Welcome Andrew. Nice to see another Canadian M715 owner. There are about 5 of us in an around the Montreal area. Could you have found a truck any further away? LOL.

I snagged mine from Buffalo, Long Island, and Syracuse, NY.

Congrats on the purchase! Keep us posted on your progress.

James

Welcome Andrew. I don't know about tons of fun, but you'll have a least 5/4 ton of fun! Get it? Ah, never mind. Good luck in getting it home, and take lots of pictures.

The link worked fine. The truck looks really solid. Lots of luck. You're on your way to years of fun. Ask all the questions you need to, don't be shy. This site is loaded with answers. No question is to dumb. We all learn from other peoples questions and answers. We all share a common link, and thats our trucks.

Welcome to the olive drab sickness.
When you give the info to the company that post the job to the carriers, be careful about using the military word. It scares off some haulers thinking that they are going to find a deuce and a half or worse when they arrive to pick it up.
The hauler may have to shuffle the truck around on the trailer and big and heavy scares away some carriers and raises bids on others.
Good luck

I made sure I send pics of the Jeep to the broker who is trying to arrange shipping so they know what they are dealing with. I am giving it a week or 2 more then I will hooking up a trailer and going for a roadtrip. Only 27hrs straight driving, so Mapquest tells me. Hope to have it shipped is my 1st plan. Bad time of year to get drivers to do the trip.
Thanks Andrew

Great to know, Thanks I just spoke with 1 of my friends here in town who hauls travel trailers back all the time and his uncle is going down that way in 2-3 weeks and said he would get it and drop in my dooryard. just have to see if that is too long for the site where it is sitting or if it must be moved ASAP? Sent an e-mail today waiting to hear back, much better than a 52 hour road trip in jan.
Will keep you all posted on my progress.
Thanks Andrew
