    TVI FIRST RESPONSE SHELTER

    So I bid on and won a tent at auction labeled only as "extendable modular tent" on govplanet last week. Turns out it's not likely to be military surplus, but thought I'd share it here anyway. Thought from the size it might be a small DRASH or Base-X but nope, neither of those. Turns out to be...

    Front differential/brake issues fixed

    So as some of you know, I had the bolt holding the brake caliper bracket back out of the differential and come into contact with the ends of the halfshaft bolts sticking through the rotor. Since I was down there anyway, I decided to take care of the oil leak I saw on that side of the...

    M1123 rear springs question...

    So everyone complains about how stiff these springs are, and with an empty truck I'll agree they are pretty stiff. I'm sort of having the opposite issue right now, my rear end is sagging compared to the front due to the amount of weight I have in it. With the BEOD (Body, Explosive Ordnance...

    Belt info on my M1123 with 6.5l serial number below 196901

    So just putting this information out there in case anyone else needs it. My truck is an M1123 with the 6.5 engine and serpentine belt setup. It has the Sanden compressor for the RedDot aircon in it. That part is probably important, as the belt length does not match what the manual says it...

    Quick 200 amp regulator question.

    So I have a keyed battery disconnect. Sometimes when I start the HMMWV (m1123) the generator shows like it's about to start charging, it goes slightly into the green between glow plug pulses, but then drops back to yellow and stays there. If I turn off the engine, tap on the regulator a little...

    Trailer Brake Controller Install (Redarc)

    A couple days back I installed the Federal Military Parts class 3 heavy duty 2" receiver I picked up from another member here who decided to go a different route. Doesn't work with airlift bumper, which is fine with me, as I don't have one. Got it installed and was waiting on the other parts...

    Questions about M720 and brakes

    So I'm currently buying an M720 shelter dolly. I've been reading up, and can't find anywhere that anyone that has done an electric brake conversion with one of these. I do not have an air brake capable vehicle to tow it with, so looking at what are my possible options. it looks like there are...

    AM General parts website

    So just found out last night when searching for parts that AM General has their own parts website up and running. I placed my order, and this morning I received an email from them asking how I found out about their website as they haven't advertised it yet, and if I was part of a government...

    Rear fender condenser questions

    So I just got in a fender mounted A/C condenser to install in the left rear fender. There are a couple things that I need some assistance with. Does anyone know the dimensions for the bracket to hold up the rear of the condenser? I suppose I can just do some measurements of the condenser...

    BEOD Mounting

    So I just picked up a BEOD (Body, Explosive Ordnance Disposal) and haven't been able to find any documentation on how it's supposed to get mounted into the truck. Does anyone have any type of documentation for install or even just general documentation on these? I didn't see any in the TMs...

    Hole in fuel tank

    So quick search didn't turn up this exact thing I found on my truck. I knew I had a fuel leak from the top of my tank, directly above the fuel fill inlet. Finally got around to dropping the tank today to take a look at it. Pretty obviously a drilled hole. No holes in the bed of the truck...

    It was one of those days...

    ...where everything seems to go just right. So today was a pretty good day. Backstory: I bought a truck at the start of April, picked it up at the end of May. M1123 with a serial number from 2000. Then waited 2 months, SF-97 never came. Auction listing said "Sells with clean SF-97" and...

    Nordicair 3 ton heat element wiring question.

    So here is the question before I just start opening things up and poking around, I haven't physically looked at the heater element wiring, so not sure if this is even a valid idea or not, wanted to bounce it off people with more experience with these than I have. The heat elements in this are 3...

    Another M116A2 owner here

    So last week went and picked up my first military trailer. I have an MEP-802A sitting around that's kind of a pain to move, so when a trailer for it showed up for sale in my facebook feed I jumped on it. Went and picked up the trailer, decided I'd rather not tow it with it being unknown...

    Not current, but just remembered a past experience...

    So about 18 years ago I was working as a small engine mechanic at a mom and pop shop. Some guy brought in a 5kw air cooled Army diesel generator that he bought and wouldn't start. One of the guys at the shop was a diesel locomotive mechanic, he was the first to take a look at it. He...

    Coolant Surge Tank, is this genuine or aftermarket?

    So ordered a coolant surge tank from what seems like it would be a reliable source, not going to name them as not sure yet if it's legit or what's going on or if it's a fluke that they'll take care of, just wanted to ask here for those that have seen more of these than me if the replacement tank...
