Hello Everyone! Another New Guy

Hey, my name is Scott, and I live in Springtown, TX about 25 miles NW of Ft. Worth. I have always had at least one 4x4 running since I was 16 and got my license. Mostly they were maintained by salvage yard parts, sweat, and busted knuckles! Now I am a bit older and I can afford a little bit better stuff. LOL And I even have air tools! My current project is a 1967 Jeep J-3000/M-715 frame up build.

Ok, it is a M-715 frame and box off the military Jeep, and the cab is from the 67 J-3000. Chevy 454, D-60 front, D-70 rear from a 82 dually. Yes, I am going to build it as a dually. I am not sure of the transmission and T-Case yet. I wanted to go with an automatic, but one of my main uses for the truck is hauling a 7000# camping trailer. I want a transmission with an OD, that can handle towing that weight. So, I am searching for a good unit that can do it. Eaton Fuller and Spicer medium duty trans will work if I can get it to work with the 454. Always something, huh? Well nice to be here, and hope to make a few friends. Scott

1st 4x4 1967 K10 6 cyl 3 spd
The rest: 1972 Dodge Power Wagon W100 318 auto
1964 Chevy K20 283 high boy 283 3 spd, then 350 SM420 awesome truck, wish I still had it.
1997 Chevy K10 350 Auto
1988 Chevy K2500 350 4 spd
1977 Chevy K30 454 4 spd
2002 Dodge Ram Cummins 5 speed
2004 Jeep Liberty V-6 Auto
2009 Dodge RAM 1500, 4.7 V8 5 spd auto Nice truck, still own it.
1967 Jeep M-715/J3000 Project!

I went to readers rides, and was going to post a couple of pics, and I cannot figure it out.. It wants a URL to post, then you click on the red highlighted area that says to post pics, and then it took me elsewhere. I don't really have time to figure it out right now, but will see if I can tonight. Usually forums are easier to post pics, I guess I am missing something, or maybe since I am new all my permissions haven't been opened up yet. Any ideas??

saterry.com/jeepgallery
