    Carpet Replacement

    Man that thing is clean inside. I don't think mine will ever be that solid until I eventually do a 97+ swap in a few years...

    Pics. Still need to get it stretched out and in place better.

    Carpet Replacement

    Got the carpet unboxed and had a few comments--it is a good reproduction, but not perfect. The backside is covered in oil from the manufacturing process and there is way too much carpet around the edges that will need to be heavily trimmed. Additionally, the portion in the front the trans tunnel where it meets the firewall will need significant trimming. I'm also apprehensive on when I should cut the opening for the tcase shifter. I have a column shift transmission, so nothing else to cut. I'll also need to cut for the seat bolts and seatbelts. I also bought an extra "yard" of carpet to re-cover the rear cab panel and the color is not a great match (despite ordering the same color code).

    Just had my Stock Interiors carpet delivered today. Will be installing it later this week and will let you know.

    A-Pillar Interior Trim Passenger Side - Shipped to SoCal

    Thanks definitely more than I can justify spending on this. Will try to see if I can track one down in a junkyard down here in SoCal.

    Center Console Options

    Just bought a 97+ XJ console and will be swapping into my '88 4WD w/ Column shift. I bought the JCR reinforcement bracket and will trim the console to fit as needed. Should have some pics up in the next week or so. I'm planning an eventual 97+ dash & interior swap, so this makes the most sense for me.

    Bucket seat bases (xj rocker type)

    How much for 1 good seat base foam? I have these seats in my MJ from a 92 XJ. Just need one foam seat base to fix the drivers side collapsed foam.
  13. Swapped XJ buckets into my MJ and no longer need this bench seat. It's out of a '88 Pioneer with blue interior. Needs a cleaning and minor repair on the back. Includes the blue seat belts and XJ brackets if you wanted to adapt it to fit an XJ. Will currently bolt right into an MJ. No rust on the frame. Located in SoCal. $100
  14. Thanks--that's helpful. I'll get a vacuum gauge and test it.
  15. Sorry, forgot to mention. It has a new IAC (same behavior as the old one) and cleaned throttle body/new TB gasket. I've replaced almost every vacuum line that even looked close to failing and done a handful of vacuum leakage process-of-elimination tests by disconnecting and capping off certain ports. Unfortunately, still the same. I'm really leaning towards dirty/bad injectors or clogged cat. Both appear original on this 30-year old 211k truck. It was at a Southern CA farm most of it's life in very hot, dry, dusty conditions. Luckily no rust, but most of the plastic is melted/brittle. Also, it accelerates somewhat well, but still feels like something is restricting at higher RPM's. I'm comparing this to my seat-of-the-pants feelings from older XJ's that I had 10+ years ago, so this level of performance might be the norm. It also has a new distributor and plugs. I haven't indexed the distributor by cutting off the ears yet, but don't believe that would cause such a big issue at idle. I'm also somewhat concerned with timing chain slop, but it didn't seem too far off when rotating the crankshaft and watching the distributor rotor move simultaneously.
