I know people would probably like a description of the different packages and their equipment, but that might be a bit large...
I actually had a whole section on Factory Options but I deleted it because the post was too big (there is a 10,000 character limit). I had to trim it down with a few other stuff also. As of now theres a little bit of room left but not enough for that!
Just for the fun of it here is the "Factory Options" part I took out:
There are so many options, it is impossible to list them all for 18 years worth of models (the early ones didn't even come with carpet on the base model!) But here are the more common ones:
Towing Package - included class III hitch, wiring harness, aux. transmission fluid cooler, and synthetic lube in rear differential. Some may have included lower (3.73) gears and some 87-89's came with the Dana 44 rear axle.
UpCountry - included 1" taller springs, front skidplate, transfer case skidplate, gas tank skidplate, 2 front tow hooks, 1 rear tow hook, and deleted the rear swaybar (aka: stabilizer bar).
Other pakages and options include:
Police Package, Off-Highway Vehicle Package, Selec-trac, skidplates, Trac-Loc in rear differential, full size spare, 2wd, RHD (right-hand drive), power windows, power door locks, cruise control, air conditioning, ABS brakes, leather interior, heated seats, overhead console, tinted windows, CD player, 16" alloy wheels, fog lights, keyless entry, anti-theft security systems.
