Building Eugene

My build starts with a 94 Xj named Eugene.
I have known this rig since it was new and used to park across the street from my dads place.
I gal named Anna Banana ( I am not kidding ) bought it new
latter she gave it to her friend Kat who I mow for...when Anna passed recently, she left Kat her 2012 ford! I asked what she was gonna do with her jeep? She said do you want it? I said yea you bet!!!!

so until now I have GMs and toyotas,
but I love this little wagon!
so this jeep looks like it never had a wax job but I know that it was brought in for service regularly to the stealership

Also I don't think that it was ever cleaned interior wise

I got a turd to polish and boy did I

I added a cheap stereo from the Wal place
then I made a shifter knob
"I introduce the Twinkie shifter"

Now 3 coats of wax and an interior shampoo and it looks good
the engine runs great,,, so mods next......?

Nice pics.
If your stock leafs are in good shape it's not bad. I was never a fan of add a leafs, but that is just me.
For $50. More, you can get front coils which will be better in the long run and give you way more front flex.
Zone offroad. 3" lift

Ha ha. I know you guys don't see the ads that I do, it's based on your viewing/search history. Well, anyhow, there was an add for Budget rent a truck above this post. Just thought it was funny. Carry on!
Holy crap! what size are those springs??
I did the same thing right after I bought mine. :thumbsup: although I didn't remove the temp sensor while it was hot :rolleyes:

I marked on the new cluster the old mileage, in case I ever wanted to know later on down the road. Mine only had 85K and the replacement had 135K You would think 50K difference is easy to remember. :D

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.
