Fenders, windshield, distributor

Hi. A friend of mine just got a "96 Wrangler, and he needs to replace the front fenders and windshield. Any suggestions where to look? We're in western Oregon.
Also, I have an '89 Wrangler, 4.2, and was looking for the link to swapping the distributor with a Ford 300 6 distributor. Has anyone done a comparison on the swap, and is it worth it?
Thanx.

Might be able to offer some assistance for your friends search but he does not have a 96 Wrangler. Check with him again.

Does pick-a-part in tangent have any yj's. I know a few years ago the one in albany did but it's been a few years. You might put on some tube fenders but I know Oregon has tire coverage laws that they enforce. As least they did in my home town. I got a ticket for no mud flaps 5 days after I went SOA.
I'd call around to all the wrecking yards. You can get new steel ones on ebay, the bid is at $75 each right now or 4wd.com for $140 each

Where east of Salem do you live? I lived in Lebanon for the first 26yrs of my life.

Hi Coyote. I'm in Macleay (hence the handle) about 6-7 miles east of Salem. My buddy lives between Lebanon and Sweet Home, used to live in Shedd.
Crafty, What I heard was a 96 Wrangler. Apparently it was wrong, but that's what I had to work with. I will pass along the info and ideas. Thanx.
Anyone do the dist swap?

Dee Da Dee!!!
Okey Dokey silly yo...I'm an idiot.
Thats cool.
My wife grew up between Lebanon and Sweet Home, about a half mile down from the old school house(now a church) on Fairview Rd.
Where do you go wheelin? I've been all over the McDowell Creek Park area and spent a lot of time up at Middle Ridge.

Just an FYI, Jeep never made Wranglers in 96.

I just talked to my buddy, and he also found out jeep didn't make wranglers in 96. He's got a 97.
Coyote-I don't go wheelin' much, just don't have the time. Got a good deal on my Jeep, needed a rig, always wanted a Jeep, blah blah blah. Doesn't mean I won't go, just haven't had the time yet.
