Seven Reasons Why the CJ-10 Remains Iconic
You certainly won’t find a shortage of fans for the CJ-10.
Nearly thirty years after the Jeep was discontinued by AMC, it still has a huge following among enthusiasts around the world. And with good reason, as highlighted in a recent Four Wheeler report.
First built in the early ‘80s, the CJ-10’s appeal is stronger than ever, so we’ve pulled together seven facts from the Four Wheeler story that speak to the legendary appeal of the Jeep.
1. The first CJ-10s were built to compete against the Toyota FJ-45 pickup and the Land Rover 109 pickup.
2. The pickup was available in three engine choices: a 2.5L AMC four-cylinder, 4.2L AMC six-cylinder, or a 3.3L Nissan naturally aspirated diesel.
3. The CJ-10’s doors and top are reminiscent of the CJ-8.
4. Nearly 300 CJ-10s were built from ’81 to ’83 in South Bend, Indiana, at the AMC Jeep facility.
5. The pick-up was tested as a potential Australian military vehicle but wasn’t used because of the price of the Jeep.
6. The CJ-10A, a shortened variant of the CJ-10, was produced from ’84 to ’86.
7. Most of the remaining CJ-10s are in the hands of private collectors.http://love4x4.net/seven-reasons-cj-10-remains-iconic-2/http://love4x4.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/jeep-cj-10.jpghttp://love4x4.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/jeep-cj-10-150x150.jpgJeep
