  1. Wow that thing is incredible. Well done!

    Finding Old MJs

    If it was a few years ago the truck is likely gone. But I would keep checking until you confirm that's the case. Even if it's in a salvage yard, probably 50% of it is now gone. Bummer. But the 2.8L wasn't the best engine either, so you'd be better off buying another one and fixing it up to match your grandfather's anyway.

    1986 MJ 2.8L V6 failed emissions.

    I know this is basic, well-known emissions test trick, so sorry if you already know about this :) . But have you tried driving it at highway speeds for like 45 minutes prior to testing? I only bring it up because my friend has an XJ with 2.8L V6 and he fails every two years for the exact same thing: "failed the tail pipe emissions inspection". Then he takes it on the highway for a bit, comes back, and passes. I don't know if it's legit, or just coincidence.

    Sneak Peek Gladiator Commercial Super Bowl LIII

    The best of both worlds.... or the worst, rather!
  5. The Prestige. My favorite movie, mostly because of how much it messed with me. I still watch it every few years and it's still awesome, but nothing like the first time. I remember watching it with my family in our living room when I was in high school and when the final credits started rolling my whole family was in silence for a good 20 seconds... then my dad just says, "Wow."

    Where's that?

    Inherited '88 Comanche. Market?

    Take pictures of the underside and the frame, look for rust there too. Peel back the carpet and inspect the floor panels for rust. One of my MJs came from a beach town and much of the underside was rusted through. Like in Oregon, I don't think they salt the roads in Idaho (I still have family in Coeur d'Alene) and the Jeep and Comanche market is pretty solid up there.

    Sounds like you got a nice one. Where you live can have a big influence on what the market is like. Throw up some pics!

    Sneak Peek Gladiator Commercial Super Bowl LIII

    It's a nice truck; maybe something to compete with the Tacoma that everybody and their brother is driving these days. But it'd be tough spending $50k on a new Jeep knowing what half that would do if it were spent on an MJ or J20 restoration. LOL. But you could say the same about any new car, I guess.

    My 2.5L had the same mirrors. The look great... except I had the muffler off and even while idle the mirrors would vibrate so bad that I couldn't see anything with them. Good lookin' MJ. I think you made a good purchase.

    But a street comanche is not an ATV.

    Street comanche #53

    Wait, what happened here? Did someone buy it for $1500 and is now trying to flip it for $10k, without cleaning it or updating the pictures?

    should I bring back the 3x5 CC stickers?

    I would probably get the American flag one. But they are all good. I think they would look better without the headache rack, but either way they look great.

    what did you do to your MJ today?

    Very nice.

    98 Cherokee

    I've had my 1998 XJ 4.0L 4x4 5MT for 10 years and it's been very reliable. I bought it at 94,000 and now it's almost 200,000. Other than tune-up stuff I've never had any surprised repairs. Still runs strong. No reason to think it won't be as reliable as your MJ based on the engine alone. Whether or not the engine was taken care of is another question though... this XJ looks pretty rough around the edges and usually that's a clue about how well the rest of it was taken care of. The fact he doesn't know it's not a V6 is concern also. LOL
