Default Brought home a new toy.

1942 Military Duece 6x6 with a 1956 Banam dragline crane. Thought maybe it was worth sharing. Can't say I've ever seen one before, had to have it. Let the pictures describe the rest.







I can work on some higher quality pictures if anyone would like to check this thing out more.

Digging a pond for a buddy thats letting me store it at his place. After that, not sure. Was a good deal and a pretty neat piece to own.
