I'm looking at a 1979 J10 Honcho 4x4 and I have a few questions. Can I swap interior pieces like a dashboard or door panels from a Grand Wagoneer into a J10? Also could I swap a rear bumper off of a Grand Wagoneer onto a J10? What is the tow capacity of a J10? This one has a 360 and a 3 speed auto.

I have been contemplating posting a build thread for awhile. After viewing some of the current ones I got really pumped! I also figured that as long as I was going to be asking for help fixing stuff I might as well have it in the thread... so here we go. My 16 YO son, Clay, and I are building...
