    Brake Lights

    I had the same issue. It was cured with a new brake light switch. I opened up the original switch and the point of contact had years of wear and burnt metal from arcing across the break in contact. Tried cleaning it and reassembled it but no better. You couldnt get a consistent pedal travel...

    A2 fuel tank question

    I replace my original A0 tank with an A2. It fit just fine. My three speed truck still had the original NP218 Transfer case, but that shouldnt be an issue as the A2s usually have the 242 anyhow. FYI you dont reuse the 2 metal baffles out of the A0 tank. That plastic basket in the bottom of the...

    Brush Guard Bracket

    I think that's known as an "A2" style brush guard. You may need to have that winch plate style bumper to fit it on. Sorry, its the only pic I have of those mounts.

    What's stuck in my Brake Rotor

    Ive seen differing spring steel clips and pins inserted in rotor slots like that. I have heard that certain styles are to balance out some annoying vibration in that rotational mass. Ive heard that other styles are to attenuate squealing/harmonic vibrations

    Hmmwv is so unique. But I wonder why a few things

    Lots of crazy conjecture in this thread. The HMMWV was designed to replace the MUTT, and the CUCV. The MUTT was great offroad, but couldn't carry much and had a dangerous rollover propensity. In order to carry the 1 1/4 ton load of the CUCV it would have had to have a really high center of...

    Ive used rapco for years. The carc substitute green and brown seem to be a perfect match. The black, though, is not flat enough in my opinion. I found that rustoleum camo ultra flat black is perfect for the black areas

    Authentic Side Mirrors

    Yeah, it seems like one style is older and discontinued in favor of the newer style direct replacement as they are for the same application. I looked at Kascar's only has pics of rounded corners. It does list one tan one as "new style" but shows same stock photo. I am not sure which...
