86 CJ10 help

I picked up this CJ 10 last year and now that I have some time I'm planning on building it up. So my question is does anyone else have one of these CJ's. I can't seem to find out any information about it.
My specs:
*Nissan SD33TD
*TF727
*NP208
*D44 F/R
*119" WB
*no bed or box
*half cab

This jeep started out as a 10a before it was streched.
Any help or information would be appricated.

I don't own one, but drove them quite a bit and worked on them a little while I was stationed out in the desert. What do you want to know about it? I don't really see a question.

Yours obviously isn't stock, so it would probably be better to post some links to pictures to start with, that way everyone knows exactly what you're working with. Especially of where the frame was stretched, and suspension for those axles would help.

CJ-10 Bed

I'll get some pics this weekend. I wanted to see what others have done for the back half of the Jeep. I assumed they are stock Waggy axles 3.54 RP. The strech (39ish") is right after where the cab ends. The rear springs are outside of the frame rails. I'm curious as to if anyone knew what these are from, they look like Waggy or J20.
The odds of finding a CJ10 bed for sale in this country are pretty slim, that's why I like to see what some others have done on the backside. I saw ad in one of the Jeep rags about a conversion for the TJ that almost looks like an exact copy of the stock bed, Summit??? I think.

I think stock Wag springs are around 42" eye-to-eye. They would definitely be outboarded from the frame, so sounds right. Get a tape out and tell us where yours are at.

Coolest CJ10 I ever saw was a guy over in Britain did one with a custom bed. It was red. I'll see if I can scrouge it up. There is also a CJ10 forum somewhere. I know of a guy that belongs to it. I'll see if I can get the address from him for ya.

Thanks a bunch. Most people that see the truck think that I made the grill and put the headlight in the fenders . Then one of my smartass friends put that stupid "real Jeeps have round headlights" stickers on the back of it.

There is a CJ-10 yahoogroup, that will be your best source of info and hooking up with other owners. Since it was convertede from a 10a, there's no definitive 'let me tell you over the web' ID of what parts were used in the conversion process.

Are you going for something like this.....

This is a guy I've met up with on a few trail rides. He has about 5 10a's. This one has a narrowed S-10 bed on it.

'81 Scrambler w/ FI 360 AMC, 33x12.50 BFG M/T's, 5" of lift, ARB'd Dana 44's F & R, Dana 300 clocked & twin sticked w/4:1, Warn XD9000i, etc...
2002 Grand Cherokee Limited, 2008 Overland Grand Cherokee, a 1976 CJ-7 in pieces and 3 more off-brand 4x4s...............

Thanks for the Yahoo lead. Thats what I was thinking on the bed, or something like it. I found a couple of flat bed / tray back pics this weekend might go that way too. Running gear wise it's ok. The Nissan diesel is no powerhouse but it works fine for our use, it does smoke like a bastard when you first start it. Hell that only bothers my neighbors not me.
