    Timgr, thank you for the PN and picture.

    Mike, That's pretty cool they're only 4 off and the same color. It's being returned to stock. I'm not the one working on it currently though as I'm not in the US at the moment. I got it from the 2nd owner who bought it from the original owner that he went to high school with. They got it with dealer installed warn hubs, Ramsey PTO winch (winch missing, PTO present), and Meyer hard top (AMC approved accessory sticker).

    If it helps any I checked out a ren II with a MEYER top and it had the swing out tire rack.This jeep looked as thou the top and rack where dealer installed.
    Couldn't open rear hatch with spare in stock position. It was a really nice jeep all stock that grandson inherited from original owner.Eastern Oregon ranch jeep with no rust .

    Interesting, mine appeared to have a swing out carrier on it at one point until it was welded solid and turned into a cooler carrier. The back hatch on my top's been bolted shut, and all the other hardware removed.

    If it has a swing-out carrier, it's a Whitco, like above. The carrier I showed was used on the '72 Renegade with the solid back panel. I thought the solid back panel carried over from the '71... maybe not. Certainly the PN of the carrier 986351 is from the time of the takeover, maybe even late 60s. A '72ish PN would be maybe 535xxxx or another 7-digit number.

    My '71 has a solid back panel. I was under the impression that Ren IIs came with a fixed tire carrier. A lot of stuff has been messed with on mine. It would make sense to have a swing out with a meyer hard top because otherwise you can't use the rear hatch, which is I believe why mine was bolted shut and had the rest of the rear hardware removed.

    I have an RII that P.O. installed an aftermarket mechanical pressure gauge. The wiring is intact from firewall to the engine block location as is the underdash wiring. I've sourced an original gauge and prior to installing I]'d like to verify if and where the resistor is/should be found. He's a couple pics of engine side harness. It appears the oil and ammeter gauge wiring was it's own separate harness of 3 wires (two yellow and a violet) that are taped and run through the grommet with the balance of the wires. firewall wiring.jpg firewall wiring 2.jpg

    This is very helpfu to have the dimensionsl. Re the color. I have the cowl portion yet the hood sides and center stripe for some reason removed and painted over, remnants of the center stripe remain under the hood. The rear of the side stripes, but not the front are rolled to the inside of the hood. All remnants are definitely black. I've seen the charcoal subject discussed here. Came across this photo and the word charcoal trim is inserted after the color, yet the center "ridge" is described as low-gloss black.
    Just where does the charcoal come in? Did they decide to call black, charcoal?
    Edit: I now believe the words charcoal trim refer to the pin-stripe inserts of the original upholstrey.
    Both the original stripe remnants, including a portion of the painted center stripe under the leading edge of hood of our Ren II match the repro side stripes we bought that are black. The only trace of charcoal on the jeep is the vinyl seat inserts. See pics in related post "Renegade ll - March 1971 Reference Photos" in the "Early Jeep Restoration and Research section.
