ExTankerGuy's '87 Waggy

Thought I would throw this in here...

All stock...My Dad bought it new back in 87. When I got it, it had 315,000 miles on it!



3" lift with 31s...



After I added the lift, I got 4.56 gears, and ARB lockers front and rear.

Same lift with some trimming on 33s.



Then I went with 4.5" lift with 35s. AJs Bumpers, rails, and TNT customs bellypan.



Made my front doors removable and got another set of wheels. (got rid of my spacers)



Got an awesome deal on a front 44 so I upgraded tires and wheels after the front axle swap




I think this is current...

Re: ExTankerGuy's '87 Waggy

Good eye rocker, its still a great pic.

I have one of mine laying around somewhere when I took possession, with fiberglass running boards and a windshield visor.
