Its been a good rig I have tried to pimp it out on some fire fighting projects but blm keeps insisting on rubber tracks and bv 206's which you just cant make any money on the bv206 the cost of the parts are so much and their maintenance is much higher than a supermodel.
    A bit of history on the machine...I bought it from a dealer that acquired it from a (Indian) Tribal association. It was dented when I got it, it appeared to have been dented for a while since they painted it CARC over the dent. One of the pivot steering brakes leaked so it was always low (and did not work unless you topped it off). I rarely used them so I just did not bother with it. I put the NOS soft top on it (which was new at that time). I have some pics of it somewhere. I'll try to find and post them.

    its a small world isn't it. we never used the pivot steer up here mike asked about using them I asked him how bad he wanted to put the track back on as I previously posted the bushings and pins eventually wore out we got to put the track back on in knee deep mud.

    I also found complete suspension kits for the M548 I didn't even know I had. If you need one, shoot me a PM. I am going to take a walk out today and see if I have any pins, or just all tracks.

    Heck I dunno. I guess to swap out all of the suspension on the M548. Or to make a great center piece for kitchen table? Not any clue, really. Never seen one nor realized I had them.
