FSJK is right, this was a kit that was supposedly being sold for a while. I think they called it "Woodland Kit" or something like that.

Thanks!

I think the flash makes it looks better than it is, but I'm still very happy with how well it has lasted.

I have similar symptoms on one of our other vehicles, which I think is related to a vacuum leak around the throttle shaft.

Couldn't agree more - I wouldn't say it's an age thing as I'm 26 here!
It drives me mad how every car has to be blacked out these days, it makes them all look like base models to me.

I don't think CJs or Wranglers got power windows until the JK in 2007, so probably not much help there.

RockAuto has them for the later years of Grand Wagoneer, could those be made to fit?

Your 1985 for example has a different style of tail lights to those from '83 and earlier.
