Can Spell Comanche

Can Spell Comanche (2/10)

  1. Glad I saved the front axle for last. Having more then a little trouble getting some of it apart. The nut wouldn't come off the driver's side but came out whole. Broke a breaker bar with my over grown extension. Tried the 1/2 impact didn't move. Passenger side came out a little better. But I am going to have to get a new hub for it. The bolts weren't factory so it was off at some point. The seal press I purchased isn't the right size, but think I can use it with a socket that is the right size.
  2. The Rough Country sway bar disconnects are on. It looks backwards to me but for now is good. I looked at the color instructions on their website but that looks how they are showing it. I will wait to put the hanger on till I look at my neighbor's. See which side the top mount is supposed to go. Now to get this axle apart.
  3. Was able to get the list down to just having to put the sway bar back on and finish the axle disconnect. I have a one piece axle to put in. The bumper showed up, it is the same as on my Cherokee. I have towed the Cherokee behind the RV to FL, GA, TN, GA, NC, SC, MD and NJ to go wheeling in the pine barrens. The MJ and XJ are both setup to the tow the other home when needed. One old Jeep needs another to tow it home.
  4. I was able to aquire the cowl hood today. It is fiberglass, would have like the metal one but they are ghosts now a days.
  5. The angle on the pic must have been right on. There is some slack. Hopefully enough for it.
  6. The soft brake line is actually the vent for the rear. The stainless is a XJ for 6" lift. I deleted the weight sensor for the brakes. I am have been working on this for like 2 years. I am getting slower with age. I did find a fiber cowl hood for it. Hopefully have it this weekend. Haven't been able to catch up with the seller yet.
  7. The rear just needs the ebrake cables hooked up. Then tighten up all the bolts for the front axle and I should be ready for alignment and PA inspection. Which will allow me to get it back on the road once in a while . Also found a cowl hood that I hopefully will pick up this week.
  8. Still slowly moving along. I welded the rear spring perches and shock mounts in. Ran new brake lines for the dana 44 axle and an XJ extended brake line. Should only have to hookup the ebrake cables to finish up the rear. The Bilstein rear shocks should be here tomorrow. I will get another picture of the rear done up if I can get it finished up this weekend.
  9. Hello, I am working on my Comanche project and looking for gears. I have the original Dana 30 front and a Dana 44 rear from an XJ. Does anyone know if the master install kits from a TJ will work? It says for 26 splines but the information I find, i believe the dana 30 is 27 spline and the dana 44 is 30 spline. I am looking to do 4.56 gears in it. I found this one from Yukon on Quadratec Yukon Gear & Axle Front & Rear Ring and Pinion with Master Install kits for Jeep Wrangler TJ with Dana 30 Front / Dana 44 Rear | Quadratec

  11. Well after a little mishap I took a few months off from working on the Comanche. It ended up falling off the jack stands on me. It missed me but I ended up taking a break. So a week or two ago I started back up. So far I was able to get the front end back together. I also ordered and put on a Rugged Ridge steering for it. Here is were it is now.

  12. Something doesn't look right. I set the control arms at the length above from the chart. The axel looks to far back. I will have to look for another chart before I put the springs in. Sent from my FRD-L14 using Tapatalk
  13. Started on the front today. Having problems getting the brake line off. But putting on the core 4x4 control arms. I have a board lagged bolted into my garage to hook a rachet stap or come along. I would like to say this is for pulling the axel when I put on control arms. That is not what it started out as. I needed it to pull the Jeeps into the garage when I brought them home broke. Sent from my FRD-L14 using Tapatalk
  14. I decided to start putting on the lift today. I wanted to put on the rear first, but it is just a few turns past hand tight. Started on the front but didn't get far. I should be able to get the front done this week and weld up the rear end. I ordered some ruff stuff shock mounts for the rear. Didn't care for the ones that came in the spring perch kit.
