A little fancy for a M-37 but real confertable to sit on! Price was right FREE! The Arm Rests go up and down and they are adjustable too. I went for a drive today since I got the brakes done and all tuned up. Once the exsaust system is finished I am going to try it on some good hills off road for fun. Mark H.

Mark, I suggest you lay in about 4 inches of soft foam insulation overhead for when you go trail driving. And, don't forget to wear your crash helmet. As I remember from my army days, those trucks come equipped with about the same springs and shocks as a duece and a half.....gfp

That's what seat belts are for. I was supprised but it has soft springs as far as give on the bumps compaired to my Stiff Power Wagon had. I took it for a drive and it handled them better then my raised 4X4 Chevy does. Now when I took my PW off road it would throw you out of the seat big time on a bump because there is no travel on the springs in fact shocks were a option because of that. Mark H.

We have a Type II fire burning in Ellensburg right now and it is out of control. I am waiting to see how it turns out to see if local resourses can handle it. A high wind storm is blowing right now 35-55 mph winds and not helping them much. They are requesting more resourses but not the Forestry yet. Mark H.

BTW: Where did ya find this truck at Mark?

Willy-N    Posted 04-27-2004 at 17:57:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
About 38 miles from me. A freind moved to Texas and could not bring it with him so I bought it from him. They sell in Military Auctions often and your local fire departments sell them when they upgrade there Older Brush Trucks. Do a M-37 Military Truck search on Google you might find a few for sale.

They are custom RV Pedistal Seats you can put in RVs and Buses made by "Seats-n-Stuff" the head rest is also adjustible forward, back and up and down. Mark H.
