We now have nearly 200 watches and soooooo many questions I am losing track so here is some info I got off the net on the CUCV's
some of its not relevant but you will have to take the time to look through

Chevrolet CUCV Family of Light Trucks

Production and deliveries of the General Motors commercial utility cargo vehicles (CUCVs) began in February of 1984. The new 1 1/4-ton vehicle had a 6.2 liter diesel engine that was derived from the four-wheel drive Chevrolet and GMC pickups and utility vehicles sold commercially as Blazers and Jimmys. CUCVs came in several configurations: cargo, shelter carrier, utility, and ambulance models. The CUCV replaced the M880s and represented the first major military vehicle production undertaken by General Motors since World War II.

Initially, the diesel-powered Chevy CUCV was seen as far superior to the replaced vehicles. The CUCV has better traction. Its storage capacity is twice that of a jeep. The CUCV is equipped with improved air and gas filtration systems and its gas mileage is much better. Initial hopes for the CUCV were that it would be able to fully substitute for custom built military tactical trucks in many roles. However, in actual field use, the CUCV did not live up to its promise. Particularly in the Gulf War, where harsh desert conditions and primitive infrastructure put all military equipment to a severe test, the CUCV was highly disappointing. As a result, the CUCV trucks were phased out sooner than expected, unable to survive the hardships that the purpose-built military vehicles could endure. The Chevrolet CUCV lingered into the late 2000s but was eventually replaced by variants of the HMMWV in most military units.

The Chevrolet Commercial Utility Cargo Vehicle (CUCV) series, like its M880-series predecessor, was a militarized version of a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) truck. Features of the Chevy CUCV trucks include these items as standard or optional add-on kits:

  • GM (Detroit Diesel) 379 cu in. (6.2L) J-series non-emissions diesel V-8 engine

  • GM TH400 (Turbo Hydramatic 400) automatic transmission with 3 forward and 1 reverse speeds

  • Manual NP208 2 speed transfer case (except M1031, M1028A1 and M1028A2 that have NP205 w/PTO)

  • Hydraulically activated, power-assisted front disc and rear drum service brakes

  • 12/24 volt dual voltage, 100 amp electrical system (200 amp on M1010 Ambulance and M1028)

  • NATO slave cable receptacle

  • Lockout hubs on Dana 60 10-bolt front axle. (M1028s, M1031 have Spicer limited slip Trac-lok diff)

  • Detroit No-Spin diff lock in GM 14-bolt rear axle

  • Tires: LT23W135R-16E Tires (except M1009 10.00R-15C Tires)

  • Brush guard on the front bumper

  • Cargo Tie-downs and cargo cover kit (M1008 and M1008A1 only)

  • S250 Shelter Tie-downs (M1028 variants only)

  • Pintle hook mounted on rear step bumper

  • Towing shackles mounted front and rear

  • M1028-series trucks:

    • M1028 Truck, Shelter Carrier, Tactical, 1 1/4 Ton, 4x4 (S250 commo shelter, communications kit and 24v/100 amp electrical) (NSN 2320-01-127-5077)

    • M1028A1 Truck, Shelter Carrier w/PTO, Tactical, 1 1/4 Ton, 4x4 (Same as M1028 with NP205 transfer case for PTO) (NSN 2320-01-158-0820)

    • M1028A2 Truck, Shelter Carrier w/PTO, Tactical, 1 1/4 Ton, 4x4 (Same as M1028A1 plus dual rear wheels) (NSN 2320-01-295-0822)

    • M1028A3 Truck, Shelter Carrier, Tactical, 1 1/4 Ton, 4x4 (Same as M1028A2 with NP208 plus dual rear wheels) (NSN 2320-01-325-1937)

    • M1028FF Truck, Firefighting, 1 1/4 Ton, 4x4 (M1028 with fire fighting equipment in cargo bed) (NSN 4210-01-259-4609)

Chevrolet CUCV Electrical System

The Chevrolet CUCV electical system is a hybrid 12/24 volt, using standard automotive 12v components for lights and instruments while using a military 24v starter. The standard system has two 12v batteries (Delco 1200 or military-type 6TN) in series and two 100 amp alternators (Delco 27-S1), wired in series to produce 24v. A NATO slave cable receptacle is wired to the 24v circuit so any 24v military vehicle can be interconnected for jump starting. The CUCV 27MT starter motor is a heavy-duty part, with increased strength pinion and ring gear teeth. Temperature self-regulating AC 13G glow plugs operate on 12v supplied by the 24v circuit through a resistor to drop the voltage.

