Default M715 Dimensions

Sorry if this isn't the purpose of this part of the site, but I was wondering if I could get some dimensions of an M715 for a model building project.

Here are the measurements I am looking for.
-width of the cab
-height of the cab, rocker panels to the top of the door
-width to the outside of the fenders
-width of the bottom of the windshield
-height of the windshield
-inner dimensions of the bed
-outer dimensions of the bed, with the tailgate excluded from the length

Hi, and welcome
We would be happy to help out with your modeling project.
I'm a life long modeler myself.

Give me a day or two, and I will post the requested measurements.
I can provide photos of any detail that you would like as well when needed.
Dan

Yes, I'm working on some ideas for a new look for my rc crawler and a jeep truck is pretty high on the list.

This set of files is $75, but might save you a ton of time when it came to measurements and reference??

Appears they bobbed the bed though...and the mirrors are wrong...but other than that...

Here is the build thread...

Thanks. I think I can get most of the proportions from pictures, just need some basic measurements to scale from.

I apologize for the delay, been working overtime.
I'm off this weekend, and will have time to measure.

OK, now that we are all on the correct page

-Cab width at widest point is 72.25"

-Cab height from top of rocker panels to top of cab pillar is 28" -add 3.50" for rocker panel height.

-Windshield height at center is 21"
-Windshield width is 60.5" at bottom (or 61" hinge to hinge).

-Fenders at widest point 72.25" (same as cab), adding 4" for each flair makes it =80.25" outside edge of flairs.

-Bed is 69.25" wide outside, adding 5.5" for each flair, makes it = 80.25" outside edge of flairs.
-Bed inner width is 64"
Bed box is 92.5" long inside, adding 1.5" for front bulkhead to give outside length.

We expect pictures of your modeling project.
