Thought I was going to replace a leaking wheel cylinder but had to replace both wheel cylinders, both sides pads and drums.

Pulled out the radiator. Kicked the tailgate. Pulled off some more of the paint that's peeling off (I'm gonna save a lot of money stripping the paint at the rate its falling off)

Runs and drives great! No leaks, no codes. 97 5.2/44RE swap, BJs 4 inch springs. Going to drive it for a bit. Get some tires, and work on the interior. Love this rig!

The rears are factory.. But when I got done with the lift with the factory front springs on it had a bad lean to the left. After a bit of research I went with the rancho ra44044 front springs. Setup nice after that.

Drove it! Washed it (sat outside for while) and drove it some more. Stored it at mom's house. Cranked 'Thunderstruck' on the stereo. Can't wait to take it to Ouray.

Last week I got new tires. They are stock size goodyear wrangler radial's.

Then I started working on my front hitch/snow plow mount. The center reciever will come out just under the front bumper, and will be the mounting point for the hydrolic pump for the plow. It's just tacked together in the pics, and I need to get the bumper back on to determine where the rest of the mounting points need to be placed.

maroon 1987 Grand Wagoneer. stock for now...

Does anyone know anything about the throw out fork in the wagoneer? I have to replace it but the new one looks nothing like the old one, can I replace it without replacing the throwout bearing and everything?
