  1. In the crazy pursuit of finding true black plastic molded 91+ lighted sunvisor mirrors for this project — I made a discovery today. A laughable break-through. Actually two...There were 2 style sunvisors in 1990 XJ/MJ (this I did know prior) - both short. The ‘first gen’ was a cardboard variant similar to the ‘84-‘89 XJ/MJ. Then ‘second gen’ sunvisor was the hard plastic design that saw its way through end of XJ production in 2001. The first hard plastic offering has a molded black plastic lighted mirror (never knew this) without the adjustable dimmer later years had. The lid of this unit had a light gray surround and fabric insert (as these visors did through 1996). Now here’s the second thing I learned in the quest to find molded black plastic mirror assemblies... Ford in their Lincoln Town Car only (not Crown Vic or Marquis) used the same lighted mirror assembly as the XJ/MJ. Specifically, in the ‘90-‘92 model year, then Lincoln went to a slightly narrower, 1” wider mirror until ‘98-‘01 when they again used that same old mirror assembly design as the XJ. All molded in black as an interior option choice for the Town Car. So…I just need to swap the assembly lid or simply use the entire Lincoln black mirror assembly and scrub off the airbag warning label. And the reason for all this chaos is the black interior swap I’m doing on the MJ with a modified overhead console install... and I wanted to keep lighted visors driver and passenger side. I’m nut yes, as I know anything can be painted, but one scratch and back to disassembly/ re-paint. And I just don’t want to deal with that. Feeling victorious although I don't think I've ever looked at myself in a visor vanity. Typically would be in the rear view mirror...Oh well. Below two pics of the 1990 'second gen' sun visor mirror assembly. 1998 Lincoln Town Car scrap mirror to test for lid disassembly...and further down ebay find in black. Lid is easily removed too... Mirror was cracked out of the car I pulled it from.
  2. Looking for mint chrome driver and passenger side (top and bottom) chrome trim that surrounds the interior hockey stick door arm rest. Looking for chrome that is chrome, not green chrome as I know that happens to these. PM me pics of what you have. Photo below is of the chrome trim I'm looking for. Thanks. Would like to get 2 sets.
  3. Been a while since an update...Puttying dings has been my main focus, in addition to cleaning interior parts I pulled from the road trip. Spent way too many hours cleaning up one of black dashboard finds -- inside and out, front and back. Very few cracks on any of the plastic, support pieces or otherwise. Even inside the glove box, top right corner...the little square-ish box with rivets, no cracks. Can't say I've owned or seen another XJ/ MJ without a crack in this area (unless new). The heap I pulled this from had a under 70K which I'm sure helped. All vents on this dashboard will be replaced. Couple more dashboards and lots more interior parts to clean, sort and select from.
  4. You have a 5-speed truck - if you had an automatic there would be the silver transmission box (TCU) on the lower dash panel you pulled. The only other silver box Renix years which you have would be to the upper right of the steering column. This is the engine controller. The yellow box drivers side on the lower dash panel is the cruise control.
  5. It’s a repaint for sure, as the flares are body color. No such thing as a long bed SporTruck but looks good anyway. Also added the body side molding.
  6. Many thanks RedMistress... That bedliner IS going to a good home and to a good... no great truck 'Son of Stink'. Good meeting you on my journey across the States last week. Even snuck in some time to drive that mint Colorado Red XJ Chief of yours. Hard to believe it is 33 years old -- as it's showroom clean! Shame you weren't open to me buying the black dashboard out of it... ;)
  7. This is a rare one -- and factory AMC only offered '86. I've only seen 2 of these ever. This is for the Comanche specifically... Not J-truck or Scrambler. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rear-Bumper-Step-Type-Fits-86-92-COMANCHE-198376/352946116571?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D98721efe2e4b4af28a3281a3a147b89a%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D352946116571%26itm%3D352946116571%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DJeep&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A490e5e6d-d1b7-11ea-bcca-c211acc1b306|parentrq%3A9b5f2b2f1730ad397e7ba51effe3280e|iid%3A1
  8. Been a bit quiet lately as I had been researching for MJ interior parts like crazy...I just got back from collecting those parts for the MJ’s black interior across the US. I flew out to the east coast, then drove back-- hell of a drive. I started in CT where I got a mint dash, center console and kick panels…Followed by Minnesota where I collected a mint complete interior (except the dash as it had a crack, and no center console – was a bench seat) from this little rust bucket (thumbs up to ProFast Auto Wreckers as they have a nice stash of XJ’s they didn’t realize they had 84-01)…Then off to Texas where I got a NOS bedliner. Then back home to CA at midnight last night. Was a 5 day trip and I’m beyond tired, but grabbed some good interior stuff.
  9. I figured wouldn't hurt to post as many of us have XJ's as well. I stumbled on this 84-96 4-dr XJ new door switch bezel. And it's almost factory looking. The most noticeable difference is the front passenger switch set up. (And the little window icons). Regulators additional, but this is a new aftermarket kit for the XJ. Surprised to see it...And would most likely plug and play with Renix and HO era XJ's alike. Didn't find a 2-dr kit. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/via-84sw7?rrec=true
  10. Those are dealer only. Auto parts store stuff is close but not exact. I think you'll find you need to trim the top of most anything you find of the same diameter to fit in the trim pieces retainer-slot.
