I bought that thing in Seattle about three yrs ago. Got it for a dime 'cause the kid that had it was told by a shop that the HG's were shot. It ran warm, but nothing too bad. And, everything worked. I sold it to my BIL for the same money a week or so after I got it. He put 40K miles on it With the blown HG's.
I'm disappointed he gave up on it as easily as he did. Especially with the relatively low miles. Yeah, it looks good, Jeff. If anybody could breath new life into a abandoned wagon, that'd certainly be you.

Lifted? tire size, looked likes Maxx?? tires, tire size. Did you have to do a head gasket? Total bomb can count for paint or was it shot with a paint gun.
Lookin Walker Ready for sure, What do most you use for tow points front and
rear? Is the OME front hooks OK, and what about out back?

2" front 2 1/4 rear (JAW Lift) cut at 17*
Carbed EA81 5 speed D/R
27x8.50x14 Maxxis Bighorns
10 Cans of Gloss black $.96 Walmart paint
1 can of Silver
I had an EA81 laying around so I just threw it in there
total cost into the car so far
$24.96 it pays to be a horder
then there was little set back, where I seemed to have forgot to tighten the lug nuts, luckly it happened on the trail and not on the road, another lesson for myself.................:-\ My wife was a little bit worried that we would not be able to get it off the trail but I had an extra hub and yohn had a stock spare.

BTW. That Rack started life as a Bumper Buddy, hanging on the back of a '98 TJ I used to run around in.
