Fuel Injection on GW's

I am a fairly new offroader(been out twice with a friend) and I am hoping to look for a Grand Wagoneer for my first whellin vehicle. It would also be a daily driver, but I keep hearing how crappy the gas mileage is on them. Just wondering if there's anyway to put a fuel injection system instead of the carb or some other option to cure the only downfall of these beauties. I am hoping to get a '85 or newer. Also any advice on typical equipment needed would be extremely helpful, email me at lasarus22@hotmail.com laters, in Him......and please pray for my GW dreams.....lol.

I have an '89 I bought new. That was the last year made with carbs. Look for a '90 or '91 if you want factory fuel injection. Gas mileage? What's that? I get between 11 -16 mpg, depends on the type of driving, highway or city. I haven't off roaded mine yet. It's in cherry condition with only 78,000 original miles on it. My son is trying to convince me to lift it and do all the other stuff to it that needs doin' to it so he can off road it. I'm tempted since I just got myself a new Liberty.

hey thanks for the great advice. thats the first ive heard about fuel injection...ill keep that in mind. you sound like one of the luckier ones if ur gettin 11-16 mpg,lol. as far as your sons idea of wheelin goes Hes right, to have a non-pretty boy jeep you need to at least gove it a 4" lift with 33"s and some lights. anyone else that can lend me any tips on a fsj would be greatly appreciated. keep tabs on my site when i finally get one....www.geocities.com/lasarus22/intopage.html also anyone that knows a good deal on one near me, surrently washington state would be greatly appreciated. im lookin to spend no more than $1700.00 thanks yaw, laters lasarus

I've NEVER seen or heard of any AMC V-8 that was fuel injected.

Nope; the GW's went to their grave wearing carburetors. One of the last vehicles produced for sale in the US with a carburetor. Definitely the last with an under-dash A/C system from the factory... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> (or at least the last $25,000+ to be sold with such a setup).

True - ALL Grand Wagoneers were carb'd, not fuel injected. If you are willing to put the money in to fuel injection, check out <a href="http://www.customefis.com." target="_blank">www.customefis.com.</a> The person there is an engineer that uses GM parts to make a fuel injection system that is supposedly much better than Holley's. You can order a complete system from him, but I hear is he somewhat back logged with orders (this is just a part-time business for him).

I'd like to do this someday myself...

I think maybe someone is confusing the carbed GW with the XJ based Wagoneer that had the 4.0L.

Okay guys, when I bought my Grand back in '89 I was told that the next year's model was going to be fuel injected. Since I bought the '89 I never did check back to see if the change took place.

Once again - the AMC V8 was never sold with factory fuel injection! I would certainly have it on my 360 if it was available, that's for sure!
