    M1078 LMTV Fix-up Thread

    There are 2 types of wheel valves, for 4x4 and for 6x6. They have diffrent part numbers and max pressure. But the QRV should be the same on all LMTV models. What happen if you don't use the hwy mode, but the xc mode? Is the system more stable than? Christian

    Some news from the front :) Due travel limitations here in Europe the only way to get out of this crazy world is to try finding a spot where you don't see no one all day, and to find out what is important for you.

    OK, seems that I'm not alone... I immagine you start on front/back side of the drum and then the other side right? Also use the springs for holding the jack? Thank you! Christian

    M1083A1 no CTIS Controller
