Bill's Daily Driver Build

This seems to have garnered a lot of attention on the other forum, so I thought I would post it here for any who may not belong to the other.

Welcome to my build! Well, welcome, at least, to the start of it.

I'll be starting with my 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. It currently has its stock 360 and 727 transmission, backed by the NP229 transfer case.

Exhibit A:



It's pretty much rust-free, with a few hail induced dings and a rather tweaked hood (it came open at some 35mph :shock: )

My plans (comments welcome!)

Drivetrain
-LY5 5.3 (from a 2008 Silverado)
-4L60E (2008 Silverado)
-NP229

Interior
-Thunderbird Turbo Coupe front seats
-Custom console
-Custom dash
-A/C from a 70's Chevy truck

Body
-Wide Trac flares
-Maroon paint
-Custom woodgrain
-Suburban 42 gallon tank
-Raised rear floor (2"-3") to accommodate tank.

Wheels/Tires/Suspension
-31" or 32" tires?
-15" wheels? 17"? 18"?
-Stock height? 2" lift?

So there you have it. Comments are welcome! Thoughts, problems I might have missed, and ideas are all welcome.
In the meantime, I'll post up parts, thoughts, and questions as I order and receive parts.
