    What did you do to your trailer today.

    Do you have any pictures? Sounds like we have the same specific version of M101.

    S788 on m1101 +

    Between an empty M1102 (w/ or w/o shocks) and a loaded genset trailer, I've found they pull better with weight on the torsion axles. The S788 ought to have a high CG but pull well. And if it's top heavy you can lower it!

    M116A2 Expedition Trailer Build

    Your project is looking good! I wish the M116s came with more space between the wheel wells so that S-250s (and sheets of plywood) could fit between them. Why they didn't improve this by the time the A2/A3 beds came out is beyond me.

    Rescued a M101

    I hope you'll consider saving the Civil Defense insignia on your tailgate. I feel like that's a very interesting part of history that doesn't really have a modern equivalent. For my peers (b. 1985) and those younger than me, we really came of age after the Cold War and during the OEF/OIF eras...

    S-788 in M101A3?

    That looks like an M103 instead of an M101A3, though. That trailer is noticeably larger than an M116-series frame. Not saying it won't fit...just that I don't think it'll look precisely like that photo.

    Another way to lower an M1101/M1102

    I'm about to attempt something along those lines. Trying to follow 1stDeuce's method, but I'll post whatever results I end up with.

    MTVR MK 30 Dump Truck Experience

    Keep a couple of those 277Cs in decent shape, will ya? I missed out on the last batch that came through but have been watching intently ever since. Glad it sounds like nothing got damaged that couldn't be replaced! I flew out of Atlanta on Saturday morning during a break in that weather...

    What did you do to your trailer today.

    Picked up an M1102 from a guy in Richmond back in September. Found a utility top on CL around Greensboro and discovered the seller was another MV enthusiast (Even said he'd owned a HET at one point). A little pricier than I wanted, but it was the correct height to sit inside of without...

    New M1101 Trailer Conversion

    "Squatting" might be overstating the issue. The attached image is from the recovery trip. I wasn't worried about hitting the bumpstops, but for having an empty trailer and empty bed I was surprised that it changed the stance of the truck as much as it did.

    New M1101 Trailer Conversion

    I have a first gen Tundra and an empty M1102 wants to squat it more than I like. :???: I'm considering adding a leaf to level things out and/or going to a customer rear bumper so that it's attached directly to the rear of the frame rails. Looking forward to any updates to the project.

    New M1101 Trailer Conversion

    Excellent project and write-up. On your brakes, what's your current plan? Are you going through them and just make sure they're free moving or actually replace them with electric (or electric-over-hydraulic)? Thanks.

    Back Up again from GP auction?

    If they know what's good for them they'll keep Jwade around after the transition.
