In my quest for the next cherokee I get to look at some cool rigs
I looked at this one yesterday
the add states
"1986 jeep wagoner
This waggy would make a great parts rig. 4.0 inline 6 with auto trans. It's almost complete. The only thing missing is the rear window.
Does not drive as I think it's lost spark. Turns over but won't fire. Do not have title.
I'll take the first reasonable offer. Also open to trades."

I called and 300 in trade in or cash was the currant bid

when I got there I saw that it is co-owned by a title loan company
the PO didnt give a title so thus the parts rig thing

I am not sure if I want this albatross ( that would make a good name for it )

If I had more room .....maybe

but the way things are right now I don't think I can
I will keep looking for something tileable

kinda bummed thoe this would be a cool rig
btw I saw another just a few minutes later same model and color but with a lift going down the road

If it's part owned by a title loan company, some one owes money on it. May be worth looking into.

Looks like one a neighbor of mine drives! (Hers has the turbine wheels though so itís inherently cooler)
Is the body as good as the pics makes it look? Would be a dang shame to strip that one apart if itís that clean.

well I found that getting the title will be next to impossible

I argee that this rig is too good to stirp but if I was to paint my jeep I would want that header panel and grill on my 2 door

speaking of the 2 door I finely got my temp gauge going

does anyone have the 4 cylinder and can tell me what temp it runs normally ?

mine runs about 210 deg F

I got the right sender unit for my temp gauge

went to install ...oops this one has a spark plug top and mine has a plug
so take a deep breath cut the wire and crimp on a connector find two nuts that fit the top and viola temp gauge works

now I have a fully functioning gauge cluster

glad it didn't workout the other way because I would had to found the plug in good shape
