    Thanks for sharing Warrior Dude. I knew I knew I remembered seeing this somewhere. Black and white too! Mom said "Don't sit so close to the "blank" TV !! Look at us now... computer screen's EVERYWHERE ! Still have a couple of good brain cell left, LOL

    Think MoM was right?

    Saw this during a commercial break watching HOWDY DOODY, CAMO

    NOW BACK TO OUR REGULAR PROGRAMMING.........

    Picked up a M1025A2 off the most recent GoDove auction Friday. EUC wait time was 3 months, but two of those months it was approved and I was told the person that signs them was on vacation. Not even 5 minutes off the trailer I had it doing jumps. I'm going to post the "Rod Hall" suspension in a different thread because it is interesting. This HMMWV was made for special forces and was a GMV.

    S.W.E.E.E.E.E.T !!!


    You're training it well. Learning to jump so quickly! That's a smart MV! Will it SIT? STAY? ROLL OVER???.... UH... Wait a minute! I don't think teaching it to ROLL OVER would be such a good idea!


    Congratulations on the new acquisition.

    Played around and setup my VIC-3. FINALLY. I've only had most of the parts for over a year and just finished picking up the rest of the cables needed for a basic setup. Now that I was able to test it and work out the bugs in some of the hardware, I can finally think about where I'm going to mount it all. I'm thinking about a permanent placement of MCS/L and FFCS/L on the radio deck, a bracket for a removable troop area FFCS, and an optional additional FFCS up front for some hardware that I'm still working out how to use right now. (Hint: it's rarer than hen's teeth in the U.S. and has the potential to remote control modern and non-military radios through the intercom system... I was lucky enough to score two of them, which should be the minimum operating requirement.)

    All made from scratch. I bought the hinge assembly and the center is from a heavy duty ratchet jack.
