Hello, everyone! I'm pretty new to the jeepforum, but I've lurked for quite sometime for tips on repairs!
I bought my dream car- 87 Woody (Imelda), almost 3 years ago. She ran for awhile, then threw a rod. She's been sitting for the last 2 years and I'm ready to fix her up, finally! I'm pretty new to working on cars and have only ever worked on my 96 Grand Cherokee. I have 3 questions:
1) Aside from the engine, what are the first things that I need to look at/repair in order to get her road ready?
2) Believe me when I say that I do realize how ridiculous this question is. I'm not expecting to get 89 miles to the gallon, but she currently has an original AMC 360 and I hate to lose that, but I was lucky to get 8 miles to the gallon before she died. What is the best city driving gas mileage I can expect to get out of her without converting to fuel injection? What can I do to improve gas mileage?
3) I'd like to install 3rd row seating, and I'm torn between jump seats (to keep some of the cargo space) and a full 3rd row, can I get some opinions on that?
