    Heh. First time I've ever reported one of Rick's posts. I wanted to let the mods know there is sticky material right there!

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

    Or... maybe not.

    My M1028A2 does not.

    In fact I haven't seen a military CUCV truck with one, but I've only seen a
    Half dozen or so.

    Are you sure about that ? If so that explains why my seat back never worked ! I always just thought the latch was broken !

    I was looking around the hinge mechanism on my seat and I found part of what looks to be the locking mechanism just flopping around in there. It's a little bar with that seems like it could crab the teeth on the seat back. It is clearly still missing some parts though.

    Don't know?
    Seems like more are missing the latch than those that have it.

    I figured it was removed for easier access to the Rifle/mounts.

    Started mounting a snowplow that I took off of my 1980 K20. Now I know why shops charge so much to swap plows, what a pain in the backside! Hope to finish up this weekend.

    The only seat latch on the m1028/M1008 is a centrigficail one that swings forward and locks during impact or hard braking. They opted to have no latch. And that was like that on civilian trucks of the same year. it worked well.

    The factory seat I took out of my M1028 had no latch on the back. Stay thirsty my friend.
