I still have some finishing touches to do, but it is pretty much done.

I made the chain part up at the local hardware store. The covers were off ebay, I think they were listed for a Chevy or GMC. I may have had to cut them down on the length. I kept them long enough to not let them swing and have the chains hit the tailgate area.

So here is one in Minneapolis - http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/an...798207510.html



It is amazing to see how much work people have put into their trucks. Very impressive work -

I like the look maybe I should not order box side but take the box off the 59 willys pick-up and do the thrift side thing..
but if I were going to change the box I would make it this way i think.. I realy like it..
this guy is a customer of mine. he bought a 4.0L for his 96 xj from me...


he drives the jeep as his dd... he is going to drive the xj for the summer and put an auto in the j10... he said he is gitting older and does not like to shift...
I realy like the look of it compaired to the thrift sides....

L6

Tonka made me the reproduction valve cover sticker. It is perfect. Not a great shot because of the reflection. I think most old Thriftsides were inline 6's.

I'd be inclined to agree with that.

They're called THRIFTsides for a reason. Mine especially so, I don't think it has a single option on it. Manual brakes, manual steering, no radio...etc.


Was the last year for Thriftsides 1973 or 1974?

74.

I've had a sport side and a thrift side, and as much as I loved my sport side I think the thriftside is better looking. Way more industrial looking, and you don't have to worry about easily damaged fiberglass fenders.

Here is a pic of my 63 8' Thriftside. The bed matches the cab under the house paint.

Thought so. Guess that means somewhere, J10/J20 Thriftsides exist.


Mine has a passenger sun visor, guess the original owner was a high roller!

I've seen a couple of J10's, but they never made a J20 Trhiftside. The 8' beds line mine have the wheel wells centered, unlike the J4000's and J20's. 1970 was thelast year for LWB Thriftsides.

Sure there was long wheelbase J300s and J3000s thriftsides, but the tougher ones, the J330 and the J3800 were not availables with the thriftside bed. Not a surprise since the thriftside beds are smaller ("box area")..
