My understanding is the plaque was factory installed on the last couple of months of production. I have seen reproduction plaques for sale at collinsbrosjeep.com I've seen the plaque over the gauges and over the driver side speaker. I have also heard that some dealers had the plaques in 86. Plaque or not an 86 with a factory Dana 44 is special. The big question is what was the total production run for CJ7's in 1986?

I just purchased a set of axles out of a 1986 CJ7 for my 1977 CJ7. They are the factory D44 in the rear and D30 in front. He replaced them with an aftermarket beefed up set from Currie i think. He told me that the D44 was factory only in some late model 86 CJ7s. I had never heard of that before and I was skeptical. I am glad I found this thread to know for sure. I wish mine was an 86! You guys are lucky to have them. Kinda like those fortunate enough to have a 69 Camaro.

I love my '86, but the PO replaced the tub with a fiberglass unit. Kind of takes the uniqueness away from it. That, and if it had a plaque, it's long gone now with the old body.

this is a cool thread. i didn;t know they made this plaque on the 86 models. i wish they had put something on the 87 wrnaglers. mine is a march of 87 wrangler laredo with all the original number matching parts except the engine block. even my doors have the matching vin on them.

i need to keep an eye out for one of ya'lls cool guy last of the great breed cjs and then i could have one of both, last of / first of

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

If the CJ one says "Last of a great breed" what would the YJ one say? I vote for "First of a breed that shouldn't be!"

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.
:-D

First of a half breed? It's still a Jeep, just not a very pretty one. ;-)

Bump.

After reading through this post, either there are a bunch of people pulling legs, AMC randomly picked the VIN #, or math just does not work any more. I have an 86 CJ7 (second owner) and this is something that I have always wondered about.

Here is my confusion and I really can't believe no one else has brought this up.....

Supposedly there was somewhere around 25,929 86CJ7s built. The earliest number that I have seen posted here is 06175 (which might be a mistake) or 34034. The latest number that I have seen posted is 144616 or 142474. There are over 100,000 jeeps between these numbers. What is going on?

This thread is for those of us who have a "Last of a Great Breed" CJ7 to post pictures, and share information about the few produced.

I dont know much of them, but I have read on some other posts that approx. the last 1500 CJ's came with the plaque

Please post pictures any Information you may have.

Please, Only 86 jeeps that came with the plaque originally. No ebay bought plaques.

Here is a pic of my plaque that has fallen off.
....... my last digits are 63217.......... No plaque

"The quarter-ton Jeep earned a worldwide reputation for ruggedness and versatility in wartime. That tradition has continued for more than four decades that the CJ has been sold to the public. Completion of the CJ production will signal an end of a very important era in Jeep history." -Joseph Cappy AMC vice president of operations
