    Stripping the box off of an M1010

    If anyone has done this, how hard was it to repair the back of the cab? I know cucvrus has done a few. Mine isn't selling so thinking of stripping off the body.

    NP208 Transfer Case knowledge base

    Greetings folks, in my quest for an NV4500, I now have a Dodge NP208. It should bolt to the back of the NV but there's a problem. It not only has the 6 bolts, it has a registering dowel too. The trans isn't drilled for that. None of my GM 208 transfer cases have that nor does the Dodge NP241...

    Tool Review, Genius GB40 booster

    Greetings folks. I have no affiliation with this company but really like this product. The GB 40 is a compact jump box. There are several reviews of these on YouTube but I wanted to add the MV angle. Here at the house, we have 3. Wife, myself and my one driving son. I was recently greeted...

    M880 New Process 203 Transfer Cases

    Does anyone have a stash of these anywhere? They used to be plentiful and cheap. Not seen any in a while. While it's not a parts wanted thread, I need to make sure one is available before I move with a tranny purchase.

    Sealant/ Gasket maker.

    Folks, I'm working on a 14 bolt axle. In the past I've used Ultra copper on the axle shafts. My foggy memory recalls a better product used on Steel Soldiers for this application and oil pans and such. I can't recall the name to do a search. Anyone have any idea or suggestions? The stuff that...

    Scepter Fuel Nozzle Failure

    Greetings folks. Has anyone else had any issues with the Scepter style offuel spout for the jerry cans? I first noticed a reduced rate of discharge. No one wants to hold up a full can for any longer than necessary. In my experience, you can dump a can in a minute with a proper functioning...

    Chevy 4x4 Dump (K30) Recovered

    I am in search of a K30 chassis cab with either a contractors (mason) dump or flatbed dump. Would like something I can use all these CUCV parts on. Not really interested in a 6.2 or a stick but would consider one. Attached is something along the lines of my needs. I also have an M1010 for...

    M1010 Dually

    Greetings folks! I am trying to find a thread where someone posted that they have a CUCV ambulance and it had a cab and chassis dually rear axle. I have been searching the site and google for some time now and I can't find it. I thought I saved the pic but sure can't find it now. Anyone...

    Contact Truck Exterior Work Lights. (M1031)

    Folks, I'm looking for ideas on lighting the contact truck up. I currently have some inexpensive side mount LEDs on the box but looking to expand. Right now I have a 24" Ibis Tek HID bar that I'm planning to use along with a pair of Whelen Pioneer floods. I still have route clearance lights...

    CUCU style starting system on 12V truck.

    Weighing some options here on a truck. I am considering getting a crew cab and would like to go to 24V starting. On a stock CUCV, there is that pesky relay under the dash. As most know, the truck uses 12V to energize a relay (doghead) that then connects and provides 24V. Is there any good...

    Folks, anyone coming through this area with space for a SnapOn roll cab? I will only buy it if I can arrange a ride.

    Off Road Design Engine Crossmember

    I am looking for any and all feedback on this crossmember and its use on any CUCV. I'm on the verge of pulling an oil pan and doing this crossmember may ease my time on my back.

    Oil Pressure has left the building.

    Good or bad luck, I'm not certain. The other day I started the SECMish CUCV to be treated to a big red idiot light telling the idiot that there is an oil pressure problem. Today I finally switched out the sender but still had a warning light. Hooked up a gauge and confirmed the worse. Odd that...

    Ibis Tek vs Route Clearance Lights

    Greetings folks. I have one of the smaller Ibis Tek HID light bar. With the price coming down on route clearance lights I'm wondering which one would be best/brightest. I know the Ibis Tek has the IR LED but that's not as important as the regular lights.

    CUCV Instrument Cluster Questions

    Well, finally underway with the trans swap on my SECM. When I pulled the cluster out I was greeted with a destroyed printed circuit. New one is being shipped in. The question is can I start this sucker up to move it across the yard? Thanks

    M116A3 axle trade?

    So, I have this trailer made of M101A1 and M116A3 parts I've been using to move stuff to GA. Long story short, it has a custom axle that has a 6 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern to use M1009 rims. It does not have any brakes whatsoever. I am looking to see if anyone on the east coast might want to swap an...

    Had one on the Stretcher Today.

    Doing a friend a favor. The 4L80E in this CUCV went away. Delivered it to a family member of the owner about 75 miles down the road. Bolts had no issue dragging down the turnpike.
