    UPDATED: ORV title correction and VIN registration in Louisiana

    Vin stencil is a lifetime plate btw and will save you $. The old requirement for vin stencil starting with Q is no longer necessary; just the numbers. I believe the classic military plate has to be renewed. Only special plates in Baton Rouge can do a Vin Stencil. Local dmv can not. Local can...

    Pioneer rack mounting spot

    The pioneer tool rack fits on the tool box with the Jerry can holder. It sits longways along the tool box behind the Jerry Can holder. Both can co exist together. I have a custom non stock wheel chock bracket next to the jerry can bracket infront of the pioneer rack. Will try to post a picture...

    Humvee cooling issue

    If you had blow by into the water, you would overheat quickly even idling from my rebuilt engine sales rep days in another lifetime..... You would also have bubbles with the cap off watching the circulation.

    Pioneer rack mounting spot

    the hmmwv tools are the same and you can use those on the 5 ton rack pictured earlier. It is the same as the deuce and many others. The hmmwv have a bracket underneath the rear differential and clips to the frame so not likely to adapt easily. Many on here have also mounted the rectangular...

    Can you give more detail? Do you have a sf97 or is it titled in another state?

    I think you would be better served with the heater in the freeze out plug hole than the inline tank, imho

    La has a vin stencil law and a military plate law. Easy peasy more than most states. All done in Baton Rouge at the special and prestige plate unit.

    Mix and match tires

    I forgot to mention to make sure the holes for lugs are beveled on back of rim to flip them to use on rear. Some fmtv rims are only beveled on front. I run 2 fmtv style caiman wheels on front with run flats and 4 combat m939 wheels on rear.

    Mix and match tires

    Those fmtv wheels will bolt up. Just a tiny fraction different backspace that you will never notice. Save you a ton of work. Smaller tire will cost you a few miles top speed but I suspect your roads are just as bad as in New Orleans or Baton Rouge......

    m101 a2 cover bows and sideboards/headboards

    A great mod is to use 2 rear gates on the front instead of the one piece. Fits perfectly. Just requires 2 holes for the gate pins in the front of the bed and a hole on each side for the gates when folded back. makes it more aerodynamic when towing empty without a cover.
