Well, what can I say. I love this truck. It's taken me 5 years to piece this together, and been spending almost every weekend since October wrenching on it. I've been eyeballing some 5-tons, but I think its time to give up the green iron and get back to school.
Details: 1999 M35A3, # 505385. This truck came out of Fort Polk last May, and I picked it up from the buyer in October. Truck has some cancer under the cab, but in areas not visible from the outside, and a simple cut and weld project (the channels under the doors). Other than that, there's really nothing wrong with this truck at all, completely mechanically and structurally sound. Truck starts instantly and runs great, transmission shifts excellent, all systems work. CTIS controller just returned from repair from CM Automotive, traced air leak to rear axle. Driver's seat cover is perfect, passenger seat cover has some grease marks (my fault) but zero rips or scuffs.
The only trouble spots on the truck are hub seals on the rear most axle (cause of CTIS issues), as well as needing outer seals and boots in the front axle. Windshields have good glass, but cancered frames. Drove the truck in 70mph winds and rain, cab kept the rain out.
Current mileage is inaccurate, but hours are documented and confirmed at 290 total time. I have the original GL webpage saved for the buyer's records.
Now, for the goodies! What I've installed as follows:

Previous owner rattle-canned with green camo Rustoleum paint, but looks pretty good. Was prepping the truck for a tan make over, just havent gotten around to it yet. This truck has been great to me, but its time I entertain selling the old girl and finishing up my school.
Looking for $15,000, with clear Texas title in hand. Listed as AM General 2.5 ton. I'll throw in some desert cammies that match the unit markings, some old alice packs and some misc. display gear as well.
