    I took the opposite route and added the 1083 bed to my 1078 - it worked great, and for what I need was great alternative.

    LMTV Recovery, Denver to Reno this week 3/17-3/20

    I just saw this, but arrived in Reno late last night, hope safely. It was a great journey, with the lower passes in Ely and Eureka, and Austin all covered in snow. Two of them were blizzard conditions, but the LMTV plowed through, just took it slow. I'd very much like to meetup, will send you...

    Will do - the hubs, and fluids have been changed and recently checked. I'll double check, and yes I did get all of the manuals downloaded on my laptop, and have tried to read through the pertinent sections. I've also read most of the FMTV posts here, and been tracking the Facebook page since...

    Steel Soldiers migration 12/9/19

    Looks like the link on the master forum list for classified threads is working fine, so disregard, but the top menu link to classifieds does not link to the forum. I've got a workaround for now!

    The classifieds are showing "oops" for me. I assume they are still being imported? Thanks! Nice clean layout. I'm a newbie but have found this forum a tremendous resource.
