Project Bitch

I hope that title is ok. My fiance named it before we got it home.
well i picked up this 1973 AMC Jeep Wagoneer for $80 and it runs (ok) we had a few issues getting it home. hell even getting it on the trailor
issuse 1. engine fire. issuse 2. 3 flat tires and i brought 2 spares. and 3. A CRAPPY TRAILOR.

ok about a week before i picked it up some teenagers attacked it with an axe(yes an AXE) and screwed the front fenders so here is a pondering moment
1. cut, bend, and mend the old stock fenders. or
2. get some PnP replacments.




on day 4 I started pullings little things off like the grill and fire ridden carb.


and bumper


so last night i got a wild hair and went out and pulled the under dash A/C unit out(it still works) and all the A/C stuff (keeping the york comp might make a nice onboard air) them i pull the heater box and blower and wow with all that crap out of the way there is alot of room in the engine compartment. and i thought i might run the intake ducking through the hole from the heater in the firewall. and also pulled all the smog crap off.

I will post more as i work.

That may have a D30 front axle, IIRC. If so, a later waggy D44 front can be swapped with minimal fuss.

they tried to pull a stump out and the chain gave and smacked the tailgate even left link inpressions, i am thinkin of going with a gladiator style grill.

I has a Dana 27 closed knuckle front axle but i have a dodge dana 44 that i am trying to do a disc brake swap on for it.
