Billings Army Navy Surplus has equipped many safaris over the years. Our good friend Rob Cline has been to Africa many times in the past. In September 2012, Rob invited Neal LaFever for a once in a lifetime trip to Africa to be his photographer.

Danner boots have always been a staple on safaris so we supplied Neal with a pair of Danner Melees. These boots are immediately comfortable — no breaking in necessary. Their sure footing makes them ideal for the rugged terrain of Africa. In fact, that's why many of our armed forces rely on this boot.

Well, we did it! After 31 years at the same location, we took a huge leap forward and undertook the monumental task of not only purchasing, but also moving into a new and larger facility that boasts 7,500 square feet of show room space. While moving is never fun, especially with the large and diverse inventory of about 10,000 different items we carry, we’re pleased that not only is the new store larger, it’s directly across the street from our original location. In fact, we shuttered the doors at the original site on February 10th at 11:59 AM, only to re-open them one minute later — 12:00 noon, at our new location, 10 N. 29th Street, Billings, Montana 59101.

This original Ford scripted 1942 GPW Jeep was restored by Steve Fogle, a longtime friend and customer. It has 5 combat wheels, a rifle rack on the windshield, summer top, and lots of extras. It still has the original motor and runs well.

Steve is an avid World War II reenactor and has taken great care in the restoration of this vehicle. He’s ready to shift gears and sell this beautiful Jeep. Contact us if you have any interest…

Here’s my pride and joy — a 1964 Land Rover 109 truck. Very few were made of this model. My wife’s grandfather bought it for her mother in the late 60s. It was their cabin truck at their place in the mountains outside of Denver.

It made it to Billings, Montana 20 years ago and I have been driving it almost daily in the summers since. It started looking really worn out so I had it completely redone in October 2010 — all except the motor which only has 44,000 original miles. I took it to Pat Bentz at Owens Truck and Trailer here in Billings. He and his subs took incredible care with it and replaced the glass, top, interior, paint, clutch and a few other mechanical issues.

Jane Howell, retiring director of the MSUB Library, thought a red British phone booth was “an interesting way to remember the funny English lady.” So, she purchased the authentic phone booth from Billings Army Navy Surplus and had it restored. Then she donated it to the Montana State University Library in Billings, Montana in remembrance of her 4 decades of service there. The Billings Gazette has the full story…
