So I have been wanting a 2nd rig for a while and I couldnt decide between a Jeep, 70s ford 4x4 or a M35.

Well I finally made my decision (mainly affected by price) and I ended up w/a deuce-and-a-half.

She has the troop seats, and cargo cover (obviously not attached in the pics), and multifuel motor

unfortunately she doesnt have the PTO winch but I can add that later.

I can't want to take her out to Shiloh ridge offroad park or barnwell Mtn recreation area



PICS:

Those things are great my father had 3 of them at one point, both with winches and without and he had two turboed and one NA. My brother managed to get the front end off the ground going ditch hopping one day. Good luck with it.

LMAO they just might $h!t a brick....9-12mpg FTW!

actually most of the A2s already have turbos....unfortunately with these truck (and unlike normal diesel trucks) there isnt much of a performance gain from NA vs turbo according to the tech manual it was done mainly for emissions reasons. A few forum guys have dyno #s to back it up too...its a shame though :( imagine an 11sec deuce LMAO

Hehe, There are two of those at work, both turboed, and from the mid 80's Neither have power steering, does yours? Also, they will HAUL ANYTHING! The stuff they put on them is crazy haha.

Nice truck, hope you have fun with it :)

Nice truck! Do you intend to restore it or just drive it and have fun?
Well I am planning on repainting it and adding a winch but as for a "real" resto I dont have the money. After doing those 2 jobs I will probably just drive it for fun and restore it very slowly....(limited by $$$$)

It isnt PS or manual...its something along the lines of "air over manual" or "air assisted" in terms of difficulty to turn its about half way between PS and armstrong.


some more pictures now that the truck is home....

Ha, Sounds fun to drive... They are super loud, and the turbo whistle is crazy too... What are the plans?
Well I know I want to repaint it desert tan (or maybe camo) and add a pto winch. There isng much beyond that....maybe super single it but that takes $$$$$ and I need to save $$$$ until I find a job

Thanks! I wanted one that was in somewhat good shape... I didnt want "bubbas deuce off the farm" or anything like that.

I gotta clean the rims/repaint as well....they are pretty rusty but after a fresh coat of paint (rims and body) it should be looking pretty sharp
