Hi everyone,

Drove the Wagon out of the garage today under its own power. Last time it drove under its own power it was 2011. I picked it up in 2014. Did a short test hop down the dirt road & back. It still needs some fine tuning. Hope to get it registered & legal next month.

Kind of skipped ahead on the build thread but just now figured out how to post pics.

Thanks to everyone for posting all there Wagoneer knowledge here.

Saved another from the bone yard,

Dave

Nice looking rig. Congrats on driving it again.. Always a great feeling especially after being under the wrench for a while.

Thanks it is a 4'' combo lift. The front is Hell Creek & rear is Rough Country. I messed up on the rear type of spring.

A bit higher in the back but I hope it might settle or when I get some weight back there it wont be as high.

Thanks,

It is in pretty good shape considering sitting in the backcountry of Idaho for 15-20 years after my Uncle brought it here. It was used as an airport rig to get to & from a cabin.

Front seal on the tranny leaks so need to change that with the donor transmission now that I know the engine runs decent.

Need to find a roof rack. Stock one was leaking so I filled in the holes.

Get it registered soon & keep testing it locally before I venture to far with it.

Eventually get the 401 out of my donor rig rebuilt & swap out the current 360.(this winters project)

I have part of the new headliner in just trying to figure out what to do on the seam where they join. Still cant find a source for the original snap in type gap seal.

Mainly just want to get it road safe & do a few summer camping/fishing trips with it & take it hunting this fall.

On the roof rack, they just used a rubber wellnut for the holes. Depending on how you filled the holes in, you can new ones from BJ's Offroad and reinstall.



On the headliner snap in piece, good luck. Lol. If you find a source, let us all know. Mine is held in with broken pieces for now.
Rig looks good btw.
