Re: Thanks for the sense....
WOW, did he repower it or is it military work? i read somewhere that the military was slowly replacing all the old white diesels with Cats, which engine is it exactly? i've been thinking about a deuce lately too, because it's big, badass, and will pull anything. fast? no. but i could build any offroad vehicle i wanted and just drive that beeotch up on the flatbed and head to the trail, no big deal. i cant figure out why they are limited to 55 mph though? is that because of the gearing, tires, what? i like the 5 tons that have 6 ~48" michelins instead of 10 DOT tires... looks WAY meaner and 4 less tires to mess with. i'd probably drop the middle axle out too, especially if i got the 5 ton version, because it'd help gas mileage and then i'd only have 4 tires to mess with [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] they are cheap as a mah****a on govliquidation.com but i dont even know if they run... most of them have been classified as "unservicable or uneconomical to service" so i dont know if it'd be worth buying. they are very badass trucks though, no doubt about it!
