    Avoid Titan 32” thumb on the FLU419

    I added a 32” Titan thumb on my FLU. That was a mistake. Unlike better designed thumbs, it will not fold out of the way without removing the brace bar. In storage, the thumb hits the center tooth and prevents the bucket from folding completely. To add insult to injury, it bent a pin on the first...

    Tires and wheels removed from Herlong, CA or shipped to Lancaster, PA

    I won 2 lots of wheels and tires at Herlong, CA last week. Total weight estimated at 2800lbs on 3 pallets. If someone is local and goes there on a regular basis, can you confirm what the process is? I am hearing that a permit to get on base must be applied for 7 days ahead of time, but the...

    European Road Trip

    So I haven't posted on here in quite some time and this post may be an example of "late is not better than never". My company sent me to Belgium for the last year. I have been living in Brugge since January and am now prepping to move back to PA. Its too late for me to ask for suggestions of...

    Feeler: Shortened heater boxes and under glovebox mounting brackets

    I am in the process of mounting my heater on the passenger side under the glovebox. Borrowing from this thread by Ridgerunner, and this post by jwentz57, I am cutting down my heater box to be about 6 inches shorter than stock. Rather than cut the original box and try to get all the cuts...

    Halftrack door Armor

    In WWII, My grandfather was a tank mechanic. After the war, he bought a surplus halftrack and used it on the farm. They removed most of the armor on it and some was cut up and welded into other equipment. However, we just found both doors intact and complete, though the hinges are rusty. What is...

    Start of my crane truck project

    Well, I am putting the cart in front of the horse, or the crane before the truck. This past weekend I purchased three Hiab 070 knucklebooms for eventual inclusion on an M35A2. Now I just have to haul them home (see post in transportation section) and buy a deuce. Two are Hiab 070A's, one...
