The end of the line for my '87 Wagoneer [j]

Kept the rear dana 44, roof rack, wheels and tires as well as bumpers to swap over to my '89 Cherokee.
Thanks to Nutbar for swapping over the lift ( now got a total of 6 inches of lift)
and axle gear ratio change to 4.56, Also a thanks to Cheeky for the rock sliders [cheers]
This things awesome off road now, although the first time out I ran the 4 to 1 trail up Norrish with out my gas tank skid on[27] ended up crushing and splitting the tank and also ripped off the rear factory bumper [27] still it was a good day wheeling [36]

Yep, rear flares on the front, front right flare is from TJ rear left and opposite for the other side, got bored and decided to trim them back abit.

Here's a link when I fitted the TJ flares to my "87 XJ Wagoneer

What was wrong with the old one? Anything or you just wanted a 2-door?

The Wagoneer was rusting out on the rear spring hangers, probably fixable with a bit of time and patience [16] , was a hard decision to wreck it after owning it for 5 years [j] .

Then a friend offered the Cherokee for a reasonable price plus, I like the look of the 2 door, also it was a standard [36].
