  1. Still no luck for me either. I'm running Tapatalk app version 7.2.3 on iOS which should be the current version.
  2. Anyone else having issues logging in via Tapatalk? I’m getting this error:

  5. Hello all! I run the @comanche.club account on Instagram and Pete has invited me to cross post those photos on here. I try to post a new MJ picture every day or two. Since my pics are typically sourced from Instagram I will usually have the truck owner’s IG account tagged, but obviously that doesn’t usually translate on here. I’ll still include the IG tag just to give some credit, but if I post a pic of your truck feel free to message me and I will include your CC username. With that said...less talk, more Comanche pictures! Owner @PSiTSi 89 Pioneer
  6. Hey, yep I run it. Most people DM me pics or tag me in pics via Instagram. I don't post everything that is sent to me. I try to keep it to nicer trucks and higher quality photos. People send in lots of crappy quality pics or beater trucks and I usually don't post those, haha. Every once in awhile I go searching the All Things Jeep Comanche FB page or the ComancheClub forums for fresh content. But the page is popular enough on IG now that I rarely have to do that anymore. And I only post about 1 pic per day.
  7. What a crazy year 2017 has been. Unfortunately, I have not had much time to devote to the MJ so I don't have much in the way of updates to post. I purchased a new, fun daily driver (2001 BMW M5) so that's been getting more of my attention these days. I really enjoy having the MJ as my alternate vehicle for Home Depot runs, dump runs, helping friends move, or when the M5 is in the shop. I'm moving from Maryland to Tampa, FL in a few weeks (if it's not underwater from Hurricane Irma, at least) and I'm finally getting a house with a garage so I'm hoping to be able to do more work on the MJ myself. Very difficult to do any serious projects while living in a townhouse with no garage. I'm hoping that 2018 will see some actual progress with the truck! Then again, my wife is pregnant, so that might be wishful thinking. On my short list of things to do after I get settled in FL: 1. Fix the A/C -- pretty sure it's gonna be miserable to drive this in the FL heat without A/C 2. Figure out how to lower the rear end a bit without going back to SUA. The stance sits a little high in the rear for my taste, as discussed before. I'm hoping that stock shackles and perhaps 2wd leafs or some sort of Explorer or XJ bastard pack will lower it enough so the rake doesn't look as obvious. 3. Dual diaphragm brake booster upgrade And for good measure, since these threads are worthless without pics:
  8. Thanks yeah I like the stance much better when it's lower in the rear! Looks more balanced now. Just gotta figure out the best way to make it permanent. It's cheap and easy to keep weight in the back, but it's not really a permanent solution unless it wears the springs out enough over time. I've done some research into swapping FSJ leafs or an XJ bastard pack that way I don't have to mess with going back to SUA. But I don't feel like messing with that right now so...bags of dirt it is!

  9. Looks awesome, amazing progress! What size tires? 33s? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Most guys are putting light bars on but I took mine off. Also loaded the bed up with about 360 lbs of lawn soil to see what it would look like a little lower. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I figured it would be something simple like that, herp derp, thanks guys! And yeah I've tried putting gorilla tape around the fins and it definitely helped with the lower speed noise, but it still makes noises at higher speeds.
  12. Long story short the previous owner put a light bar on my MJ and I'm considering removing it. I don't really use it and it makes a lot of annoying vibrating sounds at highway speeds. Anyway, I'm looking at the mounting brackets and I see these screws: I'm assuming these are some sort of security screws or something but I don't know. I'm trying to look up in the little holes to determine a thread pattern but can't tell. Any ideas on how to get these buggers out? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Ran into a fellow CC member on the road recently (TCB89MJ), had to chase him down and chat for a bit! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you sir! Honestly I haven't done much research into long arm setups. I hear they improve ride quality but they are more expensive. I'm not planning to do much off-roading with this truck so I don't know how much they would benefit me? Maybe something I'll consider further down the road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Mostly it would be for ride quality for you. And depending on how it's set up it might actually handle better. Drop brackets might be a good option for you too. They excel everywhere but offroad. Okay, they're not terrible offroad, they're just not perfect. Thanks for the info! I've done some more research into long arms and it's probably something I will do someday in the future. It'll be awhile though, funds are a little low right now and there are some other things I consider a higher priority with the truck right now. Namely: dual diaphragm brake booster upgrade and paint/bodywork.
