A cherry-picked MONSTER in museum-quality shape! This ‘95 BMY 5 Ton Cargo and Troop Carrier truck was decommissioned in March 2014 and is awaiting its first real owner! It is fully road-worthy, has a Virginia title, registration, and is insured. A Red River Army Depot complete rebuild, top-to-bottom in 2009, this truck saw near zero use afterwards. Yes it is used, and you can’t expect it to be perfect, BUT, Super-low miles (475) and hours (211) indicates this truck is like new and never endured a hard life to begin with. Search the internet high and low, shop all you want, you WILL NOT find another 5 Ton with this small amount of use. This truck is a rare find indeed!
Under the hood is the bigger MORE POWERFUL and most sought-after Cummins 6CTA 8.3 Liter In-Line 6 Cylinder Turbo-Supercharged Diesel engine. The powertrain is an automatic Allison MT654 (sweet!) 5-speed transmission and a 2-speed Rockwell transfer case. The full-time 4X4 switches to a 6X6 with a small lever in the cab. Weighing in at 21,500 lbs, this THOR of a truck can carry 10,000 lbs. (5 tons) in the bed, plus tow a military trailer with 5,000 lbs. (2 ½ tons). 14’ dropsides allow for easy loading, and you could lower the troops seats (never before used) to haul friends and family to previously inaccessible hunting grounds or flooded areas.
Squeaky clean interior, quiet engine, power steering easy enough to turn with a finger, and smooth shifting makes driving this BEAST a pleasure. Highway speeds up to 65 mph allows a surprisingly good 10-11 mpg. This hard-core truck also sports creature comforts such as in-cab heater to keep your toes toasty warm in the winter. Extra features just added include locking door handles, anti-theft and safety devices, and even brand-new Interstate batteries (6 Ts).
DC Metro traffic gives you an unusually wide berth and scampers out of your way as you cruise along. You get a clear view ahead since the truck stands at just over 10’ tall! Other drivers get a clear view of the massive 48” tires, high clearance of the undercarriage. The nimble ABS brakes allow the truck to stop on a dime, and give change. Equipped with a Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS), a push of the button allows you to regulate the tire pressure and go across any terrain, sand, or mud. This TORQUE MONSTER can power through the toughest off-road conditions and go anywhere – it would be almost impossible to get this truck stuck!
This truck has a cool pedigree, belonging to 3/319 AFAR in 1st BDE, 82ND Airborne. All The Way! Sports a Chaplain bumper number thanks to its current owner
No warranties express or implied, this truck is for sale “as-is” with no promise as to condition or working order, or mechanical soundness (Legal speak for “once you buy it, it is ALL yours, including any problems that might crop up later, and you won’t get mad at me if something breaks or is already non-functional).
Contact Diesel Joe for an appointment to see this beast in action…no joyrides, Class B CDL or CDL permit needed to drive.
We started with the cleanest stock 6X6 M923A2 Drop Side Cargo Truck from the military that we could find. We cherry-picked this super-clean truck off the lot! You won’t find a 5 Ton locally or on the internet that has such low miles and hours as this truck. This truck could fetch a ransom, but we want to pass along the fine heritage, prestige, and provenance to a collector who will baby this truck.
Be prepared to stand out in any military reunion, hunting trip, fair, parade, truck show, wedding, off-road rally, or night on the town. This is one of the most rugged, go-anywhere work or play trucks that you will find! After a day in the mud with this truck, get your hose out, spray it down and as soon as it dries, valet park it at the nicest restaurant in town and have a nice dinner. I guarantee that it will be left out front waiting for you after dinner - both for the attention it will draw AND for the fear you'll see in the valet's eyes at the thought of trying to park it!
Clear Virginia title, registration, and inspection in hand, this bad boy is street-ready.
NOTE THAT THE BOTTOM OF THE CARGO BED IS A WHOPPING/SHOULDER-STRAINING 59" (4 Foot 11 Inches!!) OFF THE GROUND!! PERFECT FOR GROCERIES;-)
