since the eagle had no factory low range, the brackets didn't have to account for that.
FOR SALE
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.

The Eagle was designed to have low range. The flat spot on the floor was actually used for the shifter in at least one prototype Eagle. It's too bad the designer's didn't convince AMC to keep it as an option.
