For Sale CO, USA - 81 BJ42 turbo diesel $15k

Vehicle Model
  1. 40 Series
Location
Castle Rock, Colorado United States
Mileage
75000
Color
Blue
I got a BJ42 from our brethren up north about 6 years ago. It got a complete engine rebuild 75,000 miles ago, with a garrett turbo and a 5-speed from some BJ60.
The trans/xfer package came from spectre as rebuilt. I get about 23-24mpg no matter how I drive, highway or around town, but I usually treat my equipment well.
That tells me that the 4.10 gears are eating economy, and I'd bet some 3.73s would boost that a few mpg.
The bucket seats are original, but need upholstery and foam. The jump seats are gone. Roll bar is nice.
Last summer, a saginaw setup was installed.

The steel wheels are the old OEM style 16" from city racer. (no hubcaps)
A bit more than half the tread left on the 5 duratracs 215/85R16, as I do 5 tire rotation every oil change at 4000 miles.
Currently, it has the 24v setup, but I do have a 12v diesel alternator waiting to be put in.
About a year ago, I changed out the radiator for an aftermarket 4-core copper version.

$15,000 price dropped

I would absolutely love to see someone fit the old patina body on the solid diesel's frame, but yeah, its not something i should be concerned about if I'm letting them go.
The goal is to finance a different project. $34k is an arbitrary number, but getting around there would be very helpful.

I keep getting asked to sell the cruisers separately.
Honestly, if someone wanted the BJ for $27k, that could work.
And probably $5k for the patina.

Bug catcher doors just need new rubber and the bottoms patched. They have all the hardware and function great. One of the knobs is sitting on my desk, as i was trying to cast replicas. I also borrowed another cruiserhead's windshield vent knob so i can cast those as well. If anyone is in need, id have more motivation to prioritize those projects amongst the many underway.
