That is a beautiful Wagoneer. There is one in decent shape at the junkyard near me. I got the headrest from it. Such an improvement over my 1990 Cherokee Laredo.

I've decided to go with Tan.

Might the one by you be available to pick parts from?

Depends on what parts you want. I can take some pics next time I go there. Might be going tomorrow for some stuff. Just keep in mind it's in Upstate NY so rust is a big killer up here.

Photos in page 2 of this thread...

In order of importance:

1) Driver's side door upper-trim - No dings so that just a polishing would do!
2) One trim end-cap
3) Additional end-caps as spare - But not necessary
4) One or two front door bottom-trim - Optional

I have a source for the windshield-trim... Although I haven't received it as yet... So I don't know it's condition. Fingers crossed!

Thanks!!!

Should be easy enough. They should pop off with a putty knife, right?

Should. There will be a set of clips... One in the trim and the other in the set-hole. Start a bit in from the end and move across and repeat to loosen. If you break the clips... Not a problem. Thanks!

No luck at the junkyard. The trim pieces I found where faded and moldy. Even looked at the crush pile but same problem. Good luck with your search and let me know if you need other things.

If/when you take your front doors off, It would be awesome if you could post pics and measurements of the locations of the upper and lower hinges. My door took a hit by a kayak and they now sag... I just can't tell their original position to re-weld them. Thanks!

I found it behind the driver's door upholstered panel. I now can confirm the inside trim color is Tan. At first... The exterior color-code did not cross-reference on a few of the paint-sites. Finally I heard back from one of them... The exterior color is Charcoal Gray Metallic.

Damn mines long gone then. I've had every door panel out of my jeep and never found a build sheet. But that's cool and keep up the good work on the waggy. I'll be watching
