Thanks guys. I found a couple steering columns on ebay. Not sure if the engine runs or not because I cant get the ignition to stay on long enough to get it to start. Maybe I will get lucky. I was told it needed a carb but who knows. we shall see. Wish me luck. I found a complete Cherokee 4x4 locally for $1600, rusty but runs good(so the ad states).
My big problem is time though. I dont have time to swap drivetrains.

|mrbigjeep||fuel injection would be way better than a carb|

If I remember rightly those years YJ used a GM steering column didn't they?
And yeah, swapping out from the 4.2 to a FI 4.0 would be a nice little addition for you.

|daddyjeep||There are some other parts that could be useful from the Cherokee. One piece front axle shafts, maybe find one with a Dana 44 rear axle if your lucky, and the transfer case could be used for a back up.|

I cut and pasted it so many times I must have taken out the question portion. I am looking for decent venders, new and used. I am not buying a new steering column, but the rest maybe.
So yes, I needed suggestions from the collective wisdom of the people that know.
I looked into the fuel injection and figured I could buy a complete Cherokee 4x4 with a 4.0 efi allready in it and transplant it. What do you all think. In the mean time I may throw a Weber on it.
Thanks in advance

|daddyjeep||Quadratech has probably the most comprehensive inventory of Jeep parts out there. 4Wheel Drive Hardware is also a good source.|

|mrbigjeep||my bad...wasn't sure if you needed parts... i wasn't sure if you wanted us to suggest brands or what but ya you could try the wanted section as stated...or ebay...or if ya buy it all new then try quadratec|

im kinda confused too but im guessin' he just wants us to suggest some brands or somethin' (???)
if thats the case then you can't go wrong with best top
a fuel injection would be great (howell is the brand i think) but if you go with a carb then weber is a good brand
and flaming river makes a good steering column
mastercraft and best top make good seats
i'm not sure if this is what your lookin for or not

|amerijeep||Hmm, you need some parts, don't ya. I think maybe you could try the wanted to buy section and see how that goes.|

|bluvikng||I am confused. What exactly are you wanting? I tell my wife all the time, I need, I need, does not convey much. I am at a loss to what you need, and what you want the rest of us to do about it?????????|

I bought an 88 Wrangler, need some things
Hi all, I am John. I posted in the newbie section some weeks ago trying to decide a route to go and I made a decision to go with a cheap alternative and finally got it home. It is a 1988 Wrangler Lerado, 6 cyl, auto, 4x4 with a/c. I am going to need a couple things for it. First thing I need is a steering column.. Someone tried steeling it and broke the column and broke the guts that slides up and down. that is the most important right now, because I cannot start it like it is, or at least not easily.
I also need the following
a black top with frame or a hardtop with hardware(it had a hardtop but it was destroyed)
a carburator, or conversion of some sort.
clean seats front and rear
Otherwise it is a relatively rust free Jeep that looks a lot better than expected. I bought it sight unseen.
Thanks in advance
John in Deland FL
