    Charlie's Deuce Thread

    If it helps, I just measured from the bottom of the seam that separates the top from the back of a vinyl cab cover to the bottom of the loop. That measurement was 25 inches. That cab cover was taken off of a deuce because it needs to have the stitching redone on the rear window (and I'm...

    Dodge 12 Valve vs. Industrial?

    The 24 valve in the heavy duty package will develop over 300 HP, BUT the electronics are proprietary to Dodge-RAM, which makes it VERY Expensive to change around.

    Charlie's Deuce Thread

    Ranger Qualified is the best path for promotion of Army Officers currently. Even if their primary specialty will never get them close to a battlefield. Just another ticket to punch.

    M275, 36, 342..

    The deuce M36's have a 17 foot bed, the long bed five tons have a 20 foot long bed, the 814 model. Member EMD367 owns one, it's nickname is "The Long Easy". He also has to wear two watches when traveling as the front and back of the truck are in different time zones. I have an M36 with an...

    Charlie's Deuce Thread

    Put a larger sacrificial tarp over it to keep the sun and rain from getting to it. I generally keep my cargo covers in a container unless using them, and have almost finished converting my fleet to hard top cabs. I have a tan cargo cover that was on for a year, where it has been exposed to the...

    Charlie's Deuce Thread

    Do NOT leave canvas/vinyl tops on 24/7/365. They will deteriorate if in the sun or exposed to extremes of weather. If you can park in a garage, away from the blazing sun, the pouring rain and the howling winds, you can get decades of use. Exposed to the elements it will be two years to show...

    AS-1729/VRC for CB Band

    Correct, the only 'power' is the radio signal that you will be transmitting through the coax. The other cable did transmit power to the stepper motor to change the SWR for different frequency ranges in the 30-75 MHz range. You will not be doing that, because the frequency range that you will...

    AS-1729/VRC for CB Band

    The base has the antenna coax straight from the radio - the SWR meter goes in that line. The other cable is strictly for changing the frequency range from the radio itself, but that can also be done with the base itself, mechanically. Once set for the lowest SWR, you simply leave it alone, and...

    Cable uses

    First one, the four small pins are the ground wires, four big ones are the three phases and the neutral. I have a cable like that without the connectors. Main wires were 1 ga, four smaller ground wires were each 8 ga. YMMV.

    Looking for videos of your truck in military parades or rescues of civilians

    Couple of links to the 43rd Columbia Veterans Day Parade. MVCSC was #18 in this years parade, while Congressman Wilson (riding in a HMMWV) was #38.

    How do you secure your vehicle at shows? Armor hatches - Safety related

    I stand by my vehicle at shows and let people in the cab (deuce) one at the time to have their picture taken. Even have a short ladder to the kids to climb up and down. If I need to do something else (get food, use 'facilities', etc.) the ladder goes between the seat and the steering wheel and...

    I have an antenna that needs a radio...

    Adapters are available to fit almost any antenna cable to the antenna base. The mechanical part is easy, the electrical (impedance and SWR) is a little more involved. For that, you need to find an 'elmer' local to your location. That can be done by finding someone in a local amateur radio club.

    I have an antenna that needs a radio...

    That is for an older radio type (60-90's) than current issue. An RT-524 mounted in the cab would be appropriate, but there is a fly-in-the-ointment problem with using them to actually transmit. The only legal frequency for amateur radio is six meters (50 MHz). If it is just for show, then a...

    Second EUC speed?

    Once TSC has you in the system, approval usually takes less than a week, with COVID, it's been a little longer.

    Can soft tops be painted? Where can new tops be found?

    They can be painted with elastometric paint (rubberized stuff that is flexible, such as 'CoolSeal'), then get an overcoat of the correct BEHR paint from Home Depot. The difficulty of finding soft tops is what made me go to all hard top trucks.
