    M818 Turbo Addition

    I've been doing some mods over the past few months. It started with a radiator swap, that grew into a new water pump, belts & hoses..... and before long, a turbo, new exhaust & eventually Jakes. I got a turbo & manifold with the truck, so I thought it would be easy. It turns out the seals...

    Silicone sealer between HEMTT wheel halves

    Just ran into an issue where a previous owner put silicone sealer between the rim halves. I had the misfortune of trying to get them apart this weekend. After pulling & prying with no luck, I removed all the studs to allow less interference. Still they were not coming apart. I then tried to...

    Beadlocks for 16.00's

    Are the bead locks interchangeable for 14.00's & 16.00's on HEMTT or MRAP wheels? I can get the bead locks from 14.00's on MRAP wheels, & would like to use them on HEMMT wheels with 16.00's. Does anyone have the width dimensions for the Bead locks?

    Car ("Truck") covers for a 5 ton

    Started looking for a "car" cover for my truck since it will not fit in my garage. Has anyone found a good way to cover their vehicle to protect it from the elements? I looked at some tarps & most are cheap junk that may not last the winter or $1000 for something quality that is big enough to...

    Humorous drain plug sizing

    Has anyone noticed how the radiator drain is so small? It takes forever to drain 8 gallons of coolant out of a 1/4" hole. Pulling the lower hose did not look like a fun adventure... Took me all day to flush the system a few times to get it clean, even while using the second drain plug on the...
