1974 Cherokee truckster

I bought this with the intentions to get it running and drive it. After seeing it there was no chance but I know some FSJ guys could possibly use some parts and I'm all for helping out.

I always wanted a FSJ. A guy at work bought some property and said there was a 74 jeep cherokee in a barn that's been setting since the late 90s would i be interested. Site unseen I agreed and we made a deal.

When I arrived it was what he explained. Back half chopped to make a truck bed to haul firewood. But in decent shape.

What I know. 360 AMC, TH400, no idea on t case. Full time with a low range pull cable. Dana 44 front with disk brakes. Dana 44 rear. No idea on gearing.

It's rough. I originally bought to swap the axles to my XJ but the front is a passenger drop and they are 6 lug so it's not worth the trouble.

It's rusty under side from setting 20+ years in a dirt floor. But the cab area and dog house are not rusted out. They are still solid just minor flaws. Doors work and all glass is good. Windshield is good no cracks. Grill was hit with a tractor which trashed it and the radiator. But the hood and all the core support is not damaged. Floor pans have holes. No rubber left on the truck from squirrels. They are the hoses all off. All of them.

I turned the engine over after cutting off the belts. Turn fine. Starter was junk or it would run and I'm not spending $50 on a starter.

I have it posted on the local Craigslist if someone is looking for parts. Just posting it in here to help out the FSJ guy.

I'm not in mood to part this out if it's worth saving. The cab addition is a total hack job or I would drive it. Sheet metal and 2x4s.

I don't have the heart to crush this truck for the amount of usable parts on it. I may buy a starter at some point if I don't sell this and get it running. But it needs full brake job and all rubber hoses,lines, and some wiring work. But it's inside the shop now and can set until time is available.

I'm the most amazed at the shape of the seats.

I could really use that drivers side windshield wiper arm, if the spring is good.

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

Im going to wait on parting this out. I'd just rather have someone buy the whole thing. That's why I saved it from the crusher. Someone will want part this out.

OK. I'm still searching, then.

Well I started taking this thing apart. I'll try to save everything I think is salvageable. Windshield is cracked I hear they are hard to come by now for some reason.

Wiper arms are good but not sure how they come off.
