That's a ton of money to me and it's interesting to compare that to the higher $ some Grand Wagoneers go for. I wonder who buys a J10 like this compared to someone who buys an equally mint GW for 10k more.

Great looking truck, I think I'd be afraid to drive it after paying that much for it.

I'd drive it. Why buy a new truck 25,000.00-60,000.0 and drive that, and not a truck like this. I'd want to get the JEEP out.

All vehicles are ment to be driven, there only a few that aren't driven very much- And most all depreciate

Like they say there are drivers and there are passengers

The truck is nice for sure, but I could not spend that much for a truck that needs as much work as it does. You can clearly see just about everything on it leaks.

My current J10 is certainly not a looker, but it doesnt leak a drop of anything.

If that J10 didn't have all the leaks and such, it would be worth closer to what it went for.

That is a beautiful truck. The sale price is a little high for a jeep pickup, but its worth it to somebody....

If I had the money for it I'd of bought it and drove the wheels off it till all the gaskets started to blow out of it then have it rebuilt drive train wise and drive the wheels off it again. No sense in making something a garage queen.You might as well get a second wife.

I remember looking at this a while back and thinking it was too much for it but that was when he was asking $15,000 . Way too much little stuff wrong for that price.

Much cheaper than restoring/rebuilding a lesser one to the same condition, looks like a good deal if that is what you want, drive it, take care of it and enjoy it.

I knew that would drag you out of lurking .....

I still would of bought it had I the money for it. Like mentioned you can spend more than that just trying to get it half way to that shape. It definitely had the body from what I could tell.

I have alot into mine and it looks horrible still and is a driveway fixture currently. Hopefully that will change very soon.... And yes it has been shaved from the factory. I like it just as much as the 77 Honcho actually a little more as I like the heavy duty J20 over the J10.
