First post on here as I was just told about this forum on the book of faces.
Figured I would share my 1988 Jeep Comanche Build.
To start its called the Sidepiece because well I already have a one ton TJ on 40s that I've wheeled for years. The TJ is my true love but this one will be getting some attention.
I picked her up back in September of last year with some great pieces already in place:
5.3 LS out of a 2003 Chevy Tahoe
4l60e automatic transmission
241C Tcase out of an early 90s Chevy
Front axle is a 1979 Ford kind pin Dana 60 35 spline inner and outer shafts
Yukon selectable hubs
Rear axle is a Dana 70
Hydro assist brakes and steering
Fox reservoir front shocks
3 link suspension up front
Rear has leaf springs
40" Toyo MT tires
KMC Machete beadlock wheels
Hidden winch and low profile bumpers
Great platform but needed some love as the cooling was way under sized for the engine, wiring is a mess and a bunch of other items I won't get into now.
Coilovers front and rear
Rear double triangulated 4 link suspension
Custom shortened and dovetailed bed
Already picked up a 14 bolt rear axle for it with a spool and 5.38s
Patina paint job
and plenty of other goodies I am likely forgetting.
Next I just want to say that I have a friend who will be doing all the fab work so he deserved all the credit for how badass this Comanche will be.
Lastly I will be trying to document the build on my Youtube page so definitely come along for the ride and/or follow me on Instagram @ Tarantula_TJ.
Now that I typed this all up on the computer I will jump on my phone and post a bunch of photos....
