    Buyer's Regret?

    all depends on what you want to do with it and what your total spend limit is. aftermarket seats, new soft doors, new top...probably about $3k. don’t think you can slap a turbo on a 6.2 Or turn the fuel pump up and think you’ll have something you can drive 70mph on the highway. the 6.2’s in...

    Buyer's Regret?

    you’ll be disappointed as a HMMWV owner if you don’t like strangers coming up to you and asking about it, little kids pointing to it saying “army truck” or just about everyone pointing, nodding, staring or waving at you. If your wife takes it out without you...she will get proposed to. Just...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    yes I used roller but that wasn’t the issue. It was making the 18oz and then the chopped mat make the radius’ To the flange (there‘s a 1” flange). First go around I had a tighter radius and it was a disaster. Second hand layup I modified the mold radius to a more gentle transition and it...

    Been wanting to do some fiberglass projects and decided the rear curtain would be as good a place as any to start. Have never worked with fiberglass before so the learning curve was steep. wanted to design something a little different by not having boxes over the rear seatbelts but wanted...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Got a couple Bestop Trailmax II seats installed. Used the existing driver’s frame (cut back and bottom springs off). welded a couple 1/4”t bar stock for mounting plates. A little double sided tape on cardboard with bolts in the hole locations leaves a nice imprint for drilling. Seat is a...

    Crimp tool and mods for packard connectors

    If you only have a few packard connections to make and don’t want to spend a bunch on a tool, I used this and it worked quite well. Round hole at bottom for female connectors and the arrow for males. It leaves a little “wing” but fits inside the plastic insert in the male connector. All...

    Thanks, that rim was an idea from other pics of guys here. Well, I couldn’t tell if the road noise was increased bc of the tread pattern over the incredibly loud engine noise and I’m sure the “ride quality“ is a little better bc of tires but honestly to really improve that you’ve got to change...

    Problem with my HMMWY

    An electrical circuit does not care how or how many points to earth it has. Clean the grounds in the truck AND put a harness in...won’t hurt a single thing and can actually help. Your house has at least 2 and probably 3 points to earth...all connected. Nothing wrong with it.

    acceleration problem

    My MOTO: check and eliminate the easy stuff first. I had exact same symptoms you describe and it was a leak in fuel line. Those are things you should check over anyway. Let us know what the solution ends up being.

    acceleration problem

    I had a similar issue, mine was a very small leak in fuel line under passenger side. Didn’t see a lot of fuel on ground when parked...but under acceleration it would lose power rapidly then surge. If you are seeing hard start as well...check all fuel lines. I found mine while someone was...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Been a couple of years since I owned one and local sheriff decided to sell their 2 (had just been sitting) so I bought both. Here’s one of them. This one is a bit of an electrical dumpster fire but we’ll get it sorted. going to keep one stock and the other...probably customize it a bit.

    What would you do: Selecting First HMMWV ?

    The broken half shaft...probably operator error. No BTM or just being stupid But could be indicative of other things wrong. These things can take a beating but rest assured there is always “something else” to fix. That’s part of the fun IMO. I have 2 of these and one of them decided to leave...
