    Hi not finding anyone say anything about how behr paint holds up in the winter. I live in Wisconsin and can have very cold winters. Also is this for road driving or does it handle off road driving with sticks and mud? Sent from my LG-K450 using Tapatalk

    Thanks grover26! Can you attest to it never hardening and staying black? Did you prime at all?

    Coal-Tar Epoxy?

    Wondering if anyone has any experience with the stuff. It is used in highly corrosive environments, and is relatively inexpensive. Think it would make a great frame paint.

    Upgrading a CUCV's max towing capacity?

    Its not about that, the 6.2 is a best of both worlds kind of engine. Some power and mpgs. Plus our convo wasn't about engine it was about the pure toughness of the truck. Its also just a hobby.

    I got lucky, when I bought my m1008 its bed and interior was completely rhino lined, and painted to match. Would love another military veicle , but money is tight at 16! Good find tho, I got really lucky I only paid 3250, fully working no body damage, fresh paint. The guy just liked me and knew...

    My new M1008 and a Gazillion questions

    What tires then do you guys recommend for it, I know I already asked about the m1009. I will be on the road only, and if I am off road its flat dirt. So, maby a tire for mostly on road, can handle snow.

    My new M1008 and a Gazillion questions
