Sounds good! What mods are you looking to do?

I'm right around the corner from you - in NJ.

I have an M100 myself (cousin to the 417) and find it great for small loads and trailer-assisted camping. 
I got it thinking we would go overlanding more, but we just used it mostly for car camping.

After a thorough cleaning and attention to rust and frozen parts, I upgraded my lighting to new harness and LEDs, bedlined the interior, and added a lid with gas struts and locking hardware.
A previous owner cut a tailgate into the tub, and it works pretty well.
I run CJ rims and 31x10.50 BFG AT tires, but in retrospect, it would be better with smaller tires - I do not tow-vehicle-match, but that's a common move, depending on your pulling rig.
I do have locking rotopax 3gallon containers on each side for long trips, and used to have a yakima load warrior rack on the lid, which I've since moved to the roof rack of my vehicle (Grand Cherokee Trailhawk)
