    Default Just another LMTV build thread

    And so it begins.

    Meet Max. My 3 year old cane up with that a little while ago.

    He is a 1994 model. Itís still early in the game but I have a feeling there are quite a few issues that will need to be dealt with.

    My short term plan is to get all of the systems checked and all of the PMís done.
    Long term, who knows?


    First order of business. Someone caged the brakes. I got that knocked out and now I can actually use the park brake.

    Second order of business. Fix the &$@$ cab tilt latch so I can see whatís under the cab.

    Looks like the O-ring is blown behind the cab lock button.

    Thatís most likely the issue. I got it torn most of the way down today. Going to take another stab at it tomorrow.

    You have to work your way thru the issues & then you will have a fine truck to drive around causing people to ask you, "Why do you have that thing." Good luck with Max.

    There is a guy in the northwest that has a bunch of videos on youtube about his build out. He just did one on the cab lock repair specifically. Can't remember his name but if you do an LMTV search I know you will find it.
