    Default New from Texas!

    Trying to learn as much as possible between the key differences of a M35a2, M923 and a Stewart & Stevenson M1078.

    Interested in turning one of these into a tour vehicle and looking to make a decision on the best vehicle to get street legal.

    Excited to be part of the forum!!

    Welcome! Start by telling your insurer the year of manufacture of each of these trucks and see what they tell you.

    What kind license plate are you going to get you have commercial plates most places will you get a CD with an airbrake endorsement. If it farm use, RV or historic vehicle probably not. Find on paper or on line the operator's manual, organizational manual, parts book, and lubrication order for this vehicle. Don't make a move without the pubs. Do you now how a military light switch works ? Most MVs have a data plate in the cab that lists the publication number of the relevant publications.

    Welcome from Kansas City, MO. The M35A2 is much more gooder and much more funner. Ha, ha. Id say research each model of truck and decide what would serve you best.
    It is a poverty when a dictionary must die so a person may spell as they wish.
