    Stand alone glow plug control? Bypass "smart" box?

    Where I live it seems to only be cold enough to need the glow plugs in the morning for the first start of the day or the couple months of winter we have. I've already gone through one "smart" box and it's dead now too...and I'm wondering why I can't just rig up a relay to the glow plugs similar...

    Glow plug question

    My hmmwv glow plugs are no longer working and I'm frustrated. At first, the light would blink the entire time during the wait period, but once it stopped flashing the truck would start, although running rough for a few seconds. I assumed and was told this was because of some bad glow plugs. I...

    mirror relocation for hard doors?

    I just finally got around to putting a set of doors on my truck, and noticed that you can't really even see the mirrors when they're on. Is there a different mounting spot for hard doors vs soft, or just accept the fact that they're almost useless?

    oil pressure sending unit question : no oil pressure

    I've got 0 oil pressure showing on the gauge, and I'm guessing the sending unit is the problem. With the ignition power all the way off the needle on the gauge is below zero, and once you turn the power on the needle moves to zero, but starting the engine causes no additional change. It's got...

    how wide is the hmmwv?

    I have looked, but I've seen 85" and 86" from sidewall to sidewall. My trailer is exactly 85" between the fenders, and if the hmmwv is 86 then it's gonna mess up the fenders when I pick it up and I'd rather not do that. Trying to figure out if I should get another trailer or not.

    Where to find doors and how much?

    I'm looking at purchasing a hmmwv but it doesn't have any doors. I've looked online but only found a few, and 2000 for a set of 4 hard doors sounds like a lot. How much should I expect to pay for 4 hard doors or 4 soft doors so I know what to budget before buying the truck?

    going to bob my 5ton, have some questions

    first off, rear springs. Can 105 trailer springs be used? I've got one I can use if it will take the weight. if not, next choice would be deuce front springs in the hope that they wouldn't be as stiff and ride better than 5 ton front springs. Also, I've heard people talk about rotating the...

    I'm thinking about finally moving up to a 5ton 9series but I was recently told that I would have to get a cdl to legaly drive it just because it is full air brakes. Is that the case?

    my mep 701a runs funny

    I just bought an mep701a since it has the sound enclosure. I started it up and it ran fine, adjusted the idle to 60hz and voltage to 110-120 and let it run for about 5 min or so powering a big work light and a fan. Then the idle dropped to where it wasn't making enough hz for the meter, and it...
