    Rod Hall suspension

    Does it really increase travel to 13"? If so that's approaching mid travel territory. I wonder what size coilovers are on there?

    Rod Hall suspension

    Those are stupid expensive. I don't know who'd buy one. I could build a long travel F100 for the price of that kit haha

    Rod Hall suspension

    Ok gotcha, I want to get something with a different rate. I don't care about increasing travel,just want better compliance going through washboard, would like to be able to go through with some speed I stead of 5mph.

    Rod Hall suspension

    Wondering if anyone here has some detailed pics of the Rod Hall suspension setup? Measurements would also be great. I need more suspension compliance when going over washboard here in the desert. Currently the M1038 suspension is unbearable and feels like the truck is going to rattle itself to...

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    All buttoned up. TM calls for 72-82oz of R134a, I ended up using 78oz. Also used about 280cc of SP15 oil. 77 degrees at 3k feet, looking at about 35/145 on the manifold. AC blows 43*, perfect. Moral of this story, don't buy the kit with China parts. They're horrible, I knew they would be but I...

    Help, 4 man Red Dot AC capacities

    Can anyone confirm the refrigerant and oil capacity on the RedDot R-2400-0 unit for a 4 man HMMWV? The evap says 4lbs of 134a, the TM says 4.8 max of 5.2. Oil capacity on the evap says 277cc, the compressor says 270cc. I don't know if either number is for the WHOLE system. Any help is...

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    Hi, I have a professional AC setup and make my own lines using standard barrier hose with Atco beadlock fittings. I have hose running from the engine bay, into the cab through existing holes in the body, then up to the evap unit, and back to the condensor. Here's a couple pics. I wanted to...

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    Alright folks, update. Got all new parts and am getting this thing going just in time for winter. Order the proper RedDot condenser. It is several inches taller and at least 5 times thicker than the Chinese one. I made a new AC box for it and will be running the original fans that came with my...

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    Looks like the big Red Dot condensor is a serpentine flow, not a parallel flow. Wondering if the more modern parallel flow I have installed is sufficiant in comparison to the older style Red Dot?

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    I was looking at those, would need two correct? I have a 4 man truck. Also am looking at the thick 3 row? Red Dot condensor, I can build another box to put it in a re-use my current fans. I'm also wondering, if I ordered one or two more 18x26 condensors and doubled or tripled them up, if that...

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    Ya agreed, I like expirementas that end in futility, it's a good learning lesson for everyone. So pretty much I paid $800 for a Red Dot R2400 evap unit and AC hose. Everything else in the kit is garbage. The dual fans sent do work well, but I built a dedicated fan box for them, they're powerful...

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    Well the update on this project is to save your money and get a real one. Other than the Red Dot evap and fans, the rest is garbage. The fittings sent are for R12, had to switch those out for R134 beadlock fittings. The service ports on the Chinese fittings don't seat well to my Master cool...

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    Today I started working on my faux-ish GMV side rails. I will mount the condensor and fans behind the driver side rail. It'll be enclosed in a 1/2" ply fan box for max air draw from the two 24v fans. The side rails are made from my old busted troop seats, cut and welded to some USA made e-track...

    DIY, "DON'T BUY A" Cheap eB*y AC in a HMMWV

    Please read the thread. The China parts are terrible. Now that my turbo is done, I've turned my attention to the AC since driving this truck in 120* heat sucks. Bought an AC kit on eBay for $800 to my door. It included a genuine RedDot evap unit, and Chinese compressor, condensor, lines...

    Ok, here's the end. Got it together, sealed, and painted with my half can of paint I had. Not the prettiest, but F it, got a turbo HMMWV.

    Boredom project, LB7 dirtymax turbo on a 6.2

    Well I got the top and front insulation in and encapsulated, but in the theme of this project I ran out of ceramic insulation. I'll order more Friday when I get my Amazon points (got like $100 coming). For now I tossed the cover on and took it for a spin. It is BY FAR quieter than the stock...

    Boredom project, LB7 dirtymax turbo on a 6.2

    Started the doghouse today. Got the inner siding in and sealed down with high temp metal bonding silicone. I don't want the ceramic fibers getting out. I'll let it dry overnight then sandwich in the ceramic insulation tomorrow.
