this one is my beater. got it home,and we have nice weather coming in.

i have bucket seats in the '76 wag for it to replace the trashed bench. and the wiring is pretty bad.

rigged ignition. and the signal-stat turn signals is classic too.



and under hood.



they actually took out the delco and put in a motorola???




icky seat.



get these flares beat into shape too..





pretty solid behind the seat.





let the games begin. i got another rhino i could hang on it too...

Looks good Mike. The rear floor looks good for a rust belt rig. Actually the whole truck does. If you're gonna massage and paint the flares back to spec, I've got a pair of never used plastic stone guards for the rear flares if'n ya want'em.

That's a pretty clean J-truck, especially for your part of the country.

Years ago, I installed that same turn signal setup on my 71 Blazer...worked good, just no self-cancel.

I got a lot of "wth is that?" type questions.


Oh...nice seat cover/pad btw...

Seems you came up with another that looks better than my J20 beater. If you come up short on pieces to make it whole again make up a list head over and go shopping, might not have a complete older wiring harness though.

Looks like someone spent more time running all that mess than it would have taken to just fix it.

Save that turn signal switch for me- I could use it on my golf cart.

Had a customer with a modern dodge ran his until it wore the driveshaft out, hard to call the dealer and order a new one for a J20 though I guess...
