Custom 1996 Bobbed M35A3 4x4 shorty 2.5 ton Cat turbo diesel Allison Auto trans


Up for sale is another custom bobbed M35A3 built by C&C Equipment. We are the premier builder of custom 2.5 ton trucks and your 2.5 ton parts source. This is a 1996 model M35A3 that we have went through, We started with a clean stock 6x6 out of over 30 I have here shortened it up 3' and installed a clean 2006 model M105 9' bed and custom springs with all new hardware. It has a new custom built longer driveshaft [not lengthened like some] with bigger stronger u-joints. Hubs have been flipped on the rear and it is running a set of my custom 20x10 wheels on 95% plus Michelin 15.5xR20 XL tires that are 46.4" tall and 15.5" wide giving it a great stance. This also helps out on the top speed of 62+ mph instead of the stock 55mph. The truck has been checked out all over, seals get fixed where needed, brakes, lights etc.. The truck has many new parts like top, drivers seat, tires and wheels, driveshaft, etc... I keep all the parts in stock for these trucks so if it needs it, it gets put on, no covering anything up because you don't have something. The truck starts and runs great, it has the 175hp Cat 3116 diesel in it with turbo. Behind that is the Allison 4 speed automatic transmission that shifts great sending power to a Rockwell divorced airshift transfer case that works fine.  Truck is showing 11,500 miles and 1200 hours.
The A3's have some more creature comforts over the older A2 series, like air assist steering, better drivers seat, 3 point seat belts, higher Hp Cat diesel, auto transmission, in cab heater, insulation in cab and under hood, muffler, smaller steering wheel for more cab room, split braking system, etc..
The whole truck cab and chassis were painted along with the bed separate and finished out in the current 3 color camo pattern. The body is very clean and straight on this truck. The soft top is new so it will last you for years to come. The truck has been painted top to bottom with over 4 gallons of paint.
We take pride in building these trucks and it shows in our work. Our trucks tend to be nicer than most you will find out there. We pay attention to the details and spare no $ when redoing these. Check around I will be higher than most but you get what you pay for. Trust me, I get customers who try to save a few bucks and buy one from a guy who built one for the first time something you never want to do, and they come back to me buying parts to fix it and make it right spending money and time. I have built over 30 of these custom trucks like this including custom crew cabs, we cut no corners. If your looking for a nice truck ready to show and go and impress your friends here it is.
 I sell around 100 units each year so I know my way around these. If you have any questions e-mail me or you can call 812-336-2894. Best time to reach me {Clinton} is from 3:30-5pm during the week and on weekends the rest of the time I am in the shop working on these trucks. Bridgette works the phones during the rest of the time taking part orders and general questions.

Truck comes with a clean Indiana state title ready for you to take over. Drive the truck home, or I recommed having it shipped. I work with several diffrent shipping companys that I can set you up with or I can take care of everything for you. Figure around $1.50 a loaded mile for the longer trips like 1500miles+ Under that you will be looking at $1.75-2.25 a loaded mile with a 600 minium. Your location will have allot to do with the price. Truck weight is 10,500lbs its 22' overall, 9' tall and 8' wide.
