1984 Jeep J10 360 from North America


A brute for a truck, indestructible

General Comments:

One tough truck. The V8 with a four speed pushing a set of Q78 buckshot tires. This Jeep would go anywhere you wanted to go. I abused the Jeep in the woods until it was sold.

1981 Jeep J10 Step-side 360 from North America


Bad to the bone


Fuel lines' metal and rubber rotted, due to sitting.

General Comments:

Jeeps are awesome! The J10 I love more than my wife; every time I drive it, I feel like I'm in a parade, with people waving me down "what is that HONCHO?" I've never seen one etc.

Plenty of power, I can drive it with one finger. Turns on a dime, and I can pin you to the seat at take off. It has a Motorcraft 2150 2 bbl jetted pushing 575-600CFM. I haven't hooked to anything that it wouldn't pull, so far that is.

I'm the second owner. I wouldn't sell it for $20 grand.

Only 70 miles on it when you got it 19 years after it was built?

Definitely was "sitting"--why?

Probably meant 70K miles, not 70; still low miles for a 19 year old vehicle, but then this was not something a non-masochist would want to drive on long trips, even when it was new.

This truck is amazing!


When I got the truck, it had a bad water pump, the seats were torn up, and it had a wooden bed that was completely rotted through. Also, it had been painted Sea Green by its previous owner.

General Comments:

Now that I've painted it and replaced the bed and the water pump, it runs like it's almost new.

The 4 wheel drive is great and the truck is so reliable it's not even funny.

About how much would it cost to restore the same kind of vehicle if it's been sitting without a start for about 5-6 years?

1981 Jeep J10 from North America


I have owned a 1981 Jeep J10 since 1981. He has the 258 with Auto-Transmission. I put a winch and an 8 foot Meyers plow on him. The only problem I have ever had was at 110,000 I had to replace the transmission. This was after about 7 years of plowing snow every winter. Some winters we have had accumulations of more than 20 feet of snow. Thats a lot of plowing. I would never sell this guy, he is a very reliable, hard working truck. I think after this winter I will retire him from his many years of hard work and take him home from the mountains and back to the farm. I will use him for running errands on the farm. The Jeep J10 Pick-up is one good work truck. Besides that, I think the J-10 is also a very reliable truck and in my opinion a Good-looking truck as well.

I will have to strongly agree with you. I have 1980 J10, and I am very hard on it when I go mudding. It seems, the harder I am the better it runs... Now mind you that the truck has set for about 6to8 years... Then one day I decided to start driving it. So I stuck a battery in it and poured some gas in the carb... Been driving it every since... It has amazed me and it is only going to get better with the plans I have...

Mine is now running after sitting for 23 years. Mechanic picked it up on his flatbed and brought it to his shop. Fresh gas, oil, gas in the carb, and she fired right up! It hadn't been started since 1992.

Update 11/14/15: Just got it back from mechanic. It has an all new gas tank, radiator, brakes, brake lines, master cylinder, tranny lines, exhaust system, wheels, tires, etc. She is running strong.
