    MTR vs MT tire mixing

    I'm putting a new set of MTR tires on my HMMWV, I noticed on the side wall of the MTR's it says not to mix with MT tires, anyone know why ? I always heard not to mix bias ply and radial ply tires but the MT's and MTR's are both radials. I am planning to keep my best MT tire as a spare and put my...

    HMMWV tires, runflat required or not

    I'm about to put new tires on my HMMWV, is it a good idea to put the runflats back in ? Or can I run the tires with out runflats ? I don't see running low tire pressure in my future, mostly just drive to events and back. MTR tires going on 12 bolt rims, M998 1986. Thanks

    Coolant Filter Yes or No

    Any one tried to mount a coolant filter in their HMMWV ? I search but many find for the 5 tons filters, was wondering if it's possible and if it's worth it.

    Seafoam Trans Tune

    Just curious, has anyone used SeaFoam Trans Tune in the HMMWV transmission ? I am still waiting to pick my HMMWV up and as I'm new to HMMWV's I'd rather ask than make a big mistake. I see lots of videos of SeaFoam in Fuel, Engine and Transmissions but not in a HMMWV, so has anyone tried it and...

    923A2 not building any air

    Need help, I've found plenty of issues where air builds up to +/- 60psi but in my case it does not build up any pressure. I can service the tanks from an external source, I do not hear any air leaking, truck drives normal with each application of brakes bleeding down the air as normal but no air...

    Change my Mushroom Cap

    I have seen post with pictures showing a cone shaped air intake pre filter, does that replace the mushroom pre filter intake ? If so anyone know where I can find on to fit on my M923A2 ? The cone shaped cap looks (to me) to be a much better looking unit than the standard mushroom cap.
