Exclamation What do you think of bobbed deuces?

I think it would be fun to own one, and who cares that it would make Al Gore angry. And it would be great for driving over lowered rigs during times of civil unrest.

I'd like to get a bobbed deuce on big ass Michelin XSL's. A bobbed unit would be fun for the trails and would make a nice recovery vehicle.

It would be a bear to store/park/work on it.. the price is right but no room in the city .

Best bang for the buck when it comes to military vehicles, that's for sure.

Come to think of it.. is it possible to build a roll bar/cage to support that much weight in a rollover? The cab would be squeezed like a grape..!

I like 'em. www.govliquidation.com has been dumping tons of them-lots in Alabama lately (I think 300+ units)

You can burn almost anything in them-dump strained used motor oil and 50% diesel, gas, kerosene, vegetable oil and wierd combinations as long as you stick close to 50% diesel base.

You can get a unmodified running truck (6x6) for around $1500 if you shop around. They also do not require a CDL if registered under 26k GVW...they weigh about 13k stock so that leaves you about 12k towing capacity when loaded with fuel and tools. 55MPH is about the top speed though-by adding extra tire height and shedding some weight by bobbing them-you can get them into the 60+ MPH range.

Lots of info at www.steelsoldiers.com if you want to read up more and get good forum support.

If I recall the Bobbed Humvee for sale in Europe for stupid money [80,000$ after exchange]. I wonder how they hook up the t-case, it looks like they had re angle the driveline and move the fuel tank to get things to work.

The best bet is to find a project hmmwv already taken apart by someone, then roll your own.

Problem is a M35 will cost you 1200-2500 at auction and its hard to find surplus hmmwv's complete, the cheapest junker hmmwv project I found was $7000 for a 6.2, with no electrical and everything in boxes.

I wouldn't mind seeing more pictures of the bobbed hmmwv.

Be aware that the 5th and 6th pics in the original post are 5 ton trucks, not Deuces. They are based off of the 800 series 5 ton trucks. A good rule of thumb with the older military cargo trucks is 6 lug = Deuce, 10 lug = 5 ton or larger.

Just started another one for a customer--- it will look exactly like this one (same paint and tires) except it has a winch on the front, and it will have a matching trailer on 49s as well!

I'll post up finished pics when we get r done! Should look cool with the trailer!!!

I think about $600 ish for weight regular commercial, and I think under $150 for "historical" plates.
