I am leaving the country so I need to sell this project.

I got a really nice 62 body from Georgia. There is zero rust on it. It does have a little parking lot rash, some scratches and the rear tailgate has a dent that would be best if it was repaired. I have had the truck since 2012 and I have very slowly been collecting OEM and NOS parts for it. I have about $5k (with receipts) in OEM & NOS parts for the body an interior. Some really outstanding parts like one of the last dash caps out there that cost $750. It has no windshield but I have the gasket and all the rest of the glass is really nice. The 62 was complete when I got it besides the axles being gone, the engine was also blown and I tossed it. All body, interior and wiring is here and complete and uncut and not trashed. I stripped the truck down as I was going to paint it. However the stock paint is savable, I am just not a fan of the old electric blue. I do have the frame for the 62 also which is seriously mint, zero rust. I also have the trans + t-case. I have removed all the factory sound deadening on the floor in the truck. Before I tore it down I tossed a battery in it and tried all power windows and door locks plus wipers, lights, ect. Only thing that didn't work was one rear door power lock. All parts from tear down are bagged and tagged and boxed up. I got a like new ProCar Elite Lumbar seat for the drivers seat.


I have two very nice rust free FZJ80 frames. One I have already started the fabrication on to put the 62 body on it. I have removed all body mounts, shortened the frame 5" so it has a 108 wheelbase and I have reinforced where it was shortened with 1/4" & 3/16's plate. This is no hack job, I know what I am doing and I have nice tools. The chassis has locked FZJ axles with Low Range Off-Road wiring kits, ARB style switches. They work excellent. Both axles are rebuilt with new brakes all around. Both panhards have Slee weld in adjusters. It sits on Slee 4" coils, HDP in the back. Front axle I did a cut & turn on setting caster at 4.5*. Steering is GM 1-ton Y-link with a King damper. I have both FJ80 and FJ60 steering boxes. Like I say I have two 80-series frames, one is untouched. The other like I say I have shortened, I am also currently working on making body mounts to fit the 62 body and lengthen the rear frame rails 6". I have RuffStuff 12" coilover towers and I am planning to fit some 12" King c/o's. I have an untouched stock cross member and I also have one modified for a 4L60e trans. I got some other stuff like fuel lines, all the brake lines, A/C lines, p/s lines, ect ect ect. I think I have both 80 & 62 fuel tanks.

I am thinking I need to let this project go because my only other choice will be to put it in storage for 2, 3 or even 5+yrs.

I got a build thread going on this truck in the 60-series section.

Heya- are u offloading your 62 frame by chance?


YES! It needs a home badly, I really don't want to cut it up and recycle it.
