Correct. The typical 2.5 ton engine is the LDT465 thought here are a few other versions of the 465 and similar engines as well as the early gas engined models and the M35A3 has a Caterpillar engine. The only Cummins engine in a 2.5 ton that I am aware of are the few M35 conversions with the 6BT but they are very, very rare though it is possible to swap one in yourself.

Btw you can have auto tranny in those deuce .... all canadien M35 come with auto tranny. I know a place where they have at least a dozen of those trannys ... but they are located in Canada near Montreal and shipping would be a killer ... but if you ever want it automatic ... you have at least an option.

Yeah, I've driven an A3 with the 3116; pretty beastly. I would love to run an NHC in the deuce I'm buying, but then i can't toss all my used engine oil in the tank...

The NHC 250 Cummins will not fit in a Deuce. If you notice, the M44 series 2.5 and M39 and M809 series 5 tons are built the same and share the same cab, doors windshield frame, etc but the front end on the 5 tons is longer for engine clearance. Similarly, the M35A3 has a slightly longer nose and a much taller radiator which is what causes the stupid looking hood to be higher in the front than it is at the cab.

I know that the 2.5T and 5T trucks are very different and that the NHC (and it's extra components are huge), but it would be nice to have 250-300hp on tap...not that I need that...

I've seen owners report as low as 6 MPG to as high as 16 MPG, but generally it seems to be around 10 MPG as Cj8Scrambld stated.

That last bobbed deuce that went outta here last week reported a solid 10.5 mpg pulling the trailer 426 miles from here to Reno.

IIRC, a bobbed one is shorter than a long one I think Hundy can bob it to your desired WB, but not too much, since the same driveshaft is used...I think

Thinking about picking one of these up from you but have a couple of questions:

What are the internal bed dimensions?

Can it be made to fit a 82" x 130" buggy?

I know the 6x6 is rated at 5,000 lbs for offroad payload, will a bobbed deuce carry a 4,500 lbs buggy?

If there is absolutely no way of getting a buggy in the back...what will it tow a 16' trailer like?

Hey Mike-

The trailer bed that we use on the bob deuces is 9'. The stock bed is 12'. We can cut/customize a bed to any length.

When we customize the truck by taking out springs and an axle the load carrying capacity decreases. But I cant say what the rating will be. I think it could hold your buggy, but that is something you would have to decide on. You might consider going with a full size deuce with super singles---- we can put 6 46" tires on a stock deuce.

Call me for more info if needed---

I still havent measured the wheelbase-


We can make it any length though- I have the driveshafts custom made to my specs.

I'm amazed at all the interest in the bobbed M35A2's! I've had mine for sale on here for a while with very few bites. What size tires are your leaving with? I'm running 53" XZL's on mine. Also do you have any hydro assist units to get rid of?

Most of the Bobbed trucks have 395s or 14.00s when they go out of here--

Sorry- I dont have any hydros available. Wish I had a few kits right now--

You've got me really thinking about this if I can get stationed in CA again, do you do anything with the gearing when you bob it and add the 46's? I would assume you leave it stock since it's so low in the first place so I would guess that the top speed of about 55 is reffering to the bobbed rig. do any of them come with the winches? and what could be done to make it go about 65 pulling a trailer with two broncos

i bet a 12valve cummins swap would make it haul that pretty well. These things are so sick. I have been eyeing them at auctions lately.
