Automan2164 Posted January 12, 2010 Share Posted January 12, 2010 i have always been on the lookout for a good Grand Wagoneer or J-truck for a DD with style and towing capabilities, but have never found one in good shape/at the right time... A few weeks ago one of the cops dropped off his squad for service (also a jeep nut), and told me about his new purchase, a 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. 100K, 360, 727, D44's, with limited slip in rear. Black, with wood sides, and tan interior... Motor out of an '86, didn't run. He got it for $800. :fs1: Took it home, threw a ignition module at it, and got it running good on the old stale gas in it, on the fisrt crank. He also just did the rear main and pan gasket in the past week. Still dripping a bit from the timing cover. Brand new coopers, and minimal rust. Now his wife wants it gone, because its taking up her spot in the garage, and he wants to turn it and make some quick cash. He's asking $2500 to start. I don't have the cash, but the ZJ could hit the bricks if needed... I like it, but a FSJ would have a ton more style. 8) I might even talk myself into getting a loan for it, as it wouldn't be much. :shake: Pics: I am looking for opinions on the drivetrain... I think from what I do know about these things, its pretty stout. Anyone know of things to look for? It sat for a year or so I think... So, what would you do? :brows: Rob L.
