    I am doing research to find out what my next 4x4 will be. I really miss not having a 4x4. :( I am thinking k5 or burb but if a k5 more than likely a CUCV would be nice to have.

    the CUCV has a 1/2 ton drivetrain right?

    also they all have the th400/208 trans/xfer combo right?

    :p I was thinking of the blazer version. And thanks for the info it was just what I needed. Sounds like a CUCV blazer would be cool for a mild off road rig. Just what I would be looking for :D

    My experience with my CUCV; the stock 3.08 gears suck and the 6.2 was in poor shape. From what I understand the military often uses more than just diesel in their vehicles. You also have to watch and make sure the truck has all of its pieces; with budget cuts they have scavenge parts from other vehicles.

    military blazer

    the military blazer uses a hybread 12volt 24 volt charging system they start on 24 volt run 12 glow plugs are 24 volt, the axels are the hd version (large bearing corp 10 bolt front, mine came with 6.2 torbo 400 208 case i changed it to a 700 r4 trans runs good, remember there are NO conferts on the military blazers...most you find on gov web sites are good starters,(,tubs and frames) lots of work myself if you are doing a street ride find a good rust free civilian and start there..

    I never replaced the bearings, so I can't tell you for sure if they are different.

    I did repack the front wheel bearings, so I can tell they are held in differently. Instead of having the spindle nut that you need the special socket for, they have a nut with a removeable key. You have to thread something into a tiny threaded hole to pull the key out. Then the nut comes off.

    Took a lot of time and frustration to figure that out the first time I packed the bearings.

    Not quite right, the 1028s that had a need for a PTO, like the shop trucks with the big air compressor have 400/205s. I've never seen a 4 speed manual in any version of a cucv. If you can document one, I'm all ears.

    M1008s come with 52 in. long front springs right? Yes I own one but my truck is in another city right now and Im trying to order the ORD extended front shackles. They said if I have 56in. front springs I would have to let them know because the shackle would have to be a diff. size although I dont think i have 56's up front just wanted to make sure though if u guys knew right off. Thanks

    Just one correction the glow plug system on the CUCV is 12 volt for all intents and purposes the only 24 volt component on the CUCV is the starter. As well there is a lower fuse box that runs 24 volt but the rest of the system is stock 12 volt components. Some people convert the system over to 12 volt and add the civilian 12 volt starter but I prefer the 24 volt starter it has a lot more cranking power and turns the engine over like a gasser. You can look here for further information on the CUCV 24v - 12v system http://www.chaosboyz.nl/rubriek/techniek/techombouw12v.htm
