Now that I learned how to post pictures, here are a few of my 51. I bought it from a man, who bought it @ 2000 and had Charles Talbert, Mseries rebuilders, go through and rebuild everything on the truck. From the winch to the rear dif. It was repainted in 1996, so it has a little " patina " going on. He put @ 28 miles, since he owned it. I bought it in 2007.

The only thing I've done to it, is put on the tires. I use it on the farm, everyday. 4 wheel disc brakes and GM power steering. Thinking of putting in a 4bt diesel and a new 5 speed.

After seeing that M-37, I've decided I don't like you. :)

I'm so jealous of you M-37 guys with nice trucks I get ill.

I love it. Congrats. Having the winch on it is special. Wanna sell it???

Thanks guys, I think the M37 is about the prefect MV to have and use for everyday driving. I want to grow old or older with this truck. it's a work truck and that's the way I like it.

Thanks again, Ron

I'll probably get an arguement, but the M715, just rusted out so bad. I wanted something that will last, until I'm done. Hopefully awhile longer :)

Real Nice!
Charles does his rebuilds the way there supposed to be done.
These old Dodges are very rugged and reliable.
I bet it's right at home on the farm!
Well done!
Tom

TGP,

As you know Charles is the real deal. He has answered every question, I could think of. I have the matching M101 trailer, that he rebuilt, also. Thing is, it's just too nice to use. It just sits with never used tires on it. I use one of the other trailers, when getting or hauling stuff.

vtdeuce,

Topless! I bet that fun. I've never taken mine off. In fact I need a new top, maybe this summer, would be the time to go topless.

Yes, they are the Michelin XZL 11.00/16. I put the ceramic beads in the tubes, for balancing. No opinion on if they are working, I really don't go that fast to feel if they are balanced.
