    Question about wheels types....

    exhogflyer: Another option is to buy aftermarket wheels from somewhere like Boyce Equipment Co in Utah. They have two different wheel designs that fit the Deuce. They are pricey but you don't have to buy any adapter plates or the hardware to mount the adapter plates. Long's Wheel in Florida also...

    Deuce Hood Lift Kit Availability

    SCM35A2: I tried to contact BBQROD again today. His mailbox is still showing as full. He never responded to efforts to contact him at the restaurant. He has not been on SS for a year. Maybe one of the SS folks from Georgia would be willing to stop in and see him. The food at the restaurant seems...

    Deuce Hood Lift Kit Availability

    BBQROD posted a video back in 2014 of the lift kit installed and operating on a Deuce. The two gas struts look like they make raising the hood a 5 sec. task instead of climbing on the fender to raise the hood. All you have to do is release the hood latch and the hood goes up. There was a lanyard...

    Deuce Hood Lift Kit Availability

    I was wondering if anyone still makes the kits with the struts for easily raising the Deuce hood. I know that BBQROD was making and selling them back in 2014. It appears that he hasn't posted them for sale since then. I've tried to PM him and received an error message that his mailbox is full...

    Off-road Magazine Article about M109 camper

    It seems like the on-line version of the story is pretty much verbatim of what is in the print article. The rest of the magazine has some good articles but they are not necessarily MV related. greg

    Off-road Magazine Article about M109 camper

    searls84: It would be very handy to have a next door neighbor with his skill set! I envy the guys on SS that have that level of expertise and craftsmanship. Some like Zout seem to be able to do the mechanical, the fabrication, and the carpentry. The original magazine article has a good picture...
