Spicer Military and Tactical Vehicle Parts: Proud to Serve Those Who Serve.
The Spicer tradition of delivering military vehicle parts dates back to World War I, when Clarence Spicer was summoned to Washington to help design the Class “B” Liberty truck for the U.S. Armed Forces. Rugged, easy to maintain, and equipped with interchangeable parts, including Spicer universal joints, the Liberty truck set a new standard for military vehicles and established a heritage that lives on today.
In World War II, the famous Jeep® was equipped with Spicer universal joints, propeller shafts, and front and rear axles. Spicer products have become the military standard for defense vehicles around the world.
Today many tactical wheeled military vehicles used in warfare operations globally benefit from Dana’s Spicer® axle, driveshaft, or Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) technologies. The Oshkosh M-ATV, AM General HMMWV, and Navistar MaxxPro vehicles are just a few of the vehicles to benefit from our durable CTIS™ and driveshaft & half-shaft systems. Our expertise in energy conveyance and mobility make us the ideal partner for military vehicle OEMs wishing to incorporate cutting-edge technologies and industry-leading support into their next generation tactical vehicles and defense vehicles. Dana is actively supporting the GMV1.1 and JLTV platforms.
Spicer Severe Duty Drivetrain
Designed to excel in severe conditions, this drivetrain combines a redesigned axle with a Spicer Life Series® driveshaft to offer increased durability and impact resistance. Suited for Light Combat Tactical Vehicles such as the JLTV, the system uses new differential gear sets and an updated layout to provide increased torque capacity for higher gross weight vehicles. These changes, coupled with improved component materials and temperature control, help the system deliver unmatched durability and reliability.
