Just Bought a Wagoneer!

Who Hoo! Been looking on All Of Craigslist for months now, looking to replace my '76 (Old Ironsides) with something more family friendly. I really had wanted a '75 WT Cherokee but so few of them exist... Plus my wife said 4 doors was essential, hence the search for a Wagoneer. We live in CA, so pre smog ('75 and earlier) is a huge plus.

I ended up finding a '79 Wagoneer, straight body, no rust, original paint, an Idaho rig. PO had spent a TON of effort getting it mechanically cherry. He bought a BJs/S&J engine (which still has 4 years left on warranty), which has 5000 miles on it. He rebuilt the TH400, and spent a lot of effort getting the ride squeak free, He replaced all window and door seals. He replaced the carpet. He put a headlight relay harness. All smog equipment is there. With the sale came a huge file of all the work, which included a maintenance schedule of all fluid changes.

Everything works from the cruise control to the rear window to the AC!

While I am sad to send Old Ironsides down the road (I'm going to part it out and hope that members will carry on its legacy), we are all super excited about having a new FSJ in our family! The best part is that my wife is all fired up about driving it all the time!!

Cheers,

'79 Wagoneer

Its been so long since I've tried, I cant remember how to do it, and couldn't find a sticky either. Does it have to be a 3rd party deal? Sometimes I see pics members have posted, and other times its a question mark.
There are a bunch in Dropbox:

Just a quick FYI, I tried experimenting with your dropbox link and discovered that if you right-click on the pic, then choose "open image in new tab", then copy the URL from that browser tab, then back here just click on the "INSERT IMAGE" icon and paste that entire URL into to pop-up window here, it'll show the pic in the thread for you:

Q: Why'd you kidnap that midget astronaut?

I never saw this one driving around, though honestly I've only ever seen 2 besides mine, both in this style. One of them actually pulled up behind me at a Chevron station, so we talked for a few minutes about all the problems with his. LOL

I think you're forgetting to right click on the pic and "open in new tab", then copying the URL from that new tab.

Yes, but into that you should be pasting the URL of the tab that you did the "open image in new tab" step in.
