All: My husband and I are searching out a Wagoneer for daily (street) use...we're not into off-roading but ARE into Wags.
To add to the Q&A on this topic, your feedback to the following questions would really mean a lot:
1) Seems like these are very interchangeable, parts wise. I want the more comfy interior of say an '80 but HE (the wrench, who HATES computers on cars) wants an earlier one, say about a '74 +/-. Is it fair to say that the interiors and creature comforts found on later Wags are retrofittable without an act of Congress?
2) He wants to find one with a 6 cylinder but it seems like they're all v8-powered. True or not? If true, were there both inline 6 and v6 (depending on the YOM)?
3) We looked at a '79 this morning and I like the dashboard design. We also looked at about a '70 online and its dash was much more bare-bones. What model year did the dashboard change to the 1979's design?
Thanks in advance for your help and keep the shiny side up, everybody.
