M977A2R1 5900 mi. Runs and drives great. What's especially nice is that it'll run 70 down the highway in stock form!!
1996 model overhauled by Osh in 2007. Last painted in 2016 and the bed doesn't have a scratch in it. Even came with almost all BII, including winch and crane remotes. All tires >80%. All LED's on the lighting.

Did you actually get the truck?..I thought "Lucked out" meant a 'Lost Deal opportunity', :unsure:
Yes, I have truck. I've always taken "lucked out" to mean I was successfully lucky. As opposed to "my luck ran out" or I was "unlucky". In any case, I simplified it.

Wow. Nothing much more to say.
REALLY NICE looking truck!

I echo the idea of "always wanted one of these". Not sure about the "always" part, but it sure would be cool to have!
Going down the highway at 70 would be really exciting so long as there isn't any traffic in sight.

HeckOfATruck!

Drive her, do work with Her, Drive Her.
Texas be big, Let Her take you where you ain't been.
Yes, it'll get driven. It will be one of the centerpieces of our Critical Resources Team which responds to assist other utilities in natural disasters or other emergency response situations. Will get our signature blue and black paint scheme.

It's a shame to paint such a purty truck - but she definitely has a mission now - and Blue and Black are her colors.

Sweet. I know the A2 has the DDEC-IV engine and the 5 speed auto, but what does the R1 denote?
The R1 designation is for vehicles that went through the first "Recap" or rebuild procedure done by Oshkosh. This particular model was an A2 off the line, then subsequently got the R1 upon rebuild in 2007.

I guess technically my M985 would be an R1 too as it went through a "0" reset program at Oshkosh in 2001 where is was rebuilt as a "New", 0 miles truck with warranty.

Cool trucks, mine is a m778 fuel hauler . Bought it thinking was going to use it for hauling fuel for my business in North Dakota. Decided to pull tank stuff off and build flatbed on it. Low hours fun truck.
