I live in Wasilla I daily drive my M923A2 when I’m not at work. I just picked up an LMTV I plan to try and split my time between the two for my daily driving. I’m always interested in talking and looking at Military vehicals, feel free to P.M. me and we can get together sometime.

Hey Branr1, I'm up in Fairbanks. Feel free to PM me and we can get together sometime, I occasionally find myself flying through Anchorage.

Hey all. I picked up my first FMTV in October. I’ve been driving it pretty regularly since. I live in Anchorage. I have a soft spot for military vehicles, turbo Diesel engines, big tires, etc. Would gladly meet up for knowledge/story sharing or going for a drive!

Been meaning to ask, speaking of Alaska:

Who had the M925 parked at MSI Autoparts in Fairbanks all last winter? I actually stopped and talked to the manager of the location thinking it was being junked and cut up, only to learn it had a loving owner. Would love to meet you if you're on here, another enthusiast in the area!

I bought a 1998 M1078. I've got it all legal and I've been driving it around the valley, I've made two trips to Anchorage with it so far. Let me know if you'd ever like to meet up and talk trucks, I'm always looking for an excuse to drive it.

I don't have my M925a2 anymore, but I do have a M923a2, and I've been living in the banks area since 2012. Bought the latest truck in 2013... I'd love to get together and talk trucks and MV's in general, plus the maintenance and whatnot of them. I just bought a place in December so now I can park my truck at my own place which is nice. I've not really taken it off road as I didn't know anyone that had another one that could pull me out if I did get stuck. I do miss Arizona MV lic laws, it is so much cheaper there to license them. I saw your phone number in a previous post 71deuceak, so I'll try that way to contact you first. I've not been active on this site for several years, but since I've got a project I want to do to my 5 ton, I started researching on here again. And stumbled upon this post today while at work. I drove mine up from California via a side trip to AZ.. 4000ish miles.. averaged about 9mpg. Loaded down with household stuff...
Glad to see other's on here living up in this great state. I've seen some Green Iron, but only in passing.. never knew anyone here who has some.

New member in Wasilla, picked up this M35A2 over the weekend. I have grand plans for it (who knows what I will actually accomplish). One of the first will be the replacement or rebuild of the transmission as synchros are on the way out. Hopefully I can find one up here somewhere.

Welcome! I might be coming through Anchorage in August, trying to meet a few other members. I'm a Fairbanks/Southeast resident but PM me if you ever want to try and get together!

Hah, just spotted this thread. Moved up here last year, still have to bring a last load up from down South. Right now I just have a Haflinger, but this year I'll probably be bringing a Unimog in. In the past I've had other Unimogs, M35A2C and a D, M151, WC51/52, various trailers, gennies, mobilizers, etc. Used to buy lots of stuff out of DRMO Yermo Annex, next to Ft. Irwin. Once I get a shop built, planning on getting a Weasel or Otter up here. Anyway, good to see other MV folks up here.
