  1. The world's slowest 8.8 swap is still underway. Have the axle broken down completely, going back together with Revolution 4.56 gears and all new bearings/seals.
  2. I pay $114/mo for liability/comprehensive/roadside on a 2006 Honda Pilot, 2004 GMC Sierra and the 1989 Jeep Comanche through Travelers.
  3. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/309623694018222/?ref=facebook_story_share Very interesting camper top and snorkel combo. Nice looking 91!
  4. I did end up going with the 4.56 gears. Got all the tools and parts on the way or here, so here I go in the slowest way possible.
  5. Long story short: LWB MJ. 4.0 HO, AW4, 4.5" lift, D30, 8.8 (going in), 32s. I'm trying to decide between 4.10s and 4.56s. Don't plan on doing much interstate driving. 4.10s would be a close equivalent to stock ratio, (27" and 3.55) How much will I regret it if I go with 4.10s over 4 56s? My main goal is to be able to drive 55-60 in 4th with the TCC locked at a reasonable RPM. I know 4.56s would make it more fun around town, which is mostly where I drive. Planning on going with Revolution gears unless someone has better sugg
  6. Congrats! Looks like a blast to drive. Always have to support another SC MJ.
  7. I missed this topic, haven't been very active here lately, but I have 4.5" Zone lift and am running 32x11.50R15 Cooper AT3 XLTs. They do rub while turning, however, that is the fault of the offset of the Mammoth Boulder 15x8 wheels I am running. With a more stock offset, I don't think they would rub. I'm about to regear. My 4.0 and AW4 won't stay in overdrive until 65mph or so. It will lock in and lock the torque converter at ~60, but the slightest incline or headwind and back to 3rd gear we go. I'm trying to decide between 4.10s and 4.56s yet.
  8. I'm glad I swapped the 93 XJ harness into my 89. Factory power lock relays.
  9. What??? I love this truck. Congrats to the new owner.
  10. Thanks to@eaglescout526 , I learned my Comanche, which I know has been in South Carolina at least the last 20 years, came from.... Tacoma, Washington Eagle Jeep. Complete opposite end of the country. That's crazy to think about. I had figured no further away than maybe Tennessee.
  11. One answer: Noco Genius packs. That's what I use at the shop. They're fantastic with a good warranty.
  12. https://www.bbqpartscanada.com/brands/masterbuilt/models/sqpgd Sorry, no parts available, but here's a pic and diagram.
  13. I haven't commented on this thread yet, I don't think, but I really like your MJ. Such a great DD build/look.
  14. Leaves? Burn, but since I'm in town, mulch. Shrimp or lobster?

    2 door XJ owners

    I like the look of the 2 doors, but if I'm going for another XJ, it would be a 4 door. One thing to keep in mind, I personally hate how 2 door length doors swing back at you when you're parking uphill. I've driven some cars that will straight knock me over, and I'm a pretty big dude.
  16. Just a few thoughts. I work with quite a few rural mail carriers. Their vehicle is quite literally their money maker. Fix it right, fix it quick, and they are your most loyal customers. However, that being said, they need their car fixed ASAP most times. As far as liability, maybe do it for a "suggested cash donation". Most of the rural carriers I work with aren't compensated repair order by repair order, but given a yearly stipend.

    I'm a Dad again!

    Happy to welcome this little guy to the family today. Everybody is healthy and happy. Two boys now.
  18. Looks like a very reasonable price
  19. Do you have a multimeter? Get a helper and when it's not cranking, check voltage at the big wire and the small wire at the starter solenoid while your helper turns the key. You should have over 10V at both. If you have lower voltage on the big wire, check your battery terminals.
  20. From what I've seen, 3800 superchargers are either mounted on top of the intake with an adaptor (which can require you to cut the hood), or side mounted, with a custom intake. https://www.boostedtech.com/superchargers/jeep-cherokee/cherokee-4-0-liter-6-cylinder-side-mount-supercharger/ You need to rig a new belt setup, fuel management, etc The other option is an M90 from a Ford 3.8 SC, but it mounts in place of the AC compressor, which I'm not willing to part with.
  21. As a mechanic, Milwaukee has by far the best assortment of automotive power tools. I use most all Milwaukee M12 Fuel stuff, 3/8" stubby impact, 3/8 ratchet, 1/2" Fuel drill, etc everyday. I have all Milwaukee at the house, multitool, Sawzall, 1/4" impact, drill, etc. I do want to get a mid or high torque 1/2" M18 impact one of these days, but since my work is primarily driveability, electrical and HVAC, I don't have much need for it.
  22. This dream garage scenario is fun. My answers might not be totally conventional though. This is assuming like new condition unless otherwise noted, and that I don't have to worry about maintaining these myself unless I really want to. My current MJ, although with changes A 2WD V8 MJ My old 1989 XJ Waggy Golden Eagle CJ7 LS swapped Grand Wagoneer 1970 Plymouth Cuda 440, manual, Vitamin C orange 2000 Civic Si in Electron Blue Pearl 1992 Ford Taurus wagon with manual SHO swap, dark green 1996 Dodge Viper GTS coupe, blue, white stripes
  23. Such an excellent example of a beautiful truck. Props to you for maintaining it so well, I wish more Comanche owners had done so.
