New guy from KC

Hey all, I was looking for an older Wagoneer for awhile last year. I wanted 4wd and 4 doors so I can haul the family and tow the camper or car trailer. Couldn't find anything local so I ended up buying this 77 Wagoneer off Ebay and having it shipped from Minnesota. Delivered on my Birthday Dec 12! I knew that it needed work but it was cheap and I've built plenty of cars, bikes and hotrods.

I'll need to start a build thread because I've already done some extensive work to it. Here it is as delivered.

I guess I can't actually add the image to the site without buying into photobucket?

Welcome to the forum. There is a great group of guys on here with lots of knowledge to share. Everyone love pics too. Nice wag. Looks like you have your work cut out for you. Are those all yours in the driveway too?

Hey, welcome. Hopefully you make a build thread to track your progress and show the rest of us.
You can copy the BBCode and paste it directly into your post -- I deleted the URL crud to just post the pic:

Welcome inkedmonky , nice collection of cars you have!

Like to see some pictures of the 52 gmc if possible
My father almost daily drives a 52 gmc with Cummins under the hood.
We build it 10 years ago and it's still a awesome truck to drive these days!

Thanks Heep, If I could figure out the pic posting I would be glad to. I've tried pasting the link many different ways and can't get them attached.

This mechanic stuff is just a hobby for me. I work in mental health so this stuff distracts me. She's a 360, th400 and quadratrac. I was never really a jeep guy but I'm finding the early stuff they did is awesome and ahead of the times.
