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.
You are screwed on the steering wheel. I finally just used a slip on cover. The OEM is thick wax under the cover, about 3/8" thick all the way around and a very small metal rim under the wax, about 3/8" thick. The wax will fall apart if you uncover it

I found a cherokee with the same trim as my wagoneer. Plan to swap the seat/back only, keeping my electric seat hardware under the seat.

Have you or anyone with a Wagoneer installed an aftermarket headlight-relay harness to take he power load of the POS headlight switches that never last???? If so where did you find the harness? Part number? The cherokee harness is for 2 bulbs, with different pin styles than the 4 bulb wagoneers. The Cherokee is a 3 pin single bulb. The wagoneers are two pin, with different pin styles so the low beam and high beam can not be swapped by accident.

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.
What is the Craigslist link? I'd love to take a look!

Steering-wheels often are on, or come on, eBay. Keep checking!

Seat-covers can be repaired at a local Upholstery-shop. If you want OEM material... Try Kevin @ 586-727-2486 @ originalauto.com

You should also be able to get the steering wheel redone to original at an upholstery yup place. I remember on an episode of Wheeler Dealers they had one redone.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Hope nobody minds me asking this here. I need to find a new/another fuse box for my 85 waggoneer. Clutch was leaking and it looks like crap.

Part number J4179458
Looks like it is 1984-1993 which is good, but I'm having hard time finding one in good shape.
Some NOS were cleared out not too long ago. Don't see any around now.

Anyone have a lead on these?

No. Was not aware of them. Being in California they should have some decent parts. Thanks

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

I plan on using this thread on my 89 Waggy. It looks pretty comprehensive, so thanks for pix and explainations. My beast runs well, but steering is vague. I think trackbar and bushings may be bad, there's 2-3# play in wheel. Who knows until I start picking it apart.
I'll definitely need some front seat covers in tan, but seat controls seem to still work.
I'll keep in touch.
Tom
