Front Fenders.....$265 each
Rear Fenders......$165 each
Windscreen.........$165
Hood...................$215
Trunk...................$215
Air Dam...............$190

Full kit.................$1600

All prices plus shipping.
total of above is $1215

Why is the "full kit" nearly $400 more? Are there extra bits included in the "full kit" that are not listed in the detailed section above?
(just curious :smt006 )
My junk pile:
71 Jeep J4600 Gladiator. Restored w/#s matching engine. My WeeBeasty.
70 1600 legit 2nd owner. Stroked and bored.
68 1600 parted out
70 2000 parting out
69 2000 parted out
looking for more.

Just take pics and when you're home at night and cant make any more noises, start a thread! haha

OP is racing this weekend, so maybe next week he will reply to ya.

I look forward to what comes of this

Regarding the weight of the fiberglass parts? I have received my complete Japco kit and weighed the parts. The trunk is 3 pounds compared to your stock part 13 pounds. The hood is 7 pounds the stock is 25. Fenders are 10 pound savings each. Rule of thumb on horse power is 10 pounds equals 1 hp. I hope your questions are answered now. :roll:

Obviously late to the party, however, any updates?
