My M715 Grand Waggy

Almost on the road. Got a bit more rear trimming to do though. Sporting factory springs with 2" BDS add-a-leafs. Probubly go to a 3 or 4 inch kit down the road. lockers front and rear and 4"11 gears. 35" BFG MT's. Might trim the front fenders some with the NT axles but then again it sure will keep the rig clean as is. Have some Bushwacker XJ flares I could use in the rear as well and those will allow for alot more cutting. But again with the NT axles there a bit wider then I need.

that's odd..your front wheels don't look centered in them(the fenders) at all. They look fine on my J3000 (centered). What's up with that?

Plow

Nice looking bumper there, I'd say run the XJ flares in rear....and paint the whole rig flat black.



Got the plow all hooked up and working also?

U still moving?

Yes and yes... Plow is ready to go and will be used as soon as a test drive is done. The XJ flairs are going on looks like.

We are in full swing to move back to Oregon too. A moving van shows up on the 8th and we fly out on the 10th. I'll be flying up to Alaska every few weeks for work from here on out and will keep the Waggy here until summer time. Then I'll drive it out with a small Uhaul and alot of my tools. I'll make another trip with my RV and the Amphicar in tow. Not sure if I'll try to get the plow to Oregon. Wont really need it where I'm going so I'll probubly wind up selling it here.

I was wondering about that... All I did was install an add-a-leaf.

Got the Bushwackers on the rear and the hubs are in. This thing is a beast with the lockers. Goes where I point it and takes a firm hand on the wheel in corners. After a full tank of gas adn a few test drives it leveled itself out.
