1985 CJ 10 Tug
Mr Tug is a 1985 CJ-10A that was built in Mexico City by the Vam Corporation.
The original price tag on him (which, by the way, is still on the left front fender) was $ 14,790.80,
We were the highest bidder at an auction and got him for a whole $ 281.63 in Nov. 2002.
He Came from Fairchild Airforce Base in Spokane, Wa.
He has the factory Nissan 3.3L Diesel, the transmission and transfercase were missing when we bought him but he would have had a Chrysler 727 automatic and a NP 208 transfercase, with front out-put shaft blocked and locked into low range.
He is 2 wheel drive with a dana 60 rear end
He weighs 6,060 lbs and has a 40,000 lb towing capacity.
He was one of the 2,787 built with a 86" wheelbase.
There was also 809 truck units built with 119" wheelbase.
When we get around to it, we have everything we need to make him into a 4x4 using a T-18 4 speed, Model 20 transfercase and a J-20 front end.
This will make a fun rig for us to play around with.
