No, most definitely a short bed. If it was a long bed the gas cap would be closer to the rear fender. SWB is in the middle.

Like so

No prob, I got 2. I have some knowledge on them but tiny compared to some MJ gurus over on CC.

What is holding you back from swapping the wheel or column to get rid of the airbag? If it is just the concern of a mechanical airbag, you can always just back the upper bolt out on top of the wheel.

Re: Seen any for sale?

From everything I have been able to find out, just swapping the wheel is not a graceful option. At best you lost your self-cancelling turn signals. This is a DD, so I really do prefer not to be the old guy driving around with his turn signal on all day.

The next best option is probably to swap then entire column to one from a '94 or earlier. I have no idea what all wiring connections are likely to be different, but I fully expect something to be different about the cruise control wiring.

My biggest problem with that steering wheel is not the airbag, but rather the location of the horn buttons. On the rare occasion when I really need them I can never seem to find them. A horn button should be in the center of the steering wheel.

Re: Seen any for sale?

I couldn't agree more with my 2000. A person cut across lanes last week, I locked up the brakes and went the horn and "nothing", they still tagged me! I couldn't find any damage so........

That one for 25k sold on BaT for 20k.

Sucks for buyer good for sellers. While it seems silly for what these are going for there aren't many left so supply and demand, especially for decent examples.

Another from CC that recently sold for 12k. Other than the raptor liner paintjob it's nice.

That's another nice one! I'm looking for another project that I can build my way so stock would be best.

Seen any for sale?

Hey, i have an MJ that's going for sale in your neighborhood! Technically a short bed, but really it's a bobbed longbed.

Didn't even think to see if there were other local folk since i moved to Mesa over Christmas.
