    Show your 5 tons in the snow.

    Ya gotta love these in the snow... Nice drift! That's what it does even when you're trying to go straight! Side hills are a nightmare!

    Air dryer freeze up and other problems

    Yep...an old saying to remember operating switches in right order was: UP-UP DOWN-DOWN This meant that to start truck, turn on upper switch first then lower To stop truck, turn off lower switch first then upper worked well when new GI's had to recite before switch movement...

    Ditto on the salt fear and it's not just up North...we got 10 inches of snow and the temp hovered around 5 degrees... I took the truck out driving to see if anyone needed help and the next day my truck looked like a frosted mini wheat with the salt spray on it...they are using that salt liquid...

    Buying a M939 at auction: What to look for and to be prepared to fix

    See post #24...He asked about getting the truck on the trailer and to the storage facility...that was what this recommendation was for...when he gets to AK he can do the Alt mod and load up all 4 batteries...

    Buying a M939 at auction: What to look for and to be prepared to fix

    Just take 2 good batteries with you, take out the 4 old batteries, hook up the two good batteries and drive away. As long as the alt sees the correct voltage that the two good batts will provide, it won't be working overtime to charge 4 dead batteries...don't take the chance on the condition of...

    Buying a M939 at auction: What to look for and to be prepared to fix

    Unless you will be using the truck for commercial you won't need a CDL, but Alaska may be different... Unknown truck from Iron Planet vs Bulletproof proven truck from wreckerman893...no decision there...you said you'd send the truck somewhere to get rebuilt before you shipped/drove it to...

    Buying a M939 at auction: What to look for and to be prepared to fix

    M923 receiver/hitch assembly

    Mainly talking about Derick's bracket, but inside the rear of my frame is full of the 2 rams and the pivot for the bed...and the rear does not have the bumpers that a M923 has...it can be done, it would just require different mounting/engineering.

    M923 receiver/hitch assembly

    I was interested to see it installed vs the other store bought one's ...Since my truck is a dump, it's not an option for me, I'd have to fab one that attaches to the rear of the frame somehow...
