    first off you suck! :haha: just kidding i have wanted one of those for about 5 years now. ( since i first seen one) you know gmc made a simular truck? i know where one is but cant get ahold of the owner. yours looks very clean.
    second if the drive train is good why replace it with m715 stuff?

    can i borrow it on the now return plan when you get done?

    I was wondering what had happened to you.
    Truck is looking good.
    Im still kicking myself for passing up on the m715.
    How are you controlling the 4l80 ?

    Very cool! I love it. My dad has a wc-56 and a m-715.

    Here's a little inspiration for you, this is my brother's 1951 dodge M-37

    Wow, that is a cool piece of old Detroit military rolling stock. Nice job of fixing it up and not butchering it. I've seen some repowered, re-axled old trucks and they have lost all their nostalgic characteristics. Your rims are a good choice and match the truck well. Wish I had one of those.:bow:

    Some nice pics at the links you have. I also like those other rims you have mounted on the WC. Both go with the vehicle well. Well I can only envy you and your project. :bow:
