    M35a2 is what that's called. You're forgetting the best part, it's hydro brakes and has a gvw of under 26k. The engine also runs on anything.

    M35A2's were AM Generals. The Kaiser would be an M185a3 as a 2.5 or XM813 as a 5 ton.

    Another cool feature is they changed the bed and converted it to a dump.

    My plans are to make one of these my next project, although I don't want an old truck for a few reasons. I don't want a manual trans, don't want dual tires, and prefer a Cat over the NHC250 small cam Cummins, and they're 12v.

    I'd like to get an M35A3 AM General 2.5. 93/99 model. Those have 3116 Cat's with turbos, single wheels, Central air inflation systems, and they are automatics. I also have been looking at the newer model M931A1 tractor trucks with single wheels, 5 ton with Cummins NHC250, and auto's, but they're going pretty high, and again I'd like a Cat. Although the 250 Cummins turbo'd would be sweet! The tractor would be a good candidate for a frame mounted spreader. Plans would be to fab a mount and use my full size 8611 on it.

    Dreaming for now, but it may become a reality before next season.

    The price on the above truck is quite fair IMO.....especially with the plow and dump body!

    Kaiser/Jeep made the M35A2's too. I've seen plenty at auction.

    The m35A2 I drive was made by Kaiser in 1972. It is an awesome truck to run. Used as a wild land fire truck, used it to retrieve a stuck truck last summer.
