  1. So I think Google has officially figured me out. The algorithm works! I should probably be scared of that though. Recently, 70% or more of my suggested news reads have been either Jeep related or Comanche specific articles. Thought I'd share with you guys. https://www.hotcars.com/jeep-comanche-information-unknown-facts/amp/ https://www.wideopenroads.com/the-jeep-comanche-is-quickly-becoming-a-classic/ https://www.hotcars.com/jeep-comanche-facts/amp/
  2. Not sure if this has already been a topic here, but I stumbled onto this YouTube channel the other day, The Fast Lane Truck. It is a father and son who do different truck mods and trail tests. They have a whole mini series, 7 episodes, dedicated to an '89 Comanche Pioneer. It is a quick watch, each episode is only 20ish minutes long. It's pretty cool to watch them pit the Comanche against a brand new Gladiator on the MOAB trails. I felt obligated to share this with everyone. Enjoy!
  3. fixin to drive the jeep through yet another snowman. started my own tradition building a snowman so i can drive it over. curbs be rough yo! city life. stay tuned later this week for video.
  4. So, has anyone else tried to combine a dodge frame and a comanche? If so, shoot some pics! Here is my attempt. I just wanted a small truck with a 3/4 ton capacity. I'm gonna call it Truck Norris.
  5. 88 MJ 2.5 Need help. Just recently got done installing a locker in the rear axle. When I Got the truck off of the lift, I immediately noticed that my brake lights, turn signals and gauge cluster lights all had stopped working. They worked just fine before hand. My hazards don’t work. Took a peek at the fuses and they’re fine.
  6. Future cummins overland build. This is the day I got it home, rust free from virginia. Follow me on instagram @mulletman.mj.
  7. Looking for a comanche , auto trans and short bed will travel for right one, located at 85040
  8. I am new to the her community and decided to start my first project, a ‘90 MJ. I have spent numerous hours trying to figure out why the driver side taillights are working but the passenger side isn’t. The previous owner butchered up the whole rear lighting harness. So I grabbed one off of another MJ and spliced them together hoping it would fix the issue. It did not change anything. I checked fuses and they are fine. Checked my ground wire on the rear driver side and it’s okay. Any other ideas to look into? Any information helps.
  9. Personal Introduction: My name is Britton and I am an addict...jk but seriously though haha. Career wise I am a mechanical engineer but I prefer to consider myself a jack of many trades and a master of none. I am constantly tinkering on something, working any number of projects, and tossing ideas around in my head constantly (both a blessing a curse). Anyways, I've been into Jeeps since I could drive and this is officially the 4th Jeep I have owned. 1999 2 door XJ 5 speed, 4.0L, 3.5" lift, 265/75/16 BFG ATs on TJ Rubicon wheels, overhead console, cruise control.
  10. Hello everyone! I'm new here. I'm an owner of a 88 Jeep Comanche Pioneer with 73k miles. I inherited this vehicle from my late father who spent a lot of time getting the vehicle roadworthy again. I'm a little mechanically inclined, so I'm working on it bit by bit and learning as I go, since I've received this vehicle, I've replaced the leaking fuel injectors with better ones, I think avoiding a fire while driving it is a priority lol. My next thing to do is replacing the clutch master cylinder since I realized it's leaking on the fuse box! Luckily the damage wasn't to bad, I just cleaned it an
  11. I’m trying to swap a 1992 XJ gauge cluster out a “country” package, into my 1988 MJ Pioneer. I can’t seem t find a proper wiring diagram for either of the models gauge cluster plugs and need some help. I have to use the XJ clusters plug so I need to splice it into the MJs wiring, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  12. I was asked to start a build thread on a 1988 comanche /98 cherokee update. So here goes. I don't find that the swap is very difficult as both trucks are based off the same unibody but with 10 years difference there are subtle changes. The old mj was renix era and used a GM steering column shift included. The xj uses obd2 and floor shift. The hole through the firewall for column will have to be relocated close to brake booster. Measure and holesaw this. Not real big deal. The hvac box is pretty direct. Redrill the lower bolt by fan motor and slightly elongate 2 directly behind mot
  13. Looking for a drivers side switch panel for windows and locks for a MJ/two door Cherokee part #55002135. Updated and Edited 9/8/2018: I purchase the seal from Dzimm and I am still looking to see if anyone is willing to sell the driver's side window and door lock switch panel to me.
  14. Looking to trade my bucket seats from my 89 MJ for a bench seat. Located in Western New York. Willing to buy as well but would like to trade even if possible. We can trade center consoles as well so both match the new seats. I drive a stick but it should still work for an automatic.
