    Ugh i rolled her!

    Just a follow up. I did put it back together and drove it until 2019. I would not recommend fixing it, for safety sake. The repair would have never held up in another roll over. RUSTED floor boards finally destroyed her. I got 9 winters in Iowa outta her. I did get another M-1009...

    Poll - Who has done the Doghead Relay Conversion

    I've done it to two M-1009s. The 2nd one, I forgot to do the upgrade, until stock relay stuck one day. Because of Steel Soldiers I knew what was happening right away and gave my center, lower dash a quick kick when it happened. That unstuck the relay. I went right to NAPA and got my new...

    cucv alternator rebuilding

    I own 2 M-1009s. Rebuilt two alternators...Both on the Driver's side. Both had the rectifier bridge shorted out causing the front battery to drain. On my dash.. the alternator light(#2 if I remember) would stay on along with the Low Oil Pressure light. ??? I make no claim that everything...

    Strange CUCV Gen 1 light issue

    Generator #1 is the Passenger side Alternator? Oil pressure light and Gen 1 light stay on after I turn off the engine. Pulling fuses do not make the lights go out. The left indicator light on the dash also has not worked for awhile. ( may not be related) This kills the battery. I have a...

    flat tow HMMWV

    I have a class A cdl, Drove flat bed for awhile and have flat towed M-1009 with my Suburban. 70mph.. the M-1009 follows right behind...smooth. I don't think flat towing the Humvee is a good idea, unless its just 20 miles to get it home. I'm going to use a trailer. Thanks for all the...

    New Home, awaiting EUC to clear

    I don't have a pickup, so this makes sense. I have a M101 trailer that will look great behind this. I was gonna flat tow this, but a friend has a trailer for me to use. Where the heck is Randall Minnesota? Google google google

    flat tow HMMWV

    I've flat towed my M-1009s several times, easy peasey. I've been looking for info/pictures on the connections for hooking up a towbar to a Hmmvw. Doesn't look like I can use my Home made tow bar ends on the Hmmvw. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Smoke after glowplug swap

    I just put in my New AC 60g glow plugs. I was apparently down to 3 remaining glow plugs (that worked), they were not AC 60g but I think Wellmans.. With only three glow plugs the circuitry clicks and makes noises. In the future I will use this as a sign the glow plug system needs...

    Injector pump removal / install

    Great write up, and it convinced me to let a professional do it. A local shop will charge me around $450 labor for the install. They will give me a lifetime warranty on the rebuilt one. $602 for the rebuilt injector pump, I would need to buy that either way. I am pretty sure I could do...

    Speedometer 15 MPH off

    Math? I just put on 33 inch tires.. so I'm going faster than what the speedo says (M-1009) Math hurts my head lately... Any advice for me? I'm gonna just figure out the percentage it's off then use some white out or something to label 25, 55, and 65 mph... Maybe I should remove that...
