For sure... When stating "Wagoneer"... Folks, even Chrysler folks, think Grand Wagoneer. Now the Chrysler old-timers know of which we speak... Some of the younger folks know them as the "Little" version of the Grand Wagoneer.

I feel compelled to say... Although there are a lot of folks with, and interested in, Grand Wagoneers (Me too as I own one)... The Wagoneer XJ Limited is far more rare.

I ended up upgrading to the newer style cluster because of it. I tried to find a replacement printed circuit but there were none left in the jeep inventory any where. Every used cluster I've ever found around here had a failing printed circuit too.
No problem with mine that I know of.

I agree. My base or custom (forget what they called it in 85) wagoner is somewhat unique but the limited is a very rare bird IMO. Part of why I snatched all the parts I could from a limited with the same red interior back when I came across it. But my old 85 is never going to be restored to a factory condition, it's had too hard a life long before I saw it and I've been building it up since the late 90's upgrading the axels and other components as needed.

Wow, maybe it's the heat down south that kills them. Although I bought mine out west originally and it wasn't long before I had to replace the original cluster because it was failing. (Weird thing was when I put a full cluster in the engine already had the right senders, not the ones for the idiots lights the original cluster had. My only guess is somebody swapped the motor sometime)

Early 2000's a old timer at the jeep parts counter tried to help me find the circuit board the close as we came was the first year of the new style. I bought it anyway for under $9 because jeep was clearing them out and it was almost nonexistent. It's sitting in my parts hoard waiting to be needed.
But my luck with the 84-87/88 clusters was very bad.

Rear Air Deflector Blade

A good friend who is always on the look-out for me... Found this hard-to-find rear air-deflector (blade). The material is a brushed-aluminum. It is currently at the paint-shop where is will be coated/painted/sanded to a smooth finish to match the OEM paint/finish; Including the mounting-brackets and screw-covers.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Do you have a source for front side light fixtures, the tall yellow ones the XJ wagoneers? If so please post up here:

Also are the headlights getting hard find? AZ wants $17 for them and only had one of the two in stock.

Headlamps

NAPA for the headlamps. If I remember... I could not find them on their website... I visited my local NAPA store to cross-reference.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

FYI since these is some love for the old Wagoneers here I thought I'd post this: there is a someone in my area with a 1986 XJ Wagoneer for sale on craigs list, yes that means the 2.8 V6.
Thing is he wants almost $8 grand for it. He says check the NADA to justify his pricing.
I got sticker shock just glancing at it.

BTW I don't think the 2.8 is a necessary bad motor, a bit gutless and just not a good as the 4.0, but I never could kill mine it was the "bad" version of the motor with at least 200k I put on it.

I have a 1989 Wagoneer Limited. The driver's seat is in pretty rough shape. It was driven for a while apparently with a broken mount, and it has 219k miles anyway.

I know you scored a set of covers, but any guidance on fixing or replacing a badly worn seat?

How about a very worn leather wrapped steering wheel?

It's got the awesome oxblood/cordovan interior.
