Greetings from Burgundy

Hello,
It’s great to be onboard of this forum !

I am from Burgundy in France and i am definitely a Jeep fan, especially CJs and FSJs.

I got a CJ7 Laredo with the 304 and a J10 sportside with the 258, and i’d like to have in the future another FSJ.

The first one I bought was the CJ7 : I chose this one because it’s all original and I like the v8 and the Laredo trim.
It takes off course more times to find the Jeep you want in Europe…

The CJ7 is an US version which was imported in the beginning of the 80s .

There are French version of the CJ7, because of the partnership between Renault and AMC at that time, but it was not with the V8.

I prefer generally a Jeep when it’s close from stock , except for a little lift and bigger tires :
I changed the tires of the CJ7 for some 35” and asked a garage for a change of the axles ratio accordingly.

The second one is a J10 sportside I bought two years ago : I was lucky, because it’s very rare in Europe as you imagine !

Unfortunately , mine is rusty and tired, but also close from the stock like the CJ7




I am starting a complete restoration of the J10, now I just finished the disassembly. It’s lengthy, since it’s my first restoration..





It’s not hard to find an Edelbrock intake manifold or an HEI distributor in Europe, but to find FSJ parts is a real issue over there…

Thanks

Welcome! And nice CJ7! It fit perfect on 35! Nice project on the J-10!
I'm from Italy, but I moved here in the US, and I remember over there that was very difficult find parts, above all for the price they ask!!! It was cheap buy here in the US and ship there.

Thanks Brizio, I am surely going to buy some FSJ parts in the US, but i guess it's not simple for the really heavy ones like an engine..

Sometime I find parts for friends in Italy, and they ship all together for save on the shipping price. I shipped two engine for a friend, and we put them in a van that another person we know bought. The cool things, is that the engine didn't pay customs!!! Because they don't check what you put inside a car...

Salut,
J'ai d├ęj├:o eu des ├ęchanges avec Christophe, une mine d'informations sur les FSJ
Si laurent c'est laurent Debetencourt, je le connais aussi : je lui ai achet├ę des pi├Ęces
Je posterai des photos des restos, le souci ├ętant que je manque de temps libre pour faire avancer tout ├ža.
A propos on se r├ęgale avec tes posts de restos : de v├ęritables oeuvres d'art, peinture, sellerie..
Regards

guillaume

Thanks
The brand is Maxxis (in 35"x13")
They were cheaper than the BFG
I bought them three years ago, don't know if they are still selling these one ?

Hi mud, congrats from Argentina, it┬┤s a very nice Truck.
You must be proud of being the owner of such a jewell lol. Don┬┤t desperate with the restoration, take it easy, it┬┤s the best way to obtain good results and your truck deserves it.
Unfortunately we have only a few imported J trucks like yours, here Gladiators were built ┬┤till 1978.
I invite you to visit our site and forums: www.clubjeepgladiator.com.ar.

Thanks Gallego,
You have indeed some very nice Gladiators in Argentina..
I guess that the gladiators were built by Industrias Kaiser Argentina (IKA) ?
I'd like to have a Gladiator Thriftside someday

Yes, they were Mud, till 1973, when Renault bought IKA, then it was called IKA-Renault.
After some years, when all IKA┬┤s vehicles were discontinued, it ended as Renault Argentina that builts Renault cars till nowadays.

WHAT THE H?!?!?

Follow this link and there are several pictures of MY Jeeps there! Somebody want to explain this to me???

http://www.clubjeepgladiator.com.ar/menu.htm
this first pic is my second 1979 J20 in my driveway after I converted it to gladiator front end. the sun set is photoshopped in. the truck is real.

http://www.clubjeepgladiator.com.ar/foto.htm
this second one is of my first 1979 J20 after I gladiatored it. added 305/70x16 Goodyear MT directional treads.

http://www.clubjeepgladiator.com.ar/import25.htm
this third pic is also of my second 1979, just facing out of my driveway...

http://www.clubjeepgladiator.com.ar/rara12.htm
This last one was a "photoshopped" concept I did using my second 1979 J20 and drawing/cutting pasting. it does NOT exist in the real world. My actual J4X was built based on this look. I don't remember putting this on the web! But maybe in the old days of fsjmagazine.com. I had a lot of photos there.

So who is grabbing my pics and posting them on an Argentinian website?

Mud....LOVE that CJ.
My second CJ was a Black '76 Renegade with tan Levi interior and 304 w/Quadratrac, TH400 and optional 4500GVW with soft top. I put 7ply goodyear J78/15 radials on it...and wow would it corner on the street. It did not have the optional low range unit.
It would always get me 23 imp mpg on highway with 3:54 axles...I loved that Jeep.

Hey i didn't realize that some members were still posting on my old thread
Thanks Dan for the compliment, yes i pulled the trigger some years ago for this nice CJ Laredo because first i wanted an AMC jeep, that's the first one i got, and then because i like the black and chrome combination and the seats specific to the Laredo. The original paint is poor though now : you won't see it on the pic, you see it if you are at short distance

Vow 23mpg with your CJ ! I don't get that for sure, big tires and performance aftermarket carbs and intakes don't help..

Remember mud...that's 23 MPG Imperial not US gal. Our gal is 20% larger than a US gal. ..but we haven't used MPG in over 20 yrs...we actually are supposed to use metric ie xx litres per 100 kms...so the lower the number the better ie 5 ltrs per 100 kms....
ya it's a mixed up world we live in, at least in Canada..lol.

Hi Tinkerjeep, Sorry if you felt offended because of your pics.
They were used by de webmaster to illustrate the site.
They┬┤re used as examples of: Cool, imported and, modified trucks.
Obviously, when the webmaster chose them from internet was (like ScottsMojo said) because he thought your Js are way cool

I don┬┤t Know what exactly dan01ster means.

Again Tinkerjeep, if you felt offended about it, if you dont like you truck┬┤s picks posted in the Argentinian site, make me know it and I┬┤ll tell the webmaster to remove them.
I┬┤d be proud of it, but not everybody think in the same way about it.

El Galle.
