I acquired an M37 from Grants Pass Oregon (it was on Facebook Marketplace for a while).

It was a fire truck and I'm going to return it to a fire truck again to be used at Rubicon Springs on the Rubicon Trail (just west of Lake Tahoe)

So, the existing, largely original drivetrain radiator, motor, transmission, transfer, case and both axles are coming out and I'm hoping that there's someone somewhere that will take the entire thing off me. I'm hoping it will do someone (or many someones) some good. I wasn't sure it was worth paying for premium to post a classified or not.

And what am I missing, you are going to use body and frame for...fire truck.

You are giving away the parts described?

The M37 looks like it has gray rims, maybe a Navy M37. If it is a Navy wagon it may be best to keep it that way. As good of condition it is, it would be great to keep it Navy Gray.

I wait to see what other opinions are.

Okay, let me try this. What is the best way to get rid of the entire drivetrain in one shot to someone who will make good use of it or part it out. Post classifieds here? Another site?

Yes, There are plenty of people on here that would benefit from your parts! Just build the extra few $ for the membership into the price of your parts. I’m curious as well, what are you using for the drivetrain, are you keeping the frame, or just pulling the body off and dropping it on a modern chassis?

If only you were closer, I'd likely take all those parts off your hands to use for the M37 I recovered earlier this year.

PM sent.

I'm keeping the frame and leaf springs, they will work just fine.

Look at 6.0/4l80 and Dana 60's front and rear as the most robust and easiest to repair combination. This will live very remote and durability and ease of repair by the broadest range of people is a must.
