What is a J-3000, 1/2t, 3/4t? The Jeep tech sections just says the J-3000 was discontinued in 71 but doesn't say the GVWR or anyting. does anyone know this. I've got a chance to by a 69 J-3000, 350, 3speed. Just wondering...

Re: J-3000?

According to "Standard Catalog Of 4X4's," a J-3500 or J-3600 is a 1/2 ton. A J-3700 is a 3/4 ton and a J-3800 is a 1 ton. I suspect that the 3500/3600/3700/3800 is part of the serial # and not on the outside of the vehicle. If you count the nuts on the wheels. you can tell easily. 5 would be 1/2 ton, 6 would be 3/4 ton and I think 8 would be 1 ton.

Re: J-3000?

The J-3000 is a long bed and J-2000 is a short bed. That's the main difference.

The the J-2000, -3000, and -4000 (yes, there is a 4000. I own one.) names were carried by Jeep until 1974, when they were replaced by the (well-known) J10/J20 designation. Mine is a 1973 with a 7355 GVWR.

I'm big. I'm heavy. I've got true four wheel drive. Therefor, I own the road!
