    Default Dismantling 5th wheel and service deck from an M1088 FMTV

    Stripping the chassis of my 1088 for a camper conversion. Anyone need these pieces? Free to good home... Otherwise off to the recycling place, or open to any other useful suggestions.

    Located outside Portland OR.

    Just a suggestion:

    These would make a great KIT for making a Semi-Trailer Converter Dolly on a suitable Trailer Frame for dragging said Semi-Trailer behind a pintle hitch equipped MV.

    And THANKS to USAFSS-ColdWarrior, thanks for moving my original post (or whoever actually did it?). I didn't even know this sub-forum existed. If these parts disappear this quickly and easily, it would make my day!

    I cannot take credit for moving this thread to the Pay It Forward forum.... but glad I spotted it when it appeared here.
    If your parts were closer to Texas I would have grabbed them up for my own Dolly Converter project (just a dream at this time).

    So happy that the parts offered are finding a good home and new life.!

    Tod swung by yesterday to pick this up so it's gone and off to participate in his project. Glad to see it go to someone so appreciative and friendly. It was a pleasure to meet him, get it transferred to his rig, and hear about his plans.

    My rig is now almost completely stripped to its chassis. Need to relocate the trans cooler and make a decision on re-positioning the induction tract/spare carrier vs stock configuration- then it's on with the build. YAY!!
