      This is hilarious I just purchased the "clapped out" truck featured in the eBay ad in your video. I saved up to purchase the truck and watched eBay hoping a good one would show up. I finally found one! These are good trucks and so long as folks understand its a workhorse not a racehorse you will not be disappointed. I bought it as my weekend escape vehicle and I am a fan of your channel. So I am pretty amused that this came up as the top search result when I was looking for CUCV videos on TVclip.

      I love these old trucks I spent many days playing in the bed of my dad's truck. I digress. I had planned on doing a series of videos on my work to get one of these trucks back to working. I dont have a youtube channel per say and I'm not looking to be famous but I would like share information on what it takes to get one of these old trucks back up and running. Honestly I am scared I spent a lot of savings to make this happen but if my video helps just one person that is considering doing the same thing then all the effort of making the video is worth it.

      Thanks for the video and the laugh.

      You should get some rust converter and get going on the frame and spring hangers, before it gets too deep.

    One thing you do NEED to modify. Go to off-road design and get a steering box brace and frame brace/repair kit. It’s not a matter of if you will need it...

    Have you considered turning the truck into a portable camp. If you can find an Army surplus tarp or a canopy from a 2 & 1/2 ton truck, with a pipe frame over the bed and extra pipe frame off the back, you could make a great shelter. The truck bed has stake holes that you could fit wood into, drill a hole for the pipe frame and then stake down overhang. You could sleep in the bed and cook on the tailgate on plywood or Masonite. Extend the pipe frame off the back end for a cooking, sitting area and have a fire pit just outside. Line the bed with indoor/outdoor carpeting and maybe closed cell carpet insulation. Make a canvas door so the cover could be enclosed for the night. It would be fast setup and takedown. It shouldn't be too expensive if you can find a tarp or canopy on Army surplus. Some tent makers have DIY aluminum pipe frames. Even a stand alone patio canopy on the back end would work. I have the canvas from an old tent camper that I think could be used and made to work. Has screening for ventilation with zipper enclosures. Mice made a nest and holes that could be repaired easily. Might be able to find something similar online used.

    Nice video, I have a 1984 M1008 CUCV just like yours, mine had a very similar past, from Military to a Fire Dept. than I picked it up. It was ugly camo pink. Now OD green again. I have towed with mine & tows great.
    I got lucky price wise & but it needed love, which it got. So historical insurance & plates makes it far more affordable to run. Mine is not my everyday driver, I have numerous vehicles. Great truck.

    Between the rust and the heat factor, I can understand why I haven't seen any of these down in South Texas. Sweltering heat+salty, ridiculously high humidity=unhealthy habitat for moose.

