is the 5 ton an a-2 or a-3 the duce looks to be in good condition if you don't have the air lock t- case remember 1st gear starts after using reverse or the sprag stays engaged. as for the cucv is it still 24 volt or has some one butchered the electrical system. I have full manual packages for all those trucks in electronic format.

The CUCV is original, almost. She has the 24volt system. Still has the 6.2 and turbo 400. I've put Hella off-road lights up front, new aftermarket front seat with arm rest, top mounted back up lights, and a receiver hitch. Deuce is a 65. She is a "sprag" She too has front and rear aux lights, LED this time. Put in electric wipers, rerouted heating system, and some 12v outlets and breakers. I installed a front pintle for easier 105 moving in tight quarters. She is running bucket seats out of a CUCV for my comfort. LOL
The 5ton is a modified A1. Still has the Cummins 855 naturally aspirated. The military super singled her out in 2010. I have installed a block heater, spare tire cover, and am currently working on the parking brake and low air pressure lights. Seems they only work when it is "cold" outside. Strange, huh? I am a member of another MV forum and I am searching their threads for an answer. None found yet. LOL The trailer is a military modified M1061a1. They did the mod in the "sand box" and were unable to keep her when they got back state side. Bad for them, good for me! LOL

God bless,
Tony

Good pics. Cool stuff. Did you buy them at auction or do you have a 'connection' for getting military stuff? I contracted work on a military base near Cols Oh and they had sales /auctions but I never saw any of those types sell there.

(Don, let me know once he has your email and I'll remove it from the post ....save you from getting on lots of spam lists)

Lots of cool stuff. That would be an intesting hobby. I wish that I had the space.
