    Keith_J Both kinds of arc welding, that’s hilarious! Not to be confused with both kinds of music, country and western. I actually thought about throwing my 65’ SA 200 in the truck just in case. But looks like you have that covered. Good to know cuz you just don’t throw a SA 200.

    Another perfect reason to get that roof top tent I’ve been eyeing. If I can get the Deuce road worthy I’m in. If not I’m still in.

    715Mike thanks for posting the info! Looking forward to getting the truck in her natural habitat and see what those 395’s will actually do. I already know what it will do in flood waters.

    My RTT will make the trip one way or the other. The question is whether I have a driveable vehicle before then. The starter is out on both the M37 and the Champ. The 37, I believe, is just "stuck" and would probably be coaxed into working with a couple of love taps of a BFH. The Champ is a mystery. It doesn't seem to be getting juice to the starter and not sure if it's a wiring issue or a starter issue.

    Anyway, if I bring the M37 I have to tow with the F350 which means sliding the RTT into the bed on some blocks and strapping it down for the trip. If the Champ comes I can tow it with the Titan and mount the RTT the way it's supposed to be. If neither MV comes then it'll be the Titan solo again.

    Mkcoen pm me about the starter issue I’ll see if I can help you get it going. Your not too far from me if it needs a Bigger FH.

    Also I’d like to talk with you about RTT’s.

    The Champ starter is smaller. And easier to access. But the M37 is simple. One way or another you are going. Probably with the more trail capable Champ.

    Never attended an event such as this. Would a 930A2 dump be allowed? I'm just getting going in the MV universe!

    Absolutely! We’d love to have a M930 at the rally. I hope you can make it.


    If my memory serves me (which is questionable), someone brought a M930 dump out a few years ago. I’m going to have to look back through pictures now....

    Any and all odd ball or "normal" military vehicles are welcome. Plus cool non military vehicles too.

    Now, at the museum Saturday it needs to be just military vehicles.

    HA! I'm not losing it! At least not tonight.....

    Member sidel2426 had a dump truck at the 2015 TX MV Rally. Well, it's not a M930, but it's still a dump truck...
