    My new to me 1988 M35a2 18,000 original miles, completely overhauled in the late 90's at the tax payers expense, 47" tires, multi fuel motor, 6 wheel drive. The good people at Turbo Turf set me up with skid mounted pump assembly with a wireless controller and a 3 lane turret boom. 1035 gallon tank from tank depot. The cost of the whole entire set up including the truck is just under $10k. I cant wait to try this thing out.

    That's a beast, where's the flame thrower at?
    That should handle everything that's thrown at it.

    the good thing about this truck too is that I can run it on waste oil or any combustible liquid. Parts for the most part are really cheap, lots of government surplus stuff available. Plus even with a fully loaded tank I should still be under CDL weight class( just barely though).

    I did debate back and fourth for a while between buying another F-550 or going this route and now that it is all set up Im glad I chose this way, I got twice the truck for about 1/10 the cost of a new F-550

    Wonder what it would take to fab up some plow mounts and hang something off the front

    probably wouldn't take much, I have a 12' non power angle plow that I am thinking of putting on.

    I will be leaving it in camo for this winter but I plan on blasting it and painting it a satin black in the spring time. All my trucks are black so this one will have to match the rest

    Ya that is really sweet. Perfect rig for getting coffee in the morning. I think those type rigs are still growing in popularity. Good score.

    yeah I figure I can make a little money with it before I have to use it as a doomsday bug out vehicle, haha. They are starting to get a little more pricier since the whole prepper movement started. You used to be able to get them from the government liquidation sites for next to nothing

    CDL has nothing to do with the weight of the vehicle and it's load.

    I know right? I wonder if anyone will try and stop the truck in a driving ban?
