  • 79 J10 Honcho - abcdk5

    Hey everyone! Glad we have this site.
    My 79 j10 Honcho

    A not so good pic taken ten years ago before digital cameras. I had already redone my truck ten years before that. Well the new eventually wore off again so now it's under another major renovation. I bought it in 1985. I've owned it for 26 years. I had a 68 CJ5 I traded in for it because I fell in love with Jeeps and these trucks.

    Some stuff I did way back to it and she still runs strong and sounds good:
    body work, paint and clear coat by me.
    new rebuilt turbo 400 with low range unit
    new brakes, calipers, front rotors, front outer axle u joints
    rear brakes and guts
    mile marker quadratrac conversion to part time
    superwinch locking hubs
    switched to 4350 4bbl and amc intake
    edelbrock performer cam and lifters
    edelbrock timing chain and gears
    small block chevy pushrods
    trw forged aluminum pistons
    chrome moly rings
    new oil pump, water pump
    Hooker headers
    me and a friend of mine made the custom front bumper with the amc brush guard cut and welded to the top,
    and the custom rear bumper, both made from schedule 40 2 " pipe
    added lights on rollbar
    new front grill insert
    dual Nissan electric fans
    three row radiator
    new starter
    extra spring added to front
    2" blocks in rear
    american 15 x 10 wheels

    This time I'm adding new stuff
    edelbrock performer intake
    holley 4150 650cfm

    redo the interior
    body work and paint again
