    Caiman MRAP wheels on a LMTV

    I have heard / read that the Caiman MRAP aluminum wheels will work on a LMTV. I am skeptical since the LMTV is lug centric and the MRAP is hub centric. Has anyone successfully done this?

    Hub servicing.

    I just serviced the hubs on my 06 and was shocked (but not surprised) to find almost no oil in them, loose wheel bearings, backlash way to tight, way to much of the wrong sealant. This truck was serviced by the military just 2600 miles before I got it. Don't assume anything is done or done right...

    How to balance a Goodyear 395/85/20

    I have 5 new tires that refuse to be balanced. The best one only wanted 17 oz, maybe normal. The worst wanted 88 oz, kinda absurd. Spoke to Goodyear distributor and was told that if a MV/t needed more than 14 oz then it was a bad tire and could never be balanced. I believe them. But why and what...

    All Military Vehicles banned from road in Maryland

    As of 1/1/2019 but just now fully enforced. If you buy a MV in Maryland you will not be able to get tags for it.

    No doubt someone here has already done this. The PPM on a stock A1R is set at 62619. Reducing this number makes the speedometer read higher. I roughly figured that 45398 would be very close to correct but it seems to read to high. Any one done this? And yes I know I can tweak this with a GPS but...

    A1R Warning about gauges

    If you have an A1R do not try to test the voltmeters on dash. They are not voltmeters, they are indicators driven by CAN data from a ECM or ECU. Do you know where that unit is located in the truck??

    Gen2 a/c wiring

    I have a 06 A1R and wonder if at least the power supply connector is in the harness of the truck for the A/C unit. The blower and lights connector is the same one as just the heater uses, but it also needs 24 volt from the PDP. I have the schematic for the unit but since it is an A1R nothing...

    Front bumper wiring

    Hi all, Does anyone have a A1R? Would you please look at the air switch behind the left front step. I need to know the numbers from the tag on those wires and where they go to. I thought they were in the bumper harness with the wires for the lights but now that I have used up all those wires I...

    Transmission function

    I noticed today that when I put the trans in neutral and come to a stop that at near zero mph the trans locks the driveshafts, holding the truck with no brakes applied. 2006 A1R. Normal? And how reliable?

    Brakes do not release

    OK, front service glad hand has a vent on the cover and I know it is stuck closed. When using brakes they will not release unless the cover is removed. Is this normal and is the check valve vent the only problem? Why is there pressure there at all? Tom

    The price of a/c

    Hi, The price of adding A/C may have just gotten way cheaper if you are a little crazy and also mechanical minded. You can purchase the 33070 BTU A/C and heat unit for a MRAP, strip it for parts and fit it all very neatly in the LMTV heater box. I am almost finished and have all the functions of...

    Volt meter wrong and batteries die

    Now I know that sounds simple but, 2006 A1R 7000 miles total. 4 new batteries charged and installed. 24 v meter on dash shows 24, 12 v meter on dash shows right at the yellow/green and constantly moves up and down while meter on low set of batteries shows constant 14 volt. Meter on high set...
