My M35A2 Deuce and Half

Since I was a kid, I longed to own one of these lumbering giants. The M35A2 commonly known as the Deuce and Half is a 6x6 that is built to last. With a payload of 2 1/2 ton off road and 5 ton on the highway, I will have no issues carrying whatever I want. Moreover, I can carry it anywhere I need to and have little to worry about.

These are photos of my 1970 Kaiser Jeep Corporation Deuce and Half that I purchased from John Winslow. This is one of my favorite vehicles and I hope to pass it on to someone else someday so they can enjoy for many years to come.

Here is how the Deuce has evolved
