I love this Jeep. I bought it for $600. Put like $300 or so into it, and it runs pretty good. One of the valves in the number one cylinder had a huge crack in it, so I pulled the intake and head and replaced it. Replaced some gaskets. Put it back together and it still didn't run. Found out distributor wasn't completely in place, so I popped it down all the way. Then it fired right up. Timed it, now it runs good! The body is in pretty good shape throughout. Except the floor of my cab is rusting out But I love it! It's my daily driver.

If your rust isn't too bad, don't fret. Just redid my floor (76 j10) with wire wheels, quiksteel for the lil holes, and 7 coats of rustoleum. Will post some pics up soon

The rust is really bad. I pulled my bench seat out and pulled the vinyl flooring out, and like the whole floor is rusting. It's pretty bad. The rear driver side of the cab has two big holes, big enough to fit my fist through. I'm gonna have to cut out the rust and weld some plates in there.

I am getting my 74 J 10 floor pans and rocker panels done this week. It was too many patches so I went with all new metal. I didn't think it was bad until I pulled up the floor. Soon it will be metal and por-15.
