One very yellow 1968 Jeep Gladiator J3000

Postby ddversatile » Sun Aug 19, 2018 9:50 pm

Hi, I'm new around here and would like to show you guys my FSJ. I grew up with jeep trucks (Dad has a 1973 J4000 360/TH400/Quadratrac 4bbl dual pipes and a 77' J20 Levis 360/TH400/Quadratrac 2bbl.)

This is my first truck, and Im only 16, Im not a punk don't worry I appraciate everything about my rig and I take great pride in her!

Shes a 1968 Kaiser/Jeep Gladiator J3000, with the 327 V8, T18 4 speed and Dana 20 t-case, Dana 44 closed knuckle front and dana 44 rear.

The truck has been in Alberta (where i live) its whole life, I have the original Owner manual and service booklet with the dealers signature and date, all that good stuff!

Now to the good stuff, when I bough her she was two-tone but not in a good way, LOL. The box was a faded tonka truck yellow :P , the cab was sort-of corvette yellow, this spring i repainted her, added more chrome, fixed rust (removed bondo) and redid the flooring and a whole bunch of other stuff

This was her, in her two levels of yellow :evil:

Rust from bedseams all gone :D

Coming home :D :D

And As she is now, the exterior is basically done, but lately the clutch linkage has a few simple wore bits that failed, and Dad replaced the rear output seal on the Dana 20 but the shims were kaput, so its grinding in 2H right now, so im waiting on a shim kit for 4 wheel parts

I plan on going for steelies, hubcaps with white wall tires, dual exhaust and possible efi down the road, :D

Welcome to the forum! WOW! that's Yellow! But it looks really good! It's amazing a Jeep that old, living in Alberta, has survived and it looks so darn good. You'll like this board, lots of friendly folks and good advice.

BTW, my significant other is from Alberta.
