Maybe you will be looking for a CJ-V35 tomorrow.
LOL Bob. Not likely. Too rich for my blood. The less-rare M38 is all my wallet can handle.
I bought the book for the history and linkage to the M38, and because I'm a Marine (retired) who worked electronics maintenance for a career (yes, including truck-mounted MRC and GRC radios).
The CJV-35U is unique and interesting, in part because it's another example of what I experienced first-hand --- the propensity of the Marine Corps to go it's own way with some of its gear (like the Mighty Mite, Harrier, EFV, and the Osprey) when nobody else will touch it and they can least afford it in so small numbers compared to the gross amount the Army and Air Force usually buy together. Hard-headed sometimes.
Do CJV-35U owners have their own web forum like this one to compare notes and chase parts? It'd be great to see recent photos from owners. _________________ Ron D.
