88 Grand Waggy

I friend of mine is thinking of purchasing an 88 Grand Wagoneer. I was wondering what drive trains they usually came with in 1988.

Engine? Transfer case? front axles? rear axle? transmission models? (auto or manual) Power steering? power assist brakes?
Gauges? clock? locking hubs? vacuum actuated hubs? etc....

Thanks

You guys know your Waggy stuff. Thanks again. This Waggy has about 80K miles on it, good compression, and has been well cared for. Asking price is $3500. You guys think it's a fair deal?

for that price it sounds like there might be something wrong with it.

check for rust on the frame by the gas tank and make sure the 4wd works. also test out the windows, especially the tailgate window, and the power door locks. those are usually the problem areas.

Sold my '89 back in the fall of 2002 and got $4000 for it. I was original owner and it had 80,000 original miles on it. It was in real good shape too. Don't know if this helps you at all. Oh yeah, that was in NH.
