  1. In case you missed it (see the top of the page in the for sale section) - forum rules specifically state that sellers have to post prices for items. The intent is to not have the situation that is unfolding here with no prices posted and everybody wondering what the seller’s price is…
  2. What is your price on the tail lights?
  3. I was at this XJ today and I finally opened up the hood. This thing was plumbed into the brake system. “Caution - High Pressure Vessel” Anyone ever seen this, know what it is?
  4. Doesn’t look like a ‘91 to me. Lots of renix era items there that I’m seeing…

    College Vehicle

    What are you looking to do at college with your vehicle? The answer here really will help you make the decision going forward. Cheap Honda is a solid choice for getting to/from daily. Good gas mileage, cheap parts for repairs, etc. Cruise control is also a big advantage for the long drive. MJ or Eagle are vehicles to do things with/enjoy while you are at college. If that’s what you are after then it’s an easy choice. Also remember that college brings a whole new group of unknowns that you’ve likely not seen yet. This includes where and how you store your vehicle. Make sure you have a vehicle that you can park any place for days on end and not worry about how secure it is. That said - I enjoyed my college experience with my MJ. I walked to campus each day and I had a garage to secure it in through the week. I drove it every weekend and had all of the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan as my playground. As a college kid with little budget, I paid at the pump to drive it 8 hours one way each time I went home. It was also not the most comfortable choice for a long drive. I was very confident with it as I had done plenty of work on it prior to college and while I lived with my folks during the summers. I did have some things that I needed to do at college and I made friends that I still have today from wrenching. Lots of good memories.

    Continuing to work this truck into pieces…
  7. 500 MJ


    I helped my Dad work on the truck a bit yesterday for a brief few hours while I was home. Here are the promised photos. With the frame non-existent in places, it is pretty easy to see why the truck if being parted out. Pretty much all of the 4 cyl specific parts are up for grabs, if anyone needs anything just speak up!

    What country are they coming from?
  9. Freshly hit the yard today. 1986 MJ with CC Decal on the back window! https://www.lkqpickyourpart.com/locations/LKQ_Pick_Your_Part_-_Chicago-581/recents/1986-jeep-comanche/
  10. Was there a black seat cover on it that lost its darker color onto the lighter tan underneath? I could see that dyeing the tan a darker tone…

    My Dad ( @Swampthing ) just picked this truck up for parts. It has a snowplow that comes with it. It is a 4wd 4 cyl truck with no transmission. It’s rusty. More pictures to come soon once I see the truck in person.

    The junkyard/wrecker is an easy phone number for them to find. The longer you wait the closer they get to dialing it Cash talks. It’s a super fast and easy way to convince someone you are for real and help them forget of how their “Uncle’s Wife’s Kid was going to get it running again, someday.” Make sure you have cash with you when you swing by. If that can’t make it work out, it wasn’t meant to be.

    Snatch Blocks

    Looking to use them to help move around hardwood logs for the sawmill, so we are talking “vehicle scale” for ratings… Never heard of a snatch ring. I checked it out. Seems it might have its place for lesser loads than you’d want to use a snatch block for? Also seems a bit cumbersome with tying knots all the time. I like knots, I just prefer the ease of shackles and clevises, especially when loading them up with big loads.

    Snatch Blocks

    Looking to buy a couple nice quality, long lived, snatch blocks for an upcoming project and then cascade them into the towing/recovery equipment bag for the Jeep. Any recommendations?
  15. Should be an ‘89 XJ. I didn’t have time to get a good look underneath (and the gas tank/weeds were in the way. I am wondering if it has a D44 Rear end? Very well optioned and it has a 242 tcase. Located at Team Kirchhayn / APR - Fredonia WI.
  16. Yes - ONLY if he’s game for it. shoot me a PM and we can work out the payment stuff.

    IMG_2724.MOV Interior of the truck is completely removed except for the dash. The floors were nonexistent after the carpet was taken out. The bench seat brackets were goners as well. Everything else was cleaned up and sold/stored. Both aftermarket bumpers removed. Front fenders removed and scrapped. Both doors removed and sold. Over the last two days the bed has been cut off in many small chunks as there was not enough structure remaining to remove it in one piece. Gas tank was totally rotten but the fuel pump was in amazingly decent shape. Rear window also cut out and cleaned/stored. I have some plans for the front and rear chunks of the bed, might take a few years for them to materialize but I saved them nonetheless. Getting the transmission and transfer case with driveshafts out next. Leaving engine on chassis carcass for moving it around until I have a place to pluck it out and keep it indoors. The hood is protecting it for now, TB and exhaust manifold sealed off from the elements.
  18. I’ll go for the pass door and both front fenders if you are serious about this @Pete M. Make it easy on you to just bring them all to one place. No rush for me, I have plans for them but they will all be shelved for future use when those plans materialize.
  19. Nice trailer at a nice price. eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Jeep-Comanche-Trailer-/304105808714?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0
  20. Dad nabbed the Driver's side, said the Passenger side had issues/damage.
  21. My Dad stopped by LKQ today and nabbed some baby blue interior parts for his ‘87 MJ. Took these photos of the current state of this truck… So how does a HOOD rot through that badly?!?!
