    Secondary Oil Pressure Gauge

    I’ve seen where some of you have installed fuel pressure gauges on the top port of the filter housing, and have figured out how to do that, but I’ve also seen photos of some secondary oil pressure gauges installed right behind the drivers side valve cover. Has anyone here done that, and can...

    Black Substance on Battery Terminals Between Frame and Tunnel

    After removing the ring terminals for the radio tray power cable from the positive and ground stud terminals between the frame and the tunnel, I don't think I'm getting a good connection anymore.

    Aluminum Champion vs OEM Radiator

    The radiator on my 1123 is full of sludge and rust. The lower tube on my truck was not stainless and had disintegrated from the inside out which was hard to tell since it was entirely covered in undercoating. Since I’m already installing new hoses, a water pump, and replacing my leaking...

    Proper Type & Quality of Under Hood Hose Clamps

    I've heard several guys talk about the proper hose clamps and constant tension clamps for under hood hoses. Several on my truck are clearly some auto parts junk and I'd like to replace with the correct style clamps when I install all new hoses. Appreciate any advice you guys may have.

    Has anyone here used CSM Army Tires? I currently have old date code Goodyear MT OZ tires on some rough to fair 12 bolt rims, that I'm not comfortable with on the highway anymore. I was originally going to convert to 17" wheels and all terrains, but the wheel and tire shortage has had made me...

    I've been pointed in every direction on tachometers for our M1123 with a NA 6.5 and now I'm just even more confused. I have the tach pod for the windshield frame, but no tach, and no wiring. I dont want a tach bad enough to spend $950 on the kits being sold online, but would like to get...

    Lizard Skin Questions

    Who here has sprayed the lizard skin sound and or temp control material inside their HMMWV cab? Currently converting our M1123 from a 2 door to 4 door and figured I might as well coat the insides instead of repainting them. For those of you who have used the lizard skin, do you then put the...

    6TL Battery Availability

    I have been searching for weeks for 6TL batteries for my new 1123 that came with some off brand batteries that are way too small. Napa, Oreilly, Autozone, Interstate, and Batteries Plus are all out of stock and can’t even order one right now. Does anyone have a lead or source for anything...

    Does anyone have advice on which rear view or surround view camera setup is best for the elements, and holds up well in the HMMWV? Rear camera would be mounted to the back of a four door hard top setup, or an airlift bumper with a rhino tire carrier. I've seen a lot of foreign made junk on...

    M1123 - Ragged armor holes on top of rear fenders

    Our new M1123 has some pretty ragged holes on the top of the rear fenders/bedsides (see pic below) that were hidden under the troop seats when we purchased it. I know, I know, shame on me for not looking, but this is our first build and learning a lot on the fly. I can deal with the MAK holes...

    M1123 differential rebuild in North Texas?

    Drove our new ‘98 M1123 home over the weekend and what had appeared to be a clean/dry rear diff, turned into an oozing mess between the passenger rotor and the diff housing by the time I made the 45 min trip home. Does anyone have a resource for someone that rebuilds or at least reseals diffs...
