Don't remember reading that one but another way that you might stumble on a good deal is to purposely misspell your searches or transpose numbers.

First time trying to post pics so here it goes.

Just picked up this A2 off of craigslist. It was listed under “ sporting goods”“bad ass Army jeep”.has full hard top and soft top. Runs good but non original gas tank. Came with a truck load of spare parts, mostly junk bust some good. What do you think about the LED lights?

Ya, that is mine. Put some new parts, tires, and seat cushions on it and runs like a top. Found original numbers on the front bumper and original paint on the hardtop. Cool vehicle. Frickin cold in Texas right now. I should have put the heater back in. Thought who needs a heater in Texas. Cheers!

I stopped being a boss when I retired! I guess I was a good boss because since I retired 2 years ago six of my guys have quit and moved on to other jobs.

Another good read. I borrowed it.

Lacking transportation when I arrived in Fort Sherman, Panama for a 6 month stint ('91-92 post invasion) as an instructor for Jungle School, I spied a M151A1 in the motorpool painted red....among all the (then) new HUMVEEs. I asked, and found out this MUTT had belonged to a Major that had to leave the command very abruptly (later I found out the Commander had issues as well, likely one darn good reason for him to get out of there) he had abandoned his repatriated Ex-Panamanian MUTT which was towed to the motorpool on post. As it was a Privately Owned Vehicle, the motorpool SFC wanted nothing to do with it.
Naturally, having too much free time in the early weeks of arrival with one work van for 6-8 officers, I asked if I could get it running and the SFC said sure, :lol: laughing that I would even try...

Next opportunity, I went over to the PX, bought a decent socket set, adjustable wrench and screwdrivers, then headed across the Isthmus to the Quarry Heights (or Balboa) cannibalization point, pulled off a carb, alternator and odds and ends off two or three A2's they had there that I knew the MUTT needed, returned out to Fort Sherman on the Atlantic side and proceeded to install the alternator, carb, etc. I recall the wiring issue, but merely took parts of the old harness and removed the regulator from it's participation, and finished up. Never had a real chance to run down the batteries to see if it was not hooked up correctly.

I got it running and drove it around a full 4 hours with a bunch of us heading out to the beach and back before we were ordered to park it as it was not insured and not our, etc. The next day the Colonel had a piece of me explaining, etc. but within two days.....we were issued another rental van to help move us around. Wonder what ever happened to that MUTT, things don't get tossed away too much in places where there's not a lot of resources, I'm sure it's still running around somewhere down there.

Images sent from Gunny... these came through. There were other emails but no attachments, may be my service provider having a hiccup.

I think the technical manual defines an underbody like that as "Painted Fog".