The M1010 Ambulance and some of the M1028 trucks (with the S250 shelter) are equipped with a heavier 200 amp 12/24v system, that uses two batteries (Delco 1200 or military-type 6TN) and two 24v 100 amp Leece/Neville alternators. The 200 amp M1028s have not been provided with a different model designation.

It's a Detriot Diesel V8 engine, said to get good mileage, and has okay power and torque. 165 hp, 330 ft lbs torque for the army/military versions.
The GM CUCVs were produced in the 1984-86 time period (mostly 1984) and were powered by 6.2L Detroit Diesel V8 engine. The GM CUCVs were assembled mostly from the heaviest duty bits and pieces from the light commercial truck lines. The CUCVs came in three basic body styles, a pickup, a utility and an ambulance body. A chassis cab fitted with a service body could be called a fourth. The M1008 was the basic cargo truck, the M1010 was the ambulance and the M1009 3/4 ton utility rig, which was a stripped Blazer uprated to 3/4-ton capacity. With the exception of the M1009, the trucks were all rated as 1-1/4 ton (commonly called a “five-quarter”), even though some of them had payloads in excess of that. In the truck lines there were some heavy duty variants, to include the M1028, M1028A1, M1028A2 and M1028A3 shelter carriers, the shelter being a mobile command, communications or intelligence operations enclosure. The M1031 was the chassis cab which was most commonly found in the two door version. These latter trucks were all rated for heavier 3,600 or 3,900 pound loads, vs. the M1008s 2,900 pound load capacity. The M1028A2 and A3 models had dual rear wheels. Many M1028s were upgraded at the company level to M1028A2 and A3 specs. The Dual wheel rear end was a result of incidents where the M10128 flipped on its side because of the high center of gravity when carrying the equipment shelters.--

[edit] PowertrainAll the CUCVs were powered by GM’s 6.2L J-series Detroit Diesel V8 engine non-emissions diesel. These were rated at 155 hp (116 kW) and 240 lb·ft (325 N·m), which was 5 hp (3.7 kW) more than the emissions diesel engine of the time. They were all equipped with the TH-400 automatic. All but the M1028A1 and M1031 used the NP-208 chain drive transfer case. The M1028A1 and M1031 units had a slip-yoke rear output version of the NP-205, which was specified mainly for its PTO capacity.

[edit] AxlesThe M1009 Blazer used 10-bolt axles (front and rear) featuring 3.08:1 gears. The rear axle was equipped with an Eaton Locker (“Gov-Lok”) with the front being a standard open differential. The M1008 trucks used open Dana 60 front axles, with the M1028 and M1031 variations often having a Trac-Lok limited slip. In the rear, the M1008s used the GM 10.5-inch (270 mm) 10.5" Corporate 14 Bolt Differential with No-Spin lockers (the commercial trade name for the Detroit Locker). Though the M1028A2 and A3 duallies have Dana 70 HD axles. Axle gear ratios were 4.56:1.[edit] ElectricalAs with other military vehicles, the CUCVs used a 24-volt electrical system. It was actually a hybrid 12/24-volt system that used 24-volts under the hood, complete with dual 100 amp alternators, the mandatory NATO slave receptacle for jump starting any NATO vehicle, and hookups for military radios. The rest of the truck was 12-volt.


Some of the unique accoutrements to a CUCV are the military brush bars and tow hooks front and rear, as well as a pintle hitch.

  1. The M1009 (single axle)was rated for a 1,200 pound payload and a 3,000 pound towed load. It used the heaviest duty GM springs available for the chassis and the rear axle was a 10-bolt unit. It rolled on 10.00-15 tires, had 3.08 gears and a rear Gov-Lok.
