    FMTV Pre-Production Prototypes

    I had a chance 5 0r 6 years ago to get a hybrid LMTV from a scrapper. I don’t remember exactly why I didn’t but I’m glad some one manage to save one. Look forward to seeing what you do with it.

    What did you do to your trailer today.

    These trailers are great! I've pulled mine well over 20,000 miles with the stock tires on it. I bought more just to have as spares. You'll be happy with it years to come, it looks good.

    Covered M1102

    I thought I'd resurrect an old thread for a testimony of these tough little trailers. Four years after building my top for my M-1102 I have racked up over 25,000 miles on it. It's been throughout WV and across Ky, Tn, Ar, Tx, Oh, Pa and Md. These things pull like a dream, loaded or empty (even...

    M1070 info requested. yes< I have searched... any help is appreciated

    The M-1070 is and awesome truck. It is not "all wheel drive" it is 6x8 with selectable 8x8. It is heavy, about 41,000lbs. The traction is not great without weight on the rear. The Detroit likes high revving and therefore loves the fuel, mine averaged about 1.2-1.8 mpg in the hills of WV. 47 mph...

    roof mounted cab AC

    its been in for three years. It's still working fine and the RV roof top units are only about $550. The inverter is a 12 volt, 3000 watt Xantrex. They cut the turret cover to install it, I tried to get them to make a new plate instead so the turret cover could be saved.

    roof mounted cab AC

    I put an inverter in for a client of mine that installed a Coleman unit on theirs. It will run you out of the cab even without insulating the cab any. I'll see if I can find some pictures.

    M1102 Trailer Body Panels

    I've talked to Mr. Schutt before, nice guy, Steve I think was his name. Was helpful on a question on mine. I don't remember what it was. Give them a call and see. The M1102 is a great trailer. I made a top for mine and have put over 20,000 miles on it.

    M1070 HET - Suitable for Toter-Home Conversion?

    The mighty HET. I loved driving mine (just sold it after a few years). Mileage wise, here in the hills of WV is more like 1-2 mpg. The rear steer if aligned correctly has never been an issue, at first mine wasn't aligned very well. It is a big truck! Two lane roads are not your friend. Put...

    Adding Backup/360 Cameras

    In my HET I did a monitor capable of four cameras. I only installed three though. The monitor can do one, two or four pictures at a time. There was also available, a digital video recorder that took SD cards and could be locked. It was four channel capable as well. I'll try to find some pics.

    LMTV working at the mine

    I helped a large, local coal operation locate and acquire the LMTV a few years ago. 2015 I think it was. They originally wanted it as a inexpensive "parts runner" on the job. They had always bought Ford cab and chassis F-350's before and put a flat bed on them. The guys would ruin them in less...
