    Reverse Light Activation Option for the Deuce

    Hi, I wanted to share with you all an option that I came up with to activate reverse lights in the Deuce. These can be wired to activate like any vehicle on the road. I used a Single Pole / Double Throw switch (on,off,on switch) to power the activation of a mechanical limiting (proximity)...

    12 volt inverter to 24v modification?

    I was given a HD 12v inverter to 120v from work and wanted to use it in my deuce. I guess I could theoretically run the 12v from my 24v to 12v converter to power it but this is starting to sound like stretching the converter capabilities. My question, without abandoning the inverter and buying...

    fuel return line noise

    I've searched around and couldn't find anything on this. With the LDT running the fuel return line makes a pulsating vibrating noise that you can hear if you stand near the tank. Everything runs fine, does this noise seem normal, does anyone else have this?

    What is this for?

    I wanted to start a thread for deuce owners to be able to understand their trucks better by asking what certain odds and ends are for. Maybe this could be a place to help newb's and experienced owners alike ask the seemingly dumb or quick questions. Does anyone know what these two holes in...

    Steering Upgrade?

    I just came accross this on ebay and the seller states it fits: M818 M54 5 ton M51 M52 and others. Does this look like something that could be modified to fit maybe outside the frame of the deuce and also using a U-joint type shaft?

    Generator Electricity

    I have a question thats been bugging me, but may sound so dumb that I can't wait to see the response. Whether you are operating a car, deuce, boat, or tractor everyone know that you never disconnect any battery cable with the engine running. This is because the electricty generated by the...

    Website Symbols question

    I was just looking at my profile which everyone has shown to the left and I am confused. What does "Rep Power: 0" and the green square mean? And what is the ranking system all about, I assume it is something to do with the amount of posts you do.
