Mine is so far from stock now, it's a totally different truck ! Now when I see someone else's engine compartment I have to do a mental shift in my thinking !I think if it started its life as a deuce and you can still see it, it counts. Though I'm a little biased as time goes on and I mod mine more and more away from stock.
Have you ever driven a vehicle with a spool, or selectable locker in the front?I am in agreement with Rusty on this matter. I have enjoyed ugrades on one of my M35'sin partuclar, such as the bomb crane, hardtop, and winch, but these are original features to the truck. I did go beyond originality with my 24 volt/ 110 volt , 30 ampere inverter, this way I can run common tools for work, also the front axle lock outs, and I plan to put a spool in my front axle, maaking it like a solid axle!

yea mines a pain in the butt with the detroit locker in the front, was hard to steer on NDTs, the wheel would whip back straight at warp 9 after turns on pavement and id keep my hands on the outside to catch/slow it, then became impossible on 395s to steer on pavement without hubs. would be nice to have select-able 6x6 on the fly and when im pulling something from pavement to dirt i lock one hub so i can still steer, like when i pulled this tree out of the middle of the street when it fell a few hundred feet and into my lot, planned vid of that pull but they were too busy filming the ground so all i have is the 2nd stage when i had time to process it into a log a few days laterHave you ever driven a vehicle with a spool, or selectable locker in the front?
Well yes and no, I ripped out all my modification wires, As I could not remember were in heck they went, and what to from years past.Sometimes total "demolition" of existing product, and starting all over (from scratch) is the best way to do something right.
Is that what I understand you did here, dmetalmiki?
Hello another ahab, and you ask " what was my thinking" ? HA, I am going to be honest. IM A SHOW OFF! When I drive around with my duallys, either on my M37, or my M35. everybody notices it ( especially the woman). And then I have ( the pleasure) of explaining to some how and why I do that . It isnt bad having duallys on the front of my WC53, but on the M35, its hard to steer.
Yea guess I got lucky as my draft number was high and was still 2S when I turned 18. Do not think I would have made it but it also could have changed my life for the better. Must have been scary and a lot of Adrenaline waiting to light up the enemy. Where did you serve in action?That does look real cool ! Just like I was back in my tank at night getting ready to light up some enemy vehicle.
Dang. Can't open it.G'day everyone,....
The down Hill Slide.
