Thanks, they only made them till 82 and wouldn't you know in my town is an identical one. Picked this up for $500 off craigslist. It had been sitting since 1997 when the headgasket blew and was buried to the tires in dirt. I put a 4.0 in it from a 95 Cherokee. I did keep it carbed though. Fires up and can drive it around, just needs exhaust, front cv shafts, brakes and a handful of small stuff, wire cleanup and heater hoses, stuff like that.

looks nice you need some front bumper ends to complete the outside, all front bumper ends are the same on all models excluding the 1980 models
