Very cool project. I would love to have a rig as unique as that. How extensive of a build are you planning on? Hit the web using "full size jeep" as a search. I'm sure you will find something.

Dang dude! There's someone around my neighborhood with a WHITE one of those! I just saw it running one morning with mud slung all over the side of it, one of these days I'm going to knock on that person's door and offer to buy it! good luck with your project!

Is it running? Is it an auto or manual? 360 V8 or 258 inline 6?

Nice J10, looks like a good start. Check out ifsja.org, thats the fsj website, you have a pretty hard to find truck, especially with the factory roll bar and the Honcho decals still on it. I had a 82 J10 Laredo short bed, and I miss it, sometimes wish I never sold it.
