  8. The angle of the drag link has to match the angle of the track bar (the straight line from end joint to end joint, ignoring the bends in the bars). If you change one of them without changing the other, you introduce bump steer. There are several older threads with photos to illustrate that. Irrespective of length (which is what an adjustable track bar changes), if the frame end hasn't been dropped you do NOT want to use a dropped pitman arm. Bump steer is an unpleasant phenomenon at best, and can be dangerous. If you are concerned about stress on the steering box, get a steering box brace. Actually, IMHO the single best thing you can do for the steering box (and tie rod ends) is train yourself to NEVER turn the steering wheel unless the front tires are rolling, even if it's only a 1 MPH.

  13. It was my impression is that even though I have an adjustable track bar, a drop arm would reduce the angle of the draglink and reduce stress on the gearbox. This is purely conjecture on my part, without having actually measured these angles. My MJ is just going to be a daily driver/lite trail rig, so I don't need to do any crazy upgrades. I figure if I can find bolt-on items that are factory and a bit more beefy they would be more subtle than expensive aftermarket parts.
  14. Good luck finding that info. The MJ is a ton more rigid than competing light trucks from the era, but there's still some. I initially had my Leer topper about an inch from my cab, and never made contact, but I wasn't wheeling it. Eventually I moved it back a touch so I could get my hand back there from the outside to unlatch the pass-through window to the topper, so I could open that and juggle the MJ's slider window open in the event I locked myself out.

    Wheel cleaning

    Wire wheel will scratch them. Since You're dealing with oxidization you need to give them a solid deep clean and polish. Or just say f it and paint them or leave them. If you want to clean them up it will take some time. I recommened this stuff. Pricey but works amazing. https://www.ammonyc.com/shop/ammo-plum-whee-cleaner/
  16. Anyone around here able to grab a good clean pic of that for me? I can't find any doing searches online. I can still buy Command-Trac stickers, but not Selec-Trac. So if I can get a good pic, I'm just going to make my own. Thanks!
  17. Anyone ever measure the deflection of the rear frame and bed relative to the cab under flex?

    Sigh of relief

    I have the brown dog rubber mounts in mine and love them. There is a little bit more vibration than the old wore out ones. I found that you don't want to over tighten the bolt that connects the mounts to the engine brackets.

    4th Generation MJ project

    I fixed the battery cable and mounted the headlight wire harness. I sold the 86 MJ to the pull in save yard for what I paid for it, $200 after removing some parts. I removed the drip rails, vent covers, e brake handle and cable, canopy, taillights and tailgate. The tail gate is bent and rusted through but I might find a project for it. I sold the drips rails and have the other stuff posted. My house flooded so I wasn't able to remove the other MJ specific parts I wanted to before it was re sold. In all it was a success buying the 86. I have some parts to sell and when they do I will be buying the Raybuck seat cover kit to redo my bench seat, its $220. Then ill buy the parts to give my 88 a 3" lift. More to come after the work is done on the house.

    Diesel Cherokee Wagoneer Holy Grail?

    Nice find. But that Renault 2.1 turbo diesel engine is really a piece of junk! Very poor reliability record. No parts support in North America at all. No service support network in North America. Even the National Renault Club (yes, there really is one) will be no help. Post the VIN number: That is the key to getting the Jeep registered in California. My 1986 Comanche is a true factory diesel and the VIN number was key to get it registered here in California. I have a VW TDI engine in that truck now. The Renault diesel had a couple of cracked cylinder liners and a cracked cylinder head! Several years ago there was an 85/86 Diesel Cherokee listed on Craigslist all over the Pacific Northwest with an asking price of about 6K. It was listed for months off and on. As far as I know, it never sold. Perhaps this is the same Cherokee?? Automan on here has a running 86 diesel Comanche. He is a heavy duty mechanic by trade, so can keep it running. Think the truck was offered for sale at $2500 before he bought it. Don't know the final price. Frankly, I don't think you have found a valuable gold nugget. Just a nice old Jeep. And NO! I am not in the market. Been there, done that.
