Costa Rica: The truck is a 1983 model. The original engine is a six cylinder 4.2 liter AMC, but I changed it for a six cylinder diesel SD33 Nissan. The original transmission is a T176 and the axles are Dana 60 rear and front. Basically this is a CJ7 transformed into a CJ10 pick-up. In my opinion it is a mix of a CJ7 with a Wrangler. Giving as a result a beauty beast called CJ10.


CJ10s were brought to Costa Rica by the US Government as a donation to the Costa Rican Government; they used it for just six years. I have two of these trucks; at this moment they are in restoration, because they were very damaged.


The pictures are all of one of the CJ10 and over its wagon was a CJ5. There are two different cars in one picture. Cause the real CJ10 wagon is in another picture. You can see the complete CJ10 in yellow; the rest is the body of a CJ5 model '67 with a 225 Buick V6 original. Just 10 of those cars arrived to Costa Rica.


I need brake parts for the CJ10
