    European scrap - salvage yards and parts suppliers

    Geez Robo, Those trucks and jeeps looks brand new compared to the rusted and busted up shit we auction off here :P. I take it its Mercedes G-Wagons or similar vehicles produced on license?

    Securing your MTVR? anyone installing locks? ignition keys?

    My plans are a keyed ignition switch, lockable door handles and then combat locking the passenger door from the inside so that it can't be opened even if the handle is unlocked and tugged on. And then in addition to that lock up my toolboxes.

    Air up to shorten start up time?

    I would love this feature on modern trucks as well. I have seen my share of truck leaking air so badly that they empty out the tanks over night, but does keep air during the work day with the engine topping up the tanks via the compressor. Needless to say its not optimal in any given way, but...

    Looking for information on multimeters, regular or one that also clips around wires? Don’t know much so brand, if permitted, model etc thanks.

    Fluke is the Rolls Royce of Multimeters, but for most and general cases a regular cheap ass multimeter will do for basic troubleshooting. I trace wires etc on my car and have settled for just a el-cheapo multimeter for 15 USD which gets the job done for the time being.

    Interesting article on "right to repair" of MV's

    Just read the article and that kind of legislation is insanely stupid. But I regrettably think we are fighting someone of the same kind of battles here across the pond. Our army mechs are attending training at Scania, MAN etc to certify on their vehicles so that they can fix them INOP. So we can...

    Robo, I meant the words on the picture you posted of the drivelive :). And can that driveline actually lock its various wheels together?

    Lone Star Drift - Youtuber with Humvee vs. Jeep

    Ah so that's what's its called :). Same trick sorta applies for modern AWD vehicles, or that you have to keep throttle on, for the ECM to discover that there is wheel slippage and vector torque/power accordingly

    MRAP Buffalo Trainer

    What were these trainers used for?. I know the Danish army contingent in Iraq etc used US Navy Cougar HEV 6x6 as actual units when deployed. But we had 1-2 Cougar JERRV's located at the Army Combat Training Centre to be used for driver training and familiarisation. While not trained on one I...

    How much is too much fuel

    That image is pretty normal for a turbo powered engine ;). Its when they get whitehot etc you should start to worry.

    Wreckers: Do people buy them for hobby or use?

    Reversing with double pivots are a pain. I mean I got the hang of it during my certification, but haven't reversed a double since. Going forward is easy enough and they turn nice and tight, but don't ask me to reverse one around a bend or in a straight line :P

    Wreckers: Do people buy them for hobby or use?

    I mean the boom extensions :P. But thanks for clearing that up. I have a crane operator license for any and all cranes as long as they are selfdriven :D. But only recently so I am very curious :P

    European Member List

    I am sadly without a military vehicle yet :P. Guess I might have to settle for one of the old Military MC's or cross my fingers for getting my own MP Military bike down the road :P

    Wreckers: Do people buy them for hobby or use?

    Are those extensions hydraulic or do you have to slide those in and out manually and then slide a security pin through??

    Crane Ideas?

    My idea "dream" would be fitting a proper Knuckle boom crane aka Palfinger, HMF, Fassi etc on my military truck of choice. I know it won't be cheap and it will limit my choice of MV's since some of these cranes are pretty hefty beasts.

    Thinking about pulling the Deuce Trigger Again

    Considering the Deuces I tend to favour the A2 over the A3 because I would always prefer a MultiFuel over a Diesel engine, being situated close to a refinery and several fastfood joints and mechanics I would be able to get oil for free from :P. Downside is missing out of a automatic and power...

    Where to attach a recovery strap

    You mean in the TM's specifically for the Wreckers ??.
