I have an American General M931A1 6x6 5-Ton tractor variant Army truck first built in 1986. This truck went through the Red River Army Depot refurbishment program in 1991 and was completely rebuilt to "As New" including new... Cummins NHC-250 engine(8.3L), Allison 5 speed automatic trans, Micheline tires, brakes, even paint. The Red River program zero times these trucks to as new condition. This truck only has 2795 miles and 97 hours on it(Not a miss print). It is a 6 wheel drive truck with HI/LO range. Low range will pull a house off it's foundation. I've easily towed/dragged 40' sea containers(8500lbs) across the ground with little effort. You do NOT need a CDL in Indiana to drive one if used for non commercial purposes (personal use). Check with your state. I use it on my farm to hall logs out of the woods and pull my neighbors tractors and hay wagons out of the mud every spring. These trucks have power steering and air brakes. My 5'3" wife drives this truck with ease(she's a keeper). It will do 70mph on the highway with no problems. It's equipped with the winter heater option and Micheline tires. The Micheline tires are very important. The other tires available are Goodyear's. I owned a 5-ton with those tires. Ask anyone and they will tell your that the Goodyear's are terrible. They are egg shaped and the truck rides awful and bounces all over the place when unloaded. I can confirm that. The M931A1 also has ABS brakes and has conventional air up tires. The M931A2 has a in cab auto tire inflation system that leaks like a sieve and breaks alot. This truck is also a non turbo, but has the same horse power(250HP) as the turbo model without the expense. I just installed (4) new 1000 cranking amp 72 month batteries($500). If you don't want the 5th wheel hitch just unbolt and remove it. These trucks will fit the standard 5-Ton cargo box or 2.5 Ton cargo box, or a 14' flat bed. The tractor frame is shorter than the cargo variant, but if you unbolt the spare tire rack and tool box behind the cab, it will fit. From the back of the cab to the end of the frame is 14', same as the cargo box. I have a full size matching spare tire/wheel and exhaust stack extension for the truck too. These trucks were $69K new to us tax payers. The Red River rebuild program was another $50K. You are buying an as new $119K truck for $17K. It's time to get some of that tax money back. These trucks with this low mileage are drying up, and are gone from the surplus auction sites. The military has gotten rid of them and has moved onto the Oshkosh cargo trucks. I HAVE A CLEAN INDIANA TITLE IN MY NAME. NO TRADES, NO HOLDS.
