    1970 Jeep J-200

    I just purchased this beast a few weeks ago. I'll probably get flamed, but my plans are to build this into a slightly street-able rock crawler. I was searching the internet looking for parts and came across this forum and figured I would drop in.

    Here's a couple pic's:

    I won't have any questions about the truck I don't think, given that it's not going to be a restoration project. Somebody has already changed the running gear. Front axle is a D60 and the rear is a D70HD, th350 tranny with a chevy np205 transfer case). They did reuse the leaf springs though but, I plan on removing the those and installing a 4 link set up on the front and rear. One of the inner fender wells is rusted out and needs to be replaced and the front windshield is cracked and needs to be replaced. The floor pans are rusted out as well and have been replaced with old license plates and stop signs lol. I was able to find floor replacement pans online for these. But, I am struggling with finding the inner fender well and a windshield, in case anyone reading this might have one.

    *EDIT* So I do have a question! It looks the Jeep Wagoneer's and the J series truck share the same parts as it pertains to the front of each from like '63 up into the '70's. Can someone confirm this?

    Seeing what it will look like with 42's underneath it.

    Welcome Trailabite!
    Jeeps were meant to be custom from the very beginning. Your vision for the perfect ride sounds like a winner to me. We like original examples, but customs are equally impressive.
