Ever see an extended cab J truck?

I can't say that I have, but now after looking them up on google, I see that they are out there. Just very uncommon.

Here's the reason for this thread:


This '81 J20 popped up for sale a way's up north from me. I've never seen one before and figured i'd share.
The add does say it's custom, but doesn't mention if it is home built or if a professional shop or company did these conversions.


BTW, did Jeep ever have a full size 4 door cab like the other makes had?

How much?

Looks really well done from the picher. Wonder if it's as good as it looks.

If only it had a Cummins in it I might give up my Dodge.

I'm thinkin' that they were asking $800. Not too bad, but it has no drivetrain. No engine, trans., no t-case, no driveshaft's

I posted the add in the Ebay/CL for sale section of the site.

There is one US built extended cab J-truck. An employee that worked @ factory built it.
Would have been cool if they had built more.
http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=133076

South America there are some examples as well, but AFAIK no official offerings.

Any you see are custom built, I don't believe there was any official US offerings.

I believe the top one was built on this site and I remember it going up for sale. I would be concerned about the bed. Its mostly plywood and fiberglass.

oh WOW! I didn't know a member here built it. Great Job to them! Too bad they gotta sell. I hope it don't get scrapped.
That would be cool to see on the road around here!

I have always loved the extended cab projects and appreciate the amount of work it takes to successfully complete one. I have seen some that started with a chopped waggy, though the roof was not technically as high as a j truck, and I have seen the true extended cab projects. I would love to own one done like the red one above, but with a brow. Hopefully this one will find a good home

Gotta have some serious skill to do these though, and actually have it look right. I wouldn't be able to do it. All that custom metal work, extending the cab, fabricating rear doors, working with the custom glass, possible extending of the frame(if you don't want to lose bed size), and all the added misc. that goes along.

Oh, I noticed earlier this evening that the add (About the one I posted above) has been pulled off CL, so it probably sold. Hopefully it will someday see the road and not get parted and go to the crusher.

Hey everyone, pretty sure the new owner is not a member, but he is a FSJ fan has a built J10.
Pretty sure it is going to get parted out, but he mentioned a buddy drooling over the cab, so it may see the road again.

When my son gets older (he is 4 now) I hope he is a gear head and we can build something cool for his first vehicle.

A few years ago I started a crew cab. Used a waggy back to just before the rear seat riser, J truck cab back, brow roof roof section. Peeled the wag roof off and put in the brow roof piece, got some 18 ga sheet to fab the difference, and the floor.
Got another set of front doors to square off the rear wag doors. Had to splice the rear doors close the the front edge to keep the style lines right. They taper off as you go back.

Ended up going to Victoria TX, and is somewhere in SC, IIRC

Was going to stretch my Chev 1/2 ton long box by 2 feet, with the 7 foot J truck box and take a Suburban fuel tank and turn it 180* so the fill would be at the left front.Was going to sit on 3/4 ton D44 and 10 1/2 full float rear, with a 454 and T400/205/203 doubler, 4:10's.

Did that go to Pascal? I think I remember it. It looked good. Any pictures left of it? I think Pascal also had a chopped waggy that was very cool. It was chopped behind the rear seat and had a small m715 style bed.

Yep, Pascal got it. Set at a buddies place in Nor Cal for a bit before he picked it up. Then he changed direction and it moved on.

No pics left, but the guy who got it from him had a couple pics of it on the roll-around stand I put it, as it was taking up space in his garage. He is/was a member on here or FSJ forum. Havent seen any updates on it since.

Were I to do another one, couple of things I'd do to make it easier, especially on the roof splices.
