blew it. sportside bed.

got a tip from btpdragon on socalfsj. late wednesday of a sportside in the salvage yard near anaheim, ca. i was scheming about it the whole time at thanksgiving as it was half-price weekend. i got back late saturday and didn't get to rent a trailer for sunday to haul the whole thing home. i went down there early sunday and spent most of the day there.
heavyiron had volunteered to help load it, but i declined as i didn't have anything to haul it home on. i decided to just try for the fenders. after about three hours, i gave up. stubborn carriage bolts and other bolts--not enough hands. i ended up with just the tailgate.
there were some cracks in the drivers fender and the step plates on both sides had some damage, but as it was made of unobtanium, i didn't want to see it crushed. they quoted me $167.-- for the whole bed, so tomorrow it will be over $300.

this was an '82 honcho sportside. locking hubs in the front. clutch pedal under the dash, but had an auto column and full waggy interior swapped in. no engine /trans /TC, unless you count the 360 that was loose in front of the motor mounts. i suspect it was originally a 258, prolly another failed project. i would have liked to catch this one on the other side of the salvage yard fence.

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

Looks just like the 78 and 82 Jeep Special Equipment bumpers I have out back, just shortened and a tab bent in. I could make 2 of those shorties out it with a 5lb hammer and my grinder in no time flat Actually been mulling that idea over for my 68 thriftside, but would have to fab brackets..early frames lack the 'ears' to mount this later style too.

I recently took my stepside fenders off I'm trading them and was trying to save as many bolts as poisble. Ended up using a grinder and grinded off the bolt heads.

How hard would it be to get that gas filler box off? Is it metal or 'glass?

Glad to hear you at least got the tailgate. Let me know if you need an extra pair of hands if/when you head back out there. That yard is not too far from me.

Hoping to figure out something since my brother needs the bed, but not the fenders or tailgate. His bed has a lot of rust issues. The OP mentioned in a PM that the bed was rust free. My brother Nick is going to try and hook up with him to go get the parts. Thanks for letting the FSJ community know of this. Awesome!