    THIS MILATARY TRUCKS ARENT TO MUCH DEFFERENT THAN THE CIVILIAN ONES. THIS TRUCKS HAVE A REENFORCED FRAME, ITS 24 VOLTS IT HAVE TO BE SLAVED STARTED IF CANT BE STARTED IN COLD, THE GLOW PLUG RELAY SUCKS EASY FIX PUT A MANUAL GLOW PLUG SWITCH, THE TRANSFER CASE IS NOT BULLET PROOF ITS A BELT DRIVEN NOT GEAR DRIVEN 205 TRANSFER CASE. THE 205 LEVER FOR FOUR WHEEL DRIVE WAS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE. ALOT OF REGULAR CHEVY PARTS WILL FIT THIS TRUCK. STUFF LIKE MORE WATER PROOFING FOR PARTS. YA THATS IT SAME PARTS BUT MORE WATER PROOFING AN THAT 24VOLT SYSTEM ITS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME AS NON MILATARY TRUCKS. ONE THING FOR SURE THIS TRUCKS ARE TUFF!!!! THERE NOT MENT FOR HIGH WAY US THIS TRUCKS ARE LIKE FARM TRACTORS SLOW STRONG AN GET THE JOB DUNE. THERE GEARED SO HIGH BECAUSE THE MOTOR SO WEAK. THAT DOESNT MEAN ITS JUNK. I THEN SEEN THIS TRUCKS TAKE A SALK BOX THAT WAS ON A STEAK BODY 9FT LONG AN PLOWED IN HEAVY SNOW. I SEEN THIS TRUCKS TOW ELEVEN THOUSAND POUNDS OF TRAILER AN SAND BAGS AN PUT MORE ON THE NEXT GO AROUND. VERY VERY SLOW HOLDING UP TRAFIC ALONG THE WAY. ONLY WENT ABOUT A MILE FLAT GROUND. WE PUT THE TRAILER ON THE SKALE AN ITS WAS ELEVEN THOUSAND POUNDS OR MORE. THATS WHY THE FRAMES ARE REENFORCED AN BUMPER ARE REENFORCED AN THAT PINDLE HOOK IS THERE. NOW JUST ABOUT EVER CHEVY TRUCK AN SUV 4X4 FROM THIS YEARS WILL FIT A 33 INCH TIRE ON STOCK SUSPENCION AN RIM 4X4 SUBURBANS 1500, 2500, FULL SIZE BLAZER AN ALL 4X4 PICKUPS. THIS TRUCKS CAN BE BETTER ON THE HIGHWAY WITH A BIGGER TIRE???? ITS THE 4.56 GEARING THE PROBLEM IS THE TIRE TO SMALL. I SEEN THIS TRUCKS WITH A 37 AN UP TIRE AN THE TRUCK DIDNT REV SO HIGH. THATS WHY SOME LIKE THIS TRUCKS DIDNT HAVE TO REGEAR THEM JUST BUY THE LIFT AN TIRES AN THERE YOU GO. I THEN WORK WITH THESES TRUCKS OUT SIDE OF MILATARY USE AN THIS TRUCKS GOT THE JOB DUNE SLOW BUT DID THE JOB. FOR THOSE THAT DONT NO IF ANOTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCY NEEDED THIS TRUCKS THEY CAN GO TO A MILATARY BASE AN GET THIS TRUCKS OFF OF SUPLUS CHECK THEM OUT AN TAG THEM GO THREW THE PAPER WORK AN TAKE THEM. FREE CHEAP AN EASY. I NO I WORKED ON A USDA FARM AN THEY HAD A TWO DOOR HUMMER PICKUP USED IT TO CHECK THE FIELDS. THEY HAD THE 5 TON TROOP CARRIERS EXTENDED THE FRAMES AN PUT THE LONGER DUMP BEDS ON THEN SO THEY CAN RIDE ALONG SIDE THE HARVESTERS TO GET THE CORN. SO YES I HAVE WORKED WITH MILATARY SUPLUS TRUCKS. THE FRAMES ARE STRONGER AN THATS A GOOD START TO A PROJECT OFF ROADER. LOOK IT UP ABOUT THIS MILATARY TRUCKS.

      Also finished the vid, the prices you state are totally off. No rusted out truck is going for 6-7k. And no, you wouldn't ask 12k for yours because you're only asking 8k. And its also disingenuous to your subscribers to say you wouldn't buy a newer truck because of how the older ones are so much better, when in your sales post you specifically state you bought a new truck and want to sell that one.

    If you put a cold air intake on it from the front of the truck where the civilian version connects to your air filter it will knock down the noise in the cab considerably. Throw on a hood insulation under the hood and it will be more than quiet enough to have a radio, cb, phone call.

Bf goodrich all terrains and she is very good on diesel as well. But I do like your video on this military's trucks history. Most are bought up your lucky you got one.

    some made up info, get in, start it, in the cold give it 45seconds to 1 min to get oil to the top of the motor... and drive... like... lol you 100% do not need to let it get off high idle... the truck should not be smoking alot when it starts unless something is wrong... I have *7* of these things... and I plow with them... never once waited till high idle kicked off to drive away (that being said... I would not beat it for a bit when that cold)... also this thing is a k30, with a hybrid charging system.. the 5/4 ton is just like made up... The shackles are tie downs... not towing... um, drum brakes are really expensive? LOL wut? um, like... what? I mean I see new drums... they are like what $90 each... not sure why would you not just turn them... lol... it's like not even possible they were worn down out of spec unless the shoes were dragging... also a powerful engine? LOLWUT? Factory was like 135hp...the engines are DOGS... the PS pump always gets lose... no idea why... every CUCV has that happen... The truck has a coolant "computer" too... but meh... same difference... pretty much has no computers but the glow plug card...

