    New Owner - Where to start?

    Welcome to the madness! Looks like you got a good list started but I would add some maintenance. Change all the fluids, flush the cooling system (may have to be done several times). The TMs are your friends (though they may not seem it at first). Enjoy!

    Air intake removal question

    So it's a bolt that screws into a bolt wedged into a hexagon in the body I agree with Tobash, cut off the heads to remove the intake and then work on how to get the remnants out. Either way good luck.

    Found my fuel leak. Only leaks when I fill up, now I know why Someone drilled thru the floor and into the tank near the filler neck. A 1/4 x 20 screw screwed into the hole tightly, then put some fuel resistant sealant over that. At least I got new gaskets and freshened up the fuel system...

    Newbie Fuel System Issues

    Not saying those are the cause of your problem, just trying to help you identify what they are to assist in the troubleshooting process. I do not believe those lines are the cause of your issue. From what you have described you are thinking there could be debris in the tank, that could cause...

    M998 speedometer

    You'll know when the clamp goes on how close you are. The clamp ends drop into the quarter recesses and the bolt lines up, if not you can use the clamp to turn the pinion housing the last bit to get the bolt to go in. Enjoy the project and welcome to the madness!

    M998 speedometer

    Just went thru this same issue this week. There is an alignment indicator on the housing (Pinion Adapter) that fits into the transfer case and another mark the case. It took 4 tries for me to get it aligned. Basically if you have the orange 37 tooth gear you align the 36-38 mark to the dot...

    Humvee audio systems: What have you added / done to your rig ?

    Tried a Bluetooth setup and was disappointed with the results. Liked the idea but found the speaker I chose to have insufficient volume to overcome interior noise levels, Allowed the iphone to be my jukebox, could only hear it at a stoplight. But I would shy away from this setup because I...

    One of our site vendors sells one. I wanted a few more options and had a weekend and a welder (and was unsupervised). Welcome to the madness!

    Just took a closer look at ur post and saw that you flopped the dog ears around so they tuck in vice out. If you are planning to add a hard top, that's forward thinking 'cause you'll need the room above the hand hold for the front roof mount.

    Welcome to the group! Looks like you already have a good list for projects. I would add some maintenance to the list, change fluids, flush radiator then check for leaks and squeaks. Your list may change based on what you find after spending a few quality hors with your new rig. Welcome to...
