    Adventure Driven's photos and videos of their M1079

    Yes, I'm still around, though not on SS often. Only green I have now is a compact JD tractor :sneaky:... Sadly, I'm not in the market I helped a friend buy an 803a generator recently through some of my contacts and I still keep in touch with the guy who bought my M1078. I miss seeing some of...

    Adventure Driven's photos and videos of their M1079

    Wow, great find! I always wanted a 1079, but not at over $200K. I'm sure it's worth it and I followed much of Seth's build, but wow... Oh to be the guy with $200K plus for a toy

    M-917 20 Ton Dump Recovery

    FrontierAcres has a LMTV but no towbars. A M-1078 is probably a bit light to be flat towing this monster anyway. We used a Ford Explorer as our chase vehicle LOL.

    M-917 20 Ton Dump Recovery

    Ok, I owe you guys a better summary. I had 3-4 paragraphs typed up Sunday, and the server logged me off when I went to attach photos, and it was all lost. I got busy and didn’t take the time to re-type. The good good news is, we were able to drive the truck home. My Son originally went with...

    M-917 20 Ton Dump Recovery

    Helped member FrontierAcres recover this truck last weekend after it only made it 1/2 way home on the original attempt. These are “big” trucks! I plan to help go over the truck to get it operational and reliable. I think we have a pretty solid unit to start with.

    M1078 Towing M1101

    Did an 1101 recovery with the M-1083 last summer. Everything hooked up fine

    Put my LMTV to work today.

    Did a bit of similar hauling last October. I loaded several loads by hand. They were small trees, but it was still a lot of work.

    New M1089 FMTV owner

    It may not be recommended or condoned, but I took off several hoses from the PCU behind the passenger kick panel and sprayed some silicone lube into the unit. I felt that moisture had made its way in there and corroded things a bit. It seemed to help the solonoids on that unit cycle better for...

    I guess it is about time I introduced myself and a couple questions.

    Safe travels! Another member bought my M-1083 back in November. He drove it from TN to California. It can be done. We spent half of a day going over things and getting him ready. I think he had fun.

    Mounting a snow plow on a LMTV 1078 First Post

    Admittedly it was a good episode. I took this snapshot of my hotel TV screen the night it aired. :goodjob:

    Mounting a snow plow on a LMTV 1078 First Post

    Yeah, I wondered about that when I saw that show. I always saw that angled plate under the bumper as a “skid” plate more than something structural. Basically to keep brush, etc from getting hung up in the radiator & fan. Granted it is a very heavy gauge skid plate... but needed on a vehicle of...

    hmmwv tachometer installation

    I had a pretty good lot of NOS tachs about 18 months ago (149 to be exact). It took me a year, but they are all sold. You may have success finding one on the big “e” auction site that rhymes with “pay”

    Mounting a snow plow on a LMTV 1078 First Post

    I found this today in Evansville, IN. This was all the closer I could get. It looks like the ANG units have figured out a way to mount a commercial plow!

    Mep-803A turns off slow

    No, not normal. You may want to have a moderator move this post to the Auxiliary Equipment section. All the generator discussions are there. My first thought is a sticky linkage on the fuel solenoid. You may want to lubricate and make sure it operates freely.

    New guy in Tennessee with a couple questions
