I am in the process of swaping everything from a 96xj into my 87xj. My question is what should I keep. What will bolt on or be used for spare parts. Alternator, power steering, axles,etc?

Thanks sorry if this sounds
Like a dumb question.

Done this same swap, feel fre to pm me if you get into trouble.

Are you making the 87 a HO?

I swapped everything from the 96 into the 87, harness and all.

Not too bad, just make a notebook/treasure map as you go.
You will also want to get some zipties with the plastic pushpins for tying the harness down

Alright thanks man. I'll definitely be getting some of those, Im kind of OCD about how my wiring is ran, so i'll probably be getting new covers for most the harness as well... lol
