The VIN contains some information about drive train, ie engine and transmission and GVWR. Check the TSM (factory service manual) for decoding. There will be a trim code and a paint code on the VIN...

Regarding your all-in-one question, I've only done it with a 2WD truck, not a 4x4. I don't think there will be any problem pulling the J20 parts this way, since you don't care about the rest of the...

Please don't get defensive. This was a year or two before my time with Jeep, and I have no personal experience wrt that question. I've read about '71 350 Wagoneers here, and have also learned not to...

An afterthought -

You can look at the front axle and see that it's the 30 that a '71 should have. An earlier Jeep would have a 27. The covers look the same; I'd look at the tag, read the Jeep Corp...

NP. Glad I could help.

My understanding is the transition to flanged rear axle for the Wagoneer did not happen at a precise model year change. Same for the CJ - some '70s have the flanged axle, but...

I would mention - if you stay with the tapered axle, Jeep supplied the Dana PowerLok LSD as factory equipment with these axles. This is an excellent option, if you can locate one. Quite a few were...

A '71 should be a flanged 44. 5 on 5.5" with 30 splines. Desirable axle. Same as a '72-75 CJ except wider. You would have many different LSD and locker options.

If it's a tapered axle now, somebody...

One liter is almost exactly 61 cubic inches (61.024 is closer but not exact). So a 5.3L is more like a 323 if you assume the liters measurement is accurate.

Given some rounding, a 5.3L could be...

Since this change happened during Chrysler Corporation ownership of Jeep, I would expect there is some overlap with Chryco vehicles of the day. If you had an example to work from, you might find...

If you want to point out the swap, why not "5.3L" instead of "325?"

I believe the original badges were zinc alloy (pot metal) that was plated. Presumably you could 3D print the new badges and have...

Pretty darn sure there is no fusible link on a '71, regardless.

The TSM wiring diagram should show the difference in the wiring with or without the ammeter. There is no need to send the charge...

Looking at the picture of your load - Figure about a pound per foot for the 2x4s; maybe 1200 lbs with the PT lumber. Not terrible. Agree that's what it's for. Put it to work.

How did this turn out? I can't imagine any two locations within Rhode Island being more than 20 minutes apart.

In your previous thread, I mentioned MTS - my mistake - that's the J-truck that can use the earlier tank, not the Wagoneer.

Kinda think if TGW or BJ's does not offer it for the GW, there's no...

I think it's part of the ignition switch in the column. Look at the wiring diagram on the Tom Collins site, or in the '76 TSM there. Shows a connector in quadrant B-6.
