    CA law

    I found out for military, it just best to have a registration service place to register it / vin verifie, not dmv or AAA. Especialy good if you can find a shipping/packing place that does dmv reg on the side. They usualy ship stuff for active armd forces familys and are more leanient on...

    horn not work after replace cam

    OK, solved it. I actualy found the answer though fj forum. The ground is ran through the rag joint into the steering box. That Rag joint is the issue, it has a little tiny piece of metal that connects the inner splines to an outer bolt. That piece brakes. Simply put a jumper wire from one side...

    Another CUCV accident

    One reason not to salvage is becouse " IF" it gets in a really bad accident then its worth more. And right now the other insurance is willing to fix, just got to find the right shop.

    Another CUCV accident

    If there's no crease, that big BS on the shop, even insurance. Look for a mobile dent remover as well. Since no crease, they just weld on a steel rod (puller) and then they have machine or a slide hammer and it just pulls the dent out.

    Got a new m1009

    I can only imagine how bad/scary that was. My old m37 was sitting next to my window of the house and is came off the rim on a hot day, and the tube let go. That shook my window and scared me. Can't imagine that in the rear seat.

    I have too Many CUCV's and Parts

    Just a side note, if the missing tailgate is bugging you alot, just pick one up off a civi k5/ suburban. Just make sure its manual. Can get them for around $80 with good glass. Civi and cucv are exact same, just diff paint. The few bolts to swap may also get you a much better asking price if you...
