Default M715 Axletech 4000 build

I bought this truck off of Craigslist. I first saw it on the M715 Facebook page, then followed the link to Craigslist. It is super clean and complete minus the black out light. I am going to drive it for a couple years in stock form while I collect more parts for the conversion and finish my other projects.

Nice. I have a couple sets of Axletech 4000 axles I keep thinking about putting a set under my 725. Are you going to run thr stock springs, posts, and shackles?

Missed the Green Goblin Cummins M715 enough that you decided to get back into one?

I plan to retain the stock springs. Yes, I missed my green machine the moment it was backing out of my yard.

I ordered the same heater I installed in my old truck. The universal boat heater from Summit

Going to change the spring pads on the axles? How do you plan on mounting the MRAP transfercase?

I'm going to make new spring perches and plates. I'll mount the t-case like an M35A2 does
