TOO UGLY?
Jim Werner of Madison, Wisconsin, thought that $200 for this ’79 Jeep J-10 was a good deal for a 4x4 in Wisconsin. It has a 258 six-cylinder and a three-speed manual tranny. He has rewired the taillights (there weren’t any when he bought the truck) and installed Warn lock-out hubs. Jim has also added a custom battery holder, a new fuel line, and a $300 CD deck. He plans to build a toolbox behind the seat, add lights, and get better tires. Jim says, “No matter what my wife thinks, for $200 it can’t be too ugly. Can it?”
