    Odd M1028 bed

    Well, the drain tube sounds interesting. Did GM use such a critter on civy trucks? I converted my truck. It has all 1984 parts but I've never heard of that drain tube. Off to my parts illustration catalog to see.

    Difference between hydro and vacuum brake pedal assembly?

    That is true. Unless you're going to some high performance Borg and Beck style clutch, the factory one ton clutch is pretty easy. I've got bad knees and I manage fine. Your mileage may vary.

    Trailer options? Will a M1008 on 37's tow a gooseneck.?

    Might I add that the administrator dude failed to mention that his CUCV with 37s has a turbo from a 6.5 fitted to it. Question is, can it? Likely, with enough time and perseverance. Should it, likely not.

    Max tire size for stock M1008

    Ran 255/85R16 BFGs on my former M1010. Used 7" wide Ford rims and it worked great. 33x10.50x16 is another option.

    Difference between hydro and vacuum brake pedal assembly?

    Why do you require hydraulic clutch? If it's because that's what you heard was best, you may need to revisit that. The Porkchop physician was spot on with the difference in brake pedals. The hydroboost pedal also sports a small return spring. Converting mechanical to hydro clutch requires much...

    Steel vs Aluminum tubing (Camper frame)

    I'm probably out of my league but have you considered hat channel instead of box?

    Milwaukee Fuel inpacts are tough to beat.

    M1009 steel brake line diameter/size

    I've known about the pre-bent lines, just never looked into them. I just checked out the part number you listed and came up questioning it. It surely does list it's application as K-30. Does it come with a few pieces of extra line? K30 was available in 131.5, 135.5, 159.5 and 164.5 wheelbases. I...

    New member waiting on delivery of M1008

    I have evolved from 5 tons and deuces to multiple CUCVs and now down to one. They are a great vehicle as long as you accept their limitations.

    Rest In Peace, James "Neil" MacNeill Hendrix

    Rest in peace brother Neil. You will be missed. Shout out to Ron and Tigger for us.

    M1028A2 acquisition

    Looks great. The other mod to consider is bypassing the GP resistor and running the glow plugs from a 12V source. Keeps the cascading effect from destroying your remaining glow plugs if one fails.

    Official 2019 Steel Soldiers Georgia Rally (19SSGR) - Georgia Military Vehicle Rally

    I hated to bug out Saturday but registration wasn't happening and I was woefully unprepared for the soaking rain and standing water. About the rally, it was great to see all my friends, make a bunch of new ones and see those who missed the last few years. Remember, Clinto and all those that...

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    I'm not quite sure. It wasn't catastrophic at all. Just lost the ability to move. It had been having trouble staying in a few gears anyway. I suppose it could be a transfer case too but it's fresh. Either way I have an NV4500 and Dodge 208 in the garage. I'll be working towards installing them...

    I should be in by noon tomorrow if I can decide on something to drive. Hope to convoy with Microjeep.

    Cucv roof rusted through

    This would be a great change. If I had a blazer, this would be high on the list. Oh, and a cage too.
