Comanche Aficionado

Comanche Aficionado (4/10)

  1. Nope. Never figured it out. It just decided to come and go and hasn’t done it since. My fuel trim is still absolutely screwed, but I haven’t been able to figure that out. It runs well enough that I’ve decided to not look the gift horse in the mouth. 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  2. Most likely as a daily while I overhaul the comanche. I’m also in Cali, so that kinda limits what can be done while also keeping it legal. If I could put a big ol engine in it and run it with no care for smog, then that’d be the plan. 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  3. Found this FB on Facebook marketplace for 900 bucks. I know the 80’s are absolutely dogs, but I’ve always liked the angular body style. What’s your guy’s opinions on this? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3894711847321664/
  4. Pretty nice looking, but from what I’ve heard it’s kind of a polished turd. 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  5. Are you guys sure about that? Not trying to be dismissive, but I’m gonna be using mostly for driving around town and some highway for college. I just want to try and get a good combo of gas mileage and power, especially with how gas is almost 5 bucks around here right now. 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  6. I’m planning on running 31s, but it’s mostly gonna be an in town/daily driver. I thought about 4.10s but I figured they’re too low for what I needed. 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  7. I’m looking for a 3.73 ring and pinion for the front Dana 30, but it seems like almost no one makes them or they’ll cost an arm and a leg to get. Anyone have any idea where to find one for relatively cheap?
  8. For the breather tube hole in the 44, is it possible to thread it and put a nipple on or is there a specific type of breather nozzle that can go on there? 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  9. And now yet another question for the D44! Disc brakes: which swap should I do? I know the Ford Explorer swap is a popular and easy one, but I plan on running the stock alloy wheels and have heard there is a potential for rubbing with the Ford swap. So would the ZJ swap be better for different caliper placement or would that leave me in the same predicament? 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  10. After getting my D44 and my 30, I’ve come to realize an air impact gun is a little difficult to lug around. Now I’m looking at some electrical ones and I want to know what your guy’s personal choices are. What have you guys had luck with? 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  11. Good to know. I thought the seals wouldn’t need anything super special, but I figured if I needed to do bearings I could leave the pinion one alone if it’s still good because of the whole resetting the gears issue. On the carrier itself and the axles, it wouldn’t be too bad because I already have an old hydraulic press from my grandfather. But I didn’t know if redoing bearings on something like the carrier would require me to re-shim it with new shims. Both of these axles have been sitting for the past 10 years doing nothing, so they may not be so bad (except for the ugly surface rust). And speaking of that rust, how should I go about dealing with it? I have a sandblaster, so could I just blast the rust away first, paint, and then redo seals? 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  12. So in order to be able to use this axle, I’d want to “refurbish” it. But is it doable? As in, replacing the seals and most bearings that I could reach, but leaving the pinion bearing alone. I don’t want to just slap this and the D30 under my truck as-is, but I’m not sure where to start to actually clean it up and paint it. 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  13. I’d want a limited slip just because it’d be nice to have, but I know that an open diff isn’t going to be all that bad either. For now, the plan is to just rebuild both axles with new brake systems and seals, and finish off the rest of the 4wd system (I’m missing the transfer case and the front drive shaft). After that, we’d get it all mounted up and eventually put in some expensive components depending on what I want to do with it in the future. 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  14. Alright, yet another question I want to push past you guys. What about the Rodeo/Passport 44? Would the carrier inside that work with an mj/xj 44? And what about the disc brakes off a passport/rodeo - has anyone just looked to see if they’re compatible with the mj/xj 44? 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
  15. So regear and limited slip may be out from what I’m planning, but what about general rebuilds, like kits for the 44 and the 30? Any specific brands to stick with? 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 Liter w/ AW4 2WD
