First it seems Im in a small group of Wagoneer XJ Limited owners. Although there are many similarities to the Cherokee, the differences are frustrating for a restoration/preservation build. So All help is welcome!

Welcome to our small group, parts are very hard to find, I just picked up another set of tailights, mirrors, and a front clip for almost nothing, good luck with your build
