    ISO: M977 HEMTT crane seal kit or TM for crane

    Well I finally scored a halftrack. It's an M16 per the data plate and double thick frame. She's rough, rusty and missing a bunch of stuff but her bones are solid. Winch is there including the drive shaft and PTO. Once I cut all the piping and crap off, she'll look more like a halftrack.
