From Plastic to Plush :-)

Covering the plastic-parts is time-consuming. A lot of trial and error. I still have fine-tuning to do. In the meantime... Here are some pictures of the progress:

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Crist, I believe we have a mutual acquaintance in Jeremy Hodges over at Jeremy's Radio Emporium. He was working on my vintage Jeep in dash radio/CD player for my 96 XJ Country, the much later and less luxuriously appointed high end XJ after yours. Unfortunately he was unable to get it completely operational again. He got it working on the AM side however the FM and CD portions are not there. He let me know you had given him the owners manual for my radio and he's in the process of digitally cleaning a copy.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Wow.. What an undertaking! And awesome sauce attention to detail!

She is coming along beautifully!!

I know its a restoration project- and returning it to its original glory- but id ponder a little budget booster to get some 30s or 35s on it. That clean of a build would look nice with a little stance on it ��

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

If (as I suspect) this is going to be street-only, no mods should be required for 30x9.50 save a couple washers under the steering stops.

That said, having run a 2-inch lift and 30x9.50s for some years I always felt that was how the XJs should have been configured from the factory.

Jeremy has done me good! Yeah... I sent him a copy of my manual. And I look forward to seeing the cleaned-up version!

What model radio do you have?

My point exactly! Should habe come from the factory that way! Spacers and shackles... Maybe upcountry package shocks and call it a day!

In my post i wrote 30s or 35s- I clearly meant 30 or 31x10.5s LOL

I have Model 82300393. At one time I had a pull out version, 82300392, several years ago but I can't remember what I did with it. I must have sold it. It would not fit in the dash of my Cherokee. When I bought it, the seller did not indicate that is was the pull out version. I also had another 82300393 that had issues and sent it to a repair shop and they notified me they could not fix it and never sent it back.

Unfortunately the scan you sent to Jeremy was not the greatest so he's having difficulty cleaning it up. The images are too blurry to clean up. Perhaps if you had the chance to rescan at a higher resolution it might help with his effort.

Appreciate the scan regardless. I had no idea what some of the buttons on the radio did. Your Waggy is quite impressive.
