'89 GW in MI

Hello! Long time Jeep nut always dreamed of a GW but figured it would never happen. Looking for a new DD for the wife and stumbled across one locally in decent shape for a great price!

The bad:
- doesn't idle properly
- rear frame crossmember needs replaced
- minor bodywork

Looking forward to interacting on the forum for help bringing this back to it's former glory!

congratulations !

looks like a good one,.....unique color.

those BFG's look good on there, wish they still made that sidewall design.

this is a good forum, a lot of good folks here to help.

Awesome! You picked a good first one! If it does not idle correctly, 8 out of 10 times its a vacuum leak. We have more vacuum lines on these things than most parts stores have in stock. Take your time, get to know your hand vacuum pump and vacuum diagram and troubleshoot away! If you need help, post up; that's the whole reason this forum exists!
