  1. Selling my comanche project. 100% bottom dollar is $1600. Almost all parts there to complete. CL Ad: I recommend you use the contact method in that ad to get a hold of me. I check here occasionally but that is faster. https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/cto/d/san-antonio-jeep-comanche-engine-swap/6785545725.html Build Thread:

    The EAS build "Lucy"

    My 89 had that same pretty blue color. Debating it on my 1990 (that or sand...).

    Anyway, I have all of the brake parts in to finish the WJ front end swap. However, I also have a line on a full engine dropout from a 2011 Regal GS in preparation of an engine swap. If I get motivated enough I may start over Christmas!

    Changed the master cylinder/brake booster to a WJ one. Somehow I messed up the distance for the brake light switch so I bought one for a 1980 C10 and built a bracket that bolted to the brake booster bolts on the firewall.
  12. Being that I have actually started working on my project Comanche I needed to start documenting it. This is my 4th Jeep and 2nd Comanche. I expect this build to be somewhat slow but extremely extensive. This will not be an offroad build per-se but I am planning some interesting stuff. Specs: 1990 Comanche Eliminator All factory skids AX-15 4x4 3.07s and open D35 rear 235/75/15s on TJ wheels In progress projects: WJ Brake booster WJ Knuckles and Front Brakes WJ Steering (UTK shortened factory tie rods) Minor Plans: Rust repair (floorboards and windshield frame) Vinyl flooring in cab Paint Job New window seals Fix rear bumper and tailgate (minor fender bender) Major Plans: 97+ Front clip Ford 8.8 LSD with discs out back (Gearing TBD) GM 2.0L Turbo LHU engine swap (This WILL happen, hopefully in 2017) First day home, Tires were super dry-rotted. Last registered 2013 Interior is decent. Needs minor work. New tires/rims. Probably temporary but they were cheap and allowed me to actually drive it. Seafoam treatment... Motor was missing. Seafoam treatment fixed that. And my old truck just for good measure. I really miss that thing. College tuition stole it from me.
