1979 Jeep J-10 Honcho


Engine Type:
6-Cylinder

Transmission Type:
4-Speed

Truck Information:
Jeep trucks have been in production since 1947. The first one introduced – the Willys-Overland – was marketed to the modern farmer and was available in four-wheel drive, a feature companies like Ford and Chevrolet did not offer until nearly a decade later. The Willys-Overland was replaced in 1962 by the Jeep Gladiator, which became known as the “J-Series” beginning in 1971. In production until 1987, this was Jeep’s longest running pickup truck line. Jeep offered three trim packages for the J-10 pickup, including The Honcho (or “Boss”) which included bold stripping and decals. See the square headlights? That was an updated feature for the 1979 model. Mounted on the front of this truck is a Warn Zeon 12-volt electric winch; it has a pull capacity of 12,000 pounds or about the weight of an adult elephant. Top Speed: 70+ MPH
