Looks great!! I will have one of those someday. It will be mine, oh yes it will be mine. How does the bed look? The rust seems to be pretty minimal on the body. Hows it run?

Re: My CJ has a new BIG brother!!

40 and rain huh? Try 4, with a stiff breeze. (I wouldn't have it any other way, I love it)
That is one fine fine Jeep. for $600 you got a steal of a deal.
What does it have for running gear, what are you plans for it?

Re: My CJ has a new BIG brother!!

Korean war? They were manufactured in 67,68,&amp; 69. Wrong war, wrong part of Asia.

But other than that congrats. I have a 68 715 that I use as my daily driver and tow rig. I swapped a Cummins and an NV4500 into mine [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. I'm also running 42" tall commercial truck tires [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

Great find. M37's are getting harder and harder to find nice. Have fun with it and leave it stock. Its funny watching peoples faces when they relize it has a flat head 6 in it.

Re: My CJ has a new BIG brother!!

Congrats, that's a beaut of a rig! I was looking for an M715 as a buildup project right before I got my YJ. I had an extra 454 lying around while I was still driving my Shelby and I wanted to to a mud runner without too much modification, Just couldn't find the right price around.....being a 17 year old dreamer didn't help either. You'll never bust the axles in that thing though! D60 Front and a D70 rear, oh my [img]images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] I bow to you in utter jealousy. 23 here, not at bad as some of you, but hey we're looking at 6 to 8 inches of white stuff tonight!
