My new truck-another M35A2

I just placed my order for a rebuilt M35A2 from Boyce Equpiment in Odgen, UT. Its a 1968 Kaiser Jeep.

Im heading up to pick it up on Sept 9th...man I cant wait. I have been regreting it ever since I sold my old 1971 AM General Deuce back last october, but hind sight is always 20/20

I have a military PTO winch sitting in my garage ready to install and also several gallons of 686 tan ready to spray when she gets back home. I am going to repaint desert tan w/the desert storm inverted V.

Im still not sure if I am going to keep the NDTs or flip the hubs, and single out the rears w/49in 395/85r20 michelin XMLs...decisions decisions

Once I get the tires sorted out I am going to save up and put lockers in the rear axles (and maybe in the front but i need to install power steering before I lockthe front)

Here are the prices for (basically) your 3 options for picking up a deuce....the short answer is anywhere from 9500 to 14000 (depending on the company and options you choose)

Here is the long answer lol

I am paying more than "normal" because the company I am buying from is going through the truck from bumper to bumper and replacing/repairing the entire truck.

I have seen them sell from "the mans" auctions anywhere from $810.75 to around $3500 but they vary wildly in terms of quality and state of repair.

If you buy from an individual they can range from $1200 on up to $8000 or $9000 depending on the quality of the vehicle and how it was used (parade/show truck vs bubbas truck off the farm)

If you want to buy a rebuilt truck (Which is what I am doing) there are two places, Boyce Equipment and Memphis Equipment). Boyce charges 9500 for a w/winch truck and hard top (including bumper to bumper refit). Memphis charges around $13,000 for their trucks.

Im not going to bob it...
for one I just cant take a torch to a piece of history, especially a military vehicle (granted there are 1000's of these trucks out there...I just cant bring myself to do it)

secondly if I wanted a 4x4 w/rockwells, I wouldnt spring for a deuce just to cut out one axle...I would rather build a jeep or something w/rockwells instead of taking the torch to a piece of military history (again yes i know there are 1000's of these trucks out here....but still)
