(FORT CARSON, Colo., January 25, 2005) Rudy Hill, wheel mechanic, left tightens bolts on the tilted front of the truck where Hans Mortensen, right, works with a hammer fine tuning placement of another piece of armor on this nearly complete vehicle. Trucks today are getting added plating and bulletproof glass for greater safety.

The add on armor installation program kit weighs approximatey 3,600lbs and takes approximately 70 man hours to install. With 4 men working a vehicle can be complete in a day.
