    Well, hard choices, but I picked Rmtaunton this month, I'm a sucker for a crane truck!

    I have that exact model crane from an MTV to put on my M931a1...hopefully sooner than later.

    I hope that it is not to much of a challenge to find parts for your equipment?
    Depends. In the Netherlands are a few scrapyards with enough stuff to repair an army, not kidding. However, that's a 650 mile drive and unfortunately, I am not that often in the Netherlands anymore. So once I know what I need, I try to combine it with a visit to my family. Unfortunately, they are not allowed to send military stuff by post anymore, so that's a problem.

    I am now going through my old threads to find a nice thread on the repairs; amazing what you find back when reading those.

    For the moment, some stuff about the truck and its history can also be found on our Czech Emigration Museum website

    We service our truck and try to get all the on board equipment together in the near future, although many things comes with the truck.

    The truck is equipped with winch.
    Winch is side mounted and has front and rear roller fairlead.

    Well do I get "props" for it actually being in a movie as a prop!! sorry for the cra*%y pic but had to snap a pic from off youtube with my phone....didn't know how to capture a still frame....anyway if you look to the far right you will hopefully recognize MY truck, in the background....got paid and everything.

    Got to meet John Cusack, Wesley Snipes, and the every so racist Samuel Jackson.

    Oh the movie really sucked but hey, my truck was in it!! AND I got paid, so I call it a win.

    I am down to four but can't pull the trigger yet.

    I have narrowed my choice to across the Atlantic Ocean.

    Wait till the last few days:
    - you will not get voter's regret
    - we have to do some hard canvassing to get you on our side, which will make PB happy as well.

    Win-Win, but don't forget to put an alarm to remind you to vote in time.

    More canvassing tonight (our time), have to go play blacksmith for children and other tourists now.

    We got some troop seats and an aluminium stairway with fold up handrail.

    Because there is no rear window to the driver, troops in the back have to use the signal switch
    to communicate in emergency to the driver. (Buzzer)
