    air horn intake

    Hate to bring up an old thread, but I just bought a hmmwv air horn online. I am hoping to make a cold air intake out of it for my m1028. I am wondering if it will fit my j code intake, even with the bolts front to rear, rather than side to side. FYI they are $35 dollars on eBay with $15 shipping.

    How much weight has your cucv hauled?

    Cool thanks for the link iceman! I realy feel that if I do a turbo, I first need a bigger injection pump, along with a decent set of headers, and if I can get 300 hp I would be happy. Lol if there's one thing I know about engines they need to breathe as well as exhale, then you can give them...

    My 1028A1 project almost done.

    I'm in mn but would love to find a decent place that would do good work at a reasonable price. It doesn't have to get painted, just fixed. I like getting creative with rattle cans. All the places I've talked to out here in southern mn want 3k for the work and it's not that bad of rust. I could...

    6.2 diesel power

    I second that Dok! Was wondering why I bought my m1028; until I went in the deepest, nastiest, mud infested hole I could find. Then it was as graceful as the fifth symphony when the 6.2 idled along; all locked out in four low in mud up past the frame rails! Ah who needs a radio when you got...

    M1028 vs M1008

    That's sexy rusty a 383 must get the tires roast'n[thumbzup]. Ha ha I still love the clanky, pingy, throw the rod out of the side sound of a 6.2 tho. Plus averaging 16mpg with town driving on the way to work in a 1 ton pickup is still pretty good.

    How much shim after 4" lift?

    Cool what size tires are those truck1? I also own a 1984 m1028 and am debating the lift kit options as of because I bought some Chinese xzl clones that are 36" tall by 9" wide and will fit on the stock 16 inch rims.

    CUCV M1008 trailer hitch

    I know it's just cash is tight, and all I need it for is to pull maybe a 1,700 lb boat at the most combination with trailer. Other wise all the heavy loads get tugged on the pintle, my dad owns a nice pulling 6,000 lb car trailer that has the pintle ring set at the right hight for both of our...

    M1028 vs M1008

    I see how it is rusty. No love for the 6.2? Lol I'm a cummins guy myself but for the price of rebuilding one you could go and get slightly used crate 6.5 they sell on gov planet sometimes full mechanical let me remind you. Lol cucvs remind me of lawn mowers, when the motor blows up its cheaper...

    CUCV M1008 trailer hitch

    Wow go be a troll some where else like pirate Marcus, not all of us have the money to waste on a class 5 hitch. Besides I tow a skid steer on the stock pintle just fine, and also hauled two cars five hundred miles on it too. Your post is a sign of what's wrong with this country. Every one has...

    I hauled a Ford Explorer on a 6,000 lb car trailer on the stock swivel pintle to wall SD (about 500 miles away from Olivia and a Ford F-150 back on the same trailer and had no problems other than having to run the heat while towing the explorer in the hills between murdo and wall because it was...

    CUCV Military Tires VS Civilian Tires???

    How wide would that be? I currently have 265/85 r16 stt's and I love them but I like my 6.2 and don't feel like replacing it and with my 1028 as one of my daily drivers I need to find a way to lower the Rpms. If my calculations are correct I will have only forty more rpms at 65 with the 36's...
