  1. More pictures of the truck, can sell the wheels separate as well.
  2. No. I need to get the white truck sold or junked first before I can get to that.
  3. I have all of those loose, they don’t even have to come out of the white one
  4. @Sammisox it is Maroon but I have grey interior pieces from the 89 that rusted out from underneath me.
  5. I have to part with my last truck. I t-boned a minivan 3 months after I bought this one off of another member here. It was my plan after the wreck to make it a hybrid by putting an electric motor on a FWD axel, and all electric drive to the grocery store in something that could still haul a trailer, but nothing ever moved forward with the body work and it is time to go. The engine ran after the wreck but that was 3 years ago. The frame is straight to the front motor mounts and strut towers but the front 10" are a shorter and to the right of where they belong. Front axel looks to still be r
  6. The AX5 in my 89 2.5 locked up in 4th, when we took it apart and the teeth are wrecked on the input shaft. 9728166612
  7. So I recently bought an 88 2.5L from a guy that had put a lot of effort but no money into keeping it running. Cheap aftermarket guage cluster when sensors would fail. Push button light cause the dash lights would cut out every no and again, local bike cable release cause the hood cable broke. Fiberglass and chip board cause the floor rusted through. All that aside it started and ran alright best I could tell. Replaced the ignition system(starter relay, coil, cap, rotor, plugs, wires) Drove it for about 1000 miles then went after some other repairs. Traded the ax5 from my 89 that is a par
  8. Shop says I need a new steering column. I have seen the write ups about tightening it but it's in three shop and I am working 70 hour weeks so I just want to give them the new one they are asking for. Anybody have one in the Dallas/fort worth area? I have an 89 4cyl with a four speed
  9. I have come across stuff in the past while trying to read on other topics but am having trouble finding info now. I am curious about the performance and reliability of the 2.8 v6. I own a 2.5 that is a rust bucket (first jeep) and then I got a nice '90 4.0 but got in a wreck 3 months after buying it from a club member. I have been in a loaner vehicle for 6 months and have finally had the time to mess with the 4.0, one shop says they would scrap it, too much damage so I started shopping and I am seeing alot more v6 up for sale then ever before. I can stumble through most engine maintenance
  10. Thanks John, sorry for the short life I showed it, looking at trying maybe to take the front clip off of my rust bucket. My game plans are taking me a bunch of deffernt directions, not sure what the best move is
  11. I t-boned a mini van yesterday and totalled my COMANCHE in the front. no apparent damage behind the a pillar as of yet (havent gotten it from the yard) 1990 SWB 4.0L 2wd I also own a 1989 SWB 2.5L 2wd that is rusted so bad there is a 20 inch seam opening around the front knuckle of the driver side leaf spring (started its life in Iowa) I will be pulling parts from the 90 to make the 89 a little safer (both of the leaf springs have cracked and are u bolted back together) How do I put my ax-15 behind the 2.5? Should I take the gears out of my 4.0 rearend? easier to swap rear
  12. Did this ever get picked up?
  13. so I need to drain the lucas 75w-90 that I just put in it? I have a mechanic friend in town willing to do clutch pressure plate throw out ect but today is his only day. I think we are just gonna pull the trigger and head to my local rent-a-lift and replace all sacrificial parts. I am trying not to drive the 2.5 because it is rusted to the point of being a death trap. No rear breaks, both the main leaves on the springs have snapped and have $#!&ty home depot u bolts holding them together. The thing leans to the drivers side and get a prohibitively heavy vibration at 55mph. Both
  14. But if there are three slaves for every clutch then I want to convert to external
  15. I understand that it is easier to service I am asking how quickly they wear, if they wear at a similar rate to the clutch I can just replace the slave every time I replace the clutch since I have to drop the tranny for that anyway
