1982 Full Size Jeep J-10 stepside pickup truck. 4 wheel drive, with Hi and Lo. 4 inch lift kit done with leaf springs and professionally installed 4 years ago. The lift kit is from BJ's Offroad out of California, specifically made for this model Jeep. It's in great shape, especially for its year. Nice paint job and even better pin striping, that gives it a classy look. This is a super cool pickup, It's a very rare find around these parts, especially in this shape. It's also a rare find in the country. Made less than 2000 of these "total" for all years available, I understand. They stopped making them in 1987. This really is a great, unique Jeep to be someone's daily driver. 13 Yr old paint, professional pin stripping, new floor boards professionally done(last year). New durable vinyl, color matched floor covering.
This has a 5 speed, that was completely rebuilt, only because someone didn't know how to change the transmission fluid.
This J-10 runs and drives very well and can be driven with confidence.
The Jeep is virtually rust free, no concerns to speak of in all but one of the usual hot spots for these Jeeps (see cons: below). There are only two rust through spots that I discovered after having the floors professionally replaced, and that is behind the drivers seat along the back wall, and rocker board in front of the driver door. I didn't discover it until after the floorpan work was done and chose not to fix it (see the dropbox link for pics of everything). I can assure all, that the work that gets done on my Jeeps gets done by professionals and is quality work. The bed of the truck is in 100% flawless shape. The exhaust is less than 4 years old. I just painted a DIY bed liner coating on the flawless, dent free and rust free bed. Original exterior color, not original paint. I will note that the original seats are not installed but they will come with the purchase. I currently have Grand Wagoneer seats with seat covers on them. It is the best J-10 stepside for sale in New England for many years.
As a point of reference, I've been buying, collecting and selling jeeps for over 16 years, and an admirer for over 40. I'm not in the used car business, so what I've collected and sold over the years is for my personal enjoyment, wants and needs, that's all. I have to believe this makes me knowledgeable enough and experienced enough to place this J-10 stepside, at one of the best for sale in New England within the last 15 years, and I'm always looking. There have been nicer ones for sale in the US, but it's still a rare bread. It's lifted, but still a classy clean look. It's a 6 cylinder, but it makes it uniquely qualified for a daily driver and around the city. The large national auction companies that televise, are getting more and more money for these, and they're selling well. My price point is right in line with the market.
Pros: New rebuilt transmission. New floor pans. No rust in the many usual Jeep spots (see cons). Great for a daily driver. Sharp pin-striping for a unique look. All the gauges and mechanicals work as they should. More fuel efficient 6 cyl.
Cons: Leak somewhere at the top of the gas tank that comes into play for a brief bit after fill ups. The only two rust spots on the truck are behind the drivers seat (it does go through), and the rocker in front of the driver door (as mentioned above, and it goes though as well) A little bubbling is happening above the driver front wheel well also.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I invite any and all to come see it and drive it. I have the title in hand.
