67 M715 build

I'm building, well having built to my specs, an M715. I'm doing some of the work but I dont have time or equipment necessary to do it all.
18 years ago I brought an M715 and I did restore it to stock myself. It was awesome and rolled in many a parade. But an old 67
vehicle is less than reliable and I wanted to drive it whenever and to where ever I chose. So I decided to blaspheme the stock military
vehicle restoration gods and start a modernization retromod build. I am now full on heretic.

I wont post a sh-t ton of pics because I've done that over on the M715 Zone but I thought I will share here since I am also an FSJ fan
and have owned a couple Wagoneers in my time. Lets face it an M715 is just a beefed up Gladiator, ergo an FSJ.

I expect the build to be done in a month or so.

LS1 2001 Corvette 5.7

SM465 - I wanted the granny gear
NP205
HillBilly Wizard Dana 60 SWD/Dana 70 Dually axles widened to 77" WMS to WMS, 4.65 gearing, 4wheel disk, ebrake, Detroit rear locker
JB Custom Fab NP205 twin stick
BJ's Offroad custom Winch bumper
Warn Zeon 12 winch
BJ's Offroad AC & Heating
BJ's Offroad Hydroboost
Trailworthy Fab HMWVV 24 bolt beadlock wheels and tires w/ PVC insert
Borgeson Stainless Heavy Duty Steering shaft
Skyjacker Dual Steering Stabilizers
New Vintage Gauges
1 Ton custom driveshafts
Stainless gas tank
Stainless gas & brake lines
New custom convertable top to replace the canvas
J-truck bench seat
Pepper Gray body and Cyber Gray accent paint. Both in a Matt finish

and other stuff I probably forgot ....

Here it is when I bought it, then after the stock restore, then a few of the build underway.

I have been following your build over on the zone. Nice to see and read some back ground on it here. Didn't realize you had it so long. It is looking incredible.

WICKED!!! No blaspheme here! FSJs came with so many different parts from so many different makers, who cares what you put into it! I would argue it is more blashpemous to build a chalk mark accurate military vehicle that hardly ever gets driven than to make one into a daily driver. Good on you, sir!
