  1. Yeah I one and know where to get probably one or two more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’ll start with some background. My truck started with a single pane window which got shattered, so I installed a 4 pane window, then went to a 3 pane thinking I would like it more, well I think I want to go back factory. I’m going to install a single pane window in my truck (shooting for the week of March 16th). I figured I would offer up my 3 pane window. I’m asking $200 for the 3 pane window. Gasket not included as I’m using it when I install the single pane. If it doesn’t sell I will keep it in case something happens to the single pane window. Upstate, SC If you need more pictures of certain parts let me know. I’d like to have a buyer lined up when I pull it, but if not it will still be pulled that week.
  3. One is a Cherokee 8.25 that is under my Comanche, one is a d30 that is under a friends s10, one is a Toyota 4Runner rear axle that is under another friends 4Runner, one is a Toyota 4Runner rear axle under a Toyota pickup I got for a guy on marketplace, one was bent, but I cut it out and the 3rd ended up in my buddy’s 4th gen 4Runner when he blew his up.

  4. Lucky for me every yard has allowed a reciprocating saw and I don’t own a cordless grinder so I’ve been fine so far! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Unfortunately big yards won’t let you have grinders, but still allow reciprocating saws. At least around here is what I’ve noticed. I guess sparks are an issue or something. Anywho, I have cut many axles out. So much easier than trying to undo rusty or hard to get to bolts. Recently I switched from ryobi to dewalt. The deciding factor for me was the 1/2 impact. The dewalt 1/2 impact has so much more power than the ryobi does and I didn’t want 2 sets of batteries and chargers so I sold off my ryobi stuff and bought a dewalt 4 piece xr kit. I love tools of all kinds and could probably talk all day about what tools I do and don’t like and what’s worked best when. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah it was cheaper to buy the calipers from the junkyard and use them as cores than to just pay the core charge when I did my swap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Well I had noticed a clunk and I had my girlfriend rock the wheel back and forth and the TRE on the trackbar is bad. No big deal, easy fix. Well I feel up on the back side and the nut is about rusted off so this is going to turn into a fun project. I can’t seem to find the track bar bracket online so I guess I’ll have to pull one from a junkyard or some how get the rusted nub off the top. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Ordered parts not really thinking and I have most of a 95 Cherokee AC system because I converted to r134a when I did the motor swap. Well I decided to order an evaporator core and expansion valve for a 95 so I could finish it off. Now I’m starting to wonder if it will fit in my hvac box or if I’ll need to get one out of a 95 or if this whole thing isn’t going to work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Well the heater core started leaking so that’s enjoyable. I also feel a little silly. I have noticed a lot of my Comanche seemed to not have any fuses. Well all that mess of wire under the starter relay is actually a lot of fusible links. I think this summer I’ll probably swap in a late model Comanche fuse box and wire all that up to it and make it a lot cleaner/ nicer looking. The hard part is finding out what the equivalent fuse for each link. Also, since putting it all back together she’s been starting flawlessly. There is a lot of wiring in this truck that seems it could be improved/fixed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’ve found one set of Cherokee tow hooks in all my years of looking. Been to every yard I know of around here. Also, how much do you charge for storage haha I’d love to have room to pull stuff I don’t need. I guess I’d need some spare change to spend on it as well. Oh that’s right and time to go pull it. Oh well I’m still happy wandering around and grabbing small things that I find cool or interesting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks for ruining the fun buzz kill.. just kidding, I guess I can grab 4 doors of handles and give two Comanches a lovely set of handles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I guess I can go take these handles off and find out if they’re the same or not. I like doing science experiments. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. This is a yard that is small and they keep things for at least a few months before they get gone, maybe more Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have also found some that seem to be in good condition. I didn’t pull them as I didn’t know if anyone would want them and I don’t like having a heap of parts around. If there’s interest I can pull them next time in at that yard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I seem to remember buying a whole pre bled system for fairly cheap. Came with the master, line and slave and just bolted right in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Found some very nice chrome handles if anyone wants some, and this cool grill on a car. Actually metal slats.
  17. The Comanche motor with a mild cam and just the “best” of the 4.0 combo (HO head, renix block, 99+ intake). The goal was a little kick, but still super simple and super reliable. I would recommend that, I don’t know if I’d recommend a stroker yet. Still up in the air on that. I used the comp cam SK68-115-4 kit in my Comanche and I’ve had 10,000 trouble free miles (at least cam related, had some Renix electrical stuff but that’s to be expected).

  18. I had the machine work done at Dover cylinder head and I put it together. Used the clegg stage 1 stroker with stage 1 cam. I’m not super thrilled with the performance. There’s definitely more power, but I feel like there’s something that’s not quite right. Everyone says their strokers scream and make tons of power and mine seems marginally better than the 4.0 with a blown headgasket and 200k. My Comanche has a HO head, 99+ intake, volvo injectors, and comp cam and it seems like it boogies a whole lot better. It’s also comparing apples to oranges since my Cherokee is lifted, 35s, cage, auto, and weighs 4800 lbs and my Comanche is 2wd stick shift stock height street tires.

  19. His prices are all over the place some things he wants pennies on the dollar for, some things he wants an arm and a leg for. I’m someone who is going Saturday if you want me to have them ask or pull it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. The big issue for me is only having an apartment. I have no where to put things. If someone wanted it I’d have no problem pulling it and hanging onto it for a week or something, but I can’t just pull all the cool stuff I see Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. This here is an interesting thing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. If someone gives me an early 231 I’ll gladly take it apart. I just don’t have any transfer cases older than 1999. If this was a 1999 I would feel very confident saying throw it in neutral and tow it. I guess one could study the exploded diagrams of the 2 cases. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I kept the fly wheel when I did my clutch because it looked fine, but every once in a while it’ll do the shudder thing, but I usually can drive out of the shudder. Now that I’m thinking about it I’m not really sure how I get it to stop shuddering it’s just a muscle memory type thing. I know my clutch still has tons of life left so I just live with it. 95% of the time it doesn’t do it and the 5% of the time it does it is usually reverse so maybe when I have free time and spending money I’ll replace the flywheel, clutch and pressure plate, but till then I’ll just keep rocking it.

  24. I didn’t read every post in this, but figured I would share my ax-15 swap experience. I got the ax-15 and crossmember together. The bellhousing I took off of an nv3550. I used the second set of holes, kept the plate in the floor the same, and my ba-10 driveshaft worked. I ran into no clearance issues anywhere. If you didn’t swap the pilot bearing out and the input shaft isn’t being supported it will wear out the front bearing and/or break. 1975 cj 5 304 3 spd Pilot bushing is the correct inner and outer diameter to work with an ax-15 input shaft and fit in a 4.0 crankshaft. I’ve heard rumor of 2wd Cherokee rear driveshafts working for 4wd Comanches, but don’t take that as 100% fact. Honestly I guess I just had dumb luck with everything in mine working out like it did.

  25. I have not taken apart an early style 231, but as far as I know the lubrication system has not changed in them through the years. The tcase has a pump in it. The pump is driven off the output shaft which means if the rear driveshaft is connected and spinning the tcase is being oiled. If I were to flat tow my Jeep with a 231 tcase I would pop the tcase in neutral, trans in park and not think twice about it for any distance because as far as I’m aware it’s no different than if the Jeep were driving since it’s being oiled. That is my opinion on the matter and I might be wrong, but that’s how I would do it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
