!964 J300 Gladiator - New Owner

Yesterday I picked up a 64 J300. Very complete minus motor, tranny, T Case. This has been sitting in a tool shed since 1990. The guy just got tired of looking at it.

I own a few CJ's, two XJ, and some other stuff. So I am breaking new ground.

Preliminary plans are modest. I have no plans of chopping up the body. I do plan to either beef up the D44's or replace with something better, SOA, go with a V8-Auto, and heavy T case. Will add a full interior cage. Freshen up the body.

I want to end up with a respectable off road only rig. I may have some parts for sale along the way.

Any first hand info you can pass along for part sourcing and specifications would be very greatly appreciated.

eh, I'm a Ford guy, so that probably won't happen. Nothing against it, would be cool and all.

As far as budget, I don't try to think about it that way, just gets depressing.
