iím willing to pay.

    The lmtv is by far the most comfortable and roomy of all the military trucks I have driven.
