    for what it's worth, I picked up one of those Navy Weapons (bomb) trailers, added railings and some plywood to make signage, and use that. That way we aren't relying on a specific prime mover. Anyone who has a truck can pull it in the parade.

    Thanks, and dang. I had a buddy that was potentially a dealer. Oh well, maybe some will still show and setup outside.

    Garbee, looking forward to your cooking, I've always enjoyed it. Getting excited. I'm hoping to escape here on Weds. I have to do some work on Tuesday though, so, we shall see.

    Using FOIA to get truck info

    Guyfang, I'd agree, but then I was pulling info for trucks that had been surplused out decades prior when I still had access to that system. Now, it wasn't complete records, just last unit of assignment usually. But it was interesting how much I could find. JW, no clue on the USMC, but it...

    Official NC Denton Rally 2021 Buy/Sell

    All, Just thought of this, I will be offering Notary Public services for the state fee of $5. Since it occurs in NC, I can notarize it. I may want to do a bit of research on exactly what you are presenting if it's anything more than normal.

    Some welding trucks for your perusal

    Welding trucks are a fascinating sub-culture of trucks. Almost always on a 3500/350 or even larger chassis, 100% work in the bed, with almost no room for anything else, and then some have been absolutely pimped out in the cab/front. The amount of capability for a specific mission puts even the...

    USAF Vehicle Markings - Overseas

    the only thing I can say for certain is that the USAF HMMWVs that were "allocated" to the USAF guys, but required US Army to maintain while I was in Korea, did NOT have a white star. IIRC of the 3, 2 were OD Green and one was woodland. All 3 had decals (vs. paint) on the hood that siad "U.S...

    HMMWV M998 presentation across the Atlantic.

    This is interesting as I just had the chance to get an eye on some brand new JLTVs in a motorpool... all of which had load/dimension data plates on the rear fender. I should have taken a picture but didn't. To me it makes sense. easier to figure out load data when you don't have to crawl in and...
