    1987 Jeep comanche

    Little update. So I installed the exhaust pipe and all of a sudden it was hitting the cross member and rattling. Turns out that couple month old trans mount was shot. Replaced it, no more rattle. However couple days before I went to smog it, It started randomly cutting out on me like someone flicked a switch leaving aux power on. No stuttering just dead. Turns out, the new crank sensor? Toast.. Thankfully was a bwd so was still under warranty. Now I finally know what it's like owning a jeep and keeping a spare sensor in the glove box. As for smog? Passed flying colors! AND as an added bonus, the smog tech stop his conversation (with whom happened to be my regional manager at oreillys who doesn't REALLY know me only my name because I only work Sundays lol) to tell me that I had one of the cleanest vehicles he's ever had in his shop and said I had done an excellent job and to keep it up. This had a huge impact on my morale as it gets frustrating sometimes and it let me know I'm making progress. Much needed. After smogging the truck, I was on a mission that day. A fellow CC member Francesco had a tailgate with my name on it 2 hours away. Off we went after dealing with a no start issue the day before. Filled up before leaving town and got there no issues, picked up the tailgate, then went to get gas. Went about topping it off, click.. What the?? It only took like 6 gallons?? I must be out of money?? So I check my account to double check and guess what? Plenty there.. No way possible I drove almost 200 miles and barely used 6 gallons?? Turns out, this pig actually did REALLY good on gas. While my Speedo is a little off since I have 31s I know it's not accurate, I went from 11mpg city to almost 19mpg hwy!! Good enough numbers for me at least lol. Back to the tailgate though. I picked it up for a good price and got to sanding. Just yesterday I finally got the face all stripped down and put a layer of primer down to stop the flash rust as I work. Started a little bit of bondo work and in excited for the finished product already! For the inside I'm going to rough it up to put a fresh coat of primer over and I will be bedlining the bed so not too worried about the inside. That's all for now. Now for the pictures!

    1997+ Windshield Wiper Upgrade

    I did the 97 wiper arm swap with bean blades once I finally fixed my wipers and I love them for the most part. The right side wiper doesn't quite hug the windshield that great but no chatter at all. Sent from my LGMS210 using Tapatalk

    I don't have one, but curious as to what drivetrain you have? And if any lift? Sent from my LGMS210 using Tapatalk

    Another no spark issue

    I just had the same issue and it was my crank sensor which I had just replaced a couple month's before. Pop the connector on the crank sensor and measure voltage across I think A and B it should be .5v mine measured .2v and when I plugged it back in I got a few more runs out of her lol ran downtown got a new sensor, stopped for dinner, AND made it home and then replaced it and has been fine since. I would at least test it if your cables are tight grounds are good and still not getting spark. Sent from my LGMS210 using Tapatalk

    1987 Base Ignition Switch

    Nevermind I figured it out super easy lol getting it adjusted was the tricky part but definitely easier with the column dropped. Sent from my LGMS210 using Tapatalk

    I would actually be interested in the driver side drip rail for the right price and if you are willing to ship. Sent from my LGMS210 using Tapatalk

    1987 Base Ignition Switch

    I'm actually about to do this. How hard is it to remove the linkage/rod from the switch? I know I'm going to drop the column down to get more room but not sure how the switch comes off exactly. Had a heck of a time trying to find a video that really explains it. Also Pete, I do believe that whoever replaced your switch might have gotten the wrong one. There are two, one with tilt and one without tilt column. The difference between the two is they are opposites so the wrong one will Mount backwards. Sent from my LGMS210 using Tapatalk
