    M105 Trailer Taken off Fort Stewart

    Need a M105 taken off of Fort Stewart so I can come in and pick it up after working hours. Only thing I see that it may need is the tailgate to be held up via a ratchet strap. Everything else appears in good condition.

    Non-military 20' Trailer Strengthening Advice

    I picked up a trailer and started to strip it down to strengthen the frame, redo the axle, add brakes, and redo all the wiring. The first thing I need to figure out is how to strengthen the frame. Before taking it apart you could sit on the corner and the trailer would flex more than I want...

    Brought a M103-A3 home with F150

    Went down to Columbia yesterday to pick up Mike's M103-A3. Got all my lights hooked up and also had to extend the safety chains. Everything went smooth with the extended pintle adapter I put on the F150. Trailer was super easy to pull without any issues. Sat on the highway at a cruising speed of...

    Military Diecast Collection

    Wanted to start my collection and was curious what everybody else has built. I'm going to build a M1078 with a M1082 trailer and a S280 shelter on it. I got lucky and snagged an ITALERI shelter that is the 12' ones unlike the 20' ISO ones they only make now.

    Support strap for the compressor, ideas?

    The housing is deff cracked so I have sourced a good used Cat 3116 front mechanical housing Part#7E-6366 for $200 shipped. I'm not going to repair the one on there as I would rather have a good one without issues. My next thing is to find a way to support the compressor properly to avoid this...

    Utilis SM-5 16' x 8', I'm Confused.

    Picked up a tent from Bragg. The SM-5 is usually 8' x 8', but for some reason I have a 2-door SM-5 16' x 8' in my possession. Is this a hallway or maybe just two stuck together. Maybe it's mislabeled and supposed to be a SM-10? I will hopefully put it together this weekend and see. Just wanted...

    Dan's M1081 Pick-up and Build

    As I did with the M998 I left early to try and beat Coffey1 to the site so I could start pulling driveshaft's and get it ready to pull. Him and Andy were gracious enough to help me with the pickup by bringing up the 5-ton to pull it back with because it's a non-runner. I took a bunch of pictures...

    Towing Humvee via tow bar

    From what I have seen on google it looks like the Humvee is easy to pull via tow bar. I am only 2.5hrs from the location of where I need to pick up my M998 so I was considering doing this. I have a 7x18' trailer, but I don't have drive over fenders and don't want to alter the trailer. My tow...
