    In no particular order
    1. Custom blue rattle can paint job
    2. Seats out of a jeep cherokee
    3. Dynomax muffler
    4. Jatonka spin-on oil, primary and secondary fuel filter kit
    5. All fiberglass troop seats and headache rack
    6. Pyrometer
    7. Turned up fuel, (need to go more)

    That's what I've done, and to finish out my top 10

    8. M35tom .69 od kit
    9. 11r20 xl dueled in rear with 14.5r20 on front
    10. Air lockers in all 3 axles.
    Some people are like slinkys, not much good for anything, yet would still bring a smile to your face if you pushed them down a flight of stairs.

    I work on Warner Robins AFB, so if anyone needs previews or items picked up, PM me.

    I would like a pyrometer, a set of front lock outs, a pair of locking differentials, PTO winch for front, electric winch under the bed, a nice set of 1100 radials, removable receiver hitch, under bed storage box for tools, remote master cylinder reservoir, and a larger on board air tank for running air tools....want to set it up so I can valve it off when not needed.
    The five tons have dried up and are about gone, we have some deuce remains around, the military salvage yard is looking pretty empty these days!

    My list of what I did on mine.

    1. Installed Peterbilt air horn
    2. Installed Coke-style bottle opener on front side of deuce bed next to the door.
    3. Cup holder.
    4. Mini-humidor in the glove box.
    5. Beer cooler on the front where the winch should be.
    6. 12-volt stereo hookup
    7. Pair of panties from a stripper I met in Baltimore hanging from the electric wiper switch.

    Still need to do:

    8. Install kegerator in bed.
    9. Install beer taps in the side of the bed, just opposite the kegerator.
    10. Install 2-person hammock in the bed for camping/relaxing.

    Hey, you gotta ENJOY your ride once you get there too!

    This is my top 10:
    1. Add muffler (or re-plumb exhaust out the back)
    2. Upgrade tires to super singles or 11r20's if you like duels (modern radials)
    3. Add a reese style hitch to the back (and maybe to the front)
    4. Primary fuel filter upgraded to a spin on with wix base and filter

    That is what I've done so far...
    Here are other options...
    5. Bob the truck
    6. Lock-out hubs (to free up the front differential and one of the rear axles for road driving)
    7. power steering
    8. Locking differentials, so it will be a true 6x6
    9. seats, either springer or something else
    10. engine to a 6bt or something or just upgrade to anti-drain back, spin on fuel filters for the multi-fuel.
    1952 Studabaker m35a2- 46" super singles
    1970 Jeep m818 53" super singles- SOLD
    1998 Diesel Chevy Suburban- 6.5TD HMMWV block and heads
    m116a2 and MEP002 generator
    m1008 CUCV w/Western Plow
    Several other trailers & deuces bought and sold
