The Gladiator name was dropped after 1971, after which the line was known simply as the Jeep pickup. The pickups were designated as J2000 and J4000 models (the 3000 series was dropped in 1971) until 1973, then as J10 and J20 models from 1974 to 1988.
From 1971 to 1972 Jeep pickups offered the AMC 304cuin (5.0L) 210hp (157kW; 213PS) V8 as an optional engine.
The AMC 258cuin (4.2L) I6 engine was introduced in 1972 and offered through 1988. The engine produced 112hp (84kW; 114PS) and 210lb·ft (285N·m) of torque.
TheAMC 360cu in (5.9L) was offered in 1971 and through 1988. Producing in early versions 175hp (130kW; 177PS) and 245lb·ft (332N·m) of torque. Later 360s produced 195hp (145kW; 198PS) and 295lb·ft (400N·m) of torque.
The model designations were simplified for 1974, with the J-2000 becoming the J-10 and the J-4000 changed to J-20. Larger brakes were made standard and the turning radius reduced. The Quadra-Trac system was now available with all engines.
The AMC 401cuin (6.6L) was offered from 1974 through 1978. These engines are known for their toughness and excellent power output. The 401 produced 225hp (168kW; 228PS) and 320lb·ft (434N·m) of torque.
For 1977, Jeep J-10 pickups includedDana's manual four-wheel-drive system, a more powerful 258cuin (4.2L) six-cylinder engine, and heavier axle tubes, while power front disc brakes became standard equipment and the considerably greater GWV capacity J-20s included AMC's 360cuin (5.9L) V8 engine.The 401cuin (6.6L) engine was optional, as well as full-timeQuadra-Tracand both automatic and manual transmissions.
1983 saw the new full-time four-wheel drive system, Selec-Trac, replace Quadra-Trac;
Chryslerbought out AMC in 1987. The full-size Jeep Pickup line was not only an aging model, but also competed directly with the broader range ofDodgetrucks. Chrysler discontinued the full-size Jeep trucks, but continued to build the luxurious and highly profitableGrand Wagoneer, which shared the chassis with the large pickups.
After the Chrysler buyout, the compactJeep Comanchepickup (based on theJeep Cherokee (XJ)platform) received only minor changes and its production continued until 1992.