    This guy was like doing okay until he said a clapped out rusted POS was over 10 grand... I have a mint, no rust truck... with troop seats (could use some new wood on some) 10 grand anyone who wants it LOL starts and runs and drives and has less rust than his here...

    Btw the np208 is meh... 205 is much better only found on the 1031 and some rare 1028s... all k30's had the 205s...

    Nice truck. And the way Luke takes care of his equipment I think that truck will continue to gain value over the years, especially among military vehicle enthusiasts. I think that is why they are more expensive when stock. If you are buying the military version you don't want a bunch of civilian mods changing it up.

    A friend of mine had a truck similar to Moose, Luke. A D30. I remember taking an EARLY morning trip to Lake Ontario to do some fishing. Two interesting things...1) I am not a "let's go fishing at 4am" kinda guy, and that's because 2) I am not my best at 4am :) I will say this, during the 1 hour trip the LAST thing I would say is that I was sleepy. Wasn't a bad ride, but was a NOISY one. But where we were going, no other pick up would have survived. Been awhile, but I remember that what I heard during the ride to the lake was similar to what I heard while standing next to an idling Peter Built with it's cab up and engine exposed. Lol. In short, that truck was awesome...and IS a head turner!

    Great video about Moose. I do own a Red Sunfire Tacoma 2000, single cab, 2wd, standard 5 speed transmission, never been seriously serviced, engine or transmission never opened; it has 220000 miles on it, the only mod I have done is a double even flow muffler (it sounds really cool, strong and laud for a little guy, lol, just like my dog!) and it has low profile performance tires and rings installed by Discount Tires as the original aluminum wheels and BF goodrich tires were stolen by a neighbor to selling for scrap (could never prove it was him but right before disappearing from my yard he begged me to sell them to him! - that person has moved long ago now) This truck used to be my working vehicle when I was doing contracting work as a carpenter; its AC system is the best i have ever had in any car i owned, including more modern ones! it has gone everywhere and I have abused it in all forms and colors; it has a black removable camper on the bed and once I drove it from Florida to Nevada heavily loaded all over capacity, towing a large 10x8 trailer; weighted it on a truck stop scale and it gave me 11.000 pounds! which it is almost 3 times its weight! the only thing it did back then was to burn some transmission fluid. I would never get rid of it while I live; it sits in my drive way and people pass and ask if it is for sale; nope; it is a keeper and it has earned that through the years!

    Hey Luke, love your channel! I'm a little late on this and I couldn't find your email address, but I have a ?. I recently bought an 83 f150 with an original paint job. There aren't any rust holes on it, but there is surface rust. Quotes for a paint job were approx $5K, and there's no way I'm spending that much. Do you have any idea how much Moose's previous owner spent on her paint job? What kind of paint job? Thanks. Btw, she's beautiful and I completely agree with you about these older trucks feeling like a real truck. I feel like I can do ANYTHING with mine...except interstate driving lol. Thanks again for the update and for what you do on your channel. You guys are awesome! -Shawn

    In 1973, Dodge began developing militarized adaptations of their current civilian trucks. In 1976, the M880/M890 series was put into production under a large contract. For almost a decade the Dodges were referred to as "880s", "890s", or most commonly called "five-quarters". The term "CUCV" did not appear until the 1980s when GM was contracted to replace the M880/90s. The M8XXs were an attempt by the U.S. military to use commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) vehicles with minor modifications in non-combat roles.

    The new 3.5 in the tacomas are not so bad you just have to rev it out because it makes peak power at 4000+ rpm. They may have indeed went a bit overboard on trying to gain every fraction of a mpg though.
    But anyways moose rocks! I remember your first video on her and glad to see you still loving it.

    I got my 1008 via military auction for $1700. When I picked it up it had less than 20K miles on it and had been fully serviced before it went to disposal. I drove it home with a full tank of diesel. Because I got it directly from the military I am the original owner on the title. I left it mostly stock. I put running boards on it, tilt steering wheel and suburban bucket seats with center console. I love this truck and would never consider selling mine. Just a FYI on a couple of other features on the truck. The original military paint job is called CORC and it is radar resistant. It's the same paint used on military aircraft to prevent radar lock-on so you are fairly safe from speed traps. The second feature is the stealth mode for the lights. If you get some night vision goggles it might make an interesting video. Just flip the switch on the dash and you go dark.

