  1. It’s been awhile since I posted but quite a bit has been done to my Comanche. Freshly painted last night, updated to bucket seats, new tail lights, 97+ front clip conversion(I have a donor for the full swap), Lund visor found, interior being painted from Tan to Gray and much more tedious work.

  2. Hey guys/gals. So i started to build up my 87 Jeep MJ drum brakes and when i was tearing them down a few weeks ago, I noticed there were no parts inside except the driver side wheel cylinder. So I went to my local auto part store and ordered all that i could but am unsure of what all I need. Does anyone have a complete list or could they help me find a few of the levers/struts that go inside of it? I know I'm missing the park brake lever, the strut and spring and the shoe guide plate. Id like to mention it has a dana 35 with the 10inch x 2 1/4in brakes. Thank you in advance!

    Speaker Size?

    I know this is an old thread but I'm working on my 87 MJ and was tearing the front dash apart to do some rewiring and noticed it doesnt have the speakers under the dash. Does anyone know what size they are and the wires that go to them?
  4. Changing out seats and ripping out interior is a PITA

    Instrument cluster lights don't work

    Replaced headlight switch and created a jumper for the instrument cluster lamps and it works. Barely seen it considering i knowingly had one good bulb in. The switch was corroded and barely made contact. Cleaned up the ground while i was at it. Thanks everyone who helped me narrow it down!

    Sorry. I forgot to add that last night with the original post. 87' with the 2.5L and not sure if it has the 5 speed or 4 speed. Has a 5 speed shifter knob but won't go into "5th". No mods.

    Update Took a test light to the 5 amp fuse for the instrument lights and I am getting nothing. Anyone know where those wires come from?

    Roger that. Ill order a new one and swap it out and go from there. Should probably get some new bulbs while I'm at it. 194s right?

    I cleaned up a few grounds that i think are for the cluster but I'm not 100% sure theyre the right ones. I did take the cluster out and clean up the bulb receptacles along with the circuit board so they have little to no corrosion. I had the cluster plugged in all lights on and where I thought the switch needed to be in total darkness and no lights.

    Instrument cluster lights don't work

    I have messed with the dimmer switch because I've been told theyre a royal pita. Ill take that apart and look into getting a new one..if i can find one. Ive had a hard time finding parts. As far as the headlights I have considered upgrading to newer housings with actual bulbs like I did on my TJ and my wifes Jeep.
  14. Hey guys. So ive tried to figure out why my back lights on my cluster won't turn on and I'm at a stand still. Ive check continuity between the wires from fuse box to cluster and took a test light to the fuse box, checled bulbs, checked the recepticles and even fuses and I'm at a total stop. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can drive my MJ at night lol. Btw all gauges, i.e. fuel gauge, speedometer, low fuel light, battery light oil pressure, turn signal lighys and high beam lights work. Its only the connectors for the back lights.

    Turn signal problems

    Hey guys. Just bought an 87 MJ 2.5L standard and this thing has a few gremlins I'm trying to fix. The turn signals are my biggest concern. The hazards turn on but only if u have the headlights off. The front lower lights don't turn on at all but the side markers do as hazards. Break lights work, not sure on the rev lights as I'm replacing the bulb tomorrow and my dash cluster does not light up either. Anywhere I can start? Tyia.
