That link won't help the original poster. It shows the later style with an inside cable release. The earlier models have a release lever that's between the hood itself and the "hood bar" that is...

Maybe Inline Tube. Check their web site.

BJ's gathers as many FSJ-specific products as they can find and retail. You might check with them.

Both the T-85 and T-89 3-speeds were used by Jeep in these models, and in passenger cars both could come with the B-W overdrive. Possible the 2WD Wagoneer could have one from the factory, which would...

This also applies to the 1/4" - 5/16" - 3/8" standard fuel hose you can buy today. The generic stuff they sell at Autozone and Pep Boys is c**p. Lasts a year, tops. Suggest you buy name-branded fuel...

I presume the OP means the steering gear, not the steering pump. Jeep calls this a "steering gear assembly." Pretty sure "steering box" is a colloquial term. I expect you could use either the Eaton...

JMO - don't be silly - if he wants a manual, put in a shift kit and get a hot-rod-style floor shifter. Tell him it's selectable, like the paddle shifters on exotic sports cars. However, the automatic...

I recall the earlier trucks are spring-over front and the later ones spring under? I'm sure it's been made to work before. Also the earlier the truck, the deeper the axle gearing will be. This truck...

Well, it's sort of an electric choke. If it's like all the other Jeep 2150s I've seen, it's a thermoelectric choke. It uses both hot air from the manifold stove and electric heating to open.

I like it from the outside. I find the Wrangler seating too uncomfortable for me. Expensive too. My KL gets 26 mpg at a steady 70, so 27 combined is impressive. The Wrangler's boxiness works against...

A 6-lug Dana 44 centered rear axle is both scarce and sought after. A drum brake Dana 44 front axle can only be '74-76; front disk brakes became standard in 1977. These Jeeps all had rear drums.
