I would say it is a Ford FK 2000 BB or FK 3000 BB (1951-55).

Some have split windscreens:

... but perhaps I am wrong. I'll think about it, again.

You were right, Ralph, it is not a Ford.
It is a Dodge from 1946, one of the 'Job-Rated' class:

The Job-Rated slogan has been used by Dodge from 1940 to 1956 for 3 truck lines, so it can't be used as name for a single one:

(1940 brochure // 1948 one // 1955 one)

This stake is a 1939-47 T/V/W-Something, depending on its model year and its nominal payload: T-Series for the 1939 MY, V-Series for the 1940 one, and W-Series from 1941 to 1947. Something is C (˝-ton), D-15 (ľ-ton), D-20 (1-ton), F (1˝-ton), H (2-ton) or K (3-ton).

It doesn't seem to have the 1940 only small park lamps on the headlamps, but the 1941-47 cowl mounted bigger ones can't be seen either, due to the too blurry main picture. In fact, without a picture of the grille, this truck can just be identified as a (default) 1939 one, i.e. a TSomething.
Stakes were made on the 120"/3.05 m wheelbase (ľ-ton TD-15 and 1-ton TD-20), 133"/3.38 m one (1-ton TD-20), 136"/3.45 m one (1˝-ton TF and 2-ton TH) and on the 160"/4.06 m wheelbase (1˝-ton TF and 2-ton TH). I'm afraid nothing can help us in these photos, except for saying that "our" truck seems to have "a small wheelbase" :)
