  1. It's a good show of skill and a fun way of adding 3rd row seating? Maybe they wanted extra stability when towing their off road trailer? Either way it's interesting. But they should have figured out a way to drive the extra axle also..
  2. That's where I bought mine was ebay.. I can't even remember what exact term I searched, I was looking for nice new glass headlights.. but this was 2013 or 14? It was like $500.. came with headlights, header panel, and grill insert.. had to modify front fenders around the headlights.. it does require some cutting of inner metals though.. next time I'm at my parents I'll try and take some pictures of it for you if you'd like
  3. I think my dad just reused the 2doors when he did the strikers on mine but I can't remember.. jeeps been sitting since I got married 4 years ago.. I'll have to take a peak inside there and see how he did it..
  4. IF you can find a 2door, they have extra bracing behind the striker area.. I pulled the striker area sheet metal off a 2 door for mine and found it.. maybe try that or something similar? It goes at like a 45* angle back towards the rear wheels on an xj.. I'm sure something similar with some heavy guage metal would prevent that striker from moving at all..
  5. About 1:40 you can see the sweet spot for prying it out.. that's how I did my dad's ZJ 242 swap/rebuild a few weeks ago.. i used a few of these guys videos and then this write up - https://kevinsoffroad.com/blogs/kevinsoffroad-com-death-wobble-experts-upgraded-factory-parts-20-years-of-experience-info-and-knowledge/249-to-242-swap-by-wes-solitude and it got me through just fine.
  6. 1986 Jeep Comanche http://www.ksl.com/auto/listing/4469903 Not sure how much is salvageable on it.. if I had the space/time/money I'd grab it to part out..
  7. I'm guessing then It's fuel pressure, either the pump can't supply enough any more, or there's a clog in the lines somewhere..
  8. Is it getting correct fuel pressure? And is it getting spark? I'd Make sure it's getting spark first sense is easy. Then check fuel pressure. Maybe use some either (starter fluid) if it kicks over on that, it's still fuel.
  9. Well, it's still being worked on, just been busy with getting married and buying a house. Front axle is ready to go under, just have to do doors, weld my cross member, and plumb brakes. It still feels so far.
  10. Get Bushwackers for the Chevy pickup then? They make some that just go out, not cut up the rest of the Fender I believe. I'm looking into doing the Notch customs flares for my truck. Same as Iceland off road, notch customs got their molds when they went under.

  12. If you're running steel wheels them you won't need the longer studs, but for the others you can get longer studs firm the auto store from a grand Cherokee ZJ if I remember correctly. P/N 610-234 by Dorman.1/2"-20 X1-5/8" is the size.
  13. Thanks, it's getting there. I got my lighting wired up, new rear harness made, grabbed both ends of the rear harness plug to make a trailer harness. Got hinges rebuilt and ready to weld in. Have a 8.25 to swap disc's on. Need to figure out wiring the doors up. Getting close. But still so far.. I have till August to get it all done.
  14. Found 3 different comanches in a Junkyard, 2 LWB, 1 short.. thinking I'll turn the short into a trailer.. probably gonna grab some manche specific stuff along with my tail light harness..
  15. Picked up an 8.25 and zj rear brakes yesterday for 120. And also got all my hinges.
