Details by owner
I'm selling the Deuce!
I've had this truck since 2010; I have driven it about 3000 miles every year since, but it just seems like I can't find the time to enjoy it like I used to. Rather than see it sit in my yard, I'd like to find a new owner who can put it to work and enjoy it like I have.
The truck runs and drives perfect; no problems. It is ready to go right now. BUT...don't mistake this machine for some comfortable daily driver. It is noisy, either too hot or too cold, uncomfortable, and rough riding. But, I always get waves, salutes, and thumbs up from other people on the road. Except for Prius drivers. They don't seem to think too much of the truck.
Body is in good shape; a few dings and scrapes here and there. Could use some touch ups and elbow grease. But, it is solid and still looks good.
I have it licensed and insured in Oregon; title is free and clear and in my name.
This isn't a stock machine; I have a lot of aftermarket parts and accessories installed. This truck is a step beyond most M35's you'll find out there. Here are some of the specifics:

A day out on Sand Lake:
Link to my build thread on Steel Soldiers; basically documents my ownership of this truck from day 1:
This is located a few miles inland from Seaside, OR.
Price is $12,000 cash only. I might be willing to do part trade for an engine driven portable welder; lincoln ranger, miller bobcat or trailblazer, or something similar. Must be in less than 10 years old and in good-excellent condition. No other trades though.
