    cHucv Soup: The animal to be

    I apologize for my absence to all of my intrepid readers. With the move and so many other projects I have not taken the time to update the thread as I might like. Perhaps taking up surf fishing has also had a hand in that. I will try and add some content as time allows. At 10k miles I have...

    New Production 6.2L/700R4 TV Brackets (Interested?)

    I dropped it off for prototype, but after 2 months they had not uploaded it. I had to finish the build so I took it back. If a find someone in the future that can do the work I may try again. There is no one in this area of Florida, that I am aware of, who can do it. The conversion is...

    cHucv Soup: The animal to be

    I am having trouble previewing images with my tablet prior to attaching photos, this has prevented me from being able to apply updates with pictures. I will continue to work on it. The progress has been slow but Josh and I are putting the animal together and it is strarting to look like a truck...

    cHucv Soup: The animal to be

    Well I am back in Tucson, as of yesterday morning. It looks like I will be back at work on the Blazer in the am. Sorry BR, without a load to offset the fuel cost, comming in, I could not justify bringing the deuce. I am sad, I really enjoy driving it. Don't tell anyone but I like it better...

    Fl to AZ run PM if you want something moved

    I am planning to travel from Deltona to Tucson shortly. Currently, I am taking an F250 and M101A3 empty. I can take the big truck if need be. Let me know what you have to move. I am planning on following the I-10 corridor currently, but am flexible on timing and route. This offer is now closed.

    That, Sir, is a fact. You should see the inside of the poor Ford. It was a "Lariat" before I got a hold of it.

    Deuce Stuck and need help!

    You are quite right, I ran the tires up to the "Highway" pressure setting temporarily, trying to lift the truck a few inches to dig out the front end (manually). The CTIS was in mud, snow, sand, ect.. when the initial insult occurred. I would tend to agree with the tire observation, but for one...

    Deuce Stuck and need help!

    I had to leave town for a few days, after I got the truck out, so this is the first chance I have had to do a full post. I was working on the antikythera mechanism, Err aahh... CTIS and needed a place to run the tire pressures up and down, without the bother of scaring/annoying/endangering the...

    cHucv Soup: The animal to be

    What have you been doing in FL OD? Well.... I believe I mentioned I had sold my motorcycle. What I did not know is something would show up at Ft. Benning that would peak my interest.

    cHucv Soup: The animal to be

    I needed to make special arrangements to accommodate my eccentricities and the new gauges, so down comes the transmission pan again. I find it much more pleasant to drop a pan for a filter change without several gallons of fluid dumping on me as I brake the seal, so in addition to a port for my...

    cHucv Soup: The animal to be

    I did get a bit more done before I had to leave town. The wife wanted me home (new home in Florida before Christmas). I am currently in Deltona, but hope to be back in AZ before February. At that poin the build will continue. What follows is a montage of the current state of the CUTV and how I...

    Well, it took one **** of a wrecker, but I am out. I will post pics and details when able. Now I am off to clean the truck before the mud dries too much. Thanks to everyone who tried to help.

    I would have normally, but I wasn't looking to fight with these guys out in the middle of the woods. I will be talking to the owner, once my truck is out.

    Deuce Stuck and need help!

    That is what I told them. They wanted to try. If I had known they would charge me anyway, I would have told them no. In fact the first guy told me they would not charge if they could not move it. Now all I have to show for it, is a bent snatch block ans $75 dollars less cash. Originally, I was...

    Deuce Stuck and need help!

    After much digging/pulling I have the truck's front tires at the edge of the hard. We have moved it 25 feet, with my truck (no thanks to the wrecker) but I am told that it is a bottomless spring. I really hate mud. I was trying to test the CTIS, after doing some repairs. I had no intention of...

    Deuce Stuck and need help!

    I just payed a wrecker service for a call who tried to use an F350 and broke both cables. $75 for the service call ans I am still stuck. I thought they were sending a real truck. I suppose I should have told them no from the beginning.
