Parting J4000
12/08/10 at 22:26:19
 
Time has come to part out a 1972 J4000 jeep pickup 4x4. I believe its a 3/4 or 1 ton. 16" wheels. Truck runs. I was intrested in the heads, but looking at the manifolds someone may of put a newer 360 in it. Will have to pull valve cover. If there's parts you think I should save let me know. Truck has a plow on it which I believe came off a old Willy's Jeep. It is run off a belt off engine. Garry

Engine is out along with t-18 4speed trans with auxillary. Truck has dana's in it. Front axles have disconnects on the hubs. The engine has 1971 heads on it. I will be keeping the engine. Does anybody know if the truck flywheel on this 360 be used on a 1974 javelin 360 with a t-10. Thanks Garry

Is this 5 lug or 8 lug?  Some had the very rare (one year only) Dana 60-2 rear axles.  5 on 5 1/2" pattern with a semi floating 1 1/2" diameter 35 spline axle.  Great to have narrowed for a CJ.

If they are 8lug axles I would be interested in the pair for my Honcho Tow rig build . . .

Took a look at the truck. It has 5 lugs x 3.25" . Not sure so I thought I show a couple of pictures. Maybe someone could identify the front and rear ends. Garry

idrambler Thanks for that site I'll be checking it out. I'm not sure on whether its a 1'2, or 3'4 ton. I bought the truck off a friend just for the engine. It has a plow on it made in Michigan . Pump runs off the existing pulleys on the truck. I thought the truck looked heavier built than a 1'2 ton with 16" wheels. I have been stripping it this past week to try and save some good parts someone might need.It will be going to the wrecking yard in spring. The truck was used a few times a year to clear snow at my fathers house. He is in the banana belt of Ontario and did not get much snow. Truck also had the custom cab on it. I have too many projects and if it can help someone and help me in getting a few parts for the Gremlin drag car I'm happy. Garry  ps the rgw is 02400kg and the vehicle weight is 01980kg
