Another New owner here

Hey guys,

Had a great time cruising your sight in preparation to pick up my new ride. I don't actually have it yet, flying to mobile on the 24th to pick it up and drive it back to N. GA...hopefully it makes it.

Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself. I am sure you will be hearing a lot more from me as I start tearing it up and putting it back together.

As far as I can tell from the pictures, looks like it has 33s and a slight lift on it. Previous owner says the 360 is stock and has the qtrac with low range.

Here she is:

well, I honestly don't know that much yet.

It was sold to me as a 75 wagoneer, so I assume that is what it is year wise. Interior is a terrible blue color. Supposedly the engine runs strong and doesn't leak/burn oil, no water leaks.

I am hoping it doesn't require much floor pan work. I plan to freshen the body a bit, but this will be mostly a play/hunting rig for me, so no plans to try to take it back to stock or make a show car out of it. Interior will be completely redone in time, probably also find a way to squeeze some 35's under it in the near future as well.

here are two more pics:

Front is missing a bumper, which is cool because I plan to make my own. Fenders are a bit torn up, that can be fixed easily as well:

Good luck with the plans.

appreciate it. I was looking for a k5 blazer, and i kinda fell upon this on another site. After a little research I decided I had to have it. I am super excited and cannot wait to fly down to get it. I had very modest plans for it, then I started cruising this site...this site is going to be very bad for my bank account.

Welcome to the site!
Nice find there. It appears the front and rear tires are different brand or style. If so, you might want to check the diameter of the tires. With stock Quadratrac being full time 4WD, you need all tires same size to prevent premature wear on the internal differential. As you get to know the QT more this site will help you: http://jubileejeeps.org/quadratrac

The ignition will be Prestolite which was used 75-77. It can be troublesome, a lot of aftermarket ignition modules are junk and don't last long. We have had good luck buying the Borg Warner brand and don't mind paying the higher price. Our 77 J20 had a points distributor conversion on it and we plan to get the electronic breaker kit from Pertronix to make it more reliable.

Good luck on your trip to pick it up!
