  1. I'm basically taking a really good 89 Eliminator back to showroom look. No mods what so ever. 2500 paint job and about 1500 more in various small stuff. I've done a 99 Suburban. You can blow thru your 6k budget real fast and still not get much. With that one I have close to 5 grand just in the engine and exhaust. Never did paint it but that was another 3k. I bought that for 3k and sold it for 3k. In the end it's a 30 year old truck not a 68 GTO or 57 Belair. Market is small. Yours does look like a solid 4k as she sits. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  2. Well I just paid 150 bucks for a set of those rims. You can probably part it out and get your money back depending interior and driveline condition. Maybe a little bit more??? 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  3. If you haven't obtained them already contact Watson and Sons Jeep Salvage in Pinetown, NC. Look them up on Facebook as that's his only web presence. He had a drawer full of them last week for all year models as well as the JEEP and 4X4 badging. Prices are good and he ships everywhere. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original

  6. Mine is an 89 model. If you zoom in you can see the wire connector is a single wire. It's grounded to the hood thru a mounting bolt. It's just a connector. Any type of connector would work. Or you can Straight wire it. You can ground to any bolt on the vehicle. Getting either version to work is easy. Find a power source, even the battery if you wish. Ground it anywhere to the chassis. I'm a new owner myself. I'm finding out that the 89 year model made a lot of changes as Chrysler brought the Jeep lineup into their supply and logistics chain. 89 Comanche Eliminator
  7. How the word rivet get auto corrected to driver? 89 Comanche Eliminator
  8. My Comanche. Just a set of screws hold it on. Not sure if it's a driver or just a hole that was threaded...pugs into an existing connection that increased up behind the coolant resevoir. If not there it's just 2 wires. I'm sure it would be easy give it a power source up and plug in it as needed. The original owner if mine kept it unplugged as the wire got hung up on stuff. I rerouted it. 89 Comanche Eliminator
  9. I'm going to qualify this by saying I'm only seeing the pictures on a cellphone and not very well at that. But it looks like all you have to do is cut the welds. I wouldn't use a grinding wheel. Use a cutting wheel on either a 4 inch angle grinder or an air grinder. You'll get a cleaner thinner cut as opposed to grinding it off and should take less time. Down side is the amount of cutting wheels you'll need. But you'll save more metal if needed. And you can generally control the cutting action better than a grinder. But either way if that frame is good cut that bed off and put another on there. I know where there a text short beds and one long bed in eastern NC right now. Save that truck, don't trash it. These things are getting harder and harder to find. 89 Comanche Eliminator
  10. There is one other one in my area. A black and yellow one. I've seen it twice since I bought mine 2 months ago, but have no idea who owns it. I was told there was a green one recently but the owner passed away a little over a year ago and it disappeared shortly after. 89 Comanche Eliminator
  11. Sounds like I can't help you. And may have made a mistake as mine is an 89 model. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
  12. Well I may have paid 20 bucks for something I can't use. Do you know if the volt meter leads will match up to the circuit card? I haven't taken mine off yet to see what the back looks like Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
  13. Had 89 written on the windshield. Doesn't mean it was Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
  14. I'm not very knowledgeable about all the differences, but I pulled this out of an 89 Cherokee a few days ago. Just to compare the pictures. I pulled the whole cluster but all I really wanted was the volt meter. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
