    Congratulations! Plan on not getting any sleep until it arrives.
    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.

    Hola Beehumvee,
    great to see that you finally found your vehicle ! Congratulations ! Looks really nice. The vehicle seems to have had armour at some time in its life, judging from the large screws in the footwell. It also has an armoured grille on the hood. Would be interesting to learn about the history of this one.

    Letīs hope you donīt have to wait too long for it to arrive. I had to wait four weeks, and that felt like an eternity.....

    there is a hole in the top of the windshield in the right side, which i do not know its purpose...
    There are metal side armor plates and angled grille slats that keep bullets and shrapnel from hitting the radiator.

    sometimes you can clean off the paint sprayed over the numbers stenciled on the fender corners...they will tell you what unit it was with to search for some history on it.

    the two holes above the windshield on the right is where the upper mount bracket for the snorkel tube bolts on.

    I have been reading about cleaning off the paint of the markings with carb cleaner... the question then is where to look for when the markings appear?

    Regarding tyre pressure markings, my truck seems to have printed different pressures for the same tyres... why can be this way?

    Thank you DREDnot
