    86 D44 Drum Backing Plate

    Like I said, it's been over 10 years. A 5 minute Google search just revealed the difference: 1986 CJ D44: AMC Model 20: Sorry for any confusion.... it's been a while.

    turn signals don't work

    Grounds would be my vote. I had the exact same problem arise out of the blue last summer at SandBlast: intermittent turn signals and when working only having one side working. At SandBlast, spankrjs offered up grounds which turned out to be the problem (at home, I finally found the culprit...

    86 D44 Drum Backing Plate

    It's been a while (10+ years) since I installed a 1986 CJ-7 D44 on my 8, but my recollection is that I simply swapped my AMC20 backing plates onto my CJ D44 axle. I could be wrong though.

    Leaky combination valve

    All - I couldn't stop thinking about this port (pressure relief?) that is obviously designed into the rear brake line adapter. I ended up finding this YouTube where another guy talks about his experiences with it on a recently installed NEW replacement combination valve (i.e., combination...

    Leaky combination valve

    Very interesting observation - much Thanks for sharing. It gives the appearance that the hole in the left unit is an enhancement by design for some unknown reason (especially since it is purposefully designed and subsequent to the OEM design) Any hydraulic fluid engineers reading this post...

    Jack Stowage Problem

    FWIW... Check out this Postal post for an engine bay photo. https://www.cj-8.com/threads/84-postal-do-what.50193/#post-418595 There doesn't appear to be a jack on the RH fender of that postal... instead there appears to be an engine control module where the jack would be on a LHD.

    Brake bleeding frustrations!!!!

    Let us know what happens. Here's the location of the metering pin (red arrow). The tool slides over the metering valve retaining nut (red circle) to keep the pin depressed while bleeding.

    Brake bleeding frustrations!!!!

    It could be another bad MC... I've even had that happen to me when buying a NAPA MC. Your system is stock... correct? Assuming the hard lines and brake booster (which you didn't touch) are good.... Since you put through 3 qts already, I'm guessing you bled the brakes correctly by depressing...

    How not to cross a river in a CJ-8 (or anything)

    What a coincidence seeing this video! I met a guy this summer while I was camping and kayaking slot canyons on Lake Powell (Glen Canyon Natl Rec Area) who happen to be wheeling with this Scrambler owner in this video when this happened (i.e., when this was filmed)... he showed this to me on his...

    Cool looking JK Crambler! Do you have any plans to "bob" it like what seems like everyone does with their CJ-8? :P.... jk

    Decal Question

    I believe 1984-1986 had color-matched "Jeep" logos on the Renegade & Laredo models. I based this on: The book "Jeep: The unstoppable legend", has a photo of a 1985 Renegade with a "Jeep" logo color-matched to the stripes (dark brown metallic) The book "Jeep: The unstoppable legend", has a...

    Who wheels their Jeep, or just drives it or????

    For what it's worth, I'd look at finding a way to restrict and preferably eliminate under the hood hot air.

    Who wheels their Jeep, or just drives it or????

    Point me to another thread of there is one. One other idea.... What & where is your air intake? Hesco"s CAI they include with the MPI kit is terrible (it breathes nothing but hot air.. It should be called an HAI, not CAI) I'm using a TJ 4.0 tube and box on the pass side away from the...
