I spoke to the guys at Mohammadi Auto Parts - they picked a lot of 5 Jeeps - all MM550XD, all are year 2000 army entry, except one which is 1998

Had a chance to inspect these too - although they aren't as clean as one would've hoped, the bodies are relatively less corroded - they seem to have been scavenged for parts just before the auction.

Also - all of these are as is (no registration) - the guy at Mohammadi said he could get the registration done (for an added amount).

someone mentioned here that army disposals can be alloted to army officers who are about to retire.

Yes, i have explored that route too. after talking to Army HQ, the M&M's and Gypsies are not alloted to army officers and are only auctioned off. Why is it so...i can't say that publicly!
