Nice build. I have a j10 that I got from an uncle just for the motor. I thought it was beyond keeping and was more then likely just gonna let it sit for parts in the field. Now that I see this were did you get parts from? Maybe I will try and keep mine alive!

thanks! yeah if you wanna keep it going I got my parts from a mix of junk yards, and a parts waggy. From the front seats forward the wagoneers and the pickups are the same so it wasn't to hard to piece one together. If you do get it going let me know and I can give you a list of the websites I got parts from

So it's def been way to long since I've been on and I haven't posted up anything new in a while but I'm glad to say she is complete! well....kinda as much as any project ever is but she's taking me to and from school as my DD as well as hitting the dirt when we want to. so while I try to figure out this picture upload to get the rest of the work pictures up this is what it looks like in the mud.

Had to do a pull test idiot kids lol



Just playin around in the mud some a month or so back can't wait to get the real tires on it.... anyway what do you guys think?
