    Picked up an M1009.

    Been driving it and noticed shift points were off.... 35 and 50, super harsh.

    I know what that means....

    So I pulled the air cleaner housing off and inspected the vacuum lines...

    They crumbled in my hand.

    Went to O'Reilly, spent 6$ on new vacuum tubing, and now shifting around 25 and 35....so soft you almost can't feel it.

    I love simple fixes.

    Bumper? Looks more like a battleship!

    Nice job!

    Non standard parts in CUCV?
    You offend against the pure OEM design!
    Evaluate self! Reflect and repent!

    Or... maybe not.

    Picked up a decent lower front seat from CUCVRUS. Removed the upper part and after some re-threading of the lower attachment hardware, I was able to get it all back together.
    Sure wish I had this completed before the Convoy. The newer seat is much firmer that the old worn out one and fells much better where it counts.

    Got the tires balanced and no more shimmy and wobble above 63 MPH. Truck drives and handles much better now.



    Thanks to Rick for the seat!
