    . Well said! Quite a few hard and fast rules apply to a big truck - and most of the time - If you wanted to get there ahead of me, you should have started sooner. Another one is old and tried and true: I may be slow, but I am ahead of you. I can say without a doubt that given the...

    . That is the way Camo is supposed to be for sure. To match the environment where it is used. There are manuals with the pattern. Army version and USMC versions...

    . It is hard to tell, but there appears 4 colors. Sometimes called MERDC which stands for the Mobility Equipment Research and Design Command. You can search the site and see a few trucks and trailers painted that way.

    . What did you say? Hunh? I can't hear you. What? Happy to hear that your trip went well. Can't wait to get the diagnosis.

    . Hoping to hear that everything will be fixed up and made right soon. The machine shop guys being able to help source parts and hydraulic lines will make you life a lot easier! I can't wait to see a picture of the truck with the crane on it!! BE SURE to check your height when it is...

    . These big trucks are a real adventure. To be completely honest, it is even fun to go outside on a cool rainy day and just sit there. I just did a quick WebSearch and found a MV Club in Colorado called the Military Vehicle Collectors of Colorado (MVCC) . You might find truck-minded folks there.

    . Need to think about supplying hydraulic fluid to the pump. You don't want to engage the PTO driving the rear pump without fluid. Lack of oil will overheat the pump vanes (burn them up!) in under a minute. Wet is good for sure! You will need something to hold (guessing) at least 10...

    . Agreed. Married is good. New question: What does your dear wife need lifted that you can't pick up and move for her? That way you can have a crane and she has a big strong man to operate it for her :cool: All in how it is presented...

    . There are folks that know more about that than I do, but with a hydraulic pump attached to the PTO that is attached to the transmission you can do a LOT of things. The pole trucks that service the power grid in your town and a hundred other of vehicles with hydraulics can really "do magic"...

    . Those books have the information that you need. Sadly, the TM's are incredibly "dry". There is nothing there that is fun to read and IMO, they aren't like having a Chilton's. Using the search function of the PDF Reader will help you find what needs to be read. And, with a little...

    . Kip, I watched the video. You could plumb in an air fitting. On the right side under the dash, that almost looks like a drain valve but I couldn't quite tell for sure. You could even follow the hose up to the air wipers and plumb in your quick connect there and have a valve that you can...

    . Looking for air... So I guess I have more questions. • There are no gladhands on the front or back of your truck? • You have air tanks? In a perfect world, the front gladhands are for applying air to your truck when being towed. One hand is to apply the brakes. The other hand is...
