My new toy. Deuce and a half
I had been wanting one of these for awhile because they're AWESOME offroad and just cool as shit in general. I began the hunt a couple weeks ago and had a local member of another forum with one he would sell PM me. I looked at it the next day and left a deposit on it. I paid for it and got the title this weekend and now I'm just patiently waiting (or trying to) for DMV and USAA's commercial insurance line to open tomorrow morning so I can take care of the paperwork and bring it home. Here's a couple cell phone pics with my lifted F250 for now, I'll update the thread with better pics tomorrow after I pick it up. I can't wait to run some shit over!!!

Awesome! Should use that to tow your car to the track just to see what comments you get.

Ohh it will definitely see a lot of off road as well as on road driving, it definitely won't be a driveway queen.
So far I've ordered 4 24V KC daylighter flood lights 2 of which I'm going to use as extra headlights and the other two as backup lights aswell as 2 long range daylighters and 24V bulbs for them I'm going to mount higher and use for offroad lights. I also bought a dc-dc power converter so I can install a 12V hornblaster train horn kit. I'll also be adding a big Knaack job box and painting it to carry guns and tools in.
Next up on the mod list is the 53" super single tires, locking hubs, a locking diff in the front (maybe spool since I'll have lockin hubs). I'm also picking up the troop carrier sides, the bows for the canvas top and the canvas top from the guy I bought the truck with for a extra $500. He also said he would sell me a M105 trailer with the sides, top and bows for $500 since he has 30 of them.
I think I'm going to leave the paint as is, it was completely repainted by the military in 97 and sold a couple years later and the seller had kept it in one of his airport hangers ever since. The truck doesn't need anything, it is truely perfect but I can't leave anything along. My mind keeps telling me it NEEDS a train horn, super singles, locking diff, etc, etc.

I think you'll find those are all reruns, the truck they did sold to its third owner since the build this weekend.
I'm going to park it here at my house in falls church, come by after I get it and we can cruise up to chipotle in it or something.

You really need to check out each individual truck, you want to look for axle seals leaking which is common, engine leaks, air leaks and rust. There's really no known problems with vehicles, they are overbuilt like crazy and very reliable especially the A2's with the manual transmissions. I would suggest reading up on steel soldiers. If you make a post in the deuce section saying your looking to buy one and ask some questions you'll get some messages from people with them for sale and messages from people telling you where you can buy them. SS is a very good community.
I can't wait to bring mine home in the morning, I want to run something over so freaking bad.
The only thing I can't decide is what I want to get for the tag. You can get personal character combo's for antique tags in VA but your limited to 6 characters/spaces.

Yeah it is a inline 6. He told me there was two different turbo diesels that came in it and told me which engine it was several times but I don't recall. I definitely need to write down what is is though. The HP seems about right to what the seller told me.
