I'm going full Exo cage, so it will stay outside. Thanks for the compliments. Starting it just made me want to go wheel the hell out of it right now

LOVE M-715s.

I remember as a kid (about 1970-71) Jeep selling a ton of M-715s off in downtown Toledo. They had them parked everywhere and we selling them for around $2500 - new. Apparently military cancelled contract or something. Friends form the yoop bought one.

If only...

ID:	91325Been a while since I updated this. Progress has been slow got the doors hung and fitted the glass. Using the waggy doors with the 715 top halves since the original 715 doors were pretty rotted. Took 4" off the top bows to give it a little better profile. Today I got to work on the cage. Got most of the rear section done. All 1 3/4" 120 wall DOM.

Managed to find the motivation to build mounts for the tool box and OBA tank today. Pretty much finishes up the back half except for mounting some lights and plumbing and wiring the OBA.

Made up a plate to cover the back section and hold some lights. Gives me a good place to hang a liscence plate if I ever need one. Click image for larger version

Putting coilovers on the back and choping the frame?

Gonna have to wheel it like that for a while. Tons links and coilovers will come eventually and I didn't want to have to change the cage around when that time comes. For now it will just have to look like hell...

Well, this thread was a pain in the ass to find. Decided to man up and build the front of the cage myself. Made pretty good progress on it this weekend. Still need to decide exactly how I'm going to tie in some tube to the front bumper but the A hoop is pretty much done. Click image for larger version