    • Matt Lane
      Matt Lane 4 months ago

      ​@Michael Goodwin "CORC" O is no where near A so it aint a typo... you said it is RADAR resistant... then swapped to IR (100% not radar so wrong AGAIN) now you are just trying to save face... The "stealth mode" (black out) lights have... well... 3 modes... normal service lights, black out lights, or, all lights out. You talk about turning on the "stealth mode" lights then talk about night vision... stick to taking orders...

      You have difficulty dealing with being wrong...

      Again CORC... "radar resistant" (do show me anywhere that says this... IR has nothing to do with radar) and OD = Over dirt... LOLWUT?
      Please leave the trump camp you make us look like morons...

    • Michael Goodwin

      @Matt Lane- Since you have difficulty understanding basic concepts and facts I must assume you are a Democrat. Why else would you make a big deal out of my original post. I don't normally waste time with the benighted but I will make one LAST attempt to break through your mental issues. Please refer back to my original post if you are still confused.

      Paint - I was referring to speed traps not missiles. If you have this paint on your truck you might get out of a ticket by using the government description to call into question the accuracy of the police radar guns. Dispute it if you want but that government description got me out of a speeding ticket. Does it really screw up a radar gun? Who cares it worked for me. Now don't try to tell me you were in the courtroom and saw something different.

      Black out lights - Not a new concept. They did not originate with this truck. They have been around for thousands of years. They are even mentioned in the Bible. The black out lights produce a little light and the whole purpose of a night vision device is to amplify any available light. I had a Starlight scope in the mid 60's in Nam so yea people had night vision in the 80s LOL back at ya. What do the 80s have to do with this post anyway. My post was about here and now on planet Earth. It had nothing to do with whatever planet your from.

      This is my last post on this subject. You are boring. If you want to reply go ahead but I'm done. Since you are obviously a Democrat I'm sure you will just have to say something so just imagine me in my MAGA hat typing LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL to your brilliant reply.

    • Matt Lane
      Matt Lane 4 months ago

      @Michael Goodwin You just told me to do homework when you got CARC wrong (CORC) and said it was used to prevent radar lock on (100% wrong) pro tip... radar has nothing to do with IR... as for your night vision crap... yeah... I would be 90% of anytime those BO lights were used... no one had night vision on in the 80s lol...

    • Michael Goodwin
      Michael Goodwin 4 months ago

      @Matt Lane Do your homework. "CARC is designed to be easily decontaminated after exposure to liquid chemical agents, and the coating also is resistant to water, weather, hydrocarbons and acids. It has an infrared signature that makes coated equipment harder to detect. Component A is a polyester resin and Component B is an aliphatic isocyanate curing agent." And while I am educating you on military paint the military designation OD does not mean Olive Drab It means Over Dirt. Using OD paint you don't need to prep the vehicle before you paint it.

      The blackout lights on the vehicle are designed to be used in conjunction with night vision devices, If you need a tutorial on how night vision devices amplify light emitted from "really dim light" resources I will be happy to write up a simplified explanation for you. Blackout lights "don't use night vision" they are used to aid soldiers that wear night vision devices while operating the vehicles at night. That's the way we did it in the Marine Corps.

    • Matt Lane

    It's awesome to see Moose back out on the road again! Such a great truck. I've had the pleasure of driving the D30 both here in the U.S. and overseas. Your buying one is a very sound decision and investment. Modifying a D30 really makes no sense. One of the easy mods we did for the summer sun heat was strung 550 paracord between the gun rack mounts and drape a woobie over the 550. That kept the sun from hitting the back of your neck. The truck was still an oven but your neck was prevented from sunburns. Thanks for sharing Moose with us, Luke.

    Hello Luke, thank you for sharing this fine video. You own a piece of his history. Moose reminds me of my first truck. I put 185,000 miles on a 71Ford F100 long bed. 5 years after I sold it, I saw it being driven by a young man who had a trash hauling business. Moose is true classic. It is certainly intimidating. Take care and be safe. 🤗
