    LED Replacement HMMWV Headlight Bucket Fit

    I got a set of Truck Lite LED headlights, got them installed but the 3 nuts on the back barely thread on. No room for a washer even. Is there something I'm missing? The old buckets had plenty of thread.

    What does this antenna mount fit?

    I'm pretty sure it goes on a humvee but I haven't seen one like it anywhere.

    Winch on sale today.

    Would this be a good one to put on a cucv? Looks like the one they put on humvees, I think it's a 24v.

    Will I fit in a FV433 Abbot?

    I'm thinking about buying the drive a tank groupon but I'm not sure if I'll fit in their tank. I'm 6'3" and fat. I've been in an m113 and fit in a porshe 911. The only British armor I've seen was a ferret and I think I could drive that. You guys think I'll he able to squeeze in? Just...

    Behr paint codes up to date?

    I am at Home Depot after reading all about the Behr paint jobs and I showed the paint lady my code and she asked how old it was. I said I thought maybe a year. She said their colorants have changed and are stronger and it would be easier to color match. Does anybody know if this code is...

Worn out tires didn't help but it was still fun to watch. The deuce is my dad's and had no trouble and was...

    Replacement transmission problem

    So I replaced my TH400 with a cucv TH400 and it went well. Last night I drove it around about 5 miles and it shifted great through all gears smoothly and did not slip at all. It sat over night and now it slips in the forward gears. In drive, I can't feel it engage but I can in 2 and 1 but it...

    Rear bucket seats

    Has anyone put bucket seats in the rear of a m1009? Or any blazer? I haven't found one yet even on a civilian k5. Is there a good reason why nobody has done it? If you have thought about it, how would you do it? I have 2 sets of m1009 seats and free time.

    Transmission swap advice th400 to th400

    I am replacing my th400 that was rebuilt a year ago with an original out of a cucv with supposedly under 30,000 miles. Should I use the newer torque convertor or the original? Should I change the filter in the old one? I never really liked how the rebuilt one shifted, it always revved...

    Jack nut removal

    I found another antenna mount that I forgot I had the other day and decided to put it on. I thought I would share my method of removing the jack nuts that hold it on. The first time I did it I cut it off but this time I got them out and reused them. 1. Break it loose with an impact wrench. 2...

    U Joint Question

    Where the rear driveshaft ujoint straps on to the axle, is there supposed to be a tab or groove that keeps the caps from sliding? Mine keeps sliding out, but the strap bolts stay tight. The front has a tab but nothing on the back. Is that normal? On a m1009.

    To Rebuild or not to Rebuild TH400

    The Transmission shop says my m1009's TH400 needs rebuilt. I've been doing some research and I think I might be able to do this over my thanksgiving break. AAMCO wants $1400 to do it. I always thought I wanted a 700r4, but I am wondering if my tranny was sucking causing me to get consistent...

The...
