Woot... new addition to the Jeep fleet

1968 M715



All the gauges work, engine runs smooth. Everything else is pretty beastly.

Big thanks to Hammer for helping this happen.

Nice score. I'm a little jealous. A guy had one for sale in town about a year ago with custom rims and 38 inch swampers for 3k. It was really nice. If the economy was'n't so skrewed up I would have bought it but then he would not have been selling it.

I got all the fire gear out of the back. The brakes and steering aren't near the problem that they were with that extra weight in it.

So far not a sign of leaks at all... other than the one in the roof. But no oil dropping, no coolant... maybe I got lucky.

Totally jealous! I have dreams of buying a M715! Every time I watch re-runs of the A-Team and see Col. Decker roll up in his M715 I start jumping on the couch, giggling like a school girl.

Some day.................

Fire gear removed temporarily so the truck can perform "moving" duty. It drives like what it is, an older rugged truck... but I love it. Tank/Pump/Hose will get a going over before being reinstalled. I will also be trying to find a way to make it more of a one man operation to install and remove the setup.

Thinking of a retractable ramp, kind of like what you find on the back of a U-Haul with a smaller electric winch to move the whole thing.
