    Default New guy, 1 each

    Morning folks.

    New guy here from Northwest Montana currently working in the North Dakota oil patch. I have hopped on here several times in the last few years conducting research and figured i would register so i can actually see the pics on forum posts lol.

    Anyway,
    Im a former Jarhead and have experience driving Humvees, IFAVS, and CUCV's (overseas as a security contractor), and experience riding in 5 tons with next to no experience wrenching on said vehicles. Im currently interested in acquiring both a CUCV and either a bobbed deuce or 5 ton hopefully this year and am soaking up as much info as i can on the forum.

    Thanks for having me and ill try to refrain from the typical newbie questions.

    S/F,
    Buck

    Welcome from Kentucky Buck. Thank you for your service.
    I'm not saying let's eliminate all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

    Another Welcome from Kentucky!

    I don't own any military vehicles (yet?) but do have a couple of MEP803a generators and have found this site to be an invaluable source of information and assistance with them. Lots of great people on all the forums and I'm sure you will find this place to your liking.
