    I would back Sly up on this a 1000% neiowa owns FEPP. He has built an empire by knowing how to look in the right spots and get it done.

    Don't know where you are, but Florida has a waiting list for some vehicles. You have to request items you see on GSA through your local FEPP state rep. A quicker "cheat" is to find a buddy in law enforcement that will allow you to tag along when they visit the DRMO. You'll get a heads up on what will soon be available on the cycle that can be screened by Forestry. Usually, when its gone to GSA auction, it's too late to be screened by FEPP reps.

    Search here on FEPP or surplus and you'll find several threads. I have several of our projects at www.stanleyiowa.com

    Air Force surplus. Off road is the parking lot of a Hilton.

    Engine is a DT360 so a bit short on HP but happy at 60mph on the highway. I drove one from NE Iowa to Ft Campbell, KY soon after we got it. Short wheelbase so a bit of a rough ride (though better than my 66 Ford 3/4t.
