    Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter
    Continuing the Easter Jeep Safari tradition of "Resto-Mods" comes the Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter that is a seamless blend of vintage and modern components. The term "Five-Quarter" is a historical nod to Jeep trucks of the past that were one-and-one-quarter tons or "five quarters."

    Starting with a 1968 M-715, this Gladiator-based military vehicle was re-imagined with design and functional improvements to its chassis, drivetrain and cargo configurations, resulting in a truly capable showpiece.

    On the exterior, the original front sheet metal was removed and a full carbon-fiber front end takes its place. Also, an all-new, bobbed 6-foot custom-fabricated aluminum bed was installed that has been perforated and re-imaged using a mix of water jet cut panels and wood slats. Additional body modifications include a 3.5-inch drop to its convertible soft-top, further enhancing its factory monster truck silhouette.

    Headlights have been replaced with new HID lights along with LED auxiliary lights for vast outward visibility. Rearward, LED halo lights have been installed in the original taillight buckets. To protect the body, the original rockers were removed and replaced with functional rock rails that run the length of the body side. Modified front Jeep Gladiator Rubicon steel bumpers have been installed, which complement the brushed metal-finished body and tailgate, producing a polished look.

    The M-715 Five-Quarter's off-road capability has been enhanced by reinforcing the original frame and replacing the leaf springs with a heavy-duty link/coil suspension system. Additionally, the front axle has been pulled forward two inches and replaced with a Dynatrac Pro-rock 60 front axle and a Dynatrac Pro-rock 80 axle in the rear, while 20-inch beadlock wheels are wrapped with large 40-inch tires.

    Inside, new Jeep Wrangler seats, free of headrests, have been installed for a sleek, low-back visual. Additionally, water-jetted aluminum components make up a new lightweight and premium instrument panel, as well as door panels. A repurposed vintage 8-71 supercharger now serves to encase the transmission and transfer case shifters and the floors have been bed-lined for enhanced durability.

    Power is provided to the Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter by a 6.2-liter supercharged "Hellcrate" HEMIĀ® V-8 engine, which produces more than 700 horsepower.

    Is this built on a Ram 1500 chassis? The size is the same a full size.

    I wonder if there are elements from the new Rebel TRX in there (ie the hellcrate engine)

    I guess this actually from a used M-715 that actually found on Craig's List so that makes even more cool.

    Interesting but why chop the bed all up?

    I also bet the did an m175 because they knew if they did a gladiator hemi we would all be bugging them for months demanding a hemi option in the production model.

    Maybe the solution to the cooling issues is to abandon the 7 slot for a Kaiser grill .Mmmmm Kaiser grilled hemi model.

    I think that's correct - just the chassis is from an original m175

    Looks a little too offroad rat rod for my tastes. Still love the Crew Chief 715 more.
