Its alive!!!!

Sorry, but I didnt have my camera with me, but my Project 6x6 Off road "recovery vehicle" is RUNNING!!!!! The engine ( 2 stroke turbo charged detroit) sounds like a BEAST!. I mounted 37" Goodyear MTR's on it, so no duallies in the rear, but Im happy with how well it drives! Top speed is around 45 mph, and low range, Im pretty sure, will rip anything I hook up to apart. I went thru some washes and some pretty steep climbs, without ANY issues. This thing articulates VERY well, so Im not going to mod the springs. Had some problems with the air brakes not disengaugeing, and since Im not very experienced with them, I beat them with a hammer until they released. No issues since. Just had to post up. Next time I will have pics!

YEP!
If you cant fix it with a Hammer, you have an electrical problem.

Well, when I do it, I can send you the video, via snail mail, or whatever, and you can be in charge of the posting of it.

Yeah! I left early this AM, and went to work on it. The M-37 is a 4x4:

Im not sure what the designation for the 6x6 is. I'll have to check.
The M-37, I hate to say, used to be my favorite off roader. It goes ANYWHERE. WOT in low range is about 1 mph. The 6x6, however, may end up being my ALL TIME favorite off roader. The thing moves effortlessly up hills. ANd the SOUND is AWSOME! I need to install a snorkle on it, and run a different exhaust, but those are just nit picks. My Brother is useing it for cutting fire wood, hence the chain saws in the pics, and he is going to go thru the brakes for me, and do some other things. I just need to get some more time off work so I can get some action pics of it.
As you can see, one of the HUGE benafits of owening an old military vehicle, is: No worry about body damage!

Thats not it, Frank. Nice try, though. I belive its called a "duce and a half". I think there is a placard on it saying the GVW is 35,000 lbs.
