  1. Nice work. I’ve got to ask, how much lift did you get out of the back with your swap? I’ve some Super Duty axles that I’m trying to work on and wasn’t quite sure how much I’ll have to lift the front. Keep up the nice work. I’m looking forward to seeing your progress.
  2. Thanks for the response. It’s what I was looking for, since I really don’t want to have to tear things up if I don’t have to. I did look into some of the factory holes in the rails with a flashlight and the most I saw in there was a few speckles of surface rust but nothing as far as pitting or rot. Stopping what has already started and preventative measures for future problems is what I’m really aiming for. Thanks for the suggestion. I will be looking into borescopes now. Now I just need to get the cab leaks taken care of so I can start working on the rust.
  3. I’ve got surface rust only and will have to remove the floor supports and upper unibody rails to clean it up, so I was wondering while that is going on, would it be possible to remove the entire floor pan without the truck falling apart? I ask because I would like to see how the inside of the rails look while cleaning up the rust, but also would like to keep the floor pan as whole as possible since I have no rusted through areas anywhere.
  4. Thanks for the reply. I was wondering because I have been thinking about getting the fenders and bedsides when I put my tons in since the new stance will be considerably wider than stock. I’m still trying to figure out how to go about mounting the bedsides. What kind of fasteners did you use? Got any good pictures of the process or tips?
  5. Everything from the dash forward will fit. Front doors on a four door XJ will fit the MJ. Engine, transmission, and transfer case will swap right in. Front suspension and drive line also. As long as it’s from the same era all those components should swap over, however high output and renix electrical and head/exhaust manifold are different and they switched from vacuum disconnect to non-vacuum disconnect on the front axle on high output as well. Coolant systems are easily swappable from closed to open as well.
  6. How did you go about your fuel setup with those bedsides? Did you retain the stock filler neck?
  7. How bout those fogs? With wiring? And switch? Maybe?
  8. Awesome job! I wish I had those skills.
  9. I can’t wait to see how these turn out. I’m not going to be able to sleep now.
  10. Rereading my previous post several times, it is really unclear. Maybe after I get my head unclouded from everything that’s going on today I can make sense of what I was really trying to ask and why. I like your build and the triumphs you have had to overcome with it. Great job!
  11. Do you have any detailed pics of your final exhaust setup? I plan on doing a super duty axle swap, hopefully in the not so distant future, I’ve been researching for a couple years on the swap. I haven’t found a MJ specific swap build and if you don’t mind me using your exhaust masterpiece for an example to go by. That is if you don’t mind.
  12. You’re making me want to buy a welder and start learning. Eventually I’ll have to do it anyway.
  13. I’m still trying to track down my old pictures so I can start a build thread. It doesn’t look like much yet but I’ve at least gotten it to daily driver status for about a year and a half now. I can’t wait to see your finished product.
  14. I used to get pretty butt hurt when someone would call my Comanche a piece of junk. Usually the comments would come from my wife because I was working 60 hr weeks at my old job and I was still in the reserves. So, between work, drill weekends and annual training it didn’t give me much time to work on the truck or spend time with the family. After I had fixed some collision damage and completed the HO swap she apologized because she thought I was wasting our time and that I would never get it running again. So no matter what people say around you never let it get you down and know that one day everyone else will get to see your plans become reality. I can’t wait to hear what happens when people find out your truck can out flex a bodybuilder lol. Keep up the great work.
