Wagoneer Questions!

Whats up guys just bought my first jeep, 82 Wagoneer 3" lift springs in front and blocks in the rear, rancho shocks and 35" boggers. My questions are i kinda want it to flex pretty good, at least thats my goal for right now, but i can't seem to find a whole lot of info and goodies for the full size jeeps i don't know if i'm lookin in the wrong spots or if they are just limited? It has Dana 44's at both ends, are the axles okay to build or should i do a swap? It also has 351 modified and a C6 which i thought might be a pretty good combo? I was wanting to get the TERA FLEX REVOLVERS but can't seem to find none for the wagoneers and was curious if i could use another application? Sorry its so long but kinda wanting to make this thing a pretty good trail rig, any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Chad

Chad, all you need to know about Full Size Jeeps can be found here:


Go to the Off-Road FSJ Tech section and ask away, those guys will hook you up and set you straight onto the rightgeous path of the FSJ.

If your looking to wheel your rig fairly rigoriously, upgrade the axels. D60's or maybe a 14 bolt in the rear.

What transfer case are you running since the motor/trans has been swapped?

Oh and FSJrs have had bad luck adapting the Revolvers. Some have rolled their rigs having them unload on them. The thought seems to be that the full size rigs are just too heavy for them.

Good luck.

i am all about the waggy's.... it is not too hard to get them to flex very nicely, my guess is that if your flex is indeed limited, it is limited by the 3 inch lift springs you are talking about... or the shocks... if somebody got cheap and kept the stock shocks and such, that would kill it...

old worn out stock springs with a shackle reversal (which makes about 3 inches of lift up front, and plain old 3 inch blocks out back. just make sure the shocks aren't limiting you. if the springs are the issue, then get some stockers and go SOA when you do your axle upgrades.

imho, you should wheel the pi$$ out of it on the stock axles first, and when they break, then start talking upgrades. they will get you a good long ways to start with.

You will submit to your benevolent government and you will like it.
