I have a couple years before I tackle it. Gives me time to plan it out.

I had made bolt in 72" WMS axles (D60/D70) for my last M715, but sold them two weeks ago. The CUCV axles are too narrow for my taste and expensive to obtain around here. The Axletechs are awesome and bullet proof

I've seen those axles cheaper than deuce axles and wondered how they'd work out.

better than deuce axles... Each have their benefits. I don't mind the centered driveshafts for the insurance of never breaking and axle

I registered my truck today. Had a little scare last night. When the lady went to do the "title search", a stolen vehicle alert came up. It just tells her to call Stolen Car Devision, but they were closed. So I had to wait until today for them to call the other dept. Turns out the vin matches to last 5 digits to a vehicle stolen out of Georgia. After that was sorted out, they called me to come in and get my plates.

While in Texas, I picked up a set of MRAP aluminum rims off of ebay.

I also got my caliper brackets from Black Rock Fab. Just waiting for my high steer arm to be made.
