    Military Mule M274

    Have a friend that has an old Terra Jet he might be willing to trade me. That would make a great start for a drive system also.

    Hello from Tulsa, Oklahoma! I’m a retired mechanical engineer and I love spending my time in my shop restoring old machinery.

    Military Mule M274

    I’m looking for plans to build an M274, Viet Nam era, military “Mule””. I used one of these in my military days to transport just about anything you can imagine. I’ve seen several peoples version of these, but have yet to see one that replicates the features I’m looking for. I plan on using a...
