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".
What's up from NJ, welcome to the forum! sounds like you've got plenty of experience under your belt to shareNewbie to the site and thanks for the add. Got our first Jeep in 87 (an 85 FSJ), although we had a "baby" Jeep (aka 81 Eagle Wagon) in 84 that was totaled while sitting in a grocery store parking lot (delivery truck driver swore his brakes went out). Just bought #9 tonight, an 01 WJ. Currently have a 98 ZJ TSi, 00 XJ Sport, 02 Liberty Limited and the "new" 01 WJ Laredo. Youngest Daughter has 2 96 XJ's (Sport and Country). She calls them her mountain car and city car. You might say we're a Jeep family.
My serious answer to your joking question is that a rope ladder should be used. I play with combines and tractors for a living and ripping off ladders/steps is fairly common. I've personally damaged a couple.If I do a 148" lift (figure that should clear most small buildings) do I need to regear if I just keep the stock tires? I want to terrorize the neighborhood, but don't want to spend too much time/money on this. And should I use a fixed ladder, or maybe just a homemade rope ladder? Thanks!
