Hi. Kinda really intimidated. Have an AMC 87 cherokee laredo. Looking for the best reference site for replacement of exterior of jeep. What years are compatible with my 87? Mechanic refers to her as "old rusty". I reply "old Trusty".
Check out this build thread for a meticulous restoration of an 87! Crist_Clapper May be able to give you some good tips on finding quality replacement parts.
Me: Restoring a Wagoneer XJ
But other than the Wagoneer trim level on the early years, body style was essentially unchanged from 84 to 96 so a lot of parts are compatible. There were of course many minor changes to and variants of engines, transmissions, axles, etc, some are direct swaps and some can be considered upgrades, very common to slap parts from later model Cherokees onto older ones.
