Wow, I wish someone had given my truck similar care. :mrgreen:

Mine was "rode hard and put up wet," as they say in Texas.

I thought you were FORBIDDEN to bring home any more vehicles? YEA RIGHT!
Looks like someone misjudged the low clearance!

How many you got laying around now?

Just can't help myself, Rick, I HAVE WAY TOO MANY!!!, 15-20, I ended up trading a running, driving, xcut A1 for both M718's, he has an A2 with a gun mount that I want, it is the one I was supposed to fix up for him, he said I may end up with it. :wink: May have to come live with you before long, do you have room for 20 mutts and 1 dog :lol:

I hope you were the receiving end of the mags! If not you lost out big time on that deal.

Was surprised how solid the underbody is, it will need front floors, rear floor, battery box floor and a small patch in the gas tank floor.
