The father-son project has arrived...











It a 2wd, gmc v6 gas (not diesel), 3sp, former forestry truck. It runs like a scalded cat, brakes and gets on down the road pretty good. The old man I bought it off of wanted to get it tuned up before my son and I bought it , so we waited three days while he replaced the fuel pump, filters, oil change and new spark plugs.

Wow that's cool. Looks to be in really good shape too.

I don't know why I've never come across one of those in the wild. Probably got something to do with more people living over your direction.

You gonna make it 4x4?

Hey Mike D., stepsides were an option, I think the cheaper option. Your bed is probably original.

LocalFiend, it was less that 3/10th of a mile from my house! I plan on keeping it 2 wheel drive- it is tempting to convert it, but I dig the 2wd factory idea for my son.

Well, we changed the plugs and wires... It surprises me that it ran. One of the plugs was barely finger tight!



Then the carb started leaking like a sieve.



Fortunately I had a spare carb from the panel build (I put the same type on it) a Holly 500 cfm 2 bbl. the adapter to mate t to the GMC V6 came from the local parts store.

My son went to get the carb off the shelf, he did, but apparently he likes to horse around.



The carb's not mounted quite yet... But I did paint the intake.





The oil bath air cleaner was cleaned up and painted, too.



We'll get the carb wrapped up tomorrow. I'll need a space/adapter to fit the stock air cleaner onto the aftermarket carb.

The oil bath air cleaner isn't going to work, it sits about a 1/2" too high with an adapter. Oh well, it heppens.

Meanwhile, she has one Rockwell axle:



Roflmao!

At any rate, she's on the road and runs like a scaled cat. This time, she fires up on the first try!

I haven't checked this thread in a while!

We both own a '63 Panel and a 2306F 2WD J200 - are you my long lost twin brother?

Nifty truck!
I've been asked about converting mine to 4WD, but I'm really embracing it's 2-wheeldriveness. I look forward to seeing more progress pics!

Wow, maybe we are twins separated at birth! I am liking the two wheel drive. I've never been too much of a purist when it comes to keeping jeeps stock, so a conversion might eventually happen, but it's not in the works anytime soon.

Post some pics of the twin rigs!

Well, the wheels and tires are done, she's running pretty good for now. So back to the marathon of sanding.

Didn't mean to hi jack but I was interested in the Jarvis Jeep sticker above and found some information about the Portland Oregon Jarvis Jeep dealership.

It is currently a Coava Coffee shop.

Awesome. I think the 2wd is a rare bird well worth keeping.

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

Hey, it's not a hijack. I thought the painted logo/sticker remnant was pretty cool, I am glad you did the research on some regional history! Besides, this whole build thread reads like a jeep-related stream of consciousness! Lol.

Thanks! I am loving the patina, too- it's almost a shame to sand it down and paint it back the the origional Spruce Tip Green.

I agree with you, in all honesty, there are a ton of other 4wd rigs to buy, the 2wd with the posi is just fine as is.

Now that I know it has a four speed and not a three speed, I don't even have to swap out the real axle!

Happy Memorial Day... Thank you vets, past, present and future.

I served during the first Gulf War (Desert Storm). I took my grandfather (a WW II Vet) to the Civil War Reenactment in Deep Creek, Wa.

My first YouTube video!

My son shot the video on my 2nd pass around the block with the new tires on.

1. Thank you for your service to our country.

2. Truck looks great cruising by. Those comparison shots to your rig are neat to see too. Oh, and the runny old white letter tire pic is pretty funny with the streaks flowing towards the rear instead of down.

One more thing - I'm unfamiliar with how those sideview mirrors mount. Are they permanently attached or were they made to be moved up and down the door? Just wondering why they're mounted in different places on the two trucks. My truck is later than your two and I've got totally different aftermarket mirrors.
