1981 J20 Extended Cab - The Rebuild

I bought a J20 a few years ago (maybe more) after seeing it by the roadside one night along the north coast of Java. 258ci, T18 etc.

I slammed on the brakes of my XJ Cherokee and backed up. There are few FSJ in Indonesia and this thing was rough but.......... bigger than I expected.

My wife tracked it down and got it for Christmas. I rebuilt the axles and broken rings and settled bearings, then replaced the brake master and got the fuel system back to spec.

The fuel tank was baddllly cracked. I spent a weekend with a soldering iron and an old oil bottle piecing it back together, now it is solid.


We had some good times off road, it was awesome.


And then a brake hose burst and it took a year to get back to it. In the end I hired a mechanic just to work through the brakes and replace all the serviceparts and hoses. After a few days it was up and running but looking a bit sorry for its long standing and neglect.

As oosn as I master the pictures, you will see all.

The floors will need welding, the windshield surround, the corners, the bottom of the bed sides. BUT NOTHING UNEXPECTED.

Sounds like a great find and build project. I can’t see the pictures at all. Please try the forum instructions for posting pictures. You will need a third party hosting service like BobblePic and link back to them. The instructions are shown here
