Just bought the truck today after I sold my CJ5. The old girl runs great with the 258, I think I am the 3rd owner. The body is rough, but fixable. I will post up some pics when I am able to.
Question is, what catalogs for parts are out there for the J 10's? For the CJ's you have several different ones, but I am not sure about the trucks. Looking basically for body and interior parts right now.
Does your company have a "Mail" catalog? I would love one of those to look at when I am in the shop working on this. 4wd hardware has a great catalog that helped me out a bunch when I was rebuilding my last 2 cj's.
I bought a whole bunch of stuff from them, even though the prices were a little higher, but the breakdown of parts (transmission, wipers, ect) were better than many shop manuals that I found. In fact I gave the website and recommendation to many of the CJ guys that I ran into in my travels.

Reason: forgot stuff
I haven't found anybody other than BJ's, really. I would also love a mail catalog, as well.
All the FSJ parts are almost fully interchangeable within the year span, and almost fairly interchangeable outside of your year span.
So that's the big Grand Wagoneers, the big Cherokees, and the j-trucks. Basically anything with that same front end. From the 60s(?) to 91
Beauty is in the eye of the jeepowner.
Yeah, I have a fairly good grasp on what will work on this J10 (Waggys,ect), but I need a floorpan, a new bed would be great, and a few interior parts. Cj parts are easy to find, I guess I am fighting a new tiger with the J10. I suppose I felt the same with my first CJ rebuilds, but I know the Gladiators and J series are more rare--maybe that is why I wanted one so bad. Good luck if I decide to buy the FC 170 that my friend has.
Yeah, I gotta figgure out how to get some pics up here (no camera). It is a long story, but I was Jeepless for three days until I found my J10, and driving a minivan in the meantime. It was horrible. I go with a minivan like my dog would go with a helicopter. I came across this J 10 on craigslist and stayed up all night thinking about HOW CAN I GET THIS TRUCK. I have had many jeeps, but always wanted a Gladiator or J series, or a FC.
Being Jeepless sucks, I never want to feel like that again.
The difference between my ex girlfriend and my jeep? I miss my Jeep.
