  1. I’m about to pick up new wheels for my MJ, however I’m going to need to put new tires on them. The wheels are originally from a YJ, and I was curious if the back spacing would be different or I would find other problems throwing them into a stock MJ with smaller tires. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/wto/d/lakewood-jeep-wheels-tj-yj-xj/6837198189.html those are the wheels I’m looking at buying. Any feedback helps, you guys are always super helpful! Thanks in advance!
  2. This was really helpful. Thank you!
  3. This brings up another question, differential fluid. What type of fluid should I put in, and do I really need to change it? Also if anyone has any general maintenance tips I would greatly appreciate it. thanks all for the responses!
  4. Some of you may know, I just bought my Comanche. I finally have some time to take it into the shop and work on it. I have some questions about what fluids I should put in, and what other basic stuff I should check out. I'm a rather novice mechanic, the most complicated thing I’ve ever done was change some disc brakes which is basically undoing a few bolts. Ive done some research and saw the MJ calls for 10w30 or 10w40. I have no clue wether to put synthetic or conventional oil in. If anyone has some basic tips, and I mean pretty darn basic, I would greatly appreciate it. I don’t want to mess up a rust free MJ. Thanks in advance.
  5. Can you post a picture? I like the look of the bench better than the buckets and that may be something I’m interested in. The driver side seat on my truck has a small tear in it, which is extremely disappointing.
  6. It’s an automatic. Here’s some interior photos.
  7. USMC, Camp Pendleton, CA I ended up getting the truck. So far the only major mods I plan on doing is repainting it (I’m probably gonna spend more on the paint than on the truck itself, go figure) and redoing the interior. The headliner is non existent, and I would like a bench seat rather than the two seats it has. I would also like to put some of the old gold Jeep lattice wheels on it. It needs some TLC, like a windshield, tires, and some electrical work. I should clairify that I do NOT intend on taking this over rocks. I’m just generally naive about anything car related. My father is available for guidance plus a couple of friends of mine don’t mind showing me the ropes. here’s some pictures.
  8. Thank you for that website, that’s awesome. Looks like I’m going to be busy. I say restore, but the more I think about it, I probably mean build it up. I plan on DT swapping it, so I can take it home to Michigan and be able to fare well in the snow. And if I’m gonna put 4WD on it, might as well get some off road tires... I’m sure you all know how it goes.
  9. Truck has had 2 other owners and has been in California all its life.
  10. Haha I’ll assume the pun was intended. Another point you brought up, what is synchronizer crashing?
  11. I was pointed in the direction of this community from reddit when I asked about buying an MJ.. the current vic I’m looking at is an 87’ with 137k miles, asking $3200, I’ve talked him down to $2800. He won’t go lower. It has the IL6, 4.0L, and I’m unsure of the transmission. I know it is 2WD. It needs some new parts, mainly cosmetic; a new wind shield, new head light, new tail light, a new paint job, new tires. I’ve attached a photo. I took it for for a test drive and I got it up to speed and it did not have the wobbles on the freeway. I am extremly novice at buying vehicles, this is going to be my first vehicle purchase. I drove my Father’s XJ when I was in high school, but I’ve since moved across the country, by order of Uncle Sam. I’m trying to restore it and use it as a daily driver. Is that a feasible goal? I absolutely love the MJ body style, and I would like to get this vehicle, but I don’t want to get something that is going to give me more problems than it’s worth. I’m not the most mechanically inclined as of now but I am extremely willing to learn and I was hoping this would be a good starting point. I do have friends who would be willing to help me with some of the bigger projects as well. Any information, any guidance, or even a, “get lost kid,” would be extremely helpful and appreciated. Thanks in advance!
