Problem solved, thanks for the advice gentlemen! I made my decision and am now the "keeper" of the most perfect 1986 CJ-7 I have ever seen outside of a museum! It has the 258CID, T-176, Dana 300 and a lovely GOLD Emblem from the assembly line on the dash proclaiming it as being "One of the Last" signifying that it was built in the last 90 days of CJ production before the Wrangler came online.
If you are interested in seeing the photos, they are still online at
Mine is Photo #43 and Stock # 3249. And yes those ARE the wrong wheels. Does anyone have a set of the original "White Spoke" with Center Caps they would be interested in parting with?
Thanks for the help! Bruce
