Thanks and wish I did but I don't. I'll be following this thread closely hoping to learn of a few places for replacement parts for these old pickups.
A good condition orginal taligate I would like to find locally....when I first bought the truck I took it over to my body shop owner friend and he said he could fix the crack in it and repaint it the same color for me....but I noticed just yesterday the crack is spreading quite a bit....
I could just remove the tailgate and use the net that is already there in the bed but I would much prefer to find a good used original tailgate and have my friend paint it for me...the original tailgates where it says J E E P across....
Anyone know what year J Series tailgates will work? Are all J Series tailgates the same so I could use a different year with mine being a 78?
I upgraded my account and am able to upload directly from my computer but when I take pictures to upload here I set my camera resolution at 640x480....if I go larger than that it blows out the margins.....but I'm 60 years old and not very hip with computers or uploading photos so maybe I am doing something wrong but I just use 640x480 for this site.
Hopefully someone here who really knows will reply with some much better info than what I can offer.
One other thing I just thought of and that is awhile ago someone posted in one of the forums here a photo resizer that was free and it works great...you can make your current computer photos smaller with the click of a mouse...I will post the link to it if I can find it....I'll go look now.
I see you upgraded your membership here so when you go to make a reply look for the "Go Advance" button and then once you hit that look below posting area where it says to "upload images" and hit that and a box should then open up where you can upload the images directly from your computer.
EDIT: I must have been making the above reply same time you were making a reply and posting pics....awesome pics!!
