    Which Gabriel's did you use? Mine have been on for over a year now.

    Did a little 700 mile round trip trek and swapped 4 tires onto this M786A1 TMT and drug it back to Memphis on a towbar. Had 2 blowouts on the tires I decided to leave on the truck so about 2hrs lost changing those out. Nice long day yesterday. Towed well. A little heavy I am gonna say its close to 32k

    Ended up breaking a door latch on my truck so I swapped that out and I had a leaking o ring on the CAT output yoke so I dropped the shaft down and replaced it during a fuel stop

    Jeebus, when you have a blow out, you don't fool around.

    Is this truck extremely rare? I Googled it and couldn't even find any real images of that model, just civilian trucks and earlier military TMT's. It looks very interesting!

    Marine corp only. I don't know the exact production but maybe 20 to 50. There is a TM on it. It is an Altec setup though.

    Cool truck, I am storing a truck for a friend that was a Navy truck that has a drill rig on it. It show to be a M925A1 but with on winch, but it has the wet kit on it.
    He painted the drill rig white, not sure why.

    Correction just got off the phone and got rid of one more so five more to go.
    Why purge getting to old to have that amount of projects plus my memory is about done and want grass not trucks. Going to sell the five acres if I can get it cleared out. So money is the truth and I rather be on a warm beach some where or travel around the U.S.A. four wheeling with my Polaris RZR.
