What year is my J20 Parts Truck ?

I picked this J20 up for parts last year , it cost me US$500. J20s are rare down here so if anything comes up at the right price I'll buy it for body panels etc.

If this truck was in the USA what year is it ? There is no VIN on the truck that I've been able to find yet











The tray and chassis will be modified for the future 6x6 conversion on my soon to be roadgoing J20

I am told by the cops there are only 8 J20s still registered in Indonesia , there were probably a couple of hundred built here from kit

Windscreens

Can you still buy new FSJ windscreens ?

Both my J20 windscreens have gone white around the edges like shown in this photo



How much is a new windscreen approximately ?

My guess:
1974 to 1980, I'm basing that on the side markers and brow.
New windshields are still available last I checked, no clue on price.

74-78, since it still has the small flush gas cap and not the plastic in-set box.

Both of my '78s have the plastic inset box.

Yep, '75 was the last year of the rear post mount springs. This truck is no newer than '78 as it still has the three piece bumper brackets in the front.

If the rear springs have the same hangers as the later trucks then this rig is between '76 and '78, but I'm suspecting it's earlier as I think the fuel filler neck changed from 2 1/2" to smaller in ~'76 probably wrong on the actual year...

Okay, must have been 77 was the last year for the flush filler cap. I knew it was somewhere around there.

All 3 of my '77s are the flush caps.

The tail lights are different then I've seen, possibly aftermarket. The holes for the front turn signals and the pie plate holes are different.

All the Jeeps assembled here in Indonesia were from kits , my other J20 is a USA 1979 model but was put on the road in 1982, running gear was built in 1980.

It's possible they ran out of tail lights and just went out and bought something when screwing that batch together.

I think it is pretty neat you can find anything at all, and that is R-hand drive also... correct?

Hi Elliot , yes RHD.

There's a lot of military M715s here , my J20 is actually ex Indonesian Air Force.

Very few J10 or J20 V8s , mainly they are 258 I-6. There was a J4000 advertised earlier this year in Jakarta for $6,500 with a V8.

I paid $4,500 for my running J20 , the wiring was a mess and eventually caught fire and the body had a lot of rust , bad enough for me to take the truck off the road and get it fixed properly . I have a very gifted welder on staff and he spent a year part time making up patches and welding them in. See here http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=53917

This body line can also help narrow down the year.

I was thinking about this thread also.
It seems it would be either a 75 or a 76.
