Laredo Package

I am looking into purchasing another CJ-7, but the owner doesn't know much and I won't be able to physically inspect it before committing to a purchase price. Does anybody know about the Laredo package--meaning, what were the axle ratios on an '86 CJ-7 and did they come with posi standard as part of the package, etc...Did they have A/C?

I might be speaking out of turn here...but I think the Laredo package was more of a amenities package, than a equipment package.

I just my 85 Laredo Monday. I know the Laredo typically has the factory clock and tach, in addition to the other typical guages.

The 86 usually has the D44 (not all had this diff), and most likely the 3.31s. If you could get the owner to identify the diff and I.D. number on the passenger, front side of the pumpkin, you'll be in business. The model 20 is so easy to identify (the only perfectly round diff housing ever made), that if it don't look like that..then it's prolly the D44. There are other ways to determine gear ratio, depending on how the owner is wanting to help you out. Methods are drive shaft vs. tire rotation, calc using the gear ratio formula, and crawling under that SOB and note the ID number.

My 85 has the model 20, with 2.73's but has all guages. I think the "limited" package was the only CJ to come with factory cold air. Dunno if these were made in 86, but I know I built up a CJ that started as an 83 Limited.

Good luck!

According to the 1986 sales brochure, the Laredo package for the CJ consisted of:Black and gray OR honey and dark honey high back front seats with matching fold and tumble rear, center console, matching colored carpet, courtesy lights, glove box lock, hood insulation, instument panel overlay, intermittent wipers, leather wrapped steering wheel and grab bar, pin striping on the dash and front grill, carpeted door panels for full doors, tach and clock, black rocker panel moldings, chrome grill overlay, chrome bumperettes, chrome tire latch, chrome mirrors, tinted glass in hardtop, 15 x 7 chrome rims, 235 75 R 15 tires, chrome front bumper, interior lights, under hood light, day/night rearview mirror, power steering and brakes, and fog lights.
You could get a manual or auto transmission.
My 86 happen to come with all of the above and a T5 (5 speed manual), 258 6 cyl, and the model 20 rear with 3.31 gears.
I just picked up a late 86 Dana 44 and will be putting that in sometime.

Forgot to mention AC. This was an option on all models. I lucked out and mine still works great! It's great for fogged up inside windows. All of the CJ's share common platforms such as the frames, sheetmetal, engines, and such. The "packages" are not only decals, but nice options and "groups" that just make living with a CJ easier. Mine has been my daily driver for 11 years and I have had a great time with it. The 5 speed, hard top, and AC make a word of difference.

I asked the same question some time ago and found out that the Renegade could come with all the same options mentioned above. Some guys claimed to have the clock and tach, leather wrapped wheel, chorme grab bar etc. So, from what I could gather, whether you got the Loredo or the Renegade, you could order any of the options listed individually or as a group. The only main difference was the graphics.

As mentioned, the 86 could come with either the AMC20 diff or the D44. The later ones came with the D44 because AMC ran out of the AMC20's. Gear ratios varried greatly depending how it was ordered. I've heard anywhere form 2.73's to 4.10's on them.

Jeep Big Daddy..too funny! Anway.. you're right about the D44, but I think the 258 will ony have the 2.73s or 3.31's. The 3.54s and 4.10s would only be available with the 4 cyl.

Dano,

You're absolutely right. I wouldn't want to leave out my 4 banger friends. Allthough, as with most any vehicle, a person can walk onto a car lot and order it any way they want if they are willing to wait. So, if you want 4.10 gears in a six banger, you could get it. I know a guy that ordered a Chrysler Belvedier with no engine and then had the dealer install a crate 426 Hemi. I'm not saying all guys are smart.
