Other -- My 81 Wagoneer Limited was purchased out of the Little Nickel Want Ads in 1995 for $1,000... Ad said: Mechanics Special, 81 Wagoneer, leather, sunroof... It took about 45 minutes to revive him, and then he was spurting every kind of fluid imaginable in every direction... He actually drove the entire 15 miles to my house where he died and wasn’t revived again for another 4 months... He’s a thirsty rascal, that’s why he needs a Diesel or a Fuel Injected motor. He’s better in the snow than my XJ. Couldn’t help but name him Old Blue... The visibility from a FSJ is incredible...I usually hang out on the Full-Size Jeep list. A handful of us got the thing going back in 1995 and have had it on two different servers. But y’all are welcome to join us. Instructions on my web page. We try to avoid talking about XJ’s and even harder to talk about CJ’s, mainly cause we’re jealous of all the cool parts available for them... :)
