Default Newbie

Ok so I am new to the M715. I currently do not own one, but I am looking for any feedback as to why I should get one. The look of the M715 caught my attention and I cannot get it out of my head.

I currently have an 82 Scrambler that I was going to drop in a LS along with Dana 60 king pin, and Chevy 14 bolt out of a CUCV, but I could use those for a “new” project.

This is a father son (15 yr old) thing, so should I stay with the Scrambler or give it up for the M715?

I have a few leads on them but they are a little high for the shape they are in.

Thanks!!

You should get an M715 because they are cheap to buy and fun to work on. And with limited support, they are truly yours. Ideally you should keep the Scrambler and buy an M715. Use the parts on both. M715 would be yours and Scrambler would be your son’s. No need to share.

Reason enough to buy one right there, I'd say.

Would love to keep both....I have a 69 Camaro, 82 scrambler and I want a M715. Pretty certain the boss won’t let me keep all three, so something will have to go....other than me !

Tough choice, I love the CJ8s and the M715s.

give one vehicle to your son. Get the M715. Buy the boss a new pair of shoes. You still only have 2 vehicles.

Problem solved.
