Military Truck M1078 AO
1995 Military M1078 AO 2 1/2 ton Cargo Truck made by Steward & Stevenson. Has Air brakes but dose not require a CDL under 26,000 lbs. Weighs 17,700 lbs with a GVWR of 22,700 lbs. Only about 2500 miles on this truck since it was sold by the Military. The numbers show it was a Air Force M1078 AO Cargo Truck.

    I have put over 100 miles on it with out a problem!  Sold to the Military for almost $104,626.00 originally. I will be selling it for $26,500.00 before winter. I still need to enjoy it more and fine tune a couple things. Just bought 4 new better tires for it!

   Already pulled a lube order on it and bought the new up graded Fan Assembly. Bought 4 new Snow Chains for the tires. Put a Stereo and speaker system in but did not cut any part of the dash, used original screws to hold it in place. I installed a New 1,000 watt Block Heater for winter starts. Has a Push Button Either System also for quick starts and no power for the Block Heater. The Government has already up graded the Drive Shafts to new the style also!

     Original tires have been replaced along with all new batteries. As it warms up I can go to the Car Show in May I missed last year because of the Pandemic!! Just need to wash our road dust/dirt off the bottom it was so pristine clean when I brought it home just before winter after our Big Wildfire! I wanted fair pictures of the bottom for a 26 year old truck.
