1974 red AMC Jeep J10

Here is my 1974 AMC Jeep J10.

The day I brought it home.


After I rebuilt the motor and tranny, installed HD lift shackles and add-a-leafs up front, add-a-leafs and blocks out back and 33s. It ran well (even with a cracked head, one dead cylinder, no 4wd, etc., hahaha).


After swapping in 79 J20 axles locked front and rear, new rebuilt heads and cam, D300 t-case, cut fenders, and 35s.


Here is is now. 1 ton axles, custom suspension out back, SOA up front, custom inside, flat bed.

Well I've got to weld in a crossmember where the rear spring hangers are for the rear springs and then cut off the rest of the frame. The bed will stay like that for now. The only other thing that will get added will be a rollcage.

Since the jeep won't ever see the road again (it has not chance of passing inspection) I'm not too worried about covering the tires with fenders.

What do you want to see/read 67?

I don't plan on rolling it over but it may hit a tree or two or maybe a rock. I do plan on being hard on it like some of you are on your cars.

Well I've got an Edlebrock, 600 performer carb and performer intake, K&N stub stak, air filter with air lid, Summit Racing K8600 cam, Hedman headers w.ture dual exhaust that ends with Flowmaster 40 series mufflers right behind the cab, MSD ready-to-run dizzy with 8.5MM wires and a baslter 2 coil, 9.8:1 compression pistons, Flow Kooler water pump with an electric fan, 2000 RPM Stall convertor from B&M (torq master), B&M race ready rebuild kit and shift kit.

I'd have to say...... I have no flippin idea. Hahaha. Stock the motor put out 190 HP and about 230 torque. I'd have to say somewhere around 250-275 HP and over 300 torque. I'm going to try and bring it to a dyno guy up in Concord NH once I get it done and have him help me out with getting it tuned just right and make a couple of pulls. I'd like to see 275 HP with about 350 torque.

you know, ive always thought about getting my card dyno'd, but its so expensive in my areas...ive never seen the reason for spending the money, just to say "it makes this much power"..

the jeep looks mean with those beadlock rims...

The guy that Im going to charges $50 for 3 pulls and after each pull he helps you out to fine tune it the timing and fuel/air ratio so you get the most out of your motor. Thats worth it to me for my jeep.

I can't wait to get it done though. I'm waiting on a guy about 45 minutes north of me to tell me whether or not he'll sell me his super swamper boggers or not for it.
