    HanksDeuce: 8" Lift, Bobbed, External Cage, A/C and more Project!

    Used the Warn 18k winch on my bobbed deuce for some landscaping duty. Pulled a sago palm and a (?) tree out. I used the spare tire from my daily driver as a fulcrum. Apologize for the vertical video from Soldier B.

    Anybody have any aftermarket M35A* LED headlights they particularly like?

    I have (2) sets of Truck-Lite LED headlights on my bobbed M35A2. To make sure I don't blind oncoming traffic, I parked behind a metal building one night and aligned them against the wall to favor slightly to the right. No one hits me with the high beams. Plenty of light.

    Locker in the rear axle only

    I'm not really much help being a bobber, but I do run an Ouverson rear locker. No issues. :)

    Good hitch for pulling non-military trailers.

    I didn't want this to happen to my deuce: This receiver hitch from Justin Wehring was used for inspiration: Final product from Black Rock Fab: After final paint:

    Deuce with Cummins 6BT Info thread

    I don't think so. Here's another one without an intercooler (from page 1 of this thread). Air filter feeds front of turbo (not the firewall side). Of course the turbo in the picture below sits up much higher than the Eastern Surplus listed engine. I have no clue if there was a contract with...

    Deuce with Cummins 6BT Info thread

    The intake piping looks funny on that truck. My truck has the turbo compressor inlet closer to the radiator, and the exhaust dumps into the downpipe near the firewall. It looks like this truck has the compressor inlet piping on the firewall side, but how is the downpipe routed near the...

    Runaway Multifuel cutoff?

    See my build thread and/or build site listed below. I have had zero problems on my 12v swap in my bobbed deuce. I also have installed a blast gate on the intake to protect from a runaway. Let me know if you have any questions.

    2 close calls within 1 mile today (video)

    Drove my bobbed deuce for the first time in a few months today. First, I ate lunch with my wife and a friend. Then I drove to my mom's house for a 40 mile cruise to clear out the cobwebs. 2 Close calls within a mile on the same road: #1 SUV tried to back up while I approached him in the...

    HanksDeuce: 8" Lift, Bobbed, External Cage, A/C and more Project!

    It's been a while since I posted, but I'm still around and check the forum often. I drive my deuce as much as I can when the Louisiana weather cooperates. No issues to speak of. Here's a video of my bobbed deuce in the 2018 Veterans Day Parade in Gonzales, LA on 11/11/18. I found the...
