    Default Hello from Washington

    I have been using the site for about a year now and felt it was time to introduce my self.

    Hi my name is Zack

    I am an addict, I drag home large metal objects with "no practical use".


    I stumbled across this site about a year ago and found out that i can own a deuce and a half. I have wanted one since I was a kid (what kid didn't?) so I decided to buy a M35A2. I then signed up for GL and bought a M105 from ft. lewis to get my first EUC to clear, It took 5 months before I could make the recovery. I have not found anything I will bid on yet so i'm going to start looking on craigslist, I have looked at a couple of dealer web sites but the prices seem to be about 2x privet party and 4x GL so i'm not sure on that.

    I'm hoping to get one in the next couple of months. If I do I will be sure to post lots of pics.

    (Edit: I got a deuce, this is the link http://www.steelsoldiers.com/deuce/7...tml#post867193 )

    Welcome aboard. Personally. If ya can find a good running truck on craigslist. Probably your best bet. Deuces tend to bring top dollar in the PNW @ GL as they dont come up often. I nabbed mine off craigslist a few years back. And other then fuel and the occasional oil change, Ive yet to have to do anything to her.

    Howdy from the other side, dry side, of the state.

    Don't be in a rush, you either pay it now or later.
    There are real deals out there if you can bring a derelict truck home and get her into shape.
    But that again is pay now or pay later.


    Also be warned there is a strange guy up in Stelacom that will invite you to a rally if he hears you are interested in MVs. If you ask him he will probably forward you every Craigs ad he sees related to MVs..........

    Welcome aboard.

    Welcome to the addiction. There is no cure, except, in some cases, marriage.

    Best of luck in your search for a tow rig, for the m105.

    And we make fun of Scott when ever its possible.

    1. Because its so easy
    2. Because its so much fun.
    3. He actually enjoys it.
    4. Yes, he is pretty bad, um, well, you know...

    Why am I so worried, all the sudden?

    Trailer is sitting in Lakewood getting a few things done to it. I thought the wiring was fixed, but the driving lights didn't work, so that is being fixed as well.

    I did get the bows and cover. Picked up the odd parts to complete that set. When I go pick the trailer, I'll put it all together and see how it looks.

    And post a picture too.

    Hopefully, next weekend.
