    I work for the railroad. Does that count? 15 years as a locomotive engineer and 10 as a road foreman of engines. I never get tired of large Diesel engines.

    registering an M35A2 for use in CT

    Ct DMV made me write a letter to the Ct DOT commissioner (and notarized) letting them know that my 923 will never be used for commercial purposes. Seriously.

    Tire/wheel options for M105a2

    No, I'm with you. Safety is is the utmost importance. Seriously. I'll dig into the 11.00 size. Thanks for the quick reply.

    Tire/wheel options for M105a2

    While most of you folks are going with smaller wheels/tires, I am thinking of going larger. My 105a2 has the standard 9.00x20 stock tires. Is there a larger tire that will fit these stock rims? I would like to raise the height to match my 923. Can I go with say a 11.00 or a g177? How about a 385...

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    For my charger I used a slave cable end and chopped the end off an old heavy duty set of jumper cables. I use the same charger as big block uses a couple of posts above me. The supplied wires that come with the charger are perfect for the other end of the jumper cables to bite on to. I've been...

    NYC to Mass/Cape Cod

    Which route you taking? I live in CT. I was gonna take my truck on the ferry from Bridgeport to port Jeff to grab a trailer. I bought one here in CT instead. Safe trip. Careful with those state cops at the bridges in Queens ( if you go that way instead).

    Help with identifying these trucks please

    You know what they say about Detroit diesels... " if they ain't leaking; there ain't any oil in them!" Keep us posted about the pair!

    Help with identifying these trucks please

    Hi Doug! I've seen those two trucks on c-list for about a year now. I actually saw them down towards rockaway beach 2 years ago. They have been up for sale for awhile now. Not a bad price for the 2 with the trailer. I would seriously spend some time looking under the trucks for rot. I think...

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    To be honest, I kind of cheat! Everyone who has the standard hot rod, classic car, etc are so "anal". No touching!, no going inside the vehicle, etc. I always let people climb up an on the truck. Kids love going in the back to dance or jump up or down! I just tell them to be careful and not fall...

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Just won the people's choice award at Moroso's performance products "spooktacular" car show. Again, all these guys with the hot rods and classics were "triggered " about that. Lol. Didn't even blow the leaves of the truck this morning. Military trucks rule! Now 3 for 3 !

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Here’s what I did, when I first got my truck registered and road worthy, I drove it down to the police station in my town. I parked it and went inside and talked to my police chief. I told him my hobby and offered him my truck with no questions asked if they ever needed it for any situation that...

    What's your best 'that was dumb' moment involving your 5 ton?

    I forgot where I was while putting the cab top back on my 5 ton after a parade. Took a step back and fell off the truck. My left leg landed straight and I heard a " crack". I landed on my butt, laid there for a couple minutes hoping I broke my leg. I didn't. I tore my ACL and shredded my...
