I have been informed by the powers that be, that a flatfender is not big enough for the family to take on a trip to Moab. Fortunately, I have a big Wagoneer that I have been playing with for awhile. It was dubbed the CANYONERO (OF COURSE). It is a 1980 LIMITED with gas suckin’ 360 AMC engine, TF 727 transmission, and 219 transfercase.   Axles currently are the factory Dana 44 & AMC 20. Complete with 3.31 gears. The plan? Well, since I like diesel engines it seems natural to install one.  A 6.2 GM Diesel. Thats the plan, with a turbo 400 & 208 tranfercase. Axles will be a 8-lug Dana 44 front with a Ford sterling rear both with 4.11 gears. 37 inch H1 tires and beadlock rims will serve nicely. Why this particular combination of junk? Well, I already own all this stuff so it will keep the cost reasonable. Stay tuned. The madness will be starting soon.

    Hey, the kid’s legs are getting longer by the day. Squeezing him between us, straddling the shifter ain’t so workable any more.
