So I have been looking for a decent square body for some time now. Didn't really have my eyes on anything in particular, but the frame and body needed to be in as good of shape as I could find.

Last week I came across this beast on marketplace up in Massachusetts. It's a 1986 Chevy M1031. Which is the military CUCV service truck.

It is I'm great shape. Frame is rock solid, and the cab has very, very little rust. It is also mechanically sound. A couple little leaks, but that's to be expected.

It has the 6.2 diesel, th400 trans, np205 t case, king pin Dana 60 front axle with a limited slip, 14 BFF rear with locker, and 4.56 gears. The service body is all aluminum. It used to have a PTO driven generator and air compressor, but those have since been removed. The PTO is still on the t case though.

My plans are to keep it fairly original, but add a few creature comforts to suit me better.

I had 6 days left going into December and I start with 11. If I hadn't taken my vacation in November it would have been 10.
I just soldered on two new reverse sockets to my Impala and what a PITA that was. The copper wire was so old and nasty that is was difficult to get it to work for me. Hope you have better luck with that.
My soldering for wires is dog crap unless I can have them both lined up perfectly.
My circuit board soldering is much much better.
I sold both testicles to get here!

I have never ordered from Jegs. Which is surprising.
Sounds awesome
