    I notice your friends' dad is a heavy truck mechanic.
    He should know what tools to take and what to inspect on a truck like this, so you do have mechanic support. As others have stated, download the operators manual and read up on it. JATONKA's M35 TM download page The first manual listed on jatonkas' website is from PS magazine and covers a lot of basics. Also, take very seriously advise about the hoses and belts.

    I called my insurance co. They said to just bring by ins. card from my other vehicles with me as they would cover any newly purchased vehicles for 30 days until I can get the title transferred. I do not see anyone in chat. ??

    NAPA usually has everything I need however some of the more one off parts will have to be gathered from surplus outfits.

    You can't walk into most part stores and ask for a M35A2C wheel cylinder.

    Fuel and oil filters, fluids, belts, possible a compatible air filter should be available at NAPA. I wouldn't hold my breath on the air filter...

    This just keeps getting better and better. . . .

    Make sure you tell your insurance company it's a Jeep!

    This is no worse than two idiots driving to Tx to drive some deuces back to Wi. Take some fuel filters, 3511 and 3512 are the napa numbers. The alt and belt numbers escape me right now. I will PM my cell # in case you have trouble on the road.
    Don't worry about the size difference

    OK, I need to get go off here and start locating parts. Thank you all for your info. As far as the sacrastic comments, well, thanks for the laugh. I am glad this could be entertaining. I will check back in few hours to view other comments, so please continue to send advice if you would. Thanks again.
