Yeah both rear quarters behind the rear wheel will be fixed. That passenger side is the worst of the two. That's on the summer to do list. I just got a new company car so I can take the Wagoneer off of daily driver status to finish a few things. Some FatMat and install the new headliner as well as the body work.

Amazing thread! Glad to see your '89 GW and my '80 Cherokee started out in very much the same way with similar parts including the gas tank, but yours has taken on quite a much more impressive build turn, great job!

How do you like the ride of the 4" BJ's springs and Rancho Shocks?
I'm watching your thread closely and love the final ride height and tire size.

It was a little rough at first. But from what I've read they all are. But after about 4 months of driving her daily they got pretty nice. I mean it's still a lifted ride but you don't feel the pounding like at first. They did settle some from install. Again that's to be expected but they certainly haven't sagged any. It's been about 9 months now. The one nice thing about the shocks is you can adjust them. The rear springs are really rough at first. They're better now but still way rougher than the front. I have my rear shocks at a 4 and my fronts at a 7. But when I first installed them I had the rears at like a 2 and the fronts at a 5. When the springs softened I stiffened up the shocks. Now I'm really happy with the ride

Back to Work on the GW

I've been busy in the last year. Changed companies and sold a house and bought a new house and moved. Now that I'm settled it's time to get back to work on the Wagoneer. I'm also in the process of converting all of my photobucket images in this thread over to Imgur. It is a PITA but there's a lot of good info found in the pics. I know when I was doing the majority of my build everyone else's pics were a big help. Here she is now. I haven't had a single issue with her. Running like a champ!

I plan on doing the same thing. My PB subscription ends in March. I think the default was auto renew and I didn't change it. I almost want to wait and see if they try to gig me for $400.

How about resizing those pics. They are HUGE.

Great to see this thread going on. PB is a major pain, so good to see an alternative. Although resizing is a must :-) Loooking forward to your pics, keep `em comin...

Your wagoneer looks fantastic. That is the perfect ride height.

A Bump and a huge thank you! Been busy with life lately but getting back to the Jeep. I was pleasantly surprised to see all of my PhotoBucket Pictures back up. I spent a lot of time and money on my GW and I tried to pay all I could back to the site for all the info I learned with my thread. I was so pissed when I lost it all. Glad it's back and I hope it helps and inspires others. I've done more work recently and am getting ready for more. BJ's will be happy💰💰💰 Stay tuned because this tread is coming back!

nice wagoner

my 88 wagoner also has the muscle grille

looks so much better to me

than the factory one they used on those last years.

congrats,.....better than any new vehicle you can buy,...

and a whole lot more interesting, not a cookie cutter vehicle.

and definitely more pride of ownership.

the wag goes up in value while the 60 grand 4x4's drop like an anchor !!!
