As my username suggests, I've owned an 89 GW for 2 years. Sometimes I drive it. But mostly, I work on it as a hobby. Me and my young family like to take it camping, Xmas tree shopping, and excursions in the snow. My son likes to vault over the seats (while parked). My wife likes to take pictures of it. My daughter is too young to care.

Most of work I put into it is directed towards driveability... Most notable below.

-GM based TBI and ignition (afi)
-97 S10 rear mount gas tank swap with 96 fp. I'll post something about that.
-valvetrain replacement
-bluetop steering box

Lots of other repairs/mods but those are the highlights. Next undertaking is an AW4 swap... If I follow through I'll document it here. PROMISE

Welcome! This is a great group of folks on here. Sounds like your entire family gets some great use out of your GW, that's awesome! Look forward to seeing your swap and learning more myself!
