I've been looking at pictures of Brutes for several years now, but this one sends me over the edge! Reminds me of the Willys pick up that a neighbor had when I was a kid in the early 60s. It was industrial yellow, you know the color that the highway dept uses on their vehicles, and it had a canvas top over the bed with red gas cans on the side. It has been my dream to have something like that ever since, and the one in picture above is it!

It was like this with a canvas top on the bed:

Yeah, I never really saw it before, but the Brute's a dead ringer for the old M-715s. Maybe I'll build a Brute instead of restoring an old M-715 someday...

IMO honestly, even if the leading "edge" starts to wear off, i dont see how having a sharp edge on a tire tread is really gonna help....i mean as long as the tire still has tread, the edge shouldnt make a difference
