The Jeep J Series is, in short, the pickup truck version of the Jeep Wagoneer off-roader. After the takeover by AMC in 1971, it was given AMC V8 engines or 5.9 liters or 6.6 liters. Later in 1972 AMC also offered the Jeep pickup with a 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine. Two-wheel drive was standard, but four-wheel drive was optional, and both manual and automatic gearboxes were available. The Jeep pickup was fitted with full-time four-wheel drive in 1983. Chrysler bought Jeep in 1987 and killed off the Jeep pickup in favor of its sister brand Dodge’s trucks. Haynes has Jeep repair manuals and online maintenance procedures to suit your needs whether you’re a professional mechanic or a DIY car enthusiast. Our Jeep pickup manual will be the ideal guide through every stage of servicing or repairing your car.
