    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Finally put my 16.00s on. Got one painted and decided I’ve had enough of the sanding so I’m gonna get the rest sandblasted Thursday. It rides and looks way better. Cruises at 60 in 12th gear at about 1700 rpm.

    Reversing with the transfer case in low range

    There was a guy on Facebook the other day that blew his transfer case apart in reverse, high, not in 6x6. He said it was wheel hopping but they don’t necessarily have to be in low 6x6.

    Those Military Guys Unlimited purchasing question?

    I would want to know what brand those gauges are. They may be junk.

    Anyone regret adding or removing muffler after a turbo?

    I have one of my down pipe. After that it’s half flex and half straight pipe then the 90 for the stack. A section of flex pipe somewhere is necessary.

    Cab install, no crane/lift

    I used my tractor to get my 5 ton cab off/on. I know a deuce cab is smaller but I can’t see it being lifted without some sort of machinery.

    Anyone regret adding or removing muffler after a turbo?

    I put a turbo on my m923 with 5” exhaust and 6” stack. If I was driving it to work every day I’d put a muffler on it. But for the way I use it, it’s perfect and sounds great. I pulled the muffler off before I had a turbo and put it back on after one drive. That was absolutely obnoxious.

    Cageing air brakes

    No. One chamber at each rear wheel. You’ll notice they’re larger than the others. That’s because they have a spring in them. You can google “caging air brakes” and learn all you want to.

    Ah I read that wrong.

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    In that link you posted it says the bill was passed. I don’t know much about that stuff but if it was passed why isn’t it done? I couldn’t find anything on google about it.

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Well that’s ridiculous. Cops are pretty lenient in my area so I’m just gonna hope for the best. Nashville is like a different world compared to where I am. As far as displaying the plate, I’d prefer to not get stopped so they can check and then have that lead to other questions that might...

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Thanks! If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing. Do you have a link to that info? I thought I studied the rules pretty thoroughly before I got the antique tag and never saw anything about weight...

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Finished putting light bars on today. I should be able to see pretty good now.

    What model is this?

    It doesn’t have air brakes. It just uses an “air pressure booster” as opposed to vacuum or, like your dodge, hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. If you lose air pressure you still have brakes, but no assist so very weak brakes. If it will move on it’s own, I’d drive it at 5-10 mph...

    What model is this?

    14 miles? If it moves I'd definitely try to drive it. Or flat tow it behind a 3/4 or 1 ton truck. Just go slow but there's no way I'd pay $1000 to move it 14 miles.

    What grease for wheel bearings?

    A lot of military truck people are wild. They’re wheel bearings. Just like 99% of parts on these trucks, they’re not some top secret military only magic. Any half decent wheel bearing grease will be fine. I think I used carquest brand in mine.

    Two and a half tons and lifts

    I don’t either. That picture was at the shop I used to work at. I plan to have a shop built in the next year or two. I’ve looked at 30k pound lifts and they’re 15-20. I’d like to be able to pick my 5 ton up. Smaller lifts can be had for a lot less.

    Two and a half tons and lifts

    It’s 1000 times easier to work standing up than it is rolling around on the ground. And typically you’ll have rolling jacks on a 4 post lift for when you need the tires off the ground. I don’t know of any situation where you’d “need” a lift but you only need to use one once to understand why...

    Two and a half tons and lifts

    4 post is the way to go.

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Well this was a massive amount of work. I’m impressed with the rapco spray paint though. Probably the easiest I’ve ever used. Ignore the wires hanging down. Still need to hook those up.

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    I guess I should have said more. Yes it’s under the passenger seat. I’m working on putting front and rear light bars on so I figured I’d go ahead and wire up 6 relays/switches to run anything I decide to add later.
