Comanche Fanatic (7/10)

  1. The injector and throttlebody on the ‘87 I have were replaced along with the computer before I got it. All my MJ stuff will be headed to the scrapyard (I’m too sick to do anymore and I need to clean my place so I can sell it ASAP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nothing loose other than a whole front clip less the grill surround. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. 79 (actually all ‘74-91 full size) 4 Dr wagons are within an inch of width wheel mounting surface to WMS at both ends. The rims are a different offset to make it sit wider and also pre ‘80 are offfset axles on the wrong side at both ends. (Front is passenger side till ‘80 and rear is quadratrac offset to the right as well) J10s and 2 Dr Cherokees are too wide unless you find the oddball narrowtrac 2dr without fender flares. Model 20 rear came in ‘80 until ‘88ish when the Grand Wagoneers (84-91) went back to D44 as M20s went to the Humvee production. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have a shortbox townside bed (7’ long) in Seattle with an ‘83 I’m parting for the Stepside bed and rollbar to go onto my lifted‘84. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. It’s going to depend on whether you need a hauling truck, tow vehicle, off-road capability or fuel economy with passenger space. There is a reason almost every GM truck with digital dash is pulled in the junkyard. On Fords, the 5.4 is alternately praised or cussed (spark plug/coil vacuum issues and the wrong auto trans cost me $5,000 to replace in a truck I bought for $500!) That dial [emoji90] shift Dodge has on the dash nearly got me killed when a swing gate was closing and I nearly got skewered because it won’t reverse directions or shift if you slam on your brakes and in the dark it can be confused for the heater fan control or radio volume.

  7. To get an idea how it would work, try climbing into the back of your truck through your rear window removed, without A: kicking the driver or another passenger in the head, B: knocking the gear shifter out of position C: Kicking the windshield or D: Nearly causing an accident by blocking the view to the right as your truck starts death wobble on a downhill 3 lane highway at 65 mph while some jackass passes you on the right at 90+ mph while hauling a boat that is easily 3 times what he could safely stop with as evidenced by his smoking brakes throwing sparks as he passes you in heavy long weekend traffic on I-90 just before Issaquah, WA and your sons just informed you that the canopy clamps were popping apart from the shaking.

  8. One of the first things I would do is ensure that the Orings on the injector aren’t leaking (assuming you have Renix TBI like most US models) That’s about the “economy “ I got with my ‘88 with 33” tires, 3.73 gears and a pallet of concrete bags or cinder blocks running 4.0L AW4 and over 250,000 miles on it.

  9. The head was the same for carb and TBI. I did the swap long ago when a carburetor died and just swapped intakes for the TBI one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. I’d be looking to fit that Toyota dually rear in if the MJ’s frame fits between the tires with room to flex. If it’s the 5 lug, they are same pattern as Jeep (not sure on the center hole diameter) and if it’s the 6 lug version, an upgrade on the front diff to one from a Full-size ‘80+ Jeep Wag/ Grand Wag/80-83 Cherokee 4 Dr will get you a matching 6 lug pattern.

  12. 84/85 did indeed use the Motorcraft electronic ignition. The HEI or points distributor from a 2.5 GM 4 cyl (as used in boats and 60s Chevy II Nova) should work with the same gear swap as Chev inline 6 dist to Jeep in-line six. There is a 4.0L 4 bbl carb manifold available out there too. The single injector in the throttle body system isn’t too bad unless the Orings are leaking. I considered putting one on a 4.0L with the Renix flexplate to run the 4 cyl Computer for injection. The idea was bandied about years back on the Jeep Stroker Six and Renixpower yahoogroups. The AX4 or AX5 won’t bolt to a 4.0L, but Toyota used a variant of those transmissions. I considered getting a 2wd 2LT or bigger Toyota 4 cyl diesel for the swap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I still have a great dislike for the Vee belt system. Especially when the alternator bracket doesn’t have the AC brace from above. So many of those broke over the years and I had at least one fall forward and eat the radiator with no warning.
  14. Crap. I must’ve copied/pasted the wrong item number. There was a bag with the dust plug in it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Item 112155133608 on that evil bag site. Keep in mind that it’s also a Wrangler part. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
