. Well Sissy, Wolverine obviously understands what the contract is for and you don't. No need to be rude about it, just ask questions and educate yourself.

Thanks JSP and your right. When you have a fleet of vehicles, and there will be 10,000+ MRAPS of all variations, its a whole lot easier to maintain if the prime vendor, the powertrains are all the same across the fleet of course the models/body styles will vary, but when you have multiples of everything it makes it much more expensive to maintain the fllet as a whole, not to mention when vendors change hands or go out of business and there are proprietary parts involved. Just for instance the FMTV has 9 different transmissions listed that they know about can you imagine sending a service tech to Afganistan to help a unit repair a vehicle when the TM says order parts by serial number.
