Removing the carpet is kind-of like painting... It's all in the prep-work! After removing the seats, console, trim, etc., ... The carpet comes-up rather easily... Maybe an hour?

About the cargo-strips... Maybe you already know this... But they simply have spikes that press/pinch into the carpet to hold them in place. I will not be re-installing mine the same way... Will post more information on this later.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

I sold one of those rear air deflectors as a package deal with a fancy JC Whitney style brush guard and rocker rails for next to nothing and was glad to be rid of it all. It was probably all dealer add on. I ran it for about a year and never noticed it to serve any particular purpose, hope that guy finds someone who really wants it someday.

Super clean build.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Its the three strips in the middle of the roof that run front to rear. They protect the roof paint from luggage. They were chrome with a black rubber insert top side. The screws went directly into the roof with steel screws. They rusted, and rain got under them and ate a hidden hole in the roof. 2, 1/2" holes by the time I figured it out. Prior owner had caulked the early holes and bottom of the runners, and put the runners back on. I was shocked the screws were steel and directly screwed into the roof.

Looks like they call them skid strips?

Carpet Installation - Looks are deceiving... Took more time

Eighteen hours later... I'm close to being done. Best lesson learned was… Fit the wheel-wells first. It became obvious that since the carpet started flat… Then molded… The widest “fitted” width are the wheel-wells. Once I figured this out… The nip/tuck began! By far I spent the most time fitting around the spare-tire hardware… As it seems the carpet was molded without this in mind.

Dang! That Jeep brings back memories!

My uncle had one. I remember riding in the back with my brothers and getting back-handed by my dad for passing wind............

Not for the purest...

If you're a purest... Skip this update! lol

The cargo-strips are ready to re-install... But how to-do?

When I had the chrome polished... I had three holes punched in each piece.

My plan, although not tested, is to lay a piece of Masonite under the carpet and attached the cargo-strips to it.

Stay-tuned!

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Did you have any problem with the buckles themselves coming apart?

I didn't. But I can see how it could easily happen.
