    Any color.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I found the original key to my XJ in the cargo area under the carpet under the spare tire. Spare keys are hidden in some strange places.

  6. More than likely a 4 inch lift and 31's. The transmission needs to be upgraded too an AX15. I also intend to convert to a 4wd using a late model XJ. Try to gain the best rear axle for hauling stuff and towing an eight foot trailer with furniture and what ever else. Will also use late model front end, convert to the late model dash, replace the fabric on the bench seat or see if I can upgrade to something better. I like a darker interior like black. For me this is just a truck. Not even weekend warrior. Not to say I won't ever be going Off-Road. Just not crawling or anything heavy. I want to maybe paint the truck blue. But another color like the ford super duty blue jean paint. I do want to have good quality parts. When the time comes I'm thinking about converting over to the Cummins R2.8 inline four. Yes I'm a diesel head. The engines around 8K. Comes with everything for the engine. https://www.cummins.com/engines/repower
  7. What are your plans for the truck? Welcome to the addiction!
  8. my XJ lifted 5 1/2" with drop bracket making ride huge different smoother ride also give u better flex too i been daily and offroad with zero issues for like 3 years now. PS. 4 arm control by core 4x4 Drop bracket by rough country
  9. Where to begin? This is my 1988 Comanche Olympic Edition. Has the straight six with what I think is the BA10. It is pretty ruff looking. The PO was a hard smoker. So the interior was pretty much layered in tobacco tar. I had to wipe it down with ammonia to remove it off the dash, steering wheel, doors, etc.. The truck is pretty much rust free. Ive not seen any cancer yet. There was a little rust on the passengers side floor. Easy fix and then painted it with Rust-oleum. The carpet was actually that vinyl floor padding. It wasn't to bad other than having crap all over it and rips, holes worn in it, etc. so in the trash it goes. I prefer using a bench seat. However this bench seat was nasty. It smelled and had stuff spelt on it with food and who knows what else. And yes it was covered in cigarette smoker and tar. I wasn't about to trash the seat. I need to use it until I can either reupholster it, source out another bench seat from a salvage yard ( dodge, chevy, ford, etc..). So I broke the seat down. I removed all the seat covers. The back of the seat was actually incased in a plastic bag. No rips or tears. That saved the back cushion. It looked new and did not smell. The lower cushion was another story. I placed the top and bottom seat covers in the washing machine set on sterilize. I did the same to the bottom cushion. Its still worn but I can fix that my glueing foam and poly batting. Not going to worry about covering the foam with plastic. Here are photos after being washed. I haven't put the bottom together yet. BTW the foam you see under the seats back is it resting on the foam bottom.
  10. These are listed again, a year later. $1200 for the truck, and $500 for the extra bed. https://york.craigslist.org/pts/d/york-jeep-comanche-parts/6869035582.html https://york.craigslist.org/pts/d/york-comanche-parts/6869041633.html
  11. Damn jeeps. Damn kids. Just when you think your on track..... I haven't built mine yet...clearly, but I do like to dream about the "if I was doing it tomorrow what would I do". At first when I got my MJ I was like let's cut this b*@ch up make a sweet truggy, got a bunch of parts to start building then I started to kind of like just driving it as is. 4 links rear are awesome and if you wheel it should be a nice choice. I've decided I'll never wheel my MJ, they are just too unique and mines in decent enough shape that I'd rather just have a restomod pavement pounder. I'll be keeping leafs but if you can link it go for it! Before my wife decided she was better at spending my money than I was I had this beast. I'll admit I cheated and bought it with most everything done, especially the body work, but the price was so good I just couldn't justify restoring the other one I had.
  12. Thank for the info, I have a 96 xj underhood light that I may try and rig up to the old connector
  13. Hey guys thanks this is just to get the manche runnin and driving so i can part out the yj to fund the build. Planning on running adjustable uppers and lowers. Rustys or ruff stuff is what ive been looking at for diy as i am a metal fabricate for a living
  14. That axle in the first pic looks like a 8.25 to me. It has the pinion snubber bosses on the snout.
  15. Explain why you feel drop brackets are not any good? I have been using them for a long, long time and have had zero issues, ever getting hung up on them.
  16. How much were you going to sell it for? I could make it up that way this weekend
  17. ^^^LOL, yup. I think he's also mistaken when he's telling me the fuel filter is in-tank with the pump. All of the interneting I've done today (while I'm here hard at work) is showing the filters were inline on the driverside framerail up to 2006. IIRC, his 'burb is either an 03 or 04. I would be totally not shocked if he was wrong on that. It could be just as simple as swapping in a new $10 filter. Or not.
  18. Totally dig the build so far Comanche SS. Question for you. What does your lift consist of?
  19. Ty Derry '87 Pioneeer Fayetteville, NC I am a full time student studying networking and doing some welding classes. Work as a part time IT guy at my church/school. Edit: I also work for Mission BBQ and I drive their deuce and a half that has a big smoker on the back.
  20. Interesting. Long ago, I had the magnet hide-a-key. Somewhere in the world, someone has that hide-a-key box with a Jeep key, but no Jeep to go with it.

  22. Work properly......Long arm that sucka. 5" on short arms is pushing it. You can put on control arm drop brackets but kind of defeats the purpose of lifting it. You plannig on running adjustable uppers? I'd also ditch cRustys they make junk. And the JK arms need to be rear uppers.
  23. If you did, then let me know and I'll send you a free distributor Oring. Anyone who already purchased the Oil Filter Adapter Orings from me before I included the distributor Oring can get one for free
