CUCV

Has anybody ever bought a CUCV or anything else from the government?
I've been looking at some of their auctions here:
http://www.govliquidation.com/list/c7587

Does the M1009 (Blazer) have 14-bolt and/or D60's?

They have M1008 and M1028's also.

Re: CUCV

The M1009 has 3.08 ten bolts.

The M1008 and M1028 have 14FF/D60 with 4.56 gears. The rear has a Detroit in it. The M1028s with PTO seem to have a Detroit in the front as well.

Re: CUCV

I'll steer clear of the 1009 then. 4.56 gears seem too low for me, I was thinking I'd prefer 4.10's.
But if I can find a decent truck to take the axles from, I can probably part it out and sell my current 10-bolts to make enough $ to have the CUCV axles re-geared and all the seals changed out.
I'm going to look into these gov't auctions, and make a full report later. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: CUCV

What exactly is the difference between the M1008 and M1028?

Re: CUCV

Swap out the TH400/NP205 for a 700R4/NP208 or NP241 and the gears will be perfect for 33s. Otherwise, they're perfect for 38s with a non-overdrive transmission.

You figure regearing two axles is going to be between $700 and $1000. You'll be lucky to make $200 on a pair of 10 bolts.

Re: CUCV

M1028 is a cargo truck. It has a mobile unit that is bolted on the back of the truck. I think M1031s are ambulances and will have dual alternators and a limited slip in the front.

I don't know, I'm getting rusty. M1008s have regular beds, 14FF/D60 with the 14 bolt locked, 6.2L HD with TH400/NP205, and 4.56 gears.
