Now it is just one of those things I have to put batteries in every few years. I think she would pull a cypress tree out if it could get enough traction...perfect for weekends.
The horns are just for show, little too much so I put them in the window of the RV
catblaster said:She might have done you a favor with that M715. We replaced our old M37's (3/4 ton) with those kaisers and even though they were rated at 1 ton they would not carry or pull anything like what the old flathead dodges would do, and they were half worn out. That parts truck would be needed it it had an engine, they were a supply clerks nightmare.....Right now I would take either one of them but I'm not headed to the DMZ either. (Korea) My wife is the same way, fortunately almost everything in the yard runs except for a lawnmower she discovered last week....need to hide things better.
Old_Crow said:I didn't really need the one ton, either. It was just something I saw on Facebook when I was shopping. I ended up sinking the money into my old '61 F100 instead. I had already swapped in a 302/C6 drivetrain, so I added a front disc brake kit and power steering to it.
After that it suited my needs better. It was a real PITA to back a car trailer when it had the old Armstrong steering.
