Seller offering a 1985 Jeep J-10 truck with 500 miles on re-manufactured engine for $15,500. The current owner has done a lot of work on the truck including a rebuilt transmission, transfer case, and brake system, new carburetor and radiator, reupholstered seat and new door panels, newer high quality paint job, an upgraded audio system, and probably one of the most practical additions – Rhino-lined bed, interior, cab top, and tailgate. Also note the custom solid steel front bumper with a 8,000lb winch. Pictures show some gentle use – missing driver side headlight stands out.
The Jeep J-series of full-size trucks were built between 1962 and 1988. Until 1971 the Jeep was known as the Gladiator. Thereafter, it was just referred to as a J-10 or a Jeep truck. A rebodied version of the J-10 was produced from 1981-1985. The AMC 4.2L and 5.9L I6 engines were offered in 1985. The 4.2L could produce 112 hp while its 5.6L counterpart could produce 175 hp. When Chrysler bought AMC in 1987 it discontinued the Jeep line of full-size trucks as competitor to its Dodge brand. The compact Jeep Comanche was produced until 1992. Since 2002 Jeep has shown several concept trucks to the public. The 2005 Gladiator concept, similar to the Wrangler, had an open-air canvas roof, fold-down windshield, removable doors, and an expandable truck bed.
