Default Camper Special

Well, if any of you noticed the thread in the "wanted" section M725 Camper
...you'll find my reasoning behind the project.


So today I bought the M725.



I feel proud that I saved this sweet rig from the scrap yard (it was literally in line) so I got a good deal.

This project will be 2 phases, first the drivetrain then the camper.

Next is to find the donor for cummins, tranny, tcase and axles.

That's a great idea. I'd do the same, if I had a need for a camping vehicle and a lot of disposable time and income. It looks like you're starting with a good truck.

Make sure that when you change the inside to a camper save those parts like the liter racks and some of the other amblance parts.

Well, I'll defintely make available the ambulance parts and try to keep the military roots the best I can. I don't know much history on this vehicle aside from the Civil Air Patrol label on the door.


The key word is recycle. I'm hoping most of the materials and parts will be from what others don't want. Disposible income? Time? This is going to take a while but if plan is reached it will be worth it.

I've owned 2 CJ7's, a scrambler, grand wagoneer and fullsize cherokee but nothing is like this thing! I look forward to learning from you guys about these sick rigs.

Default working on the donor

Well, I'm actually looking at that 93 dodge for 1350.
6bt, 727 and I assume NP208?, dana 60 front and 70 rear.

Awesome. It should be pretty close to you (at least closer to than to me), and as long as he hasn't stripped too much you should be able to get everything you need off it.

That should be an NP205. The 727 was the predecessor to the a518. the 205 will bolt up to those. Axles on all cummins first gens were dana 60/70. For 1350, youd be doing real well! 1993 will be intercooled and VE pump.

Sounds good. Keep us updated.
