BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

I put it in my 97 f250 that I had before the XJ. It made so much of a difference that the first thing I did with the new XJ was gut the interior and cover everything. I have never had a problem with a smell.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

All,
I'm getting my waggy safety checked this weekend, but I apparently need the front end corner "turn signal buckets". The guy helping me while gone gave me this, but I'll get more info tomorrow. Maybe he's saying the full headlight/turnlight bucket? Don't know which side yet.
Anyone have a few laying around(lol??).

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.
Hey Phil,

I've been following this thread and the similar one over on Cherokee Forum, but I registered to hopefully help ya out here. I used a Wheelskins cover in maroon for my steering wheel in my 1987 Wagoneer. They are very high quality. I would suggest asking for an additional thread/twine if you decide to order it (I needed to); the company sent it to me for free. I will also be buying the below linked dye to re-dye my inner leather wheel supports since they are also a bit faded.

Hope this helps you!

S/F,

-Matt

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

so I hope I get these pix on right. Here are details of my lens dilemma for 89 Wagoneer. Standard XJ for year is short and wider than what I need. (standard XJ on left- what I need on right). And pic of where this goes on grill.
Any help is appreciated. I'm actually thinking of trying to cut new to fit old lens portion I need.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Here is a link to the FAQ on how to post pictures: http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthrea...=post+pictures

In order to have a URL you have to first upload the pictures to someplace on the web. Photobucket is one option. There are plenty of other ways as well. Once you have them hosted somewhere you can then find the address for their location and that is the link you need in order to post them here.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

thanks Anak. My problem seems to be not seeing the Manage Attachments icon, but I'll try photobucket.

(and I miss Calvin)

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

That FAQ write-up is a bit dated.

Once you have your pictures hosted some where you need to copy the address of the location. I usually right-click on an image and then select "copy image location", but that is my system and yours may differ.

At any rate, once you have the address and you are creating a post here on you will find directly above the text box (where you type in the body of your post) a series of icons, beginning with a "B" for bold, followed by an I for italics. The fourth from the last icon in that row is an image of a couple of mountain peaks with sun in the upper right corner. That is the icon for inserting an image. Click on that and then insert your picture's address in the dialog box which will appear. You should then be good to go.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

These are unique to the XJ Limited... So it may not be interesting to all.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Well now, I may just have to try this out one day. Need to replace the window guides and seals first before I get this detail conscious. Found a real nice looking, still after 28 years, 1989 Wagoneer Ltd Ed. near me today for sale. Do I need a pair of these?
