I am new to the FSJ family. Like many of you, my family has a GW when I was little and I always wanted to own one for myself. I also had a 93 Wrangler that I loved, but sold it to buy my wife's wedding ring (I remind her of that often).
I have narrowed my search down to two 1987 GW's.
Here's my question...
Knowing that GWs are appreciating in value, what modifications can I make to upgrade the systems for maximum reliability, but still keep it's value. I am not buying a project car, but one with low miles, and then I am going to have the great guys at The Motor Masters do any upgrades as needed.
My goal for the GW: I want the capability of making it a daily driver. I do not plan to go off-road more than a dirt/gravel trial to a campsite with the kids.
I talked to another GW owner who said simply install the Juicebox Gold 8 TFI http://www.ebay.com/itm/AMC-JEEP-V8-8-CYL-TFI-UPGRADE-KIT-JUICEBOX-GOLD-8-CRT-PERFORMANCE-QUALITY-/351646809699?fits=Model%3AWagoneer&hash=item51dfc8 7e63:m:m8a8T034hiNYWAvP81O8iwQ&vxp=mtr)
and it will start like a modern car (something my wife will really appreciate). When I talk to the mechanic, he typically uses the MSD EFI.
I have read nearly 50 posts on the forum about every possible outcome and I am more confused than ever.
I know this post will lead to many different opinions, but everything I was reading was at least 3-5 years old.
What I want to know is a what I must do, vs should do, vs like to do.
1) At least do ________
2) The __________ option would be really good and its what most people would want
3) You just won the lottery so ______ is the best system money can buy.
