Alright folks! Put your blinders on and look past those other nine amazing trucks in the running this month. Focus on my little ol' M35A2. I'm calling it... This is the month of the Deuce!

Over the remainder of the month, I'll give you several good reasons to vote for my Deuce (ha... as if you need a reason)!


Reason #1 - She is very well behaved and plays well with her friends (she even lets CUCVs join in the fun) >>>>

Well, definitely an uphill battle in this field of entrants! My 931a1 had 2 prior civvie owners, and she seems to have been well-loved everything seemed to be in great shape when I got her, after driving her home through the California Gold Country from a little town called Murphy's about 50 miles away from me, I noticed some leaking axle seals, so that was the first thing I did after driving her home was to fix those.

I'm continuing the trend by trying to take great care I also serviced the air dryer which looks really good inside and basically told me that somebody has been loving this truck before I had it.

One of the reasons I picked this truck up was for something to use as a homemade fire truck during the fire Seasons out here. The guy I bought the truck from used it similarly, here is a pic doing firetruck Duty for him. 00101_g6dYIO1NuaN_600x450.jpg

When I serviced the air dryer besides keeping records in a folder I like to mark it so that somebody else can look at a glance if they don't have my records...20180629_182431.jpg

So here is how the truck currently sits in my vision as my Homestead fire truck. 20181114_145050.jpg 20181114_145117.jpg
I fabbed up the water tank skid and the drop-down skid that holds the pump and hose reel.

Thanks Ben Roberts. Working Trucks do seem to be a theme here and now mine is busy towing HMMWV's. I need to take more pictures, I honestly don't know who enjoys this old truck more. Since it's a contest I'm going to say my little buddy Briggs! He loves General Non-Sense because he says the big truck always wins if an accident happens.

This all terrain "Feldumschlaggerät" FUG 2.5 Y-4 is a great helper in the supply chain.
Powered by an aircooled Deutz Diesel Straight Six.
This 8.8 ton 4x4 steelsoldier drives in convoy with up to 50 km/h /32mph.

For streetlegal use you have to install the front bumper and get the mast between the driver and passengers cabins.

Feel free to vote for this always welcome friend between the deuces, 5t, 10t...... and tons on pallets to maintain supplies.:driver::driver:

Everyone loves pictures but I love life experiences tied to them. My truck is probably the coolest playtoy for my little buddy, Briggs. He was sad to see the Deuce leave when "General Non-Sense" showed up but that was short lived. We've been all over the place and he's only made one "Non-Traditional" modification. His greatest love in life is the Railroad Industry, mostly Steam Locomotives. He made me put a sticker on the tailgate that says "Warning, I Brake for Trains". Better that it wound up on my truck rather than his Momma's! Now so equipped, we have to obey the sticker and stop for every railroad crossing. I asked him why and he said "Because the 5 ton could possibly de-rail a train". I think he really fell in love with the truck when I explained that Cummins 14 Liters powered quite a few diesel electric locomotive switchers. Technically they used Big Cam engines but Briggs doesn't need to know the difference. It's his "locomotive" for street use. I wish I had pictures from the kid drop off line the first day of school to add! Alot of parents had no clue what to think.

I know I'm swimming against the current here, but I gotta try! I don't have kids, but on my first trip to home depot I let a father son team climb all over her, got quite the big grin from both of them! Pretty much every trip to the filling station, etc. goes this way which is cool by me. The owner of the local bicycle shop has a bobbed deuce, I often stop in there when cruising around. Trucks a big hit at family day too where we run a "squirt house" (house clearing drills with squirt guns!) 20170520_111328.jpg 20180630_120833.jpg

Regardless of how much I like the competition (and boy is there is strong competition, eg. I love Miggins' forklift!!), 155MM will continue to get my vote until he wins by at least one.

Cheers

Carboarius has one mighty fine MV.

As for Migginsbros' forklift... I don't care who ya are... The FUG is just fug-ing cool!
And ev2bfree - It's a M1075... a M1075!!!