  15. Hello Everyone!!! I am officially new to the site, but have been browsing for quite some time as this is the best source of information for my new jeep project. I few months back I was lucky enough to pick up an 88 MJ in good shape. it has the 2.5L, so it is kind of a dog but I'm not trying to race anyone or do any rock crawling at the moment. However, I am in the process of installing a 4.5 Rusty's long arm kit, and ran into an issue late into the project last night; I set the lower arms to right specializations (35 3/8" eye to eye only about 3 full rotations of the joint) and mounted them fr
  16. Saw this 91 Comanche for sale near me and I'm pretty tempted to buy it. Seems a little high and the rust/odo (estimates at 67k) worries me, but seems like a pretty nice rig otherwise and 4x4s go for a premium up here. Price has dropped to $6500 with room to barter. What do you all think? http://jeepcomancheforsale.com/1991-pioneer-ax15np231d44-anchorage-ak/
  17. I have a 1989 comanche eliminator. Inline 6, 4x4, AX15, 3 inch lift. Been driving fine. Just bought it a couple weeks ago. Has a bit of high idle. Leaks here and there. Smallest amount of coolant in oil but it does have 268k miles. Gonna do the head gasket and such soon. I drove it and parked it, no problem. Blinkers stopped working but was going to look in to that. Been following Cruiser54's tips for sprucing up grounds, adding some, etc. Will keep doing them as i go. The next morning after i parked it in my swamp of a driveway, it wouldnt start. Normally i turn the key and the pump primes, i
  18. Finally joined the Comanche club a couple months ago. This is a 1988 4.0 5-speed 4x4 with 180k on the odo. Exactly, what I had been searching for... a shortbed, 4wd, manual with a 4.0. Currently, I am wrestling with some electrical gremlins and goblins. Learning Renix has been interesting, to say the least. Not on the road just yet but, once I am finished sorting out the wiring it should be good to go.
  19. So here it begins, I've always wanted an MJ and when I saw these 2 for $600 couldn't pass them up! They are in ruff shape but they run! one is for parts (no papers) and the other is going to get a makeover...already started this weekend by doing the open cooling conversion, new valve cover gasket and Vent modifications on cover, replaced ALL the vacuum lines and started the newer body conversion on the front end! Keep the MJ's on the road!
  20. Does anyone know if there is a write up on how to swap the newer +97 XJ front doors on to a MJ? I would like to know how involved it is before I go Buy the doors. Thanks
  21. I have a 1991 4.0ho eliminator and plan on tackling an engine rebuild next month. I'm going to drop the pan, again...(I replaced the rear main seal last winter) and need a new head gasket anyway. While I'm in there I'd like to replace the rings as shes burning more oil than I'd like. Is there a "tool of the trade way" to determine what size rings to get? I'd obviously like to get them in advance but I head rumors that back in the early 90's Jeep wasn't the most consistent with their assembly process. I do not want to get the wrong ring size. Also, does anyone have any leads on a go
  22. What fuse controls my 1987 MJ license plate lights? No juice to the bulbs? Everything else (electrical) seems fine. Where I'm from, anything electrical amok after dark is a law enforcement magnet. Cheers, SGTSnacks
  23. Guys, I'm an AutoCAD design engineer and have been looking for CAD Blocks for my '87 MJ 4.0 shortbed. Does anyone have any 2-D CAD templates or know anywhere I can find any? I found a Grand Cherokee, a Patriot and a Wrangler but no 'Manche. Thanks for your help. SouthernBone
  24. Hello again. So I was finally able to get a moment to put my comanche up on Jack stands and get my first real look at what was going on. I had posted a few questions on here before and got some wonderful feedback and now that I am a little more informed, I want to try again. My name is Ant and I just bought my Comanche! It is an 88 Jeep Comanche Cheif. 4.0l Renix 5 speed 4wd Short bed. (Previously I said it was an 87, but the title says differently) The previous owner bought the truck as a project and never began. The Guy he bought it from apparently stoppe
  25. Hello fellow MJ lovers, My name is Ant and I just bought my Comanche! I have wanted this truck since I was 13 and now as a 24 year old I finally have it. It is an 87 Jeep Comanche Cheif. 4.0l Renix 5 speed 4wd Short bed. I just bought it and I am super excited to start working on it but I am left with some questions. First and foremost, the driveshaft is disconnected as the previous owner started to put in a clutch slave cylinder. I am hoping you guys can help me ot. I have owned 2 cherokees in the past that I have done all my own work on but I have 0 experience wi
