  1. Shocks

    I want to updgrade my shocks to something better. Wanted to see if other owners prefer a certain brand or see which ones I need to stay away from. Plans for my truck is some highway mostly back roads and occasionally minor off roading.My rear sits at stock height and the front sits 1 higher than stock with coil spring spacers in. The ones I am looking at are the rough country N2.0 shocks.
  2. lift kit

    I decided to not to do the lift kit instead I went for coil spring spacers to do about 1” lift in the front. Also I change my mind about the combo because you can buy just the wheels now.
  3. Control arms, axle leak

    Thank you, HOrnbrod. Being new I did not realize WJ had the same length control arms. Axle is now out on jack stands waiting on paint to dry. Cleaned it then POR-15 so It will be several hours to dry. Interesting on the tool. I had a similar Idea went to lowes this morning bought a piece of 1/2 threaded rod and was gonna use a large socket (where you have pipe) to pull the seal in place.
  4. Control arms, axle leak

    Started to do a brake job on the front Dana 30 in my 1988 Comanche. Oil leak on passenger side. Took axle a part to replace the seal next to the CAD. Any advice on installing the new seal? Bought both seals figured to replace both since I am in this deep into the axle. Also probably need to do control arm bushings. Can I do these with a large vise or C- clamps or is this a job for a shop press? Also if I take the control arms out I thought about welding a plate to the bottom to box in the control arms. Would this be worth doing if I had the bushings out?
  5. Cracking up...along with my inner fenders!

    Installed replacements from Summit Racing. They were made in Taiwan also. Passenger side has gap same as picture above. The driver's side is worse liner does not fit well at all. The rear holes for the pins are close but the front are way off.
  6. lift kit

    Well i was tossing around the idea of lifting it. I at point in my rebuild of it that it would be smarter and cheaper to get a lift kit now than later due to need of replacing shocks, brushing and etc. Just was trying to see if there was a reasonable price kit that anyone would recommend.

    The paint is amazing , love the blue metallic. Front bumper fits like a glove for this build. Also overall the truck look like a brand new truck not a junk rust bucket when you first bought it. Thumbs up for making a forgotten mj to one you turn your head to see the amazing beautiful mj.

    100% on board people need to realize they can cause a major fire real fast happen in the smokies last year. Couple of teens lit a couple small fires and turn into hell for a lot of people and kill some. Pray for everyone going though the wildfires and recent hurricanes.
