    Thats great. The only thing I've done so far is drive it on and off the trailer and move it around a bit. Just got the brakes working well enough to get it up to speed but still leary of the tires.

    Well,we made a quick day trip up to Winchester KY to popacom's place and snagged some more goodies for the Goat and M151A1.

    Bill is a great guy to deal with and I'll defineitly be going back to see him again.

    With the exception of tires and paint,the Goat is mainly finished!

    I forgot to add in the above post,I installed all the above parts from Popacom in the next couple days after the post,

    To anyone changing a front coil spring on a Goat,you DO NOT have to separate the upper or lower A arms from the steering knuckle.

    It just requires you remove the shock from the lower control arm,remove the weight off the suspention(lift the side in question off the ground) and remove the spring from the spring pocket.

    I had the job done in 15 minutes.

    The troop seats are pretty straight forward,as well as the pintile hitch.

    It drives and handles much better,now that both sides on the front sit level with one another.

    Good information, I have a new windshield on the way from him, I don't think there is anything he doesn't know about these.

    I don't recall seeing a shot before of a Goat with its cab:

    - Is that the actual G.I. cab on yours in the picture?

    That is an arctic hard top and was an issue item to some units.

    BTW,the hard top makes it very difficult to get in the cab.I kind of wish I took the time to find a soft top frame.
