  1. Reduced price: $2,200 for the whole project
  2. *I edited the original post and updated the asking price: I had overlooked some of the details when adjusting the price. Please feel free to message me with questions or offers.
  3. I will finish up the sanding on the body and put on the black doors from the XJ and then I will no longer be able to work on the truck. I started the project in 2015 and then left home for two years, now that I'm home and don't have my own transportation I need to get a car quick to start school. If you search for the "Hawaii Jeeps" you should see most of my build process with this truck. The XJ had 118,000 miles on it, the MJ had 130,000 miles on it. As of right now, it is an empty shell with half of the 2000 XJ body panels on it (I will put the doors on as soon as the new lock pins come in the mail). I am currently sanding down the paint on the comanche panels that was done by the previous owner. I won't paint it since that will allow the buyer to paint it whatever color you would like. I found all the primer, base coat, and clear coat needed here in town priced at $350-$600 depending on the color of the base. I was planning to paint it Silverstone (Late model Cherokee Grey) or Mystic Gold Metallic, (a factory Tacoma color). I have all the Agate interior from the XJ including seats, which are all in great shape. The driver seat has a spot that was rubbed down in the fabric on the left side. I also have brand new extra padded carpet that is charcoal/dark grey colored. I have speakers, wiring, and a small amp for the sound system, (the speakers are brand new Kenwoods). Also I have a role of tint (I believe it's 5%). The original MJ interior panels can be painted Agate to match the XJ vinyl. I bagged up the nuts and bolts for the whole truck and wrote where they went with sharpie. The drive train: 2000 XJ 4.0 litre l6. I have new moog motor mounts, transmission mount, Felpro rear main seal, and Felpro engine gasket set. The transmission is automatic, the transfer case is a Np231 with advance adapters slip yoke eliminator installed professionally. The biggest things that are left on the to-do list include: Fabricate new seat mounts for XJ seats Fabricate or find firewall mounts for gas and brake pedals and get new pedals New front axle (there is only a 2wd axle with no differential in front) Gas tank modifications + fuel pump New paint job If you have any questions or if I left out any important details just let me know. I have a lot invested in the truck and I am asking $3,200 for the whole project. I don't think I can finish it but I would really like to see someone else make it happen. Here are pictures as of now:
  4. Thanks, it's coming along pretty well, and I've got some big plans for the Jeep.
  5. I got the XJ drive train taken out, and a friend helped me steam clean it.
  6. I have been working on the jeeps almost every day so far, and I am waiting on some various parts to be delivered. I have finished pulling the dash, it was fairly straight forward, but a pain to not break any wiring harnesses. I received a package today with a heater core, evaporator core, grommets and stuff for the valve cover, and an upper brake light/cargo light from a Mazda pickup truck. I will try to pull the engine tomorrow, I have it almost ready, just need to disconnect a few more things.
  7. Yeah, the transmission would make a great boat anchor, but I'll be replacing my whole DT anyway.
  8. Finished stripping the interior, almost like it was at the factory Then took on the drive train. I had a picture of the engine bay before removing it, but ill have to find it. Anyone looking for an I6 haha? it's got 130,000 miles on it
  9. Yeah, the whole jeep is basically rust free and it seems like a great MJ for the 97+ swap, since the interior was mostly trashed.
  10. This is my 2000 XJ donor, the suspension will go to my brother's XJ and ill use all that I can on my Comanche. The reason for mentioning Hawaii in the introduction... At this point I have almost finished stripping the interior of the comanche. I have also started stripping the XJ. I have seen MJ builds and dreaded the thought of fixing a rusted through floor, so needless to say I was happy to find this under the carpet.
  11. This is the Comanche, previous owner had repainted the truck white.
  12. The plans for the MJ include a full 2000 XJ swap, interior, exterior, and drivetrain. However, I might try to pick up an AX-15 to hook up between the 2000 engine and 231 T-case. Suspension will include around a 6in lift with long arms and an SOA. My end goal is to have a reliable camping/wheeling/hunting truck which can function as a daily driver if needed. I intend on posting plenty of pics as I go.
  13. I got a 2000 XJ as my first car, I bought it from my neighbor who had served in the marines stationed on the Hawaiian islands. Three years later, after spending endless time, money, sweat, and blood on it. Someone rear-ended me, totaled the Jeep and bent the uni-frame out of shape. I had always liked comanches and cherokees, so I decided I would find an MJ to transfer my XJ's heart, soul, and skin on to. I found a 1989 Eliminator in Lake Havasu City, Arizona with 130,000 miles, rust free, and a clean title. It was too good to let go. After an 8 hour drive through a ton of desert and Las vegas at rush hour, in a Jeep held together by prayers, I finally had it home. Little did I know that this MJ had spent time in Hawaii too :thumbsup:
