Well I've been hanging around here for over two years now and have never show you guys what i've been up to. So here we go,

 

My first rig was an 88 Pioneer with a 4-banger, 4-Speed, and and 4wd. I trashed it over 3 years and sold what was left of it. I had a slew of vechicles after that and realized the rig I liked the best was my old Comanche. So I started hunting Craigslist for the perfect Comanche and found what I was looking for in San Jose, California. 800 miles from me. Rented a car drove there, and drove the Comanche home.

 

Here's what I got an 87 Comanche Chief with the 4.0 BA-10 4x4 with a 44 Rear.

I did a few small mods in the first few months but about 9 months ago I parked it and it underwent a major surgery.

It now sports an AX-15, a Waggy 44 front, TnT longarms, OTK steering, 4.56 gears, Detroits front and rear, and fresh 35x12.50 X-terrains.

 

I drove it today for the first time in 9 months, I took it for a spin around the block. I had no rear shaft, so it was a Front wheel drive trip. It'll be getting an alignment in the near future, and I have a few other bugs to fix but she's getting close. I got a lot of help from this board, thanks guys.

If you need to cut the fenders for the clearance needed to be able to turn from lock to lock when fully flexed let me know.

Hey when you swapped over the waggy44 what did you do about the brakes? Since the D44 has bigger brakes up front..I'm planning a waggy44/explorer 8.8 swap on my XJ here soon

yes it is the RE bracket kit. works out great except for the breather on the top of the axle is very hard to get to with the truss right on top.

I've spent quite a bit of time on my shift linkage now. what is the trick to getting it to work after the AX-15 swap?

Great looking MJ! I should be sitting around the same height when I finish up. What size springs did you end up using?
