Can Spell Comanche

Can Spell Comanche (2/10)

  1. The seat back is really nice. Seat cushion has a pretty big tear in it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Haha I hear ya. That’s why I went too! Considered pulling the blue dash. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yup mine too. Hudsonville here! What are you looking for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. LKQ in Grand Rapids. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Ha I kinda like it too. Unfortunately, it looks decent from the outside but it's completely rotting away, just like the rest of the truck. The portion that attaches to the bed rail was so rusted, I was able to pull up on it and the bolts holding it to the bed just ripped right through it.
  6. NOT MY TRUCK. FOUND IN A JUNKYARD. Images below. Year, Make, Model: 1987 Jeep Comanche Engine / Trans / Transfercase / Front axle / Rear axle / Wheelbase: 2.5, manual trans, 2WD short bed Build date: (its on the driverside door sticker, in the form of month and year) Current Location: Michigan Status: In the junkyard Notes: 2WD, white exterior with "Sport truck" graphics, blue interior with bench seat. Not a usable body panel on it. The hood is even rusted through! Current owner: I am not the owner. It's in a junkyard near me.
  7. I ordered them through a local spring shop in town. They're a stock replacement, but with a 2" taller arch. When they arrived, the label on them said "Stanley Spring 97-555." I googled that and that's the same part number as the springs available from General Spring, so I'm not sure if they're all made by the same company and just rebranded, but wouldn't be surprised.
  8. A little more progress over the last few weeks! New leaf springs are in, rear axle is back under it and new brakes on. Plus, I found a great deal locally on some Rubicon wheels and tires, as well as a Fabtech spare tire mount for the bed! Slowly but surely coming together.
  9. I appreciate the kind words. Trust me, though. I'm super impatient! Just trying to knock out little things here and there in the little time I have to work on it. I figure that if I can do the whole back end of the truck, that's an entire half of the truck I don't have to worry about anymore!
  10. Thanks!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. 4wd eventually I’m sure. Just looking to get it drivable first. I’ll keep my eye out for conversion stuff though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Got the second coat put on last night! Couldn't be happier with how it all turned out!
  13. Frame primed and painted with Tractor, Truck and Implement Paint from Tractor Supply, sprayed through an HVLP gun. It’s an oil based enamel which I have read great things about so hopefully I never have to worry about rust! And since I had the rear axle blasted as well, I’m painting it too. It’s just in primer right now but will receive the same black paint as the frame today or tomorrow. New springs come Tuesday and it will hopefully be rolling again by next weekend!
