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 when it was sold by the Military. The numbers show it was a Air Force M1078 AO Cargo Truck.

    I have put over 500 plus miles on it with out any real problems!  Sold to the Military for $104,626.00 originally. I will be selling it before winter with assorted tools and Wildfire Equipment included. I needed to enjoy it more and fine tune a couple things at the same time. Just bought 4 new better tires for it! Boat load of LED Lights, Switches, ETC!

   Already a Lube order has been pulled on it and I bought the new up graded Fan Assembly. Bought 4 new Snow Chains for the tires and sized/tested to fit good. Put a Stereo and speaker system in but did not cut any part of the dash it is attached to the ceiling frame. 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! Been spending the last year going over the truck for problems and fixing any I found. Needed to know the truck better but it is very solid built and still like New!! The Military does not want a lot of lights and music for war time but in the States it is handy! So the truck is for sale now. $35,000.00 as listed. All Fire Equipment and Extra Towing Stuff removed $30,000.00 Cash

     Original tires have been replaced along with all new batteries. 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. Thanks for looking.
