This is your opportunity to own a piece of American history--and use it! This Jeep was built to be a reliable daily driver and expedition overland vehicle. The 5.3 LS engine and 6 speed transmission were carefully chosen for their well known reliability, plentiful power, and respectable fuel economy (this Jeep can easily achieve 18mpg on the highway). The swap was done using as many OEM GM parts as possible so in the off chance that you need to make a repair, sourcing replacements in any auto parts store will be easy. The AC blows ice cold and uses a combination of GM and original Wagoneer parts. After being disappointed by off the shelf suspension options we set out to design something better and succeeded. The custom tuned Fox coilover shocks are perfectly at home on the street, desert, or mountain roads and will keep you comfortable and in control.

*This Jeep is currently registered in California and comes with a clean California Title. However, the engine swap has not yet been approved. If you are located within California, getting the swap emissions approved will be up to you and may not be possible. I am able to provide further information to serious buyers. Willing to deliver within western U.S… maybe further?

The bad:
The body is pretty straight but there is some surface rust in the rear lower quarter panels, tailgate, and near the fuel filler. There is no significant rust on the frame.

That's the same year that I had a long time ago, what a blast that thing was! I only paid $600 for mine when I was stationed up north and it did great in the snowy winter and was very very comfortable! I guarantee that thing is a much better driver now that it has the LS in it, the old 360 was a dog and thirsty to boot!

I'm going to be down in Paso Robles in 3 weeks, if it hasn't sold by then I'd be interested in taking a look.
Miles on the ODO 206k, about 5000 on it since the swap. Mileage on motor and trans is unknown, they came from a shop that duramax swaps suburbans.
