Yep. I have bought from him before. Once you get in contact with him he will follow through.

One time I called and he answered while driving back from his warehouse. I told him what I was looking for and he turned around in the road and went back. Then he called me once he was there and found the radio mount I was looking for. He is on e-pay too as govsurp.

Frontline is owned by Jeff. He’s pretty knowledgeable. The company is in PA.

It seems odd to me that a new set costs 700 plus shipping. The entire package only weighs 35 LBS. That is some expensive steel. Just food for thought. hmmmm

They are getting very hard to find so it is now called supply and demand, you demand it so they supply it............................... for a price! I thought 400.00 was outrageous when I bought mine, especially since the price wend down on them after that but the supply is drying up. I know Guy is planning on making them but he can only do so much at one time. That is a side business within the company's main daily operating business. So M-151 stuff gets done when there is time to do it.

And if you have ever looked at one of those kits and realized all the work that has to go into it you would see where the money is. The government was in a position to be able to pay a company BIG bucks to have stamping dies mad to stamp that stuff out. That is not feasible in today's aftermarket world. What took a couple minutes to make originally will now take several days of many hours of labor to complete that kit.

Seems there is a lot more missing than that but I don't have a picture of a complete kit. He makes no mention of missing parts and it is not like Red River to misrepresent items. I will be very disappointed if he has gone that route!

Here is a pic of the complete kit, Blake's add doesn't state complete kit, the second pic shows front cross member kit, but it looks like it comes with the rear panel, not a bad deal, at least the shipping is cheap. :D Murray put some complete kits on Fleabay a couple years ago, I picked a couple up under $200, that won't happen again, prices have doubled in the last 2 years. :roll:

The aftermarket bodies were made of heavier gauge metal but if you let leaves sit in one for 10 yrs, they will rust, here is a pic before I started welding floors back in. As far as 151's, I have 5 or 6 running and driving and 10+ in need of resto, will start a M718 resto in a couple months. waiting on Rick to move down and help me. :lol:
