Project M1038: The beginning

Somewhere out of the “bone pile” or off one of our other ranches, brother Tim towed in a relatively stripped HMMWV for us to work on as a project.

The powertrain was missing, as was the windshield, headlights, reflectors, seats, and lots of other stuff.  It was unloaded and taken out to the vehicle parking area. Our main website picture shows it being towed by the M998 on its way to the front shop with the four-poster lift.


The original HMMWV — M998

My brother, Tim Grundman (owner of Big Dawg Diesel Worx, LLC) introduced all of us to the utility of HMMWVs.  This picture was taken at the ranch in January, 2018. Tim’s son Thomas is pictured. Thomas became very familiar with HMMWVs and more during his tour in Iraq.

The inside of HMMWVs are extremely noisy. The engine sits between you and the front passenger, and sometimes even yelling across the hump isn’t enough to be heard.

My brother decided to address this by adding David Clarks to both protect your ears and provide a more sensible way to communicate.
