    Just wondering what the US army considered heavy duty. Was it just camo or olive drab paint? There seems to be some kind of plug in point in the grille I've always wondered about. Are there any suspension, wheel/tire, motor, etc. specs to be found?

    The plug in the grill is for jump starting.
    They all had 6.2/400/208.
    Both axles are 3.08 geared 10 bolts.
    The rear should have a gov lock in it.
    Wheels are stock 15x8 rally with 31x10.50x15 tires
    Hope this helps ya.
