1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer 5.9 from North America
With a little money and time, the most versatile vehicle on the road
Despite rebuilding the motor and transmission twice, once for the drag strip and now for cruising, I love this thing to death. It was mine and my dad's last project together. He and I were huge into drag racing and wanting to build something unique. I had already had one of these; it was an 88 and I loved it. So we bought this one and built it to run. We got the last two years of my high school running the crap out of it at the drag strip before we lobbed the cam in it and decided to put it back factory. I still have it to this day and drive it on road trips constantly.
My only problems are the gas gauge of course, and the starter sticks from time to time, and I'm having an issue with the coil getting too hot and losing fire. I'm in the middle of fixing that problem.
This thing has only let me down twice in the span of ownership. That is going to school in it and I burned up the transmission racing someone, and the most recent was in a Mexican restaurant parking lot due to it losing fire because the coil got too hot.
I will always own one. If not this one, then another one. It has been the best at the drag strip as well as normal cruising and off-road when I go surfing, fishing or hunting.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
