1978 Jeep J10 Golden Eagle AMC 360 from North America
Best truck ever made thank you AMC
The engine knocked.
The carburator leaked.
It was just worn out beat up old farm truck.
Tough truck hauls anything and also go through anything. I bough the truck for $500 dollars from a farmer who abused it, but, H ave to say wow the 4x4 (Qudra-trac) works perfect, starts every time. Its been through a lot and I still wouldn't trade it for any thing. The truck is just a beast, but, gets bad gas mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have to agree with you, I own a 78 Golden Eagle quadra-trac V-8 automatic, 4" lift with 33's and I love it. I out-climb all my buddies and their jeeps and FJ's, I even get through the soft sand better than they do, as for the bad mileage I agree, but it's well worth it for this vehicle.
I agree that the '78 J10 is one heck of a truck. I still have my '78 Golden Eagle bought new. Now with 139K miles. Mine has the 360 with 3 speed manual transmission. I get about 10 mpg loaded to the hilt, 10 mpg running empty, or 10 mpg coasting downhill with the engine off! This truck has been through it with me...farmed, ranching, towing boats and cars. It still runs great and I still love it. It also has the Levi package and I have a 6 ton wench on the front. There has never been a tougher truck built in my opinion.
I recently purchased a '78 J10 Levi Strauss edition. It has all the Levi buttons on the door panels and seat. Really cool. I do need a number of things for it to fully restore it back to the best original standards as possible. Any help would be highly appreciated. I still cannot believe as to just how much power there is in that 360. The quad is aw-some. It'll go in and out of anything. Definitely a keeper.
I have a 77 j-10 I would like to sell needs carb kit and battery I can get it to run with some fiddling debating on letting go for scrap hate to do it call 828-389-8725.
