    The Bedford MJ is a militarised version of a commercial general utility truck to meet the British Army requirement. Some 50,000 Bedfords have been manufactured for military service. The MJ series trucks proved to be robust and reliable vehicles. In the British Army it was known simply as a 4-tonner. Many of these military trucks have been exported to Bangladesh, Belgium, Brunei, Denmark, Indonesia, Ireland, Kenya, Netherlands, Turkey United Arab Emirates and other countries. Production of this military truck continued until the 1989. The Bedford MJ series has a payload capacity of 4,000 kg, even though maximum load possible is over 6,000 kg. It is a true multi-purpose truck, used for all manner of military duties. The cargo area has drop-sides and tailgate. These can be removed for stowage of containers. For passenger transportation detachable seats are fitted in the center of the cargo area. Vehicle can carry 20 fully equipped troops. The canvas cover and steel poles were often removed. This military truck can also tow trailers. A forward control cab is of all steel construction. There is a hatch in the roof, used for observation. Late production trucks can be recognized by the platform over the cab. The initial production models were known as the MK, powered by a Bedford 5.4-liter multi-fuel engine, developing 98 hp. In 1981 a more powerful diesel engine, developing 103 hp, was introduced, which resulted in the MJ series. This military truck has selectable all wheel drive. Some vehicles were fitted with a 5 000 kg capacity winch. Many automotive components of the Bedford MJ series truck were used on the Saxon armored personnel carrier, which is basically an armored truck, capable of operating in forward areas.
