    Ah, the military surplus truck. The backbone of rural American fire service. My hometown's area was absolutely covered with those old Willys pickups. They sure fought a lot of fires. There are still a couple of 5-tons and deuce-and-a-halfs around here, too. Indestructible!

    You got that right! Without Military Surplus we would still be using some really old, worn out stuff. There is still a lot of it running around this area, in fact, one department in the county has obtained all but two of their apparatus from surplus. They have a 1996 KME Engine, a 1993 Pierce 85' Quint, a 2005 International KME 3500 gallon tanker, a 4400 series International 4x4 as a brush/rescue, and a Tahoe all from surplus.

    The 2001 Freightshaker is Surplus, it replaced this 1968 M54 6x6 under our tanker.

    The 1999 M35A3 replaces this 1969 Dodge W200 Crew Cab that was ex-Air Force.

    We had an M38 Jeep that was used as a brush rig, very handy, but also pretty dangerous. It tossed the motor so it got turned in for de-mil. Our biggest home run with Surplus was the (20) Scott 4.5 NxG2 Airpacks we got last Fall. The each have (2) 60 min bottles, RIT hookups, CBRNE regulators, they are equipped with SEMS, and an integrated Comms system that happened to have the correct hookups for the radios we use. They also threw in a 5 stage breathing air compressor and fill station. This stuff replaced our old Scott 2.2's that were all NFPA 1987. Like you said, it is the backbone of the Rural Fire Service and the stuff may be ugly but it works, it's easy to work on, and it's tough!

    Yep, that's right... I'll have to stop by and take a look at yours sometime. I do miss the walk-in.

    Here is our newest a 2012 Quantum. I love the unpainted doors makes it look like a beer can. But I do like the chassis.
