When the time came to replace the Army’s fleet of aging M37 Dodges, Kaiser Jeep stepped in with the M715 and won the contract. The M715 cargo truck was a militarized version of the Jeep Gladiator that was produced from January 1967 to May 1969. Rated as a 1-1/4-ton, it proved itself in Vietnam but was never as popular as the M37 Dodge. It had the beefiest drivetrain that could be ordered in that era: a Dana 70 rear axle, a Dana 60 front, an NP200 transfer case, and a T-98 trans. A variation of the M715 was the M726 Maintenance truck.
