Who am I kidding, I would probably part with the pair to get a hold of this beast.

Looks like first gen fiberglass 998 where's the armor?
I like my JK better and I get to drive the free ones on post all week.
Ps drove my first armored turboed 6.5 what a difference!

Funny you post this, I spent a good amount of time last weekend looking at some M35's.

You are correct, that's definitely a 998 and not an up armored model. Still, that's not a bad price for an original HMMWV with 5k on the clock. IIRC the Army paid 36k for a stock 998.

OH WOW!

the seats look uncomfortable :ROTFL:

kidding that thing is amazing... I want it :D

Why would anyone that's been in the Army want a 998? I spent half of my garrison life stuck in the motorpool "servicing" those hunks of S**t. They drive like doo-doo, break half shafts, eat tires and ALWAYS have something leaking! BAH!

Only if it came with a functional MK-19....

They do ride on the rough side but you have to expect things to break when you treat them like crap. I was in the motorpool with my 1116 every night after being out all day doing missions. It's called preventive maintenance. That truck never let me down even with the tonnage of add on armor we added and red lining the damn thing all over Baghdad.

Actually the only thing that ever let me down was the lazy *** mechanics. It didn't matter what you brought in a vehicle for. Those turds would consider a complete rebuild operator level then sit there stuffing their faces with their "to-go" plates and watch us wrench for 10 hrs right after coming back from a 3 day mission. If we were lucky we could get one off his fat *** long enough to pass us a wrench.
