Thanks monk

It’s been a great project vehicle all these years. It sure didn’t look like that when I first got it.

The duramax conversion will be interesting. If any member has done one. Would love to pick their brain. 😂

Cheers

That is a good looking machine, I have always wanted to build a HMMWV Turtleback/Slantback. I had the Calgold slantback on my open top for a couple of years however it wasn't ideal.

I am currently on the fence on a Duramax/Allison swap or a Cummins with stock 4L80E swap. I would love to do Dmax/Allison for a much more modern setup but the simplicity/cost of the Cummins is ideal as well.

Ya Injun It will be interesting to get the wiring sorted out. A Cummins would be a easier setup. Ive already purchased a 2005 lly duramax truck with all the engine upgrades done Already minus the arp studs. Due to COVID and the loss of my job I’m putting this project on hold for a bit. I also have another m1026 hmmwv project on the works which is also on hold for now. 😬
