    Greaseable polyurethane sway bar bushings

    I appreciate the speed in which these bushings got to me. I attached a photo of what one of old bushings off of my projects LMTV look like compared to the new ones. I plan on installing the zerk grease fittings that came with the bushings as well. They look great! Thanks Guido!

    What have you done to your FMTV or LMTV today

    Started hauling spring chinook salmon adults from the Lyle Adult Trap on the lower Klickitat River to the hatchery 40 miles upriver. Tank is 500 gallons and can handle up to 35 live adult salmon safely.

    Mounting a snow plow on a LMTV 1078 First Post

    We used the plow with a cement block chained on the bed last winter. Worked great, especially on the triple switchback road down to the hatchery, steepest decline is at 22%. We've had a Henderson sand spreader at the site for 7 years (came from Fairchild AFB as excess property), and just...

    Plowing snow this week

    First day of plowing yesterday and already racked up a booboo. Chain length on passenger rear wheel caught the collar bolt on the air chamber spinning it plus 90 degree to the rear, snapping three air fittings. Learning curve again this year on excess chain length on tire chains. We haven't put...

    Mounting a snow plow on a LMTV 1078 First Post

    This phase of the plow LMTV is completed. Crossing mts between Yakima Valley and Klickitat River, stopped to take a few photos. My buddy Milo from Milo's Body Shop wired the lights and controls, and bolted wings to both ends of the plow. Wings are Snow-Dogg (?) attachments that matched up well...

    Mounting a snow plow on a LMTV 1078 First Post

    We have a surplus older sand/salt spreader from the AFB in Spokane years ago that will get chained down on the bed. The spreader is another project to get running, but as weight its good enough. We will run chains on all tires as there are several steep grades to keep clear of snow...

    Cool show and photos of the build...did they use CAD drawings to design this subframe mount? We pretty much looked at the pictures that midnightduramax posted and thought those lined up well with what materials we have on hand (big thank you to midnightduramax!). Hope you get those drawings...

    MidnightDuramax, I would appreciate the dimensions you used for the subframe, and will thank you for any pics you can post. I am putting a parts list together and am rounding up metal stock for this project. My goal is to have this plow in working order by this summer. We got our collective...

    Mounting a snow plow on a LMTV 1078 First Post

    Hi MidnightDuramax, did you get this wiring issue figured out? I have a M1078 and just acquired a Fisher plow, like the ones Arrowhead sells to the military. This is a work vehicle that we are working on and the next steps are mocking up a subframe mount similar to what you had to do, and wiring...
