I found a M37 on gov.deals, that was located in the next county over. Since I already have a nice M37, and Ferro was handy, I talked him into bidding on this one. It was a wild ride, but Ferro finally won the auction.
We were supposed to go together on Friday to retrieve the M37 from it's...
I needed new tires for my M814, and BFR metals, in Salina Ks, had a few to sell. So, I roped Ferro into going with me, and we hiked out to Salina to pickup the tires, and what ever goodies we could find.
Glen was a big help with the front end loader fork lift, and we had the tires loaded in...

Like any used vehicle, you have a punch list of "little things" that you want to take care of. The problem is, an 814 is not "little". Ferro and I found some things, while not trip stoppers, needed to be addressed before I could hit the road again in security.
Things like the Emg stop...
Making a roundtrip from South Carolina to Fort Dix New Jersey. Small pickup going northbound, Nov 4th, already pretty full. Coming south, will have M814, and loads of room. Small pickup will be in tow.
I need some big time help at Fort Dix. I have an M814 that just cleared the EUC, and I can't get GL to hold the M814 an extra week when I am on vacation, and can come get it. Is there anybody that can pull my M814 off Fort Dix, and hold it for one week?
I found this M715 in a junkyard. It has been worked on for the local fire dept, but other then that, looks complete. I did not look at it very hard, just long enough to take some pictures. I don't even know if it is for sale yet.
