    Electronics Sho, Trailer Mounted AN/MPM-46B of Nike Hercules Equipment Trailer

    I had a commercial driver that stopped by the shop to drop off a lift and he said his family had several old trucks and trailers with these rims. He said it IS NOT a split rim but rather a safety bead that you can remove with a screw driver. Still leaves me to find 9.0-16 highway tires for the...

    We have a couple of LMTVs with trailers that we are planning to travel in. I am pretty sure Mik will be going, but we would always be willing to bring stuff back for him.

    United States of Freight ++++

    Joey helped me find a carrier that would go to California & pick up to 2 FMTV cabs from Sierra Army Depot. It would have taken me 4 days out and back, wear & tear in my dually and hotel/fuel etc. for about $500 it would have cost me to do it myself, Joey worked with my budget and found a...

    FLU419 SEE, how much did you buy yours for? and some other questions

    If you are buying an FLU419 for commercial purposes or for a business, DON't. If you are buying it for fun, as a collector, to play with on your property or just because, then pay what it is worth to you. The guys transporting mine, moved it in the middle of the night from one trailer to...

    A1 Cab -> A0 Chassis Swap

    Impressive work. Thanks for working out the kinks before I do the same thing! [thumbzup] The number of LMTV owners in Texas seems to be growing. A friend & I are currently doing S280 build-outs at my shop in Jourdanton, TX. I think collectively we have five different S280 variant boxes that we...

    A1 Cab -> A0 Chassis Swap

    After reading Scott's 50% nightmare, I filed a claim & tried to stop the purchase. Aaron assured me ( IN WRITING) that the two cabs I bought were M1157 as shown in the pictures. HMMMM??? It could be Pandora's "Crates" when the two cabs arrive and I will post the results. I'm not sure if it is...

    M1009 towing M101A2 trailer

    It took me about two minutes to do a search on the walmart website to find two or three 235 85R 16 tire and rim combos that are the 8 lug 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern. I refer to Walmart because whether I am on the East Coast West Coast North or South, Walmart is a universal source of emergency items...
