And for Sharon; Rectangular headlamps were not an option in 1986. 1986 was the last year for the Jeep CJ, which had round headlamps, and 1987 was the first for the Jeep YJ, which had rectangular headlamps. Holdover 86's and early 87's were both on the dealer lots at the same time.
I'm guessing the Chrysler employee that passed on that bit of info was just weaning or maybe hadn't been born yet.
PS: The next time they throw you the keys to a Jeep, take it to Silver Lake sand dunes for the weekend.
