It was 006175, which is pretty low.

My confusion is that there were only ~ 26,000 CJ7s built for this year but the vin numbers posted here blow this threshold out of the water. From the earliest vin to the last vin posted numbers over 100,000, but supposedly it should not exceed 26,000.

My vin is 076XXX, so with only 26,000 being built, vin numbers should not be below 050XXX if mine was the very last and they should not exceed 101XXX if mine was the first.

This might jelp explain the vin mystery...or not. Vin numbers are not usually consecutive though.

You are forgetting all the other Jeep models Jeep produced in 1986 like the Cherokee, Comanche, J10, J20, etc, which accounts for the ~145,000 vehicles Jeep produced that year. They are all part of the sequential VINs as well. Whats more, not all 26,000 CJs rolled off the line one after another. So the CJs VINs are going to be scattered. Best I can tell from the VIN data I have, the D44 made it on the CJ somewhere between 050265 and 054173. if someone has a 86 between those two VINs and knows their axle, we could narrow it down even more.

That's one of the later numbers I've seen. I'm the second owner and the PO said he had to "special" order the jeep because there weren't any available.

There was some talk of '85 CJ7s having them, my last five digits are 70289. The PO painted it white with indoor paint so I don't know if I have the plaque. My original color was white. As for my rear end, it's covered in grease and people have told me AMC 20 and some Dana 44. It's a four speed and a 258 I6. Once I replace my rear Diff. Seal ill know if its a 20 or 44

If it's a round cover it's a 20. there's no mistaking it for any other axle. A 44 is more square-ish and a partial protrusion. The 20 is almost a complete half of a sphere.

My first CJ was a 1986 CJ7 with the rear dana 44 axle. It had 111457.9 miles (still have the odometer) and the serial part of the VIN is 093929 (still have the VIN plates but no title). I never saw a Last of a Great Breed plaque so I don't know of it had one.

Unfortunately it was so rusted out I had to sacrifice it but many parts are going into my Scrambler, including grill, hood, and a few other accessories.

I believe at this point that the there were much more than the last few thousand that got the D44. I see 86 CJ's with D44's as much if not more than AMC 20's.

My 1986 cj7 has the dana 44, 5 speed, power steering, power brakes, tilt etc. It also has the "Last of a great breed" emblem located above the left speaker. The last 6 numbers of my vin are 143650. Any idea if thats one of the last one's?
