    Generator bit me.

    I have two MEP803A's on a trailer with transfer switch. I do not have the generators grounded and was temporarily running a water pump. I switched to the #2 generator on the transfer switch to send power to the pump and when switching my thumb inadvertently made contact with the indicator bezel...

    Fan Clutch Question

    The fan on my truck engages automatically when first starting for about 15-20 seconds, then disengages. With the air system pressurized, engine off, key on, when engaging the clutch manually, the fan physically moves in towards the engine. However, when sending air manually with the engine...

    A Few Questions

    Seems my rear axles are very noisy, especially when decelerating. Is this normal? Also, what temperatures should the hubs run after driving a bit? Last, what engine oil pressure and coolant temp is normal once the vehicle is warmed up to operating temp? Thank you.

    MRAP Brakes

    Our local Sheriff's Department has an MRAP, and the brakes will not release. They've contacted me because they know I have military stuff, and because we work with them on training missions from time to time. They are telling me the air pressure will only build to 118 psi. Where is the...

    How well does AC in the MTVR work?

    Thinking of installing AC in my MTVR at some point after it's arrival. I have the Red Dot AC in my M925A2 and on those really hot summer days, it just doesn't do a lot to cool the cab down. It helps, but you'll never reach over to turn it down because it's getting too cool. So, question for...

    ECU Flash

    I've heard, don't know, maybe some of the more erudite scholars here will, that a MRAP will run about 80 mph. Can the MK23 be flashed to remove the speed limiter? Not that I want to go 80 mph, but for example having a little extra kick perhaps in a passing situation.

    Leaf Spring Modification

    Has anyone reduced the number of leaf springs on their 5 ton to help the ride? I don't use mine for hauling anything of significant weight.

    Globe GTTU202-30-20 T/A Equipment Trailer Wheel Swap

    I think I remember Wes telling me you can convert these trailers to dual wheels instead of the massive single wheel and tire setup. Is it possible, and if so does it work well? @simp5782

    Thanks Wes!

    Once again, Wes comes through for me. From delivering my 5 ton from St. Louis Missouri to Perry Florida, dropping in out of the blue one day and turning my fuel up, selling me some very nice 16:00/20 tires at a great price, to taking the time to help trouble shoot several issues. Thank you...
