What year wagoneer

All right guys, I need some help. I came over from the short wheel base board to get some advice. I plan to buy a tow rig within the next year and was wondering what waggies came with the better options. I know most of the newer ones came with all the power accessories, but what I'm interested in is the drive train. The waggie was discontinued in 91 right? The last ones had chrysler V8s in them correct? Were any fuel injected, and did they have the dana 44 in the back or the chrysler rear? I've always liked the grand wagoneers and now that my Wrangler is on its way to limited street duty I need something to tow it to the farther trails and to haul spare parts and tools.

The only plans for the truck other than some good all terrain tires is to remove the wood panneling(sorry all you woody lovers). Hopefully I wont get bitten by the bug to start building and wheeling this one.

If you plan on doing any serious towing, I would look for the 401 powered '74-'78 Cherokee, Wag, or truck. These rigs were available with all the options you could think of besides the frivilous junk like heated seats and power mirrors.

Re: What year wagoneer

I would agree that the late 70's waggies have a better drivetrain for towing... 3.54 gears in Dana 44 front and rear. If you don't mind having a QT unit, the 73-79's with the TH400 will have a QT behind it. I have one and love it! they have a bad rep because of owners not using proper fluid or throwing lockout hubs on them. the later Wags have as low as a 2.73 and 3.31 gear.... 3.54's weren't an option in the 80's as far as I know. Chrysler took over the line in late 78-early 79 I beleive. From the early 80 and on, they were more into economy rather than HP and torque.
