    Steel Soldiers MV of the YEAR 2023 - VOTE HERE

    The M37 was used by the Israeli Defense Forces during the Six Day War. The white and black hood markings were to allow air assets to identify friendlies on the ground.

    Any ideas of current values for a nice M571?

    I sold an extremely nice one in 2016 for $4000. There’s more on the market now after the demill code was changed.

    Steel Soldiers MV of the month 2023 - June VOTE HERE!

    Well it looks like a limited campaign event. I’ll start things off with the 1954 M-37 “IshMater.” This was an eBay purchase because the wife wanted a mid-fifties Power Wagon and I thought the M-37 was way cooler. It came to us in OD green and was going to be returned to that until we discovered...

    Not sure why the pic loaded like that but I’ll wait for the campaign thread to post better ones.

    Need Help on M151A2 re-wiring with Heater Connection Switch

    Last time the OP was here was 2005 so I doubt he’ll reply.

    Hello from Texas

    What is it you're seeking advice on (so we can direct you to the correct "experts")?

    New M151A2

    That's a beautiful MUTT. Quite a difference between the "before" and "after" photos. Good luck with finishing the restoration!

    Soft Top Ripped Loose While Driving.

    Any place that does boat tops can fix it for you. Likely just the thread came apart and the wind then tepee'd the top. I had the same thing happen to my 923 the day I picked it up. If you lost the plastic channel that slides in the top of the windshield frame they can probably find something...

    What's the deal with importing American-made armor?

    Take it apart. I believe you can import pieces just not the vehicle as a whole (I am not an import expert so do you own diligence).

    The real cost of armor?

    A very large bank account

    Towing an Off Road / Overland FMTV

    I'm not trying to be argumentative but my 1970 M35A2 required minimal maintenance to stay roadworthy and reliable. My 1998 LMTV took constant maintenance and wasn't reliable for more than 50 miles without something ELSE going wrong with it. It wasn't that it was in poor condition to begin with...

    Towing an Off Road / Overland FMTV

    This is one of the reasons I sold my M1078. I spent 30 minutes trying to get out of line for a parade because one of the rear brake canisters blew a seal and kept dumping the air and locking the brakes up. That was after the fan clutch exploded on me going down I-10 at 55mph 150 miles from...

    Seth actually put a lot into that truck besides the interior of the box. I think the biggest issue is how much folks are willing to drop into it. A LMTV is like a boat, a hole in the water you pour money into. I think the majority of the people who have the finances to really make one of...
