Thanks. It was definitely worth the wait. I'm home now after an 18 hour turn around trip. Unloaded, took it for a little spin and ready to hit some back roads in the morning.Wannabehumvee, congrats man. I'm so jealous right now. Well enjoy man. I'm sure the HMMWV was worth the wait.

No, I build ramps for both sides ahead of time and already had them screwed to the trailer wood. I bought rough cut lumber from a local saw mill for $60, then chain sawed angles on them. They are 3 short 2x4's between the sandwich to give a wider path. Then screwed blocks down along the sides to keep the bottom from kicking out. And screwed some boards across the top. Worked like a charm. Put the ole gal in Low reverse and backed it right on. The wooden ramps didn't even have to be tied down since they were screwed down.
The nice gentleman that was at the location for pick up mention that someone recently just drove over the fenders of a brand new trailer and smashed them down to the trailer wheels. Ouch.
i have a short video if you want to see me loading. Is this a good forum to post on or should I pick another topic thread?
my EUC was submitted the same date as yours. I haven't received any letter from Battle Creek. Maybe they just send them to particularly suspicious folks... You know scared straight.... LolIt was basically a letter from the defense logistics agency headquarters regarding the purchase and that it is not to be exported without proper license or permission and that I am responsible to notify any future purchasers or owners.
So you guys never received a letter in the mail?
