Yeah, Oshkosh owns Motor T’s ass. My battalion had three JLTVs get deadlined for mechanical failures at 29 Palms, and then another eleven get deadlined for a safety recall, leaving us in the middle of an exercise with 60% of our normal complement of JLTVs and having to fly a team of three Oshkosh mechanics out and Read more

Don’t worry, I am sure they will have something special to announce when they finally show their plans to celebrate Trek’s 50th anniversary.

I don’t hold out too much hope for these guys; they did just miss their exit 500 times in a row, after all.
