    Gear Report:

    Please consider going to the paint and restoration section to look up Behr paint color alternatives to CARC, and then lightly sand and paint your doors to match.

    Your vehicle is great, and paint will make it look that much more kick-@$$

    MHO, YMMV

    lol. I get a kick out of this type of comment.
    I had tan doors on the original Battlewagon for a while and it drove some folks NUTS.

    Personally... I liked it because it was visually distinctive. ie. it made my truck stand out. It is a marketing truck. I have it to get attention for my brand.
    Everyone knew when they saw the camo truck with tan doors that it was Gear Report.
    Not so much when I put the green doors on it.

    I'm kind of diggin' the same effect of the current setup.
    However, the paint on the doors is getting kind of ratty. I've got enough 686 Carc Substitute to shoot the entire exterior. Just can't decide if I want to just yet. Still doing too much work to it and getting greasy fingerprints all over. I might paint the whole thing once the constant stream of upgrades and maintenance slows down. I've got some 383 green as well... so if I paint the doors could still be green.

    Installed two newer batteries in the Hmmwv. The old Hawker batteries finally gave up. They had a 2004 date code so LOL. Installed a Solorizer and a bridge plate. I guessed the combined weight of the M998 with my M101A2 would come out at 12K. Anyone have another opinion? Have to have it right !!!

    I don’t know about the trailer, but the GVWR of an M998 is 7700# and the curb weight of mine sits right at 5200 in the 4-man configuration (no armor) without doors. I haven’t weighed it since converting to 2-man.

    You realize that the way the power goes to the wheels would prohibit that modification, or at least make it very difficult?

    My thoughts exactly.

    Might take some "southern engineering".
