    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?

    great info to know. I wasn't trying to complain that prices were high, but for me being uneducated about the market I thought I might be getting ripped off. I found a set of hard doors for 1500 and from what i've gathered from this thread, it's not a bad deal. I'll be getting doors this weekend...

    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?

    how to remove rear drum?

    I have a leaking wheel cylinder in the rear axle and I need to replace it. How do I remove the drum? I can't figure it out. I pulled off the wheels, and then thought it should just beat off. Nope, so I removed all the nuts I saw attached to studs running around the drum, still nothing. I've...

    Started bobbing my 5ton

    I put it in the stock location almost, through the bed. It was waayyyy too loud straight piped so I kept the muffler. Now, due to unforeseen circumstances I need to sell it. Ughh, once I get something nice that I love it has to go because I need money. Time for me to hit the lottery!
