  1. Thanks everyone. Sorry for the disappearance I am not great at being active on forums. I do have some updates to share soon but curious if anyone knows if there are aftermarket gauge clusters sold for Mjs? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. What part of the country are you in? The body looked mostly rust free even before you got body work done. Looks great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Aiming for 6” of uptravel led to clearance issues that had to be addressed... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Next came the build progress starting in January of this year... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Then I had to start collecting parts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. First step was to clean up the interior and add a cluster then fix the cab corner... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 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 5.38 gears Detroit locker Artec truss Yukon selectable hubs Rear axle is a Dana 70 35 spline limited slip 5.38 gears Hydro assist brakes and steering Fox reservoir front shocks 3 link suspension up front Frame stiffeners Rear has leaf springs 40" Toyo MT tires KMC Machete beadlock wheels Mastercraft seats Hidden winch and low profile bumpers No bed 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. The Plan: Coilovers front and rear Rear double triangulated 4 link suspension Custom shortened and dovetailed bed functional tailgate tasteful exo-cage Atlas Tcase Already picked up a 14 bolt rear axle for it with a spool and 5.38s Fuel cell 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....
