  1. I wanted to give everyone here a late heads up that Sunbust, the All Mopar car show and Swap Meet will be on the 16th and 17th of this month. We have a 1980 and newer show on Saturday the 16th, and we have a Jeep only class. If you want to come out, we only have one Jeep pre registered as of today, Pre registration is $15, but closes on monday, day of registration is $20. you can register online at www.moparsunimited.org Chris
  2. Ok, I see that it leaks under the pedals. What now. I have the same issue, and have been fighting this for three years now. RTV, nope, silicone, nope, hell even some infomertial crap, STILL LEAKS. I am getting tired of having a wet floor. DO I NEED TO WELD THIS SHUT???
  3. This year, the 1990/99 Comanche would have to be put into the Truck Modified class. We will have a few games for kids, as well as a free poker walk, music, good food vendor and a swap meet. I look forward to hopefully seeing it out there
  4. I thank you guys for the great info, this forum has helped me out very much on my Jeep so far. I am an avid Mopar fan, both Modern and classic. My list of rigs includes... 1964 Plymouth Valiant 1965 Dodge Polara 1967 Plymouth Satellite 1986 HD Sportster 1987 Jeep Comanche W/ 5.2 V8 1993 Dodge Ram W250 Diesel 2000 Dodge Dakota R/T 2009 Challenger T/A 2011 Challenger SE I work on all of them, and love them all. I also am a member of Mopars Unlimited, Tacoma which hosts an annual all Mopar Show. Ok, here is the info for the All Mopar show in Frontier Park in Graham, WA on AUGUST 18th. http://moparsunlimited.org/sunbust/ This year we have a great new food vendor, and a new dealership sponsor, Tacoma Dodge. They will have their parts department out there and a few feature SRT cars. We also will have other great vendors, to include Rocket Restorations and many more. Laysons Restorations has once again jumped on board as a sponsor as well. This will be the last year for us to have a one day show. Next year we will have a two day show with Saturday being reserved for 1980 and Newer Mopars, and Sunday still staying a classic Mopar show (1979 and older) this will give our show the opportunity to bring in more vendors and swap meet parts to help people complete their projects. This also gives us the opportunity to have a few truck and Jeep only classes if there is enough support. The success and support of the expansion depends on great Mopar owners like everyone on this forum. We look forward to seeing you out there.

    I want to get out there in my truck, but its not capable yet. Still need to relocate and lift a few things before I take her out and get her muddy. Hopefullly this next month I might be able to fix my gas tank conundrum though. It has a stock Cherokee tank that is just hanging on the back of the bed waiting to get ripped off.
  7. Other side of the Bridge, Tacoma here. I found it funny, after I picked up this awesome beast, I have spotted a ton of Comanches all around. I can't wait to take this out to Tahuya next year once it becomes a wheeling rig.
  8. The ZJ dash does fit, and I have to commend the previous owner, he did a great job on putting this truck together, minus a few odds and ends. But I doubt if I would have put it together it would look as good. As for the dash, he cut it down so it would fit, and massaged the front to fit the windshield better. The only issue, and a big one here in WA where is is awalys raining and cold. I have no defrost at all.
  9. Howdy all. I have been “lurking” around this forum for almost eight months now. I have gotten a ton of info from this page for picking out a proper rig, to figuring out what my minor problems were. I guess seeing how this is supposed to be an introduction, I will introduce myself I picked up my Comanche the weekend before I headed down to SEMA, the other rigs I have, are a 2009 Challenger T/A, 2000 Dodge Dakota R/T, and a 1965 Polara with a 383, set up for mild bracket racing. I have had an infatuation with Comanche’s, since my buddy in the Marine Corps let me drive his Comanche Chief around. We had fun in that truck, and I had a blast when we did a road trip from Texas to California in his 4.0 with a 5 speed. Then loading up a U-Haul with all my belongings and rolling up to Washington State. Going up the grapevine, we had a max speed of 30MPH, and were getting passed by loaded semi-trucks. As a money grabbing scheme back then (I probably only made an extra $50) we took the truck to the gravel pit and loaded it full of gravel. I think he still has the 9,975lbs scale ticket. We both thought we were going to break the leaf springs, but that little truck held on for the trip. The rig I have is a 1987 Comanche long bed (wanted a short bed) painted gun metal grey, with a black hood and black cab top. I couldn’t say no to this rig once I saw all the great things about it. The body is 95% straight, it has an owner installed bed liner, a truck box. Came with a painted to match canopy, and to top it all off, it has the full drivetrain from a 93 Grand Cherokee. 5.2L V8. It also has the interior from a 95 Grand Cherokee. Since the guy was just a tinkerer, and wanted to move on to another project, he was generous enough to give me 2 other sets of stock Jeep wheels, 2 sets of fender flares, and another driveshaft. I was able to get all this fun stuff for $1800. Since I picked it up last October, I have pretty much used it as a daily driver, and only had minor issues, where this page was able to help me out fix them. I plan on turning this into my wheeling truck in the future, but for at least the next year it looks like it will be the daily driver. Once I get the chance though, I need to lift it up at least 2 inches, if not more. The Catilic Converter will need to go soon as well. I have a Dakota gas tank to put in the proper location (it has a Grand Cherokee tank in the rear, waiting to catch it on a curb one day). I also need to lighten up the tint, and get rid of the plush Grand Cherokee 6 way power seats, they sit about 3 inches higher than stock. For far future mods, I would like to get a newer Cherokee front clip, and get a short bed on it. It will also need an external cage for the cab (I want to protect the rig and myself) and some nerf bars. If I’m not tired of the rig by then, hopefully beef up the fairly weak (for a V8) 5.2 and place a built 5.9L. Now it’s time to see If I can post up some pics. 100_0030[1] by 00DakotaR/T, on Flickr 100_0036[1] by 00DakotaR/T, on Flickr 100_0032[1] by 00DakotaR/T, on Flickr 100_0035[1] by 00DakotaR/T, on Flickr 100_0034[1] by 00DakotaR/T, on Flickr 100_0038[1] by 00DakotaR/T, on Flickr
