Isn't that a m109a3?

You should need anything, if for some reason all that stuff fries in an EMP push start the thing (or pull). I pull started a truck, with batteries totally shot and the switch not even on...it started in less than 1 foot.

These trucks start so easily you can never leave them in gear, overseas sometimes another vehicle would "bump" a truck and they would start up and drive off (if left in gear).

Others have mentioned they have been driving slow, hit a tree, stall and then roll backwards and the engine starts running backwards! Sucking in air through the exhaust and expelling exhaust through the intake!

These trucks are probably the best BOV and I believe they are totally EMP proof as is. Extra parts probably are not needed.

Here is a thread that I started about these trucks answering questions, along with some pictures of my truck. http://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...d.php?t=135069

I know the designations of vehicles, I was just listing the correct designation.

I wouldn't purchase any parts for the vehicle, I don't think they could be damaged by an EMP. Those old parts were designed at the height of the cold war, they are simplistic, and I highly doubt they would fail you. However, if they did fail and you had to go somewhere fast it would take you longer to replace the parts rather than getting a couple people to help push start the truck. Better yet, park the truck on an incline...pull the wheel chocks and the parking brake and it will start right up.

In my opinion, these trucks are already EMP proof.

Do a search on craigslist and you will probably find several in your area, sometimes they come up on government auctions sites, look on the steelsoldiers classifieds, or the more expensive option it to buy from a dealer like Kublos, Eastern Surplus or one that is nearby you wherever you are.

Not completely certain, but I thought those had a mechanical fuel pump. Check the fuel cell for a drop in pump or extruding wires.

They have an electric fuel pump that pushes fuel up from the tank to the fuel rack, it only has one wire because the vehicle uses the chassis as a ground. I would buy some replacement parts one at a time to build up a spares box.
Don't just worry about EMP, think of other things that can go wrong.
Include fuel and oil filters.
a couple of spare injectors
starter solenoid
starter
fuel pump
engine oil
transmission oil (I think engine oil will work but don't remember for sure)
differential oil (enough for front and rear)
service manual, M109A3 book will do, specific one for your vehicle may be hard to find.
It's been a long time since I worked on one of these so I may be forgetting something, find an old vet that used to work on them and ask what they would get.

That thing should be very inconspicuous driving around the neighborhood.

The nice thing about these is the money you save on a new vehicle you can invest in some night vision and came netting and travel at night with the lights off which will keep you nice and inconspicuous. Minus the sound but no one can have everything.
