    I believe that that cushion is for the front bulkhead of the carrier. There is a R and a L for each side so the trooper sitting in the carrier bench seat ribs won't hurt (HA HA!} as much when the driver goes from GO to STOP !!! See the TM . I don't see any backrest for the Med version. I can very much stand corrected. Thank you for selling your extra parts to help the rest of us !!!

    One thing I have noticed about the Goat is that there are not NEAR the extensive photos of the vehicles like there are with the M151, M37, on and on. I am constantly looking at my goat and trying to figure out how things mount or bolt up, besides what I see in the manual. Like the soft door kits, it took me a while to figure it all out, as I didn't find any really good photos of this type of installation. Its crazy to think there aren't the amount of photos other vehicles get.

    As far as I know those cushions were only used on the Ambulance units.

    Default Public Service Announcement

    This is a public Service announcement.
    As you Goat owners know, draining the crankcase can be a bit of a messy endeavor. To solve this, I installed one of this "convenient" Fumoto drain valves with a hose to keep the tub nice and clean. Right?!?
    Well, yesterday, I jacked up the middle of the Goat to get her up on blocks to problem solve the popping/clunking. I decided to jack up the front of the tractor as well. As I placed the blocks under each side, my attention was diverted to the 4ft diameter shadow under my Goat. What the heck was that?!?!? I crawled my way back to investigate. It was black sooty Rotella 40W....all 12 qts!! I keep all the hull plugs in her so there was no way of knowing what was going on
    That "convenient" Fumoto oil valve decided to have a mind of it's own and slowly leaked out all the oil since July. So do yourself a favor, get rid of that Fumoto!

    Default Fumoto Oil Valve Failure Confirmed

    I got under the Goat today and ripped out that Fumoto. I was a bit apprehensive thinking if the valve was clean, then the source of the massive oil loss was something more serious. I got the valve out and removed the hose I had hooked up to it. I gazed down the chute and saw was I suspected....black sooty oil. This was the first time I was happy to see oil on the wrong side of this valve. At least this mystery got solved quick, now onto the clunking in the middle axle....
