    Good Price?

    I agree with Lavarock. The price is fair--especially if it has a top.

    pimp my ride (er trailer?)

    Tongue weight really isn't a problem. The duece box is really light sheet metal. Even with several chains in the box the trailer tows nice and straight--even empty.

    M116A3 Flat to Box modification

    Kenny, The wheeled one gets it in and out of the garage and I use the stock one to make sure it doesn't fall on the animals. It's there...might as well use it. I wanted to weld the wheel to stock jack, but it's damaged and moves no more! Hope things are going well for you. You still have...

    M116A3 Flat to Box modification

    Modified my M116A3 to make it more useful behing the F250. Powerwashed it, bedlined it, painted it black, put sides on it, changed the tires and wheels to civy 17 inches load range E, put an old duece tool box on the frame rails and made a tailgate. Cheapy marker lights make a nice accent. I...

    M1102 behind a pickup

    Could someone post a photo of an M1102 behind a civy pickup truck? I am contemplating buying one of these trailers and want to see if it's a practical trailer for a 3/4 ton truck. These are shorter right? Do they tow well? Last question. Are these beginning to be released to the public in...

    OMG not a nother bobber.

    James, what abot hacking the forward part of another 116 to fill in that gap up front? Looks a little funky reversed like that. Just my opinion.

    Welding with ear protection?

    Same thing happened to me too. ER doc told me that it's a very common injury. I always wear earplugs now. Doh!

    Gainesville Fl

    Shannon, Gainesville is a common place for retirees. I am not too familiar with offroading areas, but I'm sure they are few and far between here--especially compared with California. I'd like to see that C30 of yours. Steve

    Pad mount MEP-003

    At my AO, the city has imposed an ordnance on decibel level for fixed-mounted gensets. Good thing is, mobile genset units are not part of the law. I keep mine on a trailer to avoid the noise level limitation. You may want to check your local laws before mounting it.

    M1008 tranny prob--rebuilds cheap?

    Got a lead on an M1008. Tranny is blown though. Would this be something I can have rebuilt by a shop reasonably or perhaps buy a rebuilt one from a parts store? I'm new to the CUCV. Just trying to figure out how much it would cost to be replaced.

    UNIMOG pic thread

    Nice pics. How stable are these vehicles? They look like they would be quite easy to roll. I've never driven one, but hear they are unmatched off-road.
