Folks,

I need to sell my '68 Wagoneer. You folks have been very kind to me in supporting my frantic hobby. More than kind! I have had 10 good years of enjoyment out of my ride, and a lot of this...

The pickup is a 2500 series Dodge, 1994, with a V10. 5spd manual, which is fine with me. It has its share of bugs, which I will eventually work out.

I still have the '53 Dodge, and still have the...

My Waggy: Well I did it....

Now officially off the road. Had to do it, as I needed a pickup truck to handle cargo that is bulkier and heavier than the Wagoneer can handle, and have decided that I can't afford to keep three...

Yes, it is time. I've enjoyed owning and driving this wonderful piece of American automotive history, but find it impractical in many ways, including that it cannot carry a decent payload, but still...

You're probably OK if the tires were turning freely during the tow, and not scuffing excessively.

The ignition module is a classic failure item on the later FSJs. You should order a few of them...

You're gonna break tools.

Guarantee then becomes key.

Be they as they're made.


What's the quality?

Where they're made you're not to know.

I bought my Wagoneer because it is a sturdy vehicle, and time-tested. In my family we have always been strong believers in the old school stuff, coz it works, and you know whatcha got. And whatcha...

I calculated 12-14 with mine when I ever tried. Gave up. It holds about 16" vacuum cruising down the highway at turnpike speeds, so it's doing the best it can.

Exactly. The original equipment is fine. These flexyfans are for top-end HP draw, where you are red-lining at about 8K RPM. This is not a four-wheel-drive app in my belief. The way I've gotten...

Good that the 3-way turned out successful. But too bad we can't make a motor that does this without the aid of a converter.

On that note it might be a good idea to find out why the numbers were...
