    A1R rear axle locker (intermediate axle from MTV) questions.

    the R&P is slightly different inside the middle third of 6x6 compared to the LMTV's.... hence why it has different part numbers to the LMTV's. Question for you Tom do you think: > that likely it is still true.... the R&P is still not same between the High Pinion and the previous OEM LMTV...

    CTIS and Arduino

    yeah I guess you would need an air shut off solenoid in the hose on each wheel that feeds air to the wheel; at minimal, and that seems like it would still get tricky to figure it out.
