Hello everyone.

My name is Geoff and I check the forum a few times a week. Trying to finish my 70 Wag build, and will soon have an SJ again. Why does the last little bit always take so long?...

I think Chrysler first started talking about the new Wagoneer almost a decade ago. And I have to believe that the design was probably mostly done by then. IIRC that was pre-FCA. And now Jeep is owned...

Tell me about it. I posted something on the other FSJ site tonight and when I hit submit, I thought "Oh no! I forgot to check for apostrophes!" But then I remembered that I was not on ifsja. :D

Update with some pics.

If anyone wonders, these pics were taken under a fluorescent light, so it makes the color of the paint look a lot more yellow than it actually is. I did not respray since...

As some have already said, EFI will not net you much increase in MPG. I was expecting a slight increase when I fuel injected my 72 Wag. And there really was not really any notable difference. Tire...

Rang, thanks for the prompting. Time to dust off this build thread with a long-overdue update. Sometimes life happens and when it does it is not always good for Jeep projects.

I'm having a brand new 5.3 LS built using a fresh block (thanks Summit) to go into my Wagoneer. So now I have my choice of throttle bodies.

Do you happen to have the NT Dana44 from the 78? I looked through this thread and didn't see anyone ask about it, but it's probably long gone by now. Shipping would be to California, 93291.

Mud89, that thing is gorgeous. Great find. A new distributor is an easy fix. And if those rear quarters are "rusted" I don't even want to think how you'd describe the ones that are on mine... :D
