  1. Cherokee has slowly been stripped and this weekend will be the engine/trans/t-case removal. Have a local jee guy coming to help cut the Jeep up so he can get some parts for his help.

  2. Starting the 97+ power train swap. Throwing in a Chrysler 8.25 rear, D30 front (just keeping the XJs stock axles until I get the coin to throw into bigger axles, tires etc), stock 2000 XJ 4.0L, auto trans, np231 T-case with SYE, plus the dash and all electronics/accessories. Let the long nights filled with cussing and beer begin! Wish me luck

  3. The winter months were productive for the Comanche. I finished ordering some much needed parts, installed/repaired a few major components, and also reorganized some extra parts I had cluttering up the garage 😬. Bought some Gray Pioneer seats, ordered new seat brackets from Brandon Scarbrough, dash repaint still in work, still trying to fix my power steering issues (foaming fluid which is air in the system). 

     

    So so close to being roadworthy but yet so much more to do.

  4. PM sent as well as a donation Thank you, Pete
  5. 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.

  6. 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!
  7. 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?
  8. Changing out seats and ripping out interior is a PITA

  10. 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!

  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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?
