79 J10 Honcho - abcdk5

Hey everyone! Glad we have this site.
My 79 j10 Honcho

A not so good pic taken ten years ago before digital cameras. I had already redone my truck ten years before that. Well the new eventually wore off again so now it's under another major renovation. I bought it in 1985. I've owned it for 26 years. I had a 68 CJ5 I traded in for it because I fell in love with Jeeps and these trucks.

Some stuff I did way back to it and she still runs strong and sounds good:
body work, paint and clear coat by me.
new rebuilt turbo 400 with low range unit
new brakes, calipers, front rotors, front outer axle u joints
rear brakes and guts
mile marker quadratrac conversion to part time
superwinch locking hubs
switched to 4350 4bbl and amc intake
edelbrock performer cam and lifters
edelbrock timing chain and gears
small block chevy pushrods
trw forged aluminum pistons
chrome moly rings
new oil pump, water pump
Hooker headers
me and a friend of mine made the custom front bumper with the amc brush guard cut and welded to the top,
and the custom rear bumper, both made from schedule 40 2 " pipe
added lights on rollbar
new front grill insert
dual Nissan electric fans
three row radiator
new starter
extra spring added to front
2" blocks in rear
american 15 x 10 wheels

This time I'm adding new stuff
edelbrock performer intake
holley 4150 650cfm
100 amp alternator
aluminum jeep logo valve covers
derusting and repainting all engine components
homemade dual snorkel air cleaner setup
redo the interior
body work and paint again
all new lights, trim, and rubber seals
I'm gonna paint it semi flat black this time and get the power steering box to stop that leaking
2000 Infinity QX4, 3.3L, MPFI, 4 speed auto, 2 speed Nissan tcase, Unibody, IFS front, 4 link rear solid axle with 255-70/16s


...Pay no attention to these heathen barbarians with their cutting torches and 8" lift kits!...
