After 13 years of this and 4 other jeep restorations I figured Im not going to get this one done

1. May be able to find registration may not.
2. Good Utah/California truck
3. sitting on a 1976 j20 frame with 44/60 axles
4. has a Junk LT99 in it for fitment.
5. Turbo 400 *No Cross member*
6. Relocated axle to fit 76 to 67 *Welds need finished* rolls and transports fine.
7. front clip in the bed.
8. Nice rhino and badging
9. Plastic repro gas tank in bed.

The truck has been stored in a garage for the 13 years I have had it. It is mid restoration, I have completed the frame. Body attached to frame but temporary... bed, temp attached.... Steering not connected.

I talked with JPJeeper a bit, this would be a sweet deal!

I would be getting it had I not thought it was a good idea to buy a house!

My wife was even on board!

This is nothing but Karma! It was meant to be. You see that, down one week, up the next. I was so bummed out about your rig. This is great news. Tony, you help so many of us on this and other sites with our rigs. CONGRATS and can't wait to see it come together.

I agree...the accident really bummed me out, and very happy I was able to snag this thing.
I spent all afternoon yesterday cleaning all the stuff out of the bed & cab.
Then I shifted the cab and bed back to where they belong.

Going to hijack/move the for sale thread since it's no longer for sale.

Bed all cleaned out...there was a LOT of stuff in there! According to jpjeeper his son used it as a trash can lol.



Interior all cleaned out...lots stuff in there too.



Moved the bed and cab back to where they belong. I Will need to work on permanently mounting them. There are no body bushings.

Anybody know of a source for long carriage bed bolts with wide head?
All the ones I have found have a smaller head.

I'll check around. Just curious, what's the diameter of the normal or standard head?
