If you ask the Farmer, the Army truck is not a toy. The Farmer's Wife is reserving judgment. We bought the 1991 5-ton, 6-wheel drive Army truck from a local auto repair shop a year and a half ago. Randy intended to add a feed box to the back of the truck and use it to feed cattle in the winter.
But on Friday we were both literally and figuratively on our way to adding an Army truck feed wagon to our farm's fleet.

With a top speed of 58-teeth-ratting miles per hour, it took him 4 hours to get there. Thankfully, I left an hour after him and didn't have to follow him the whole way.
Back during the Korean Conflict, Randy's Dad drove an Army truck.

Yes, there is that.
