What are the best years and models of deuce based water trucks out there? Looking to rig up our own private brush truck of sorts to use in case of fire on a large ranch. Any good sources for quality trucks you guys recommend? Thanks

I think a M939 series 5 ton would make a much better brush truck . You can probably find former brush trucks on GSA auctions.
I agree with this mostly because I've read about how some VFDs were looking to buy a deuce with plans to totally overload it with water. 5-tons definitely make better water tankers since they are more - trucky? - than the deuce (I tell people the M35 is pretty much the baby of US military cargo trucks).
