I want to prove ya don't need money to make things happen if ur smart (smart buyer) and buget the jeeps need u can still build a bad@$$ rig I choose a 89 grand wagoneer. I know these things are beast and suck gas but the money I save on the build will make it allright. First and for most I'm doing most of the work on it myself in a single stall garage with one outlet lol its all ya need. I bought it 2 months ago I allready replace the power steering pump water pumper all the hoses belts and fluids. Odds and ends and only cost roughly $600. That's also what I piad for it I know what ur thinking its a dump but all in all its about a 7 out of 10 only because it lacks some suspention and big tires / lift what I'm getting to the best for the least fare is fair. I'm in the process of painting it gunmetal the whole thing and yes I got ride of the wood I didn't want to but it was spoting rust under a few spots and $700 for the new wood package is going to tires.
I have not clear coated yet but plan on it. So top it off so far in it $1,300 when I'm done should be close to 5 grand then I will think its time to vamp it up so its cherry and will be broke for ten years lol
Brings back memories, my Dad had one of the first Wagoneers. A brand new POS by the way, he returned it very quickly and regretted the loss of his Willys Wagon. He did have some later models but that first one was junk.
