    MRAP Lighting on M925A2

    Since the cable from the power source (battery) connects to the circuit breaker box, power is there as is the solenoid that needs to be energized for the system to work. With the addition of a switch and some minor wiring, the solenoid can be energized with the flip of the switch. As shown in...

    Post pictures of mrap 360 lights on 5 tons or deuces

    I have a new in the box light kit that I would sell for $850 if anyone is interested. Concerning the Duster, I had a 1970 Duster 340 4 speed back in 1976. Once the kids left home, I purchased a 72 slant 6 Duster. Although it took me several years and lots of labor and money, the end result was...

    M880 "Ring Gear"?

    The ring gear diameter for the front Dana 44 axle is 8.50 inches. The ring gear diameter for the rear Dana 60 axle is 9.75 inches. The reason they ask is that some models had the Dana 60 front axle. All M880 trucks have the Dana 44 front axle.

    77 M880 Won't Stay Running When Warmed up Under Load

    MRAP bumpers....who's using one?

    After modifying and installing the MRAP bumper, I obtained a MRAP light kit. I initially installed the light bar on top of the winch but then acquired a level wind for the winch. Because of that, I moved the light bar to the top of the bumper and bent some tubing for protection.

    No gas

    I have several M880's and a M886. Don't be surprised if you find that the pickup has rotted off and laying at the bottom of the tank. Should you discover a source for a replacement, let me know as I have yet to locate one.
