It is called a road block when you don't have any, LOL!

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

I have one just like it, but mine shows nearly 300,000 miles of age. If you find any NOS parts in surplus real cheap I would like to know.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

is that the correct rear tail lamp? looks much different than the ones on the jeep. i have the all red tail lights on my 89 wagoneer and they look just like the ones in the pic of the stock jeep. flat and squared off corner. your new one looks curved and tapered a little at the bottom like the newer XJs.

That's a Comanche tail light, not a wagoneer tail light. The wagoneer tail lights are still squared off on the outside corner like the XJ, they are just all red (instead of red/amber like the normal XJ) and have the chrome/silver trim (like the one in your pic).

Still a rare item (compared to XJ tails at least)... and more rare with the silver trim like that. A lot of the MJ guys are looking for tail light lenses like that, so post it in the classifieds here or on Comanche Club forums and I'm sure you can get a couple bucks for it.

Re: NOS: Tail-lamp #1

Agree. The parts list/manual describes this one as "chrome". I found a guy who has the other side. If I never find the originalstyle for an XJ... This may be a substitute in the interim.

The comanche tail light doesn't fit on the XJ body, none of the screw holes line up. Just sell it and find an XJ tail light, even if it's a red/amber one for temporary. Comanche tail light housings are hard to come by in good shape, so don't modify it or break it trying to make it work when you can get some dough for it and find the right one.
