This is my other truck. I daily drove it for 2 years before I got the Taco. I'm not really gonna do a build thread on it but I can answer questions about what it really is.

The CUCV was based off the K30 or K5 Blazer. They all have a 6.2 diesel engine, military blackout lights, 24v system, unique front bumper, rear pintle hook and front/rear d-rings that come through the bumpers, rifle racks behind the bench seat, and a slave receptacle in the grille (to jump the truck or use power from the batteries). The M1008 has Dana 60's front and rear (fully locked), and I believe it has some other heavier duty components compared to a civilian K30 (leaf springs). The 4" lift and HMMWV tires that my truck have are not part of the military package though.
