    I have a back injury and a failed knee replacment, and am 60 years old. I cant work like I want and cant find help. I have lost over a 100 lbs and all my mussel mass. But I am unable to sit still, I need to work.

    Slow and steady wins the race, no hurries. I'll bet most of us on the site are rooting for your health and forward progress as time permits.

    Sir, you don't know me from Adam, but I'd be happy to help post your pictures if texting is easier than uploading them to the site. Send me a PM and I'll share my number if interested.

    joshuak thank you for your offer to help post photos. I have never sent a text in my life, I have daughters to help when they can. My oldest just graduated nursing with honors past Friday. I hope to have some photos posted soon.

    I have allmost all the parts I will need to get this truck running, I think. I found a nos takeoff starter and the brace to the block. I bought a complete set of military manuales. Alos found a GM traning manual just for the 6.2 enging. This has many clear full page diagrams of every compent. I degreased the enging and powerwashed the frame and undercarrage.

    This truck has a np208 transfer case, per tag on case. I want to install camper windows on box, but dont know how thick the walls are on the fiberglass box.

    I just absolutely love the view of the front grille, what a great looking vehicle.
    O Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee. My friends all drive Teslas, that won't work for me. Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from the DMV. So Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee.

    I built a custom front bumper with a winch I may put on. But like how it looks now.

    I broke the tab off the idiot light sending unit in the block. I ordered a new part GM 25037177. Thank to rain I am unable to work today, I need a rest. I have read posts on how long it takes to change out pumps, it took me 4 days trying my best.
