Australian Delivered CJ10 4x4

Gday all, ive visited this site quite a few time but ive only just joined as a member! I guess one of my recent Jeep purchases qualifies me as a fsj forum member. A 1984 CJ-10 4x4 utility, got it for a steal, $500AUD!

When i get around to it, ill post some dimensions (wheelbase, width etc) to try and get an idea of what chasis Jeep Australia have put a CJ10 cab on!

For now i know that its got a Dana 60 rear, Disk brake Dana 44, 4 speed manual (not sure which on yet) and NP something or other.

Its a bit shabby in the picture, ive been fixing it up over the last week and im planning on painting it! So far ive replaced the Australian V8 with a new(er) one and installed a new windscreen.

Tell us what you think!


Cheers, Ads

Cool find. They were built for a few years in OZ and MX but only about 300 where built here in the US(1982).
Should have a semi-floater D60-2 rear axle. Does it have the gas motor or the 3.3 Nissan dsl? PM me your email addy and I'll "try" to send you pics of the pages in the CJ10 dealer brouchure. I say "try" because I'm offshore dealing with a aircard in my laptop.

Welcome aboard! That's a pretty neat truck and you sure did get a steal on it. Here's to hoping you share your rebuild pics with us!

From Jedi Jeep: "...These A more truck-like Jeep built mainly for export from 1981-85. A small number were also sold to the US Air Force for use in pulling aircraft around runways. These Jeeps had very stout drivetrains compared with their smaller brethren. Easily distinguished by the square headlights in the fenders and the 10-slat grille..."

Yup; used a Wagoneer-style chassis with a CJ-style tub and the wider front-end you see in that pic.

If it's a gas engine, the transmission should be a T-176 and the transfer-case is undoubtedly an NP208.

I know Waggy donor parts are the preferred method for converting the tugs to streetable 4x4's. Guy near me has done dozens, getting the tugs from Wright-Patt AFB. It is pretty much bolt-on. Beds are the hardest part.

got to be one of the ulgliest jeeps I've ever seen. I love it!

I would comp cut the fenders, put a CJ or YJ grill on it, a smaller bed (maybe brute style), and wheel the heck out of it.

OZ CJ-10

Gday all, Cheers for the links fellas ive bookmarked them in my favourites. The CJ re-builders manual you suggested Joe is a great publishing. I already have one, i brought it a few years ago when i got my other jeep, a 1974 CJ5 (D30 front, D44 rear, 258AMC, Dana20 etc etc).

The guy i got the CJ off cut and welded the bellhousing to swap in an australian V8. Its a really well engineered conversion. Im swapping the eninge for my high comp 253ci as the one it came with is busted. Its a small displacement but they are a great motor with a heap of low town torque! The gearbox is likely the T-176 as i believe it was delivered with the petrol motor. Im still not sure about the transfer case, its a passengers side drop (drivers side for you guys).

As for the front end bodywork i have a bit of a dilema. I like the look of cut fenders - but it would be illegal where i live. I would love to swap in a CJ5/7 front gill but due to the front bull bar, the lights would be useless. The bar is a neccessity where i live - theres bloody cows and kangaroos everywhere!

Cheers, Ads

Ah!... the land of Take Away Chips.

Quite a Ball Pleaser and a swift kick in the clacker...that CJ-10; only a bloke would opt for it, eh?

Unfortunately for all the "real" FSJ's at Pa Jeeps show, yes they did. The one that was there was virtually brand new and pretty much stole the show (and the trophies) too.

Oh BTW, Welcome from New Jersey!

Nice score

IIRC , according to the forum criteria maybe it's not an FSJ, BUT it's quite similar to the US J10 and J20 , and we are certainly interested by this great rigs :
- called actually J10 in Australia
- almost the same wheelbase than the J10 shortbed : 119.8'' instead of 119''
- a Dana44 for the front and a Dana60 for the rear like the J20

I got a brochure, maybe the one joe is talking about

Here are the specs at the back of the brochure after conversions :

- front axle : Dana44 fully floating , rati 4.09, rated at 3200 lbs (GAVW)
- rear axle : Dana60 semi floating, ratio 4.09, rated at 4300lbs (//)
- springs : 5 leaf front single rate, 5 leaf rear dual rate
- transmission T177
- transfer : NP208
- wheels : 6 studs, 16x6.5'
- gas engine : AMC 258ci, 6 in line
- or diesel engine : Nissan SD33 198ci, 6 in line , 70kw@3600, 215Nm @1800
- length : 190.9'' cab and chassis, 195.7'' with the utility box and rear bumper
- width : 68.1''
- height : 72''
- track front : 60.6''
- track rear : 58.3''
- GVW : 6690 pounds

Actually , IMO the CJ10 is sorta like a standard J20, not the heavy duty one, but with a short wheelbase like the J10. It's also narrower (track) and slightly higher than a J-truck, though.

Guys- just wanted to point out that this is a thread from 2007, which was bumped by this guy with a question about the wiring diagram:
