Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Honestly... In the evenings while watching TV... I search the Internet. What I might do differently is dig way down in the Google search results. Often one lead... Leads to another...

I have only seen one maybe two others on the road the last 8 years. They are getting very, very rare!

I was wondering why you were hunting for NOS tail lights when I think they are still available new, at the aftermarket Jeep parts places. I figured it was a restoration method issue.

I bought mine used, 224,000 miles with a tone of mechanical issues back in 2006. I have replaced just about everything except the engine block and head, transfer case and axle assys, and the body now.

>>> It's true there are many after-market tail-lamps... But none with the chrome-trim like the originals.

I bought mine used, 224,000 miles with a tone of mechanical issues back in 2006. I have replaced just about everything except the engine block and head, transfer case and axle assys, and the body now.
>>> Nice! It seems they are always a work-in-progress!!!

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Very nice Wagoneer! Glad to see you are restoring it. I would like to restore an '87-'90 XJ after college. I'll be following this build closely, keep up the good work!

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Absolutely gorgeous! I recently did a resto on my '92, keeping it mostly stock, but upgrading with options, and items like later headliner and console. Still appears stock, but a head-turner! Great job!

All you need now is to get hold of some 'rocking chair' seat bases...

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Is that the original OEM color or something else?
