    Greetings all! I apologize for not being more active in the community. Unfortunately I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had the time to devote to socializing. My name is Dietrich and I am an Iraq War veteran twice over (2003-2004 and 2008) with a brief six month stint at the American embassy in Amman, Jordan (2005). I became a veteran while assigned to the 304th Civil Affairs Bn, USACAPOC (United States Army Civil Affairs Psychological Operations Command). We weren’t trans nor supply, but we ALWAYS ran convoys into the cities, villages, and desert. After the invasion we experienced a rise with the insurgency that forced us to armor our soft shell Humvee’s with scrap metal we scavenged. We used to refer to this as “Mad Max” or “Ghetto Armor” (no offense to those who reside or are from a ghetto). I’m here because I want to buid my own gun truck and would like to seek the advice from the experts and enthusiast community. I’m currently trolling the local craigslist posts for a deuce or a half’s and 5T troop carrier to convert. Well, that was a long-winded “hello”, but I figured I’d intoduce myself while checking in. I look forward to participating and learning the forum. Cheers!

    Welcome Dietrich. You can go to our links above and find Steel Soldiers. There are people on the site who have built trucks. the Camo Crew in Ga.,Edd and the jersey Crew, Dan Rhame who bought one and remodeled it,Randy Recht/Web Madison from the Wildthing, Sammy Seay who built the ACE of Spades, Logan Werth, and many more that I missed.I expect they will all tell you they get 5 or 6 MPG and kinda expensive to build.Not sure where you live, but there will be several guntrucks at our Reunion in Columbus and the Untouchable will be in Branson, Mo. The Wildthing will be putting on an event, Angola, In, 4 July and in Kokomo, In the 3rd weekend in Sept.


      Thank you, John. I currently reside in Upstate New York in the vicinity of West Point. Gun trucks were part of our daily lives when we were in Iraq and are near and dear to my heart. When I became nostalgic and decided to research them, I was amazed how similar our experiences were to yours (Vietnam Veterans). I would also like to share a few pictures of the early armored vehicles we created as soon as I can locate and organize all of them. It’s only been ten years. (Haha)

    Don’t know where to post this but I was looking at ebay and found a Zippo lighter that belonged to someone on “The Red Baron” from 70-71. The ebay posting is…
