I have a Wagoneer that I brought from AZ in 2000. I was in the middle of a build that included a custom built Currie 9″ rear with disc brakes. A complete front Dana 44 rebuild. 4″ Rough country spring lift with front shackle reversal. The Wagon was almost rust free at the time. Gearing is 4:11 and both diffs have LS. Front is TracLoc and rear is Auburn. The transfer case has MileMarker part time conversion with overdrive. With the 38″ swampers the Wagon would run 70mph at about 1800 rpm. In 2005 I installed a Cadillac 500 cubic inch engine with Cadillac turbo 400. I had a shift kit put in at the time and swapped output shafts to run the Quadratrac.
Now with all that said the engine is out and has been for a few years. It just never ran right and I even put in a second engine that also did not work out. I would bet that I have not driven it more than 3000 miles since it has been in OH, but it is starting to get rusty and the interior is needing spruced up. It is sad to see it just sit and I am ready to see it go to a new home.
