Comanche Addict (5/10)

  1. The Cab roof is all done! I also came across a 1996 Xj overhead console at a Salvage yard in St. Louis Missouri! Apparently these are pretty rare so we retro fitted it for the MJ cab somehow the original computer is still working, I had o buy a $40 ambient air temp sensor for the temp to work, but I think its super cool to have in a older vehicle! The Wiper motor didn't survive the submersion, so i picked one of those up too and swapped it out! The interior is completely redone now! I'm just waiting on some Cavfab steering parts to come in the main and she should be all road ready again! We reinforced the headliner with some fiberglass and fiberglass bondo and its holding its shape awesome! As for the Turbo, I've just been enjoying the whistle sound for now, I have a tuner close by that said hes ready to rock with it whenever I'm ready! I'm glad HP tuners now supports older Chrysler. I reached out to Ryan Hogan a few months back but he seems to be a busy man! Tuning is something I've always been interested in, but last time I tried it cost me an engine hahah! At this point the only original 1986 parts on this Jeep are the Body and Headliner! I never thought id be at this point 8 years ago when I was 16! Photodump
  2. I visited my dad today and realized I haven't touched my Jeep since September! I went to start it today and it started first crank! I usually start it weekly, but life got in the way. The Cab job seems super daunting so I haven't given it any thought since getting the parts Comanche. I need to relight my Jeep Fire I really really really miss driving the MJ. Its by far my favorite vehicle to drive around and its been over a year since I've had it fully up and running. I also noticed after reading through this thread that I've been super optimistic about the timing that I'm going to get things done 😂
  3. Not measurable, it seems to run a lot better with the cooler air going in! The new cab should be on by the end of October and then it’s going to get tuned for boost! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Newest update! I decided to relocate the battery and run an intercooler. Here’s a video! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’m not! Is there a write up on this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Sorry I’m just seeing this Pete! How much shipped? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Agreed! I’d sacrifice a Mclaren for this bad boy though [emoji23] it’s to sentimental! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I have not a clue, it came out of Dupo, Illinois! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I ended up finding a donor MJ on Facebook Marketplace and picked it up for cheap today! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Anyone selling a MJ Cab Roof? I’ll pay for shipping and whatever you want for the part! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Here is the first test drive with the turbo! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Here was the accident I was in in the Jeep back in July, the area I live in was flooded and the road collapsed under a train trussel I was unaware of. The department of transportation in my state had cleared all roads safe to drive in that area! Long story short it flipped and I had to jump out mid flip [emoji50] Not a fun day! Here are the results: I think the Cosmetic Rollbar Coated with Line- X saved the back side of the cab and the rear window! I’m waiting for more Jeep funds to get the body work redone! Advice to fix a Waterlogged 4.0L After the accident I drained all of the fluids from everything that could hold fluid and filled them with Diesel, including taking the plugs out and filling the cylinders with diesel. Differentials I filled with 10/30. After being pissed off for a month, I drained all of the diesel and put the proper fluids back in (including differentials) The Jeep started right up with new plugs, the only thing that needed replaced was the throttle positioning sensor. Random things stop working daily, mostly electrical. I’m recently having a fuel cut out problem and the CEL came on. I’m sure I will continue to have issues until everything gets slowly replaced! Sorry for the long post, I haven’t been on here in some time! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks Pete! [emoji4] here is the most recent picture of the Turbo setup! I’ll have a video here soon. I need to upload it to Youtube in order to post it here! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
