    90 Eliminator revival

    I just met another Jeep guy, he has 3-4 xj's, 1 mj and a wj. I bought a front end off him (that actually has gears that match the rear) so the 3.07 front is getting replaced soon and that means I can go wheeling, and yes I told him about this site, said he'd be on tonight
  4. On December 5th before the snow storm we just had. I found a 04 Jeep Liberty Renegade at LKQ. With 3 hours till having to be a plus one at a wedding, i made it to LKQ dropped the Nv3550 with a hour 40 mins to go. Stock shifter which is uniquely bent seems perfect i might keep it that way. I will admit it was sketchy as hell crawling under this dropping a trans and transfer case.
  5. Hey Everyone, Hows it going. I'm new to the forum. I joined the jeep world back in 2010 my first being a 04 5spd Tj Rubicon, then a 06 6spd Lj rubicon, finishing off with a 04 TJ Auto Rubicon. i always had a eye on the Comanches but never really know much about them. I sold all my jeeps Aug 2016 regretting it 9 months later. So Nov 9th i found a 88 Comanche. i put down deposit site unseen. I'm glad i did it has to be one of the cleaned unibodys underneath ive ever seen. On the 11th i bought the truck and rented a uhaul and picked it up. Its a long bed and i love it for multiple reasons. I think done right they are sexy, Also I'm a motorcycle track day rider and my bike on its PITBULL trs mounting system fits perfect with the tail gate up. Whats unique is that i live in a apartment complex so i rented 2 single car garages just for this build.

    junkyard score!

    Harmonic Balancer?

    Also make sure to rent the install tool while you are at it. Once its returned its a zero cost to you, so why not have it on hand? At least my local place the removal and install are two separate tools.

    junkyard score!

    Pete I constantly see loads of kj. in the expensive more chain type yards so I never look knowing the pricing. I need to start keeping an eye out in the honey holes where stuff is cheap. Newer stock is usually not sitting in these places. Many times the leads I find the yards have been permanently closed. Yesterday the 1st two I showed up to were like that. The next 1 was an accidental stumble from a local on the way to another. My best finds are 2 or 3 generation family owned yards not on the web, unlisted, out in bfe.

    Replacing idler pulley

    I found a bolt directly underneath the reservoir that needed to be loosened. Was the one that slides. Took me forever to find it. Once I loosened that, the rest was easy. The old idler pulley had eaten the ball bearings inside it. Good grief. No wonder it froze. Anyway, all is good now. Thanks

    Bobbed 89 comanche build

    No real updates lately. Been focusing my spare funds on the upcoming holidays. I did manage to order and install this new stinky fab trans mount after my stock one took a beating on my last wheeling trip. Planning some upgrades starting right after the new year though

    Bobbed 89 comanche build

    The speedo does not work due to the 241 having an electric speedo and the older Renix Jeeps having a mechanical one. Rear output on the T case was swapped to a regular yoke that I had Tom woods make me so no drive flange on the case anymore Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Harmonic Balancer?

    Rent the puller from the local parts store....don't try to McGyver the thing off any other way. On a 2.5 you can carefully get away with pulling it without pulling the radiator, but it's safer if you do. Replace the front seal on the timing cover while you have the HB off, it's cheap and worth it.
