Go ahead, flame me if you wish. After completing a very original frame off chassis restoration on a 66' FJ40 for a customer in California, it's time for a little something different. Yes, it's a Jeep. Let's be realistic though, the only "Jeep" part left is the frame and sheet metal bits....this could be any longer wheelbase Toyota. Owned by my longtime friend Mark, this'll prove to be an interesting build. Specs: 1968 M715 1.25 ton truck. Bone stock, 40K, spent it's entire life in interior Alaska (think Fairbanks) 2001 Tilden Motorsports 8.1 liter Vortec Ranger OD GM SM465 Off Road Design Magnum Box NP205 Front Axle: Dynatrac ProRock 60, RCV 300M shafts, ARB, Reid Knuckles, 35 spine hubs, etc Rear Axle: GM Dana 70 HD, stock shafts (until they twist and break), ARB, disc brake conversion The end plan is to run a full linked and coiled suspension on at least 40's. Why the nickname "Smokey" you ask? Because the 8.1 liter is going to turn good rubber into white smoke. Simple, stay tuned.
