Whats uncomfortable about your wagoneer ?
old ass bench seat with no head rests.
heat through floor boards.
poor heat when its cold out
"air" leaks all over the place specifically the tailgate because they don't make a 73 and down tailgate seal.
the exhaust that i constantly inhale because of the aforementioned seal leaks.
the gas fumes that i constantly inhale because of the aforementioned seal leaks
loud as hell because of the aforementioned air leaks.
loud rattling windows.
loud rattling everything
super stiff ass leaf springs combined with stuff ass shocks so I could tow the pop up without rubbing on bumps.
the most uncomfortable offroad ride i have ever experienced, literally bouncing me into the roof if i exceed 5mph on some roads.
falling headliner that is touching my head and my passengers heads.
Radio that doesnt work anymore because of the HEI, so i cant listen to my tunes unless i use a tape adapter.
leaks in the rain.
Uh.....hmm im not sure what else but that's a start. At least it looks cool and people wave every so often.
that all being said, a number of these items could be improved upon once I get past the driving issues. I have not allowed myself to put any money (well hardly any money) into the interior or exterior issues like the seals in the 8 years I have owned it, because I have been tackling all the mechanicals and drivability issues. Every time I got to the point of being all "okay lets redo the seat and headliner" i end up diving into something like an axle swap or an EFI install.
I can redo the seals given time and money making it quieter and more pleasant smelling and warmer and drier.
I plan to go back to a nicer riding shock once I ditch the pop up camper.
The seat will be replaced and reupholstered.
New carpet will reduce the heat from underneath and keep interior heat in
New headliner with insulation will reduce heat from above and keep interior heat in.
So on and so forth.
