My brother in law recently put his 1982 Wagoneer up for sale, but he offered to give it to me for next to nothing, if I'll just take it off his property for winter! I have the space for it at my house, but I'm afraid I'll be biting off more than I can chew!
It seems to be in great shape. It stalled a bit yesterday after sitting in the cold all day (About 5 - 10 degrees out), but once it was going it was like a tank! The only issues I can see are a possible starter replacement and the heater blower doesn't work. I have no expereince fixing cars, but really would like to start. I have a great friend down the street who would have all the tools I would need to start on some minor fixes.
So, my questions are:
1. Can I replace the blower/fan myself with limited help from a manual and some of you guys?
2. Do these trucks have a history of problems I should be worried about?
Thanks for all your help in advance! I hope this turns out well, because this would make for the ULTIMATE fishing and ski vehicle!
