    M939A2 hood undercoating

    Probably a good bet because the fenders have not had the same issues. So what do you think, pull the foam and use dynamat instead?

    FL Any experiences with titles for a M35A2 ( obtaining or having one transfered over to your name)

    I'm in Florida and have titled, registered and insured probably a dozen M35A2s (restored and bobbed ones) and a half dozen various 5 tons. If the vehicle has a Florida title it's simply filling out this paperwork below and mailing a check to Tallahassee. If you don't have a title DM me and...

    M939A2 hood undercoating

    Yeah, I'm willing to bet money more than a couple of those spots are going to be big old rust holes once I start digging. If it was regular rust I'd just treat, paint, and be done but I'm not looking to repair holes in the hood because I fully expect other spots to just keep popping up over...

    M939A2 hood undercoating

    So the hood on my M932A2 tructor has seen better days. It's starting to get some pretty big rust bubbles in more than a few spots. It's weird because the rest of the truck is immaculate, especially since it was a super low mile military refurb when I bought it. I assume there was an issue...

    Opinion on towing capacity

    M931/M932, M923/M925 converted to a tractor or a M915/M916 are all good choices and would handle the load well with much better power and braking capabilities than that on an M35. The least expensive of the options would be M931, next is converted M923, and then the M915 and M916 are the more...

    Michelin XZL vs Michelin XML vs Michelin XL vs Goodyear AT-3A vs Goodyear AT-2A any others that are 14.00 or larger that are any good?

    Those Pirellis DOT date code is 2016. The Continentals listed DOT date code is 2018. I've previously asked on SS about the Pirellis and no one seems to have much information or experience on having run them on a truck. From what I've heard the Continentals tread depth isn't as deep as some...

    Did the military use run flats in any M939A2?

    Does anyone know where I can purchase the run flat lubricant or an inexpensive alternative? thanks

    Did the military use run flats in any M939A2?

    What I saw was without the lubrication, in a run flat (emergency situation) the tires will last 1 mile. With lubrication, in the same situation the tires will last 30 miles. I don’t remember what size tires/vehicles this applied to but I’ll try to find the literature again and post it on here...

    Did the military use run flats in any M939A2?

    Looks like I need 5 tubes of lubricant per tire. I’m not having much luck finding any online. Any idea who might have some or is there a more cost effective alternative, because the recommended lube is listed at $35-$50 a tube

    Did the military use run flats in any M939A2?

    I was able to pick some 3 piece run flats from Feltz. Seems like there’s some sort of lube on some of them. Is this lubricant necessary for anything (heat dissipation like the rubber 1 piece run flats) or is it just aid in ease of installation?

    Do you know anyone besides Feltz that carries the Hutchinson run flats?

    Did the military use run flats in any M939A2?

    Yeah, I knew the gun trucks ran run flats but they weren't exactly a standard truck. I've never dealt with any of the Frankenstein ROPS trucks so I was unaware they had them but it makes sense. Anyone every retro-fit their trucks with them or is the PITA mounting and balancing them too big of...

    Farm Truck

    That's a sharp truck and probably less expensive than a M929, you just need to paint the dump OD green to match and you're all set.

    Did the military use run flats in any M939A2?

    I'm 99% sure they didn't but does anyone know if the military ran run flat 14.00R20 tires on any of its standard M939A2 trucks?

    Thoughts on Pirelli 14.00R20 tires

    Are you talking about re-cap or re-treaded tires?

    M813 Or M35A2?

    I've owned numerous M35A2, M813. and M939. The 813 was the easiest to bob because everything is simply bolted on. The M35A2 is a PITA because they used rivets and you have to grind or torch them out. If you add hydraulic or air assist power steering to the M35A2 it's a much friendlier drive...

    Thoughts on Pirelli 14.00R20 tires

    I'm looking for a pair of new or NOS 14.00R20 steer tires for my M939A2 tructor. I currently have Michelin XZL all the way around but am running into the issue of not being able to find any NOS XZLs that aren't a small fortune. That coupled with the fact that I've never really loved that the...
