btw- what is the hydraulic set up for a M929? I heard the hydraulics for a M925 (or any other M939's with winch) is too low pressure to operate the hoist on the M929 so curious about the system. And really curious then how the M930 (dump w/winch) is set up on the hydraulics. I know the previous generation 5-tons (M52, etc) used a self-contained hydraulic system that was pto driven off the transfer case.

Reference post 38: This seems to be an excellent idea to bend the tailgate and blow the seals out of the lift pistons. The technique is definitely not described in the applicable TM. If you don't want to dump a load of gravel in a pile and spread it out with a loader; rig the chains on the tailgate to limit the opening of the gate when in the top hinge position and walk the truck forward with the body up and spread the load out.

The technique illustrated in post 42 is described in the applicable TM. Example shown is a M817WW and the TM is 9-2320-260-10. M39 and 900 series dumps are similar.
