    I might be a little crazy – 4,000 mile M1079 recovery Illinois to Alaska

    You have more than your fair share of testicular fortitude for such an ambitious journey with an untested military truck. In my mind it would fall under the proposal of a friend that tells you "I'm taking up wing suit flying, what do you think?" In any event, I salute you Sir. Mark

    OK Oklahoma Insurance -- State Farm Fail -- Hagerty for the Win

    I had Plymouth Rock for the M998 and Geico for my other cars and motorcycle but Geico doubled my cost from last year with no changes from me so I dropped them fast. I went with Progressive for my reg stuff and Hagerty for my M998 and 93 Mercury Cougar show car and combined for 900 bucks for...

    My Dmax EGTs

    Yeah 1400 for a bit of time is rolling the dice. What's the max RPMs on the Duramax? My son has a 2003 5.9 and he tries to keep it under 3200 RPMs but it will obviously go higher. Mark

    Twin Turbo V12 M998

    Obviously that is more than enough torque at a lower rpm. How many speeds is the tranny andObviously that is more than enough torque at a lower rpm. How many speeds is the tranny and do you happen to know the stock converter stall speed? I love the initiative. What's the rpm limit of that...

    Glow Plug Replacement

    I loved the old two stroke Detroits. Easy to work on, made good power and were easy as hell to work on. The 4-53T was compact made good power and the weight and height reasonable. Mark Don't get me going on the POS 5.7 diesels. I have some experience with them and you have to wonder what...

    Glow Plug Replacement

    This is why it's a must use never seize on the treads on the new glow plugs to help prevent this issue. This system is such a bad design and causes uncontrollable cursing for all who have to deal with them. Why couldn't they have used a grate system like on the Cummins. Just dumb. Mark

    New HMMWV owner with questions.

    I've heard that too with the MTRs but all I can say is I've had mine for six years now with zero issues and they look like new. I have two 100% spares in case I do have issues. Mark

    New HMMWV owner with questions.

    The group 31s will fit and so will group 29. The group 29s are mainly for farm use but of you're on the budget it may be the way to go. I would absolutely go with surplus 24 bolt wheels with the 37" MTRs for some good deals. My .02 cents. Mark Group 29 battery

    '86 M998 Humvee issue with headlights and turnsignals

    My turn signal switch is the newer LED type. Maybe I should try the older steering wheel turn signal switch as I would prefer LED all around. Mark

    '86 M998 Humvee issue with headlights and turnsignals

    I found with mine I have leds in the rear (bulb replacement to leds) and incandescent bulbs up front was the only way to get mine to work properly. Flasher would not work with all leds unfortunately. Mark

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    It's a shame is It's a pita to swap over to a new wheel.
