M967A2/M969A3 Fuel Tankers: Suspension Bumper Assembly Update

The suspension bumper assembly for M967A2, M967A2P1, M969A3 and M969A3P1 fuel tankers isn’t in:
  • TM 9-2330-329-23P (Dec 15) for the M967A2 variants; 
  • TM 9-2330-330-23P (Dec 15) for the M969A3 variants.
Just to clarify, the suspension bumper assembly is on your fuel tankers; it’s just missing from the TMs.

Once the TMs are updated, the assembly should be shown with the axle springs and mounting hardware.

Where’s the assembly located on the trailer? Look for the suspension bumper assembly on the frame of the trailer, right above the end of each axle, as shown below (bumpers are not directly visible in the photo):
