One vehicle, truck, utility, l/4-ton, 4X4, M151A2, US Army Reg. No. NBO4A,
produced under contract No. DAAEO7-71-C-0103, was subjected to a 5000-mile
comparison test at this installation during the period 24 May to 2 July
The over-all configuration of the M151A2 vehicle is basically the same
as previous models; all models incorporate the product improvements pre-
viously evaluated on the M151A2 vehicle. The most significant of the

product improvements are the 1-piece windshield, deep-dish steering wheel,
mechanical fuel pump, and trailing arm rear suspension. The vehicle is
powered by a 4-cylinder, water-cooled, gasoline engine, a 4-speed forward
transmission, and selective front wheel drive. The body is of unitized
construction. The vehicle is designed for use over all types of roads as
well as cross-country terrain, and in all weather conditions.


The objective was to provide evidence of contractor conformance to
specified sections of MIL-T-OO45331E, 23 January 1970, and related re-
quirements as outlined in AMC form 1006A, 16 March 1972.


One M151A2 vehicle, USA Reg. No. NB004A, was received from the contractor's
plant, via commercial carrier, on 24 May 1973 in an acceptable condition
in accordance with applicable shipping procedures.

An initial inspection was performed on the vehicle to assure a safe operat-
ing condition. All on-equipment materiel (OEM) was inventoried, checked
for fit, and installed on the vehicle for the duration of the test. The
vehicle was received less the vehicle curtain, folding top, quarter, and
back, FSN 2540-064-6587. The shortage of this GFE item was annotated on
the receiving document (DD Form 250), and therefore is not a chargeable

Initial lubrication was performed in accordance with LO 9-2320-218-12.
The engine and gear boxes were checked and all lubricant levels were sat-
isfactory. All grease fittings were lubricated.

Upon completion of initial inspection and lubrication, five test radial
tires and wheels were installed and 100 mile of break-in mileage was
accomplished. The test tires and wheels were removed and original tires
and wheels reinstalled for the conduct of noise spectra test, Ref. Letter,
AMSTA-QST, 8 March 1973,and specified performance tests.

After completion of all performance tests the test tires, and wheels were
reinstalled for remainder of test. Remaining break-in mileage (420-miles) "

was accomplished on paved road, at curb weight per instructions contained
in TM-9-2320-28-IO. This mileage is included in the total prescribed
endurance mileage.

The load distribution at curb, with cross-country, and highway payloads
was determined by use of portable scales at each wheel position. The
payload consisted of sand-filled canvas bags and boxes. Specified cross-
country payload was 800 pounds. Specified highway payload was 1200
pounds. Load distribution was as shown in Table I.
