  1. That’s an add on mopar kit fog relay.
  2. Been cleaning, prepping, painting, and sorting parts... Also took delivery of a well packaged Spectra fuel tank. Finally! These are made in Canada and are quality reproduction units -- but I will say their shipping box was paper thin with no protection/ padding around the tank whatsoever. I had taken delivery and shipped back 3 tanks prior because they had been bent and dented in transit. I contacted Spectra directly, explained I was restoring a couple Comanche's, and they sent me 5 well packaged tanks to choose from. I ended up keeping 2. Way to go Customer Service -- really appreciated it! Here's one of them cleaned up...
  3. Only difference on the MJ seats is on the backside top of seat below headrest is about 3” of carpet material then turns to vinyl. Xj seats look better.
  4. It's listed at $9K on the local (Los Angeles) craigslist.

    Various parts

    If you look on the back side of an XJ driver's side kick panel '86-'93 there is a curved line for the exact cut for the MJ foot brake pedal sweep.
  6. Nice -- someone can go after that Thunder Chief look. I just hate to drill holes in the top of my bed-rail.
  7. Originally on my 92 MJ locates in CA it’s whole life. Trim is not bent, black is faded and one paint chip where psgr windshield wiper hit it until adjusted. $50 plus shipping. Includes all pieces to surround windshield.
  8. Long ago I had wired back to the camper shell interior lighting that goes on with the trucks interior lights; additionally, I fit a first gen Dodge Dakota 3rd brake light just above the rear glass of the SnugTop's shell. Worked great. This round, just in case I go camper-shell-less, I've wired cargo light and 3rd brake light wiring to the back top of the shell. Since my factory rocker switch locations are all occupied with fog light, auxiliary fan override, and winch on/off & in/out controls -- I wired the cargo light with the interior lights also. I though about using a 70's GM foot actuated hi-beam switch, but decided against it. As for the actual cargo/3rd brake light I'm using...I've poured through all years/ manufacturers that existed. Settled on 2 that look MJ appropriate. First gen Dodge Ram full size (top photo) and second gen Ford Ranger (bottom photo). Since I'm waiting on them to arrive, I'll need to hold them up to the MJ to see which looks best. I'm leaning towards the Dodge as it is Chryco. I also dug up some NOS upholstery I got 15+ years ago...1987 YJ black "Jeep" logo's denim vinyl and XJ black vinyl. I had also purchased a few years back some aftermarket non-logo'd (because they can't logo it without Jeep's permission) black denim vinyl. The aftermarket denim vinyl is a blue black color (top right color) versus a brown black color as the NOS denim and denim vinyl is...so I'll be going with the logo'd upholstery. Now to decide on the stitch pattern of the winged bucket seats I'm going to use. I think I'm going to go with a stitch blend between the Laredo and the old Wagoneer XJ Limited. When I have some time I'll play with Photoshop.
  9. I can tell you between my 2 trucks — the 89 had Phillips screws and my 92 torx.
  10. Yep, actually crossed my mind too...but I think will keep as is. For now.
  11. Lots of cleaning today -- everything from fuel tank hoses, breather lines to an '87 XJ black horn hub. 25+ Q-tip to get it done. I'll be touching up the plastic torx of the hub also. Also painting a ton of nuts and bolts for re-assembly when the time comes...
  12. eBay...I have rolls and rolls of it. This is the guy I buy it from -- located in Santa Ana, CA https://www.ebay.com/itm/1936-1958-Pontiac-thick-masticated-rubber-sheet-1-8-C70064545/333580344687?fits=Year%3A1946|Make%3APontiac&hash=item4daaf01d6f:g:qjkAAOSwTglYmXFB
  13. Finishing up wires to the back of the MJ – 3rd brake light and interior light for camper shell. Also running optional 12V ignition-on cigarette lighter power for the bed. Did a masticated rubber cut-out for underside of the ‘X’ cross member for the tire contact. Cut, punched and push-pinned it into place. And finally, filled the taillight sockets with marine grade dielectric grease and snapped on the new backsides.
  14. Plugging along finishing lots of details to the MJ's underside...Drilled a 1 3/8" access hole on either side of the frame so I can put a nut on all the bolts for the sway bar end link mounting bracket. Took my time measuring and all came out well. Once the brackets are mounted/ nuts in place I'll use these 'caplugs' to fill the holes. Mounted all hardware since chassis paint -- front and rear shocks, attached brake lines, bled system, etc.
