    That green case is almost certainly a Stinger case, I have one myself and it looks identical to that including the latches. (I don’t have a Stinger, I have a case!)

    What is the highest mileage hmmwv anyone has encountered

    Impossible to know, given how the speedos get swapped routinely by the military. I’ve seen a couple with 2,000 miles that looked like they’d been to the moon and back.

    What are you using for a 24Volt trickle charger?

    I’ve installed that port extension (from another maker) in my boat and it requires a big hole - NoCo shows it’s a 2” diameter port. You’d do better to use a 12 gauge extension cable run through the vehicle and terminating at the front or rear bumper with a normal AC plug dangling there, then...

    What are you using for a 24Volt trickle charger?

    Duh. Why didn't I think of that? I have the same thing on my boat. I am totally abandoning my original plan of 24 volt charge via slave. I will get the NOCO 2 bank charger, should I get the 5 or 10 amp version? Amazon.com: NOCO Genius GEN5X2, 2-Bank, 10-Amp (5-Amp Per Bank) Fully-Automatic...

    M1165A1. RetiredWarhorses did the install and did the usual amazing work that he is known for.

    Does having a Turret add more value to the HMMWV? Turret owners... Could you live without it?

    I love mine, the best addition I made to the truck. I use it for shooting, yes, but also for other things like sitting a skeleton up there and driving in our local Halloween fest parade. The kids also love to pop their heads out.

    WTB: M197 mount for M240/M249

    I checked there, as far as I can tell they only have the travel lock and not the mount. I will call tomorrow to be sure.

    What are you using for a 24Volt trickle charger?

    Also I am looking for a 20 foot slave cable to jump a dead HMMWV as my friend's 1165 was dead the other day and we had to resort to charging each battery on a 12 volt charger, which took forever. If anyone knows of a Nato one cheaper than the $225 or so on ebay please shoot me a line.

    What are you using for a 24Volt trickle charger?

    I am running on Hawker Plus 6TLs that I am pretty sure are AGM.

    What are you using for a 24Volt trickle charger?

    Pulsetech HD pro is $4K, so that's out! And solar won't work as the garage I store in has no windows.

    What are you using for a 24Volt trickle charger?

    Dredging up a topic that's been discussed here before but it looks like two of the models people like are now discontinued or unavailable. So I am looking for a reco on a 24 Volt trickle charger to keep the HMMWV batteries charged over the winter (I don't expect to be driving much until the...

    Vehicle hit in an accident

    The lessons here are: 1. collision insurance is a good investment on more expensive models, given that parts for a HMMWV cost an arm an a leg 2. a dashcam, or even better a 4-channel DVR recording system (front, rear, sides) pays for itself with one incident like this. The red explorer could...

    M1165 Humvee now recovered! from Scottsdale AZ

    Well think of the damage and missing parts as your deductible and also a painful but not overly-expensive lesson on getting insurance coverage. I'm glad the story had a happy ending.

    M1165 Humvee now recovered! from Scottsdale AZ

    Two things: 1. Ask your friend to claim on his shop insurance, and pay him for any premium increase 2. All thieves should be shot
