Jeep M715

Spotted an M715 earlier this week. Finally got some pictures of it when we were back nearby. Considering calling them up and asking them if it's for sale hahaha. The tires were around 35 inches to give a little perspective. I couldn't find the size, but they are old military issue goodyears. Really beautiful machine, I think they started using them in the army in the late 60s and were modeled after the J series kaiser civilian jeep trucks.

A good place to go for more info on it would be M715 Zone - Powered by vBulletin or International Full Size Jeep Association

Either place (forum) will be able to answer any questions you have about it. I can tell you that the M-715 is based on the Jeep Gladiator pickup, was built in the late 60's. It's a 5/4 ton pickup with a 6 cyl hemi type engine, should have a T-90 transmission and a divorced Dana 21 transfer case. It'll have moderately heavy-duty axles, but they'll be hard to get parts for, plus the front will have closed knuckles.

That's pretty much what I know off the top of my head, but either web site can go into much more detail.

Looking a little closer at the front axle, it's not stock. Not sure what axle it would be, but it's not the stock axle (older Dana 70 IIRC).

Very cool. They used to have a similar one at my local fire department.

Thanks lindel, I had read about them before and it's super cool. Like you said hard to get axle parts but hard to break too lol. I would prob clean it up and run it as is. Not really mod it. And yeah Wes it's pretty sweet. Too bad it's 10 hours from home lol.
