Got an email back from 100Dollarman.

They are no longer doing bobbed deuces.

In fact... All he has left is a 5 ton for $8500.


Fail.

Yeah, they are a 12ft bed. I used to go to home depot to get lumber with mine, and 12 ft boards would fit with the door closed. If the door was ope, youd get a few more inches. The bobbed ones almost always use a 9ft M105 trailer bed. Fun toys, I used to drive mine to work once in a while. The manual steering was hard on my back some days, though (pre-existing back issues)

Thats a M35A3, which is an A2, ripped down and rebuilt to be more modern. I just don't like the front end on them.

I paid under $4k for my excellent condition deuce, with PTO winch, air shift, hot water heat, newer top and cargo cover, and spare parts.

Look for sellers on Steel Soldiers. But be careful/aware of their posting rules, they don't post up auctions and such on there.

yeah, but I want mine with a quad cab and functional air conditioning so probably 3x or more for it


oh, and there's a fenton area pastor that posts on here once in a while - "Josh" I think is his name that from time to time has a deuce, or the m101 trailer for sale, or knows of same semi-locally.
