Hey guys, pretty new to this, site and all. Just wanted to ask some questions and maybe get some opinion on my truck and let y'all know what i plan to do with it in the future.
To start off, I acquired my 1979 J10 from a neighbor for i believe 900 bucks if i remember correctly. Had (and still has) barely any rust (except floor boards and little spots here and there). It's got the AMC 360/auto with the TH400 transmission I believe. It's My first vehicle and I love it. I believe the front axle to be a dana 60 and the rear a dana 40.
I was wondering if it would be possible to replace the drum brakes with disk brakes. I'm finding the drums to be a pain in the ***. I plan on doing a SOA lift and throwing on some bigger tires once i can afford to do so. I spend quite a bit of time up around Wilkeson and plan to spend much time at Evans Creek this coming summer. The neighbor I purchased it off of had it sitting in the Washington rain for a few years and that has cause most if not all of the weather stripping to rot and tear causing unwanted leaking. I've been searching a bit online to replace all of it and can't find much. I was wondering if any of you guys know where i could purchase new weather stripping for it. And I mean ALL of it.
I've had the idea bouncing around for quite sometime whether or not to replace the current bench seat (which is now tearing substantially) with a new set of bucket seats. What do you guys think? Also was toying with the idea of an interior roll cage. Is it possible? Has it been done? And what do you guys think of mounting off road lights to the hood?
Thanks guys, I plan to upload some pictures once i can figure out how to...
