Hello from NY

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to drop a line and say hi...In my search for manuals and resources for my cummins truck I found this site and it looks like there will be a lot of good info here:cool:Cliff notes of my project are...I picked up a rusty 1995 Dodge 2500 4x4 cummins diesel standard cab w/144k miles and a 1994 1500 2wd gas with a rust free body. Providing the frame on the '95 isn't too bad I will be doing a full body/interior swap and rebuild on the 1995 cummins.I also have a very long term project, a 1968 Kaiser/Jeep 1.25 ton military pickup that I am planning to re-power with a 5.9L cummins, 5-speed and NP205 transfer case

My poor M715 has been under a tarp for several years, I don't think I have any current pictures of it but...

Here is a picture of a restored one

Mine is more like the M726, the fire company that had mine cut the regular bed off and welded on a reading utility bed...
