Does having a Turret add more value to the HMMWV? Turret owners... Could you live without it?

I'm curious - do you have any drawings of this turret support? I haven't been around enough HMMWVs to know what they look like or how big they are.

One thought I had was finding a 3D print shop with a big enough metal 3D printer to just make one - probably wouldn't require a minimum run either being the nature of additive manufacturing.
If these parts have been de-mill'd you might want to verify that reproduction of parts isn't an ITAR violation. We are ITAR certified and I know we are not allowed to make gun mounts, etc.

This is a good reminder on ITAR. Not only does the finished goods have to stay in the US, but so do the design files and anything related to how to make it. Also even giving it to someone who is not a US Citizen can be an ITAR violation, so definitely worth considering when remanufacturing parts like this.

I could have sworn the aluminum 11XX roof was several inches wider than the 10XX trucks as they are ECV series trucks. And thus the wider roof would create gaps in the door fitment.
No, the aluminum roof is standard width, the turret holes is larger until the “slewing ring” is installed into the hole that allows the bearing to be mounted into it.DDE9FEFE-2293-4450-A03F-DDD4D147D3A3.jpeg9F81C4D2-C8EE-4B2C-A347-CABA0ECF0F89.jpeg9F81C4D2-C8EE-4B2C-A347-CABA0ECF0F89.jpegDDE9FEFE-2293-4450-A03F-DDD4D147D3A3.jpeg
