Can Spell Comanche

Can Spell Comanche (2/10)

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Thanks!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 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
  5. Got the second coat put on last night! Couldn't be happier with how it all turned out!
  6. 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!

  7. Suspension, rear axle and exhaust yanked. Painting the frame this weekend. One of my leafsprings was cracked, which sucks. I took them to a spring shop and the old timer there pulled them apart and they had a bunch of stress cracks, so I ordered a new set with a 2” taller arch, so I’m pretty pumped about that! Should have them on Tuesday!
  8. Got everything rear of the cab sandblasted today. Easily saved me a week with a grinder and it seemed like a bargain to me. Next step is to get primer on it and get it coated this weekend!
  9. I've gotten a little bit of work done since my last post! In this first video, I got a bunch of work done on the rusty driver's side outer rocker panel. Next, I picked up a bed in better condition and got the underside of it all cleaned up and ready to be put on the truck. And most recently, a quick project to save a few bucks and salvage the fuel tank straps. Having a ton of fun with this project! Hopefully you enjoy following along!
  10. Kind of what I figured. Thanks!
  11. These things worth anything? Came with the Comanche but I don’t need it. Very heady duty bed mat made by Bodyguard. I've searched and learned that there were some AMC and Jeep branded bet mats, so I'm assuming this one wasn’t a factory option, right?
