1978 Jeep J10 HONCHO GLADIATOR
HISTORY

The Jeep Honcho was a trim package on the J10 pickup, offered from 1976-1983. It consisted of bold striping and decals, and was offered with factory extras such as the Levi’s interior or a roll bar. The content of the Honcho package varied from year to year, but “always included the wide-track look of the Cherokee Chief.” The Honcho was one in a series of special decal packages offered for J-Series trucks in the mid to late 1970s, which included the Golden Eagle and the “10-4” which offered an optional Citizens’ Band radio along with the decals. The Honcho package was only available on the sportside (stepside) and short bed trucks. Between 1980 and 1983, only 1,264 of the sportside versions were produced.
