i put up a post on the full size jeep board to see if anyone there could help me id some wagoneer running gear. people have read it but not one single response. looking at the rest of the board it dosent seem that anyone responds to anything. so do any of you guys know what kind of running gear a '80 4dr wagoneer with a v8 and auto trans would have?? maybe the jeep guys dont like me 'cuz i drive a chevy...thanks
Just wagging here (Wild A$$ Guessing) but I think that the front axle on the Wagoneers are D44s. I don't have any idea what the rear would be but the tranny might possibly be a GM tranny, during that time AMC Jeep was pretty much a parts bin junkie, whatever they could get their hands on they used... my 86 Cherokee has the GM "Iron Duke" 2.5l 4banger...
<font face="Comic Sans MS">I believe both axles are Dana 44's (front/rear)... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] However watch out for the quadratrac models (I think) with the differential offset just like the front is... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Not sure how else to describe it. I don't recall what case that was now, is either the Q trac or a different case... Anyhow the offset rear diff will be easy to spot... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>
yeah..i think the front is a d44..but the rear diff has a cover that is almost perfectly round. the reason im asking is ive found a wagoneer in tact at a local junk yard and im looking to build a cheep rock beater with a welder, and junkyard running gear. stick it on a trailer and beat the hell out of it!!
Search under "Jeep Wagoneer" or i might have it as like "Jeep Wagoneer Limited" like 2 months back i got alot of tranny and axle info for my friend on there. the trader got a Monte Carlo now...and barely drives the JEEP
