  1. Tight fit up front with the radiator and condenser but it all fits Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It was a tight fit going in. I’m having a hard time getting the carriage bolts centered in the middle of the motor Mount so I can slide the lower bushing in. Anyone have any advice? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m happy with this. Came out good Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Thank you, this has been a long time coming. I’m gonna be raptor lining the engine bay tomorrow if the rain holds out. I’ll let that dry for a few days and then drop the engine in finally. Still a lot to do but that will be a mile stone. Trying to get as much done as I can before I send it to paint at the end of next week. Got a factory wheel recovered in black leather. Keeping the horn button and my seat belts maroon. Everything else will be black. On the hunt for black door panels. Holy $#!& expensive Hood pin set I went with. Also ordered the dirt bound battery tray. Looks to
  6. Went with the trail cat seats with their matching brackets for the Comanche. We will see how they fit Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That’s exactly what I did, mimicked your set up, So thank you lol unfortunately there was no way to keep the stock hood latch. It moved it way to far back. I ended up getting flat black flush Mount hood pins. Not my first choice by any means but it should look clean. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. These are the seats I have been thinking for my truck. Have you put them in yet just to see how the fitment is? Are you using the stock MJ brackets or did you get the corbeau brackets? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. New core support is all welded in and radiator is in place. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Mocked up the radiator set up. Dropped the truck at my buddies fab shop today I’ll be going back Tuesday to weld in the new radiator support. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This digital dash is gonna be bad @$$ lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Taking it to my buddies fab shop Tomorrow for some welding. Then back here to Drop the LS1 in Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Fuel cell came Ordered these last night too. Found them on amazon for $649 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Oh yea, for simplicity sake and also because, why not. I’m doing a 20 gallon fuel cell in the bed with -6 AN fuel lines. This truck will never see dirt, off road etc. it’s a cruiser and just weekend driver Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Got the rear lift kit installed. This week I’m taking the truck to my buddies fabrication shop and we are cutting the cross member out and welding in a tubular bar with mounts for the radiator. A few people have done it on here already so I’m using their picture / idea. Being an 86 there is really no other good option. The truck will be home by the weekend at which point the engine bay will be raptor lined and the LS1 will be installed 48 hours later. I have the LS1 completely ready to go in. Brakes are all done as well. We are getting close boys. Once the engine is in I’ll strip the truc
  16. Installed the tubular upper control arms today and put the 33s on Locked in the paint color today. About 3-4 weeks and hopefully it will be at the body shop. I know I have been saying 3-4 weeks for years but the time is finally here. Going sarge green Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Well...if you can believe it I still don’t have the motor mounts back from Novak, they have had them since 11/16. Went from great customer service to $#!&. They claim this week, again. Otherwise engine and trans is ready to go in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. In the mean time I installed the full Clayton control arm kit, adjustable Clayton track bars and 2.5” Mopar lift with 1.5” teraflex spacer on the gladiator with 35” milestar Patagonia’s. Looks so awesome now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Still waiting on the motor mounts unfortunately. Has been a big delay. Found some gladiator Sport S wheels today on Craigslist brand new. $100 for all 4. Putting the 33” wild peaks off my gladiator on these wheels and they should look great on the Comanche. Adapters are on the way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Update. Looks like there is variance from early MJ/XJ to the 1987+ Novak with some excellent customer service here. So it’s gonna be a 2 week setback but it’s ok Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Gonna have to get the hammer out for sure. Yeaaaaa... so how the F did you tighten it? Can’t even get a wrench on it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Yep I’m honestly not sure. They fit the frame rail pretty good. I can’t get the holes to line up any better than the pics I took. They mounts in the install instruction packet are definitely different. I contacted Novak. I’ll keep you guys posted Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
