    I don't know who you are talking too but they are doing the FL titled but noted as off HWY because of the speed rating of 50 mph. Depending on the state it will be listed as off road or off highway. So you can drive them on the road, essentially it comes down to YOUR DMV.

    Made this thread a sticky.

    Thank you Blackmagic for making the phone calls.

    Since this is a sticky there is no need for additional threads about the subject.

    And you may want to read the other sticky in the HMMWV forum

    It depends on the Federal Government and how they enforce the Off Road Use restriction.

    Remember they can always change the de-mil code and they can come get our play toys at anythime (yes it has happened)

    Just as a reminder, the DLA has not changed their stance of the "off-road-use only" restriction. Here is a blurb from their website:

    "Humvee/HMMWVIn November 2014
    DLA Disposition Services began releasing excess military Humvee cargo and troopcarriers with model numbers M998, M998A1, M1038 and M1038A1 to all eligible reutilization,transfer and donation (RTD) recipients. These are early model "soft side" unarmored vehicles.Participants in the Fire Fighters and law enforcement support programs remain eligible for the items aswell. Vehicles not acquired by those special programs or RTD recipients may be sold to the public for off road use. They will be offered under a contract for disposal of rolling stock. Seewww.govplanet.com for additional information."

    http://www.dispositionservices.dla.m.../Sales/FAQ.pdf

    Until this stance is changed all the BS you hear on the internet is just that, BS.


    Please understand that I would love to see all almost all MVs sold to the general public with no restrictions what so ever.

    We have had two post the last couple of days about the FoxNews report. Once again it is BS until the DLA changes their stance.
