    Current issue 900 or 1100 radials

    I have seen many videos on YouTube of mainly M149A2s still in current service. Most of the trailers no longer have NDCCs on them. Instead, it appears that they have radial tires. I don't believe they are G177s, although I am aware that some trailers did use them (I actually have an M149A2...

    M939A2 O ring question

    I have replaced O rings on several M939A2 rims. However, I came across a wierd situation where the O rings in my 1989 M925A2 are not the same as those on my M928A2, or any other A2 that I have owned previously. I believe this rim takes a 1/2" by 20" O ring while my other trucks use a thinner O...

    Need M105A3 moved from Houston, TX area to MD or NC

    I am thinking of buying an M105A3 from another member in the Houston area. I was hoping to find out if there is anyone coming northeast who could tow/haul it to either MD or NC (John Winslow's place). I'd be willing to pay for assistance.

    Air conditioning in my M925A2

    I found the correct A/C set up that goes into the M939A2 series trucks. Everything is stock military, except the box in the cab (the condenser unit in the cab is stock military and the controls are stock). The box had to be modified because I wanted to retain the original bench seat. The unit...
