87 Jeep Cherokee computer
« on: September 24, 2019, 05:05:04 PM »
I found a 87 Jeep Cherokee at the junkyard today that had had a manual transmission in it and I was wondering if the computer out of it would be a good one to have for putting the 4.0 in to my eagle or would it be better to find a later model one.

Depends what year engine you are swapping in and whether you want to use the Renix 87-90, OBDI 91-95 or OBDII electronics. I've heard 91-95 is the easiest swap, but I've never done it.

thanks eaglefreak the jeep that has the computer and harness in it also has the engine in it and it only has a little over 120,000 miles on it and so far the renix ones are the only ones I can find so it may be my only option for getting my car back on the road.
