Am I right that the book is about MVs and CJs but doesn't cover anything about the M151?

Not specifically but it does cover the M38 series.

It is basically a book about four wheeling in the desert southwest and how to keep them running. Not really MV specific. It covers M38 because thousands of them were surplussed out and ended up as the original off roaders.

I've seen those in person. They had an issue of getting debris like rocks and sticks in the holes. But you never have to worry about a flat.

But hellz ya I would buy some 7 x 16's.
