Cripes alfrighty! That's a pile of money for that thing. It has the wrong cab and grille for starters, plus its rust. 

yeah and that weird stainless tailgaite. I just don't want to start off with something like that I want something with a muscle or a razor and not a stepside and not a bedlined bed. 1981 Jeep J10 stepside, 360 cid motor starts fast , runs well. Lots of body mods, cab has 1978 3/4 ton "duck bill " cab top that was chopped lowered and narrowed, looks original. Custom front and rear bumpers with built in Caterpillar lights. Custom front grille and additional lights. Borla dual tip stainless exhaust tip. Galvanized steel stepside bed with Jeep logo on custom stainless steel tailgate made to hold Yeti 85 Tundra cooler and 4 fishing rods. Also has built in chock for motorcycle in bed. Original tailgate will be included. Fully Rhino lined exterior bed and trim. 1965 military truck blackout lights. Autometer Phantom White Gauges, Flaming River custom steering wheel. Wagon wheel rims with 33 inch tires. Truck was parked for over a year so it has some rust issues and the transmission seal leaks trans fluid although recently being rebuilt in Texas. One of a kind truck that is an excellent starter project. Located in Moroni, Utah and has a clear Texas title in hand

yes, the grilles changed over the years.  but the structure behind them is the roughly the same and so you can swap out parts to get the look you want. :L:

Cheat sheet for which grill is which.

 

And yes, you can swap any grille from any FSJ onto any other FSJ.  63-91 had the same underlying sheet metal to support the Rhino grille.  The only difficulty is the extra brackets to support the various grilles that were spot welded in place.  It's simple to duplicate and/or remove any of those brackets as necessary to support your desired transplant.  And for the Razor/Cheese Grater/Egg Crate grilles, there is a bar that is bolted to the hood to complete the look.  It can be hard to come by if you really want one.

All J20s were LWBs. Honchos were only J10 SWBs the ad is wrong.

Both say J20 in the title but then the description says J10 in both.  :dunno:

I’d say that one is worth every penny, being rust free. Fixing rust is one of the worst parts of working on these. I’d rather do anything else on these.

I bet it has the same amount of rust mine has. the tailgate looks the exact same as mine rust wise so I think your right
