  1. Get you info right at least, this is supposed to be the freindly and knowledgable comanche club forums. YES they do and have always had thier adjustable front track bar in the kit! :nuts: . Though sold seperate RRO does offer control arm drop brackets and fixed and adjustable lower and adjustable upper control arms. Stay away from RRO kits for valid reasons not for heresay. Do have them check inventory for you before you order if you are in any kind of a deadline rather than order online and assume it's coming the next day.
  2. A helpful chart for input gear spline count and length changes. http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/np ... _gears.htm
  3. Make that a penny or two, here is a nickel. I don't see a dam thing wrong with running OME springs and coil spacers combined or selling them as a lift kit, my personal experience for years of trouble free offroading and daily driving the hell out of my Jeeps with OME and spacer lifts is what my opinion is based on. OME makes great springs but they are on the short side so have to be combined with spacers for more lift. The RRO lift kit doesn't address control arms. This is actually a benifit of the kit. You have the freedom to do a long arm kit, a drop bracket kit, or your favorite a
  4. After everyone participated in the cleanup it was time for fun. I was sicker than a dog that day but hung in there to mostly play photographer. along with several XJs and many other rigs there was an MJ there! Invited him to check out the forum, I took a few pics of it in action. Apologies for the super harsh lighting. Any of these will link you to the full album.
  5. Utah Comanche just sold out :mad: - but for good reasons, and luckily before I had a chance to ruin my wallet on it. :D But he does have a replacement XJ in the works already. Welcome, the slow norris!
  6. I had to sell my 66 recently :cry: - but it never looked that good. Thanks for the pics.
  7. I was looking into the rocky road ones awhile back and they said that they're rockrails were designed for the short bed but it would work in the longbed (they said it was the same wheelbase so it wouldnt matter :roll: last time i checked 119 is longer than 113 ) so idk if they would actually work in a lwb or not. RRO unfortunantly still havn't had a chance to get a LWB test truck in the shop. Was out at a local wheelin spot Saturday. There was a LWB there and people were suprised the wheel base was different between the two, I told them 113 vs 119 so my memory is holding out :brows:

    moab

    Hard to be there for the best weather and miss the crowds at the same time. ;) It is a ghost town December through early Feb (esp January). And it is generally hot June through Sept. I have seen it snow there in June and worn t shirt and shorts Mid February. Here is a great resource for finding Moab locals to wheel with. http://webejeepinmoab.com/ Sometimes you can find groups to join up with at City Market (grocery store in the middle of town) Also the Intermountain Chapter of NAXJA http://www.naxja.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=72 always has somebody down there both scheduled
  9. So, it's DavidB (but not on RME, that is a different DavidB) or Barney or Utah Comanche! I debated using my RME screen name on here. Badger is on here too!
  10. Hey bubba! gravesdiggerxj(stratton) told me all about your trip but I hadn't seen these pics yet, thanks for sharing! "If it breaks - Upgrade!"
  11. Ha - on second take it's the exact same truck in both scenes, first scene is a street shot at night, second scene is with daylight. Something is odd with the pinstriping and there is a strip on the door edge for preventing dings.
  12. Deep Blue, w/ Kurt Russel a crooked LA police plot type movie I hadn't heard of before is on Cable right now. Anyway about half way through after Mr Russel's charachter has the divorce chat with his wife and is walking aimlessly down a street - camera pans as he walks right past a white MJ shown from about the middle up with a clear view of the tailgate. Very next scene he walks through a motel parking lot right behind a grey MJ shown full side view! Not an impressive movie, best part of it so far if finding the MJ's. Missing part to find this thread and post. . I think I'll rew
  13. They specify short bed so it goes without saying but sounds to me like a mis-interpretation maybe due to poor wording by the responder, I think the response is meaning they only offer the one wheelbase rockrail. I agree the short bed rails should "fit" longbeds fine except to be far too short to the rear but then I'd also be concerned on the mounting. Just need to find some long bed-ers willing to loan a rig for mock up who also happen to be local to these companies! As to Rocky Road rockrail quality I can attest to abusing my RRO XJ rockrails pretty hard. Most recently used the
  14. I'm very close to you but currently wheel my XJ during this on-going MJ build up. Saw your rig parked out front at the offroad expo earlier this year I believe, and your Moab trip report posted on RME, good looking MJ! As I've already decided on a name for a Utah comanche owners club I'm definantly interested in trail runs or meet and greets even if I'm showing up sans MJ for now. BTW I ended up out at 5mile pass Saturday night doing some hill climbs and ran up the Rattlesnake trail, sorry I didn't see this sooner.
