It will be nice to see what New CryCo does with it, considering how they have been busy polishing the turds of cars--Looks wise that have been plaguing Chrysler for years...

I am curious as to what the production model will look like. Will it be a separate cab and bed configuration, or all one body tub like the Scrambler?

They could do it pretty cheap in terms of design and engineering if they utilized the 2 door JK unlimited military body tub and designed a removable extended cab style top to go on it and a bulkhead to separate the cab and bed area.

AMG is pretty much dead, they sold hummer to gm then gm killed it, and the army has already sent in for the last order of HMMWV's(i think it was gonna be 10-15000 1151's) so lawsuits, i think not, or at least highly doubtful.

AM-G Produces a lot more then the M-Series HMMWV whish they just awarded a $619 Million dollar HMMWV contract along with 2 smaller contracts this year, they also sell to other Commercial buyer's and Government's, they are actually doing quiet well they just did a joint venture with another company and have designed and delivered 2 new unit's for Uncle Sam to test out as well . . . Plus they do plenty of Remanufacturing of units for the US Army as well

Them little odd looking Ford transit vans they are doing the Electric Upfitting of those as well as Producing Wheel chair accessible taxi cab's, and many other specialty Vehicles they sell internationally, the mini Delivery Van looking Postal jeeps are AM-G produced as well . . . they got plenty going for them

But this is a topic isn't about AM-G So back on track

I wouldn't mind the Little JT pickup truck, But i think the Gladiator or Brute style truck's are more play full and look to be less of a Knee banger then that JT Rig

The new Gladiator used a JK frame and suspension-and front clip-and had a separate bed and side-mounted spare tire. Imagine a very slightly scaled down Gladiator.

Wrong on several points. AM General didn't even exist when the M715 was built, they were built by Kaiser Jeep's Defense and Government Projects Division between 1967-69. When AMC purchased Jeep from Kaiser in 1970 they also purchased Kaiser's Defense and Government Projects Division and created AM General. So AM General has nothing at all to do with the M715, either in design or production.

I simply stated they had the "Production Rights to the 715 series trucks" not that they produced it them selves

AM-G profile:

Military vehicle production
by AM General over the
years has included the M151
1/4-ton jeep, the M715 1
1/4-ton utility vehicle, the
M44 2 1/2-ton truck, the
M809 5-ton truck, the M939
5-ton truck, the M915 14-
ton line haul tractor and
the M998 series of High
Mobility Multipurpose
Wheeled Vehicles.
History lesson:

Quote:
AM General = The Defense and Government Products Division:

In 1967, Kaiser Jeep Corporation formed a special division devoted exclusively to the research, development and production of government vehicles. The Defense and Government Products Division was a direct organizational forerunner of AM General.

On April 1, 1971, AM General Corporation was incorporated as a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Motors Corporation and separate from the Jeep Corporation. This move was initiated to give independent status to AM General to fulfill the special transportation requirements of the U.S. Government and pursue further diversification.
It went from a "Division" to Its own "Company" so same unit different name

If AM-G wished to do so they could stamp out as many M715/AM715's as they wanted to and there is nothing the Chrysler group could say about the matter . . . On the same note if Chrysler so wished to put the Nuk-715 into production they could also do so under a different name plate and simply remove the "715" part of the name

I just found this tid bit too:

Really? Because when you said "as AM-G built many AM715's" it certainly sounded to me like you were saying they produced it themselves.

So which is it?

Note I said "AM715" Not M715 . . . I should have proof read my post i guess . . . The M715 = Kaiser Jeep Milspec division, the AM-715 = AM-General . . . But AM-G has the production rights to both M715 & AM715 Currently and has done a few Manufactures of the M715's for other governmental agency's such as Forestry dept.

AM-715:
AM General

Quote:
This thumbnail is one of the AM715, produced by AM general once the order was completed for the M715 in 1978. Once the contract with the U.S. Army for M715s was up, AM general started to produce this model for export. Countries like Israel used this vehicle. The AM715 featured "disc" wheels, a 131 inch wheelbase, civilian front sheet metal, and a decreased overall weight of 7,300 lbs.
have a nice day
