I bought this one and one other. It was a 2 for deal. Looking forward to it for sure.  I will more than likely sell the second one. Anxious to get started

Very cool!  I've always loved that body style.  I think that would be the perfect candidate for a GM 6.2L/6.5L diesel swap!!  :D

That is not a bad idea. The motor runs strong now but that will be on the back burners as an option when the time comes.

Moving forward some. The stock intake has been replaced with an Edelbrock preformer topped with an Edelbrock 1406 carburetor.  The carb has been rebuilt with all new parts including off-road needles to help on the steep inclines. A basic tune up and battery are next.

Also picked up a parts wagoneer at the time of purchase just in case.

Don't those have the LA 360? I have the Magnum 5.9 in my Grand Cherokee and it's not a bad motor at all, pretty torquey off idle.

With a towing/RV cam it would probably be close enough to any non-turbo diesel to make it not worth the effort, IMO anyway.

Yes they have the 360.  I am just getting into it but it seems to run pretty good.  Doing a basic tune up on it in the morning.

What amazes me about these is how tight the turning circle is for their size.   My 83 wag guy could turn twice inside what my cj6 could.   Good score man!  Subscribed.

With the weather dropring snow and rain for what seems like weeks, it has slowed progress. With one day proving less wet we test fitted the RTT.

Looking forward to finishing up the fuel injection and cleaning up the wiring from PO and their somewhat attempt.

Looks like a nice one to start on. Just wanted to clarify it is an amc 360 stock not an la 360.
