BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

First it seems Iím in a small group of Wagoneer XJ Limited owners. Although there are many similarities to the Cherokee, the differences are frustrating for a restoration/preservation build. SoÖ All help is welcome!

Looks good man, what kinds of preservation you thinkin about? From the looks of it restoration is minimal at best, least rust wise. But treat it well and you will not be disappointed.
