1985 Jeep Wagoneer
Justin sent down this neat but tired Grand waggy. It had some serious electrical problems and some previous owner temporary wiring solutions for seats, windows, non working gauges and more. We set about fixing all the wiring issues and in a Grand Wagoneer that’s’ no easy task. We rebuilt the factory gauge cluster and with new sending units got that all squared away. We added fuel injection, repaired some motor issues and that got it running in tip top shape. The poor ole’ jeep had a bunch of “stick on” chrome all over the lower panels. We removed all that and it took off some of the paint with it. So we repainted everything below the wood grain, we also did some other touch ups and re-cleared the hood. The tires were worn out and the owner likes the old Mickey Thompson wheels, so we polished the wheels, added some grand wagoneer center caps to the wheels and added a new set of BFG all Terrains. Once all the exterior items were finished, We turned to the interior. The burgundy/maroon interior had faded into about 6 different shades of Maroon. We installed new carpet, a new headliner, replaced the carpet at the bottom of the stock door panels, repainted a bunch of items to match and then re-upholstered the seats with a neat plaid insert. A custom center console was also upholstered to match and installed in the jeep. Justin wanted a killer stereo, so a flip up head unit was installed, with polk audio speakers and in the rear a rockford Fosgate 12″ sub and amp were custom installed into the passenger rear cargo panel. For the final touch, we custom made a roof rack for him. The cross bars were 3/4″ so that any Yakima rack product could bolt to it, bikes, cargo box, boat holders, you name it. What came in as a tired wagoneer, left with new life, Not a full restoration, but a refresh. Now she looks the part, not perfect, but a presentable usable driver with a killer interior, fuel injection and a roof rack that will let him and his wife use the wagoneer in the way it was meant to be used.
