Super nice looking, 87 Wagoneer, D-44 rear Ltd Ed, 4x4 with all the bells and whistles for distressed sale up north, NY area I think?

https://www.facebook.com/groups/7732...eply&ref=notif

Last registered in 1992, used as a snow blow till last year. Jeep guy that bought wants to give up over the title issue. Ready to sell it or parts.

Its a Wagoneer group on Facebook.

Pass the word, that rig needs to be saved, It is almost exactly like mine, except the wood trim out side.

Salvage title is not that hard in Texas IIRC, or use a mechanics lean or??? Or collectors title?

Oh wait, that means more XJ's for me? :-)

LOL

I have a solution to your all's problem. Shop on Craigs list and Facebook.

Plenty out there looking to be adopted by a new family.

We still have 6 XJ's and one Liberty in the family.

One will never be driveable again (rolled on the freeway), but its still hear at home, ready to donate parts to the others.

Re: What was done to YOUR rig(XJ/MJ) today MECHANICALY????

Dropped in a replacement 97+ fan to replace my original efan from my 95 that had a busted frame. Replaced my pin style wiper arms with some 97+ wiper arms plus new wipers, then did a very slight adjustment on my driver's door striker pin to get the rear of the door to seal properly.

Re: What was done to YOUR rig(XJ/MJ) today MECHANICALY????

Finally got my 120amp alternator installed. Clearanced the brackets and the timing cover for the larger alternator to fit.

As I was putting it back together for the last time, the upper bolt on the aluminum bracket, went loose...oof I think the threads gave out on the block.

I just left it there. Need to keep an eye on it to make sure the bolt doesn't back out.

For now, there are plenty of bolts holding the alternator in.

Busted some.tires off the 2 SE wheels I've managed to acquire after installing some drop anchors in my garage for my cheap ass tire changer.

Now to prep the wheels and paint them then scrounge up 2 more.
