    1999 FMTV 6x6 Crane Truck

    I beg to differ! They do not have 2 speed transfer cases and the first gear is not very low (8:1). These military vehicles were designed to be "fleet vehicles" and groups of the them were always followed by an Oshkosh 8x8 wrecker. Look at any medium heavy duty 4x4 military truck from any other...

    Checking out a 1017a soon what should I look for

    I honestly know next to nothing about Mercedes MED-HD trucks, but know about DOD testing of equipment because of designs I have done for them. They beat the living crap out of equipment!!! I would try to find specifically, a Mercedes truck mechanic to help you! What may seem like a minor...

    I'm not talking "Kommando Spezialkräfte", but pretty darn close, how would you build your next RIG?

    JUST SAY NO! To CRACK! It detracts ones attention into building your KILLER PERFECT RIG (wink, wink, nod... your well service truck) and it clutters the yard and probably piss's off your wife (it sure does mine). ! Not that I am the one to preach! Hey Shortbus, please post up more pictures of...

    International 4700 Ambo build

    I suspect that your truck has stud rather than hub pilot axles... If that is the case then it is VERY IMPORTANT that you chamfer the holes on the inside of your M35A3 rims for your back axle and spare!!!!!!!

    Going to be Unimoged

    That is some excellent information and math Lian! GOOD JOB! You have to love Mercedes for their attention to detail. Working on American trucks that were intended to only be 2 wheel drive and modified to 4X4 leaves us Gringo's in the dark compared to Unimog "engineering".

    Going to be Unimoged

    If I were to guess... I would say that they feel better mounting the mass to a structure that is rigidly connected to the frame ( like the cab) as opposed to the composite "box's" (habitats) & "floating" sub-frames that they fabricate (aka: cover your back end). I don't know squat about...

    Going to be Unimoged

    To each their own! A MPT 365/80 R20 mounted on beadlock rims weights 191 kg's (420 lbs), then add the mounting structure lets say 46 kg's (100 lbs), then the lifting davit 23 kg's (50 lbs) = 260 kg's ( 570 lbs) minimum. Add that kind of weight to the top of a structure that is not designed...

    FYI- BAJA NORTE VIOLENCE.

    Admittedly, I don't know "squat" about mainland west Mexico above Nayarit! I learned from people that were much older and wiser than my punkass self in the late 70's to "waste no time" driving north for the border, keep your head down, and speed up for the border ASAP! OKAY! I give up and am...

    FYI- BAJA NORTE VIOLENCE.

    I believe I could "paint" a close to perfect scenario of what happened, and who the "players" were/ are (victims, the perps, the "locals", the local cops, and the "Judi's" ( Federal Police)! AND that it will not bring the 3 healthy young men back to life! I had intimated in my past posts that...

    Disclaimer: After being banned once, then threatened to be "perma-banned" 2 more times after that... I have learned to not just go out and express my true feeling here on ExPo anymore!

    FYI- BAJA NORTE VIOLENCE.

    That is the funniest stuff I've heard in months! It is tough for most of us Gringo's to understand how "Baja" works! The first thing that those who desire to get "the lay of the land", is to have to grasp of what main land Mexico's term for the Baja peninsula is... "LA FRONTERA"! The "wild...
