Be advised that while the 258 is an excellent engine, it is a bit under powered in the J series trucks.
Insure everything body related works. Dash panels, gauges, window regulators, etc are getting harder to find.

|PR1AWRet||Does it have a low range? My 79 Cherokee with the 360 didn't have one. If they show you a button to turn in the dash that's not low range. If it has a small lever on the driver side hump or a regular 4w lever with a low on it's good.|

Avoid Rust if you can.

|bdavid500||Have you seen this J10? Typically (not always) when a seller says it only needs "blah, blah, blah" there is more to it than that. I am not familiar with the selling price of J10 so can not say that 4200 is a good price, but doesn't sound bad IF you want a J10. What is the purpose of this purchase? Can you do your own work? Do you have emissions in your state and will it pass emissions?|

77 Jeep J10
School me on the pitfalls of what to watch out for on a 77 J10. Have one available with a relatively good looking body, seller says it needs a carb tune up. 258 I6 3 spd manual $4200
