This one-owner Jeep sat parked for 13 years, now running strong

The “Dirt Every Day” show, part of Motor Trend’s YouTube channel, is rescuing yet another abandoned 4WD from the clutches of time and neglect. This time, it’s a one-owner, all-original 1972 Jeep Wagoneer complete with documentation, rat’s nets, and Michelin tires from 1978. Thankfully, this pristine SUV isn’t too far gone.

Fred Williams, DED’s host, along with his friend, go to work getting new fuel, new spark plugs, new plug wires, and new fluids in the engine. The old AMC 360 V-8 proves simple enough for two guys to resurrect in a two-day timeframe, before mounting a set a BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires to replace the decades-old Michelins.

I won’t spoil all the fun, but the video is a fantastic example of how to get an old vehicle running after years of neglect. Washington State covered in fresh powder. It’s totally worth the watch, so click it in HD, crank the volume, and enjoy.
