The J-4000 is a follow-on model to the former Jeep Gladiator series of full-size pickups and was produced by American Motors from 1970 to 1987. Its general layout is front-engine with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, fed by a three or four speed automatic transmission. The J-4000 models feature a longer wheelbase of 132 inches and were renamed to J20’s one year after this particular example was built, in 1974.
This series of Jeeps are well-known for their go-anywhere abilities as well as an imposing presence on the road. Weighing around two tons, the Jeep pickups came in a wide range of configurations and also in various cab styles.
This particular example from 1973 features the 360 V8 engine from AMC, Hydramatic automatic transmission and Townside-Pickup body style. The J-4000 model tipped the scales at a portly 2267 kg when it first left the factory.
This 1973 Jeep J-4000 is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates as part of a car collection.
