    DAF-YA-126 Recovery

    What "wind up thing" are you talking about? They're a gas. If you're getting the one that was in the classifieds, congrats! It looks like a good one. I don't recall what all is needed on the brakes or what can be adapted. Sent from my E6910 using Tapatalk

    DAF-YA-126 Recovery

    My buddy still has the truck. He doesn't drive it because it blew a master cylinder seal and the parts are almost impossible to find. The death wobble turned out to be the tires. They were so out of round that it wasn't funny. We put new tires on and it turned into a really fun truck. Sent...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    The truck started the day as a faded green truck... It ended the day as a tan truck with 98G slapping most of the paint on the old beast. (It's younger than me... So I guess it isn't that old.) We used Colorpalace Premium matched to Rust-Oleum sand for easy touch-up. It will be interesting to...

    Steel Soldiers MV of the month 2017 - Feburary VOTE HERE!

    I purchased my 87' M35A2C at auction in Utah along with the 72' M44A2 (530C) Firetruck. How that happened was an all too familiar story, I am sure. Basically, I threw in two bids on two truck that were marked "Inoperable, parts missing, tow away." I was reasonably sure that I wasn't going to...

The recipe includes: 1 part rolled Toyota Tacoma with a Total Chaos long travel kit/Deaver rears 1 part M35 cab, fenders, hood, and front clip 1 part M1101 or M101 hull. a dash of plasma cutting a jigger of welding and a...

    Brakes and breaks. A tale of a trip cut short.

    Well, yesterday started as a normal day. The plan? To move the 530C that a coworker bought from me some time back. I had just finished putting a set of G177 from 98G on the truck, it looks fantastic and the ride quality in my tests around town proved to me that the truck handles and rides better...

    Trailers that can be hauled by a M48/M275

    I have been thinking more and more about putting a 5th wheel plate back on the 54'. Obviously, since the truck has been stretched forward and aft of the bogie it is no longer a true M-45, and with the 5th wheel plate on it won't fit into the category of a M48 because of the stretched wheelbase...
