lol Pioneer...

I always compared the Eagle as a compromise between the Grand Wagoneer and Cherokee Pioneer models. The Eagle is really just a compact wagon with a massive arsenal of compatible drivetrain parts. If someone made new sheet metal for these cars the Jeeps wouldn't be so popular anymore. Based on the sales figures, this has it all and that's exactly what people wanted. Is this arrogance? Is it greed? I think it's just common sense.

The Eagle was missing a low range and a strong enough auto trans. The 5 speed was sort of weak too.
FOR SALE
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.
