    Can anyone tell me what axles the CUCV M1008/M1009 came with, or where I can find more information about them?

    Now when you say "locker" is it a true locker or are we talking positraction/limited slip?

    1008 = 1 ton P/Up and good axles....

    1009 = Blazer, 10b axles and 3.08's open....

    Go read about Detroit Lockers yourself if you are looking into these axles. Sorry to be like that but....

    No way is a 12 bolt "Heavy Duty" compared to a 10 bolt. Same animal. Some would even aruge a 10 bolt is a tad stronger.

    I am familiar with lockers and have read about them, but I had never heard of lockers in the rear on military rides. I have heard of limited slip on them and was just trying to clarify with ya that's all.

    1/2 ton=Corp 10 bolts TH 400
    3/4 ton= D60 & 14FF Deisel?

    Some of the ambulances came with a trac-loc in the dana 60 front axle. The trac-loc is a limited slip differential.

    All 1 ton CUCVs have detroits in the rear and 4.56s. As stated above, very few have front traction devices as well.

    All the 1009s had 3.08s in their 10 bolts with rear gov bombs.

    damn the internet, those " marks were supposed to denote sarcasm.

    iirc, all of the CUCV trucks that had the NP205 also had the track-lock dana 60, which was very few.

    There were no 3/4 tons to my knowledge. 1/2 and 5/4 only.

    All were diesels.

    Not entirely true. The military calls the M1009 3/4 ton even though it's really not by civilian standards. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
