    The post about how do you 4 wheel made me want to post where I 4X4 around home. I do it around my home which is sorta in the middle of no where. Located outside of Okanogan Washington on the Eastern Side. So I don't have to drive far in fact during the winter I have to have a 4X4 just to get to town most of the winter. I have 40 acres to do what I want on and 1,000 of acres around me to just play in. I do like living in the country and having a peice of the rock of my own now. This picture was taken in a Ultra Light over my place. Mark[​IMG]

    WOW... awesome

    tell us.. does it get cold there... lonely?
    is it a drag to be far from town?
    Were 12 miles to downtown, 3 miles from the 5 freeway and it seems a long way everytime I need parts

    Do you have any close ups of the land? It looks like there are several good rock climbs and other fun obstacles. I want to say how lucky you are but you worked for it so luck really had nothing to do with it... You have something to be very proud of there.

    Yes it snows but fun to drive in it! Pic

    Yes we get snow but then you get to go out and play in it! This is my 1953 M-37 I built a while back playing about 1/4 mile from my house. I don't get lonely and I do live around 12 miles from a small town of 4,000 people with only one blinking red light to control traffic. I can mail order any parts I need and Chevys are easy to get parts for in town. We had 14 inches of new stuff yesterday. [​IMG]Mark H.

    That's badass. Why did you put an atv winch on the front of your M-37?:D

    In case I got stuck!

    That Baby could pull the frame out of alinment with a snatch block for sure. I would like to mount on like it on my Chevy some day. This was a hard picture to take. I had to get out of the truck to take it get back in a finish the hill. Thank God for low gears and 4X4s. The whole bottom is protected with custom skid plates I built for it. It was a tore apart wreck when I got the M-37 but in time I restored it. Mark[​IMG]

    Thought you might like this picture

    This is a 1948 Power Wagon sitting next to the M-37 I also restored. I also like old Iron to drive around in. This is a view out the back of my parking area behind the house[​IMG]. Mark H.

    A little Bullet Proofing

    This is some of the skid plates I built to protected the transfer case, brakes master cylinder and linkage, muffler, radiator and fuel tank. You jack the truck up on any one of them,[​IMG] there not for show. They have been tested a few times. Mark

    I've been wanting to add a WM-300 to my collection for a long time but the cost is kind of prohibitive. I'd settle for a M-37 with a braden winch

    Go for the M-37!!

    The PW is realy a show rig for off road use. The truck is so stiff you have to craw over the bumps or hit the roof with out a seat belt on. The M-37 has way better springs, floats better at high speeds and much cheaper to fix up. The PWs are so far over priced to get parts for it will suck the bank dry, it did mine and I had to sell it. The problem with old iron is it is slow but you get there in the end. I just like restoring old trucks, then enjoying them for a while and sell them. It is the only way I can't afford to have had so many different ones but do enjoy them for a while. The M-37 is a work horse for sure not a freeway flyer but it [​IMG]can climb rocks!! Mark H.
