1987 Grand Wagoneer with a 4.8 vortec and a 4l60e.

I really should have taken pictures as I went along, however, this is not the last you will see of the "Wild Woody." I still plan on swapping in a bigger power plant (6.0) and a 4l80e. First, I am planning on finishing up the 4wd, new paint, some 2500 HD rims, new axles (I'm thinking 14 bolt), and 35 or 36 inch tires should have it lookin just about right in my eyes. Plenty of other little piddly things I want to mess around with too.

g-off 70: I bought the motor being told it was a 5.3. When went into the computer and tuned out VATS to start it, it showed up as a 4.8. I wanted a 5.3 because you find them everywhere. A low mileage 5.3 can be had for less than $300. I got the motor, tranny, wiring harness, and pcm or $900 shipped from florida. A 6.0 is a little more expensive. I could only find 6.0s for 1500 with just the motor and a 4l80. But now that all the fab is complete I can easily stick a 6.0 in there no problem when I save up the funds. I do plan on pulling out this 4.8 and rebuilding it to make it into a little screamer and stick it in my dad's '61 vette so it will not be going to waste.

gixxerphil: Its gonna stay mine for quite a while now that I got it on the road. Sorry!
