    I've got one.
    I love it. They are very unique. Mine has been a project for about 10 years and still isn't close to being done(they never are). I am in the process of building 3/4 ton axles for it. I've built the motor, the tranny, and current 12 bolt. I've lifted it 4" but plan on going a little higher to fit 35's. I usually go muddin and trail riding and get cool truck comments from most people even though it is ugly:)

    Hey COCHEV Ive got two, a 70 and a 72. The 72 is my nice driver with 8" lift, 350/350, dana 60 and eaton, and 37" SSR's. The 70 is my wheeler with 8" suspension with later model front springs and 56" rears, 3" body, massive fender hacking, 44" boggers on 12" trail ready beadlocks, full 35 spline 60 front with ARB, factory eaton with detroit in the rear, 383 and SM 420, and lots of character. I have a 454 and nv4500 for the 72 to swap in for towing duties.
