Profile Information

What is the main reason you'd like to join 720World? (dont just say "because I own a 720", if you do this you will not be approved)
I started doing a tune-up on my sister's '86 720. Now the motor is out, torn-down, & I'm trying to put it back together again.
What is your profession? (not required, just if you want to share your knowledge)
I work for myself doing landscaping, home improvement, & mechanical side work.
About Me:
I was a tracked mechanic & wrecker opporator in the U.S. Army from '06-'10. That woke up a love for mechanical systems & problem solving.
I am now saving mullah to start my own 1/4 & 1/2 ton pickup shop specializing in small truck diesel swaps.
How many 720's or other Nissan trucks do you own? What years and types?
My sister just bought an '86 720 w/Z24 & 5-sp. 2-WD, SC, LB.
I am saving for my first truck, an '96 OBS F-350, 7.3, 5-sp, XLT, 4x4, CC, LB, SRW.
After that & a flat bed trailer, I will shop for a non-running Nissan 720 or hardbody to swap a diesel into.
