    The official 2022 Southeast Military Vehicle Rally information thread (the event formerly known as the Georgia Rally). This is gonna' be awesome!

    I haven’t posted on Steel Soldiers in 5 years and I haven’t driven my deuce in an equally embarrassing amount of time (6 months? 9 months?), but this looks like it will absolutely kick ass. Huge thanks to Clint, Mac, Jeff, Mark, Dave, and whoever else I’m forgetting for doing all the legwork...

    HMMWV PMCSd, fueled, and just about loaded up. Will be wheels-up from Alpharetta shortly after lunch tomorrow. Now it's time to see how much stuff can go sideways between now and then!

    Also looking for an aluminum front turn signal/parking light housing... doesn't need the lens or anything. Standard M-series, for a HMMWV. I found out this afternoon that the plastic ones break easily :roll:

    Temperature Sending unit

    If you check the parts manual (TM9-2320-280-24P-1), you'll find the coolant temperature sending unit is item 11 in figure 66. That will tell you the correct part number and NSN so you can check around at the various military parts suppliers to find it. KASCAR, Erik's Military and Industrial...

    Led taillight upgrade issues.

    Has anybody tested the LED functionality when using the civilian/aftermarket Novita/Tridon EG22 flasher module? Thanks, Ken

    2016 Ga Military Vehicle Rally buy/sell/trade thread

    Swap meet is literally all day every day at the rally. Most guys that are selling lots of stuff camp out right at their vendor spot. If you're looking for somebody or something in particular and can't find it, you can ask around. Every one is super friendly.

    Did the T-shirt design ever get finalized? Inquisitive minds want to see it!

    Official '15 Ga. Rally Multimedia thread

    Any idea on when the professional video of the hardball convoy, etc, will be available? I imagine it will take them a little while to get it edited and all shipshape. -Ken

    Official 2015 Ga. Rally buy/sell/trade thread

    Hey y'all, I'm looking for a 3" 8-point axle nut socket for the M44-series 2 1/2 ton trucks. Yes, yes, I know I can fight with my local NAPA and have them order one, etc, but maybe I can finagle myself a good deal on one at the rally. Also looking for an affordable impact wrench (pneumatic or...

    Brake hose upgrades?

    I had some replacement rubber hoses (and a replacement brake line, too) made up for my 2 1/2 ton and Joe had some specialty lines made for his Gamma Goat at Royal Brass and Hose in Marietta--they seemed to be pretty decent, too.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    I did absolutely nothing to my deuce this week, last week, or last month. In fact, I've been 1100 miles away from my deuce for all of that time. However, I did pick up 4 11.00x20 NDCCs today, which means there will be a whole pile of work done soon--rear hub un-flipping to accommodate duals...
