Default M715 at Easter Jeep Safari

Sold my M715 several years ago and hadn't been around in a while.

That said, came across this article this morning and though I would share with you guys. The Jeep's Product Design Office decided to get an M715 and play with it a bit.

I like the technology. The styling not so much.

But it's nice to see our trucks get some attention.

I dig it. The bed could be more practical- but seeing as how itís a one off custom show vehicle, it makes sense.

Yeah, I guess 700hp would be taxed with a full bed.
But at least they didn't stuff an extra pair of doors in it!

That's a riot. I like that they retained some original features (the original dash panel with the windshield locks, under bed storage, for example), but the wheels and bed make me wonder if the water in the Detroit area is yet safe to drink.
