    pure, aka distilled water does not conduct electricity. it is the minerals and chemicals in the water that conduct the electricity.

    First Aid Kit and Fire Extingusher

    Those that carry first aid kits, does everyone know how to use all the equipment in them? and do you check them every so often? packaging will break down very fast when exposed to the elements. also a lot of the commercial kits are kinda worthless IMHO, they have too much of what u dont need and...

    But i dont want duramax & allison. too amny computers and too much $$$$$$ i could get a 4BT and a 6speed tranny & t-case for cheap and no computers. could wire easily with a pre terminated fuse block from painless wiring. just need to find a cheap HMMWV with a cleanbody, 4 door hard top. oh...

    thats what i was looking at. seems to be simular to the 6.2 & 6.5 in power when its stock. a turbo, pump and injectors can get around 300 ish HP i think. certainly gonna look into it more! the thing is 10" shorter that a 6BT!!! thats a HUGE difference! but just as tall obviously so body lift...

    ford used V8 because of power, not size. the V8 configuration offered better power across the RPM range. powerstrokes are a bit too tall for HMMWVs because of the turbo being on top of the engine. 2" or more of body lift are required. yes the 4BT is a common upgrade, basically the cummins...

    Picked it up at local bookstore going outta business. Anyhow, theres an article about a guy who threw an '04 duramax and allison in his HMMWV. put in a different t-case as well, LoL runs a 12.8 @ 101MPH! re wired the whole thing to 12VDC and put in half shafts from an ambulance. Threw H2 wheels...

    M35a2 V.S. my house

    more sure everything is structurally sound before hanging around in the garage. the roof could be weakened on that corner if theres that much damage to the wall. looks like a good excuse to expand the garage! not meaning to hijack the thread, but youre just down the road from me! im in Brady
