I bought one of these 1025a2s, and i couldnt be happier. I love the Rod hall Suspension, which actually appears to raise the vehicle about 2 additional inches over stock. It also handles and drives amazing with no hesitation to overcoming any obstacles I've yet encountered, not to mention the huge springs, and oversized remote reservoir shocks just look absolutely as amazing as they preform. Eastern made it clear what would and wouldn't be included in the base price, at the time I was on a budget, so that was fine with me. They weren't sneaky or anything, they listed everything up front. They have great customer service people that can answer any of your questions, and help make sure you get exactly what you are wanting and expecting, no surprises at all. I have to say, I'm very pleased and satisfied with my truck, and experience with Eastern Surplus. You getb a good running, mechanically sound 1025a2, with a title. That takes all the guess work and doubt out of buying one. In the end its up to the individual as far as to exactly what they are wanting out of one of these trucks, but I am glad I went this route, and I love my truck! I would do it all over again. In fact, I am planning to. Hopefully by the end of the month, I will be buying my second one from them. Obviously they are doing something right.
I did the same…. The suspension is insane. You may think you c GC an build this yourself, you can’t.

huge remote reservoir shocks up front and 4 huge shocks with remote reservoirs out back.

pure hmmwv turned “trophy truck”

Get one while they exist.

Do these variants have the 12k halfshafts and portal boxes? Can't seem to find that info. They are the heavier 10,300 gvwr like the m1123 and I believe all those have the 12k halfshafts.

I'm looking into more info on these as their price seems to be quite good these days.

Yes.
You tell easily which variety has which by the spare parts catalog on AM General’s website.

the unique parts are in the custom shocks ,modified rear lower a-arms (for the 2 additional shocks in the rear), and pitman arms.

it seems parts direct from am general are about the same pricing as surplus.

All A2 and newer trucks will have 12k halfshafts. So if it was manufactured with a 4 speed transmission, then it has 12k shafts (though there is more than one type of 12k shaft)
The 3 speed trucks use 7 or 10k shafts (interchangeable)
