    Default FSJ: 1986 Grand Wagoneer

    Looking at a project for a family vehicle. Found a decent 1986 Grand Wagoneer 4x4 for a good price from a friend. I kind of miss my old XJ and, no offense to anyone, im not a fan of the H.O. style Xj so was leaning twords the original Jeep Station Wagon. Lol. Anyone else here have one?

    We had one when I was a kid. Big, and heavy. 5000# if I remember correctly. Used one when I was working for he forest service too. Tended to rattle a lot on washboard roads. Other than that, very solid rig. You can cut the fenders and run 44s in the stock wheel wells without a lift too
    230 hp 4.3L Chevy
    Built 4L60E with manual lockout
    Atlas 4 speed
    Griffin radiator
    On board air
    Warn 9.5ti on custom bumper
    7.5" RE front and bastard pack rear on custom long arms
    30 gal gas tank
    lockers
    And a bunch of other stuff

    I'm offended... Oh wait..... I'm an adult, I don't care... I think it'd be an awesome family vehicle... and even more so an awesome replacement for an XJ... Was what I was looking for when I had to let my 98 XJ go, was an FSJ to build up.. Look forward to seeing pics of it if you decide to get it and even more so if you build it up...

    I think that sounds like an awesome idea. Just pray that the price of gas stays low, I hear those AMC 360s can be thirsty fellas.

    TBH, even though I own a late-model XJ, I secretly like the look of the early model ones a bit better. Don't tell Tony I said that
