Default Waggy/M715 truggy

Well, starting with what's left of my 89 grand wagoneer, chassis specs are 7" spring over/ shackle flip, 3" spring lift, and 1" shackle lift. Axles are Dana 44 front and rear, 3.73 open front ARB rear. drivetrain is AMC 401 mildly built, about 400 horse, TF 727 with a shift kit, and a NP 229 to finish it out.
I bought a 67 M715 about a year ago, shortly after I rolled the waggy, with intentions of using the cab and front clip on my chassis. Sent the body out to sandblast recently and patched the holes in the floorboards and a few other places. Next was the rockers, a little rock protection should come from the 4"x6"x1/4 wall tubing I welded in.
I machined some body mount bushings out of aluminum since the rockers will be tied in to the frame and Exo-cage later.
Set the cab today and hooked up brakes and steering, before putting on the front clip. Should be more to come soon.
