Full Size Question

Hello, I found a 1976 Cherokee for sale near by. Its got the 360 CI Engine, 400 Auto Tranny, don't know what t-case and axels, 33x12.5 ATs What would the gas mileage be estimated to be? It also comes w/ some 33x14 Boggers, needs floorboard work, $1800.

Re: Full Size Question

should be the Quadratrac full time 4WD, Danas all around. Look under the driver's seat right next to the transmission hump to see if it has the HI/N/LOW lever, also, look in the glove box for the Emergency Drive Selecter for the QT.
My '77 Wagoneer got 8-10mpg, so does my '85. Some guys claim that they get 13-16mpg with better intakes/carbs/etc.
What type of lift is on it? If it's a quality lift like Rusty's, Skyjacker etc. with full spring replacment and the interior and exterior are in superb shape and its got some major engine work done to it recently, I would pay that much for it. IMHO, If it's rusting, interior's rough, and he's got blocks in the rear instead of full spring replacement and the motor's stock with 100K+ I would offer $1k just because it has the tires and you will only have to replace part of the lift (hopefully). Just my .02

Take nothing but pictures . . . Leave nothing but big tracks in the mud and paint on the rocks and trees . . . Kill nothing but time and shackles and an occasional rod or two . . .

My 86 Wag gets 9-12mpg. It's getting Holley fuel injection this week so we'll see what happens w/ milage.

Re: Full Size Question

I get 11 MPG as she sits.... not bad for 39.5's with 4.89 gears.... She got 10 MPG before I lifted her and with the OEM 3.54's.

Sound ok.... just how much rust are we talking about on the floors.... Flinstone style or what?

78 Wagoneer

14" total lift
4.89's/Lockers/39.5" Swampers
