  1. Thanks for the tips on the speedo and tcase linkage.
  2. Didn't think about that. That's exactly the type of gotcha info I needed. I'd assume that I'd need the RENIX style TV cables. Should be easy enough to figure out when both tranny's are out next to each other. Looks like the NSS is the same for '88-'96 so I should be in luck. Will look at both plugs later tonight.
  3. That link is money. Exactly what I needed to know. Thank you.
  4. ***DISCLAIMER*** Before I get flamed for asking a question, I have done a general search of all sections and looked through all 19 pages of the DIY section and can't find what I'm looking for. Closest thing I could find was an '88 Eliminator 2.5 manual 4*4 conversion, but that just links back to the index page and does me no good. Maybe I'm using the wrong terms? If so I apologize, please point me to the right link. ***DISCLAIMER*** I have a '88 Eliminator 4.0 AW4 2wd (no lift or suspension mods). I'm trying to convert it to 4 wd. I have a running '92 Cherokee 4.0 AW4 4 wd (242 transfer case, also no suspension mods). The plan is to take the AW4 and 242 out of the Cherokee and bolt it up to the 4.0 (RENIX) in the Comanche. Not interested in using the 4.0 HO engine, my 4.0 RENIX is running strong 😁 I already have a AW4 in the Comanche so it should be the correct crossmember. I understand it'll need a new longer speedo cable and I may have some problems with the 4*4 shifter (read Novak cable shifter has issues). The front drive shaft should be fine, but I'll need a new rear drive shaft. Is it really as simple as bolting up the new tranny and transfer case to my engine? The front axle should be a piece of cake. Looks like a straight one for one swap. Only issue may be the flex brake lines to the newer calipers. The whole thing looks pretty simple. Am I missing something? Trying to make sure I have all of the parts before tearing into anything. Nothing like running into a surprise on Sunday night when your truck is scattered in parts across the garage floor 😂
  5. Has the filter ever been changed? Don't laugh, alot of people just drain the fluid and refill without ever actually changing the filter. The filter and gasket are pretty cheap, it's the 9 qts of tranny fluid that gets expensive. If you're going to drop the pan and change the filter, go ahead and replace the solenoids at the same time. They come in a 3 pack with upgraded grounds. Made my '88 shift smooth as silk.
  6. Found a solution to the sun visor clips. Ordered a new set of 93 -98 Jeep Grand Cherokee sun visor clips off of eBay for less than $20 delivered. They are an 1/8" wider and 1/8" shorter than Comanche clips and you'll have to cut the back plastic prong flush. Took less than 10 mins to modify and install both clips. Not a perfect fit but definitely functional and don't require any mod to the truck/mounting plate. They'll keep my sun visors from flopping around until I'm lucky enough to stumble across that gray factory Comanche sunvisor clip unicorn in the junk yard. 😁
  7. Thank you. Didn't realize there was an option for overhead console, mine doesn't have one. Just thinking, but if there's an over console option I'd assume it would be the same one the XJ Cherokees use. If that's the case it may be possible for me to get my hands on an entire overhead console and sun visors assembly. Has anyone done this or know if the XJ Cherokee overhead consoles and sunvisors are compatible?
  8. Of course there's two different sizes, why would that be standardized? Lol Been striking out on eBay for the clip, but I'll keep trolling. One has to pop up at a decent price sooner or later. If the sun visors are salvageable I'll hit up the headliner guy. At least it would match the headliner.
  9. My sun visors are shot. Not only is the covering bad, but they must have gotten wet at some point. The backing (fiber board?) Is broken in several spots, warped and expanded/coming apart (like fiber board soaked in water). I'm planning on getting the headliner redone and would like new or good sun visors too. Basically the only thing salvageable is the mounting bracket and metal rod. Is something in that shape rebuildable? Or does anyone have a source for sun visors? Also, the driver's side retaining clip is broke. Anyone know where to get one of those?
  10. Going to do the oil pan and rear main in mine in a month or so. I know it's only been a month, but did the carbon paper and Apex seal fix the leak?
  11. I've replaced 2 windshields in a '96 Cherokee and 1 in an '88 Comanche all within the last year. They run $250 each, installed in the middle Georgia area. Not sure what the prices are like in different parts of the country.
  12. Might not be the cause of the over heat, but a clogged heater core definitely won't help. Easy to clear the heater core. Just pop the lines off of it where it goes through the firewall. With low pressure water hose, alternate between the top and bottom tubes until it runs clear (might take multiple times and let it run for a few minutes).
  13. Glad it worked out well for you. I finally got around to doing Cruser's distributor index. My distributor was way off. Strangely it didn't make any difference performance wise, my 0 - 60 times are still the same. My knock sensor went way down (previous 30-50, current 0 - 5) so I assume that means the engine is timed much better now. I'm guessing the ECU was doing a pretty good job of correcting the advance and the MSD multi spark and super coil were making up for the bad factory timing. Lol
  14. Looks super clean. I wish the paint and body was in that good of shape on mine.
