    You'll have to take out a second mortgage on your house to afford one of these.

    Friend of mine bought the new CUCVII from an auction, when they took a picture of the data tag we found out the numbers were sequential. They changed their mind on what they wanted to do with the vehicle and sold it to me.

    Picked up another CUCVII Tahoe today. Not only are these both exceptionally rare, but these two have SEQUENTIAL V.I.N.s and military registration numbers. This new one was an Air Force Security Forces vehicle. It will be restored to a military 3-part camoflage paint job and turned into an Army...

    Friend of mine got his CUCV II delivered on Monday. Found it for him on another forum. Helped him convert it back to 24 volts. Turns out that the 6.5 diesel and 5.7 gas cucv models 24v systems are wired the same.

    Some pictures from the Graves Mountain Rally this weekend. We went offroading on some fire service roads

    Picked up a M1102 trailer about 4 hours away from me yesterday. The CUCV II pulls it with no issues. It is connected to the pintle hitch, but I am going to get an adjustable height receiver so it tows more level.

    Even with the Service Light selector in "ALL OFF" my reverse lights come on when in reverse. Is that normal? If it isn't, it probably has to do with the obnoxious security system the prior owner installed

    Nothing complicated about it. It bolts to a universal floor plate.

    Got some questions asked about the console. It is a Jotto Desk. Normally made for police vehicles. The radio is a PRC-138 and the screen is for the dash cam system, Watch Guard 4RE.

    Barely had the time to even do this one lol. Plus you would need to find one first, that is a challenge alone. One of my best friends bought a CUCVII that I found him out in Washington state. It's getting delivered this weekend.

    Finished restoring the CUCV II yesterday. Took longer than I expected but I am very happy with the final product. Definitely keeping this in my collection. I wanted a military vehicle that I can drive on the interstate all day long, and this fits the bill perfectly.

    Good news, the CUCV II is back to 24V! I have attached what an original CUCV II voltage converter cover looks like in comparison to my reproduction.

    Just got the voltage converter panel back from the metal shop. I can have more made if requested.

    Had a problem where the antenna mount I used off a CUCV I didn't have the proper angle on the body, due to the difference in body style from 1984-1999. I bought a CUCV I antenna mount from a friend and it had this special bracket on it that made it level. It is necessary if you want to use a...

    Starting to look good. I've run out of things to do to it until the bumpers are ready.

    The bumpers are different. The CUCV II bumper is a modified version of the stock rear bumper on a Tahoe.

    Yes, the sun and ambient colors affects the paint. I used 383 green. Here's how dark it was last night. It is even darker in the shade in natural sunlight.

    Starting to look like a military vehicle again. Waiting on the bumpers to come back from the powder coater and it will be ready for the road.
