'88 FSJ - Grand Wagoneer Build
A year and a half ago I picked up a 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer last year with a bad motor and decent body. I love full size jeeps. I've built one Grand Wagoneer and have a couple parts ones. This will be my second build and so far its going pretty good.
The plan is to fully frame off restore, while throwing in some goodies like a 6" lift and 33"s. For the motor, I'm currently looking for a GM 5.3L or 6.0L.
But here's what I started with. A 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with a new 6" BJ's offroad lift kit, and brand new 33" tires. Junk frame, like most here in New England, and a crappy running AMC 360.
The body is not too bad, it needs a fender and a lower rear quarter panel, but its in good shape. Right now I'm thinking I will paint it a navy blue.
Got it in the shop and ready to tear down.
Pulled out the interior while I had power to the seats.
