Surplus Army Truck Adventure! - Dirt Every Day Ep. 40

Published on Jun 9, 2015 2,632,909 views

On this episode of Dirt Every Day presented by 4 Wheel Parts, Fred shows how you too can get behind the wheel of a military truck by buying one on an online auction. Fred has had many big tough 4x4’s that were military surplus vehicles, but none as massive as the Stewart and Stevenson LMTV he gets from Gov-Planet, an IronPlanet marketplace, online auction site that sells surplus vehicles such as Hum-vees and deuce and a half trucks. Fred then takes the big truck on a wild adventure as he tries to prove that a giant military veteran can be a great daily driver and off road explorer.

Dirt Every Day appears every fourth Tuesday on the Motor Trend channel.

    Rick Sanchez C137 6 месяцев назад (изменено) Per Bjerre Jespersen I drink cappuccinos and macchiatos on all of my military deployments when I get to bases that have it... the four shot caramel macchiato I drink to wake up has more caffeine than a pot of coffee, so it sounds like you are drinking the sissy version... both in where you drink and the version of coffee you drink.... (I lucked out my last deployment, a 24 hour Starbucks 200 meters from my bunk——. U.S. Army deployments, your experience may vary)

  • Nathan Fitzgerald
    Nathan Fitzgerald 1 месяц назад Alot of people delete the CTIS on the trucks and the 5 tons if they are used outside the military, they'll use the air tank and air them down outside like everyone else, some CTIS works fine, but my experience they are more trouble when you dont need it, would have deleted it in my 5 ton but it is the A1 version.

  • Chus Papi
    Chus Papi Год назад Dave Breckon He could have bought a hummer. Like an H1. They do sell those too. But nobody calls them hmmwv either. We called them humvees.
  • Ob Fuscated
    Ob Fuscated 11 месяцев назад H1 is a Tahoe in drag. Nothing like HMMWV.
  • Chus Papi
    Chus Papi 11 месяцев назад Ob Fuscated Not that I like the H1, but they were originally assembled on the same line as the hmmwv. So they weren’t actually that different.
  • David Huxtable
    David Huxtable 11 месяцев назад thats bad service do they ship abroad or can you export them once you ve bought them I was thinking of importing a few to Tasmania and oz but a that rate youd have to wait half a year to resell them! again! aswell as shipping charges!
  • Xtragicfever

  • James Black
    James Black 4 месяца назад @David Huxtable I know when I bought a truck from Gov Liquidation, I had to sign a form specifically saying I would not ship it out of the country before I could pick it up. I'm sure it's the same with all military vehicles.

  • MorrillCornelius
    MorrillCornelius 3 года назад $4750 is the starting bid price; LMTVs usually bring 18-20K for a good runner, 6-10 K for a condition unknown truck. You also have to fill out a form stating what you will be doing with the truck and that gets sent to DOD for approval (Terrorist watch list check and such). You pay for the truck when you win it, but the approval can take up to 3 months and you cannot pick the truck up until afterwards. Also it is cash transfer only, he said "or Credit card" but that is only for small purchases, high dollar stuff has to be cash.

Came from the Army Air National Guard in Columbus Ohio. Never deployed. Only used for light training exercises. I got it for $8100 from GovPlanet / IronPlanet. Got it titled, tagged, and insured. It's in mint condition. :D
  • David Hollenshead
    David Hollenshead 2 года назад Old Military Trucks are great, when used on a farm, or other local area. They kind of suck, if you try to travel a long distance because of the cost of fuel, low top speed, and the issue of getting spare parts.
  • Samual Whittemore
    Samual Whittemore 2 года назад David Hollenshead VERY TRUE! I drive my 5-tons (923a1/a2, 936a2) up to the lake, its about 22 miles from house. That's about as far as I like to go. Fun for a weekend camp out in the back, or going to a drive-in movie with your friends(do that all the time with a picnic table in back). BUT ---> Serious off road stuff - > not so much. They are really made for gravel roads or light cross country. But fun all the same. And WAY, way, -> extremely under powered. My m936a2 (weighs 36k) w/8.3 turbo Cummins is an absolute dog... You have to switch to low range just to pull out of a steep drive way. Not kidding.
