  1. Hey everyone! I'm new to this website and found it while looking for advice on fixing up my new(old) 1987 Comanche(if this isn't the right forum to put these questions on i'm sorry i didn't know :???: ), the previous owner hadn't run it in 6 years, and it spent the last 3 of those outside. it has minimal surface rust but the body was spray painted a vomity green, i plan on changing this in the future but at the moment its not important. my first goal is to get it street legal, the brakes and tires are being changed and i would like to clean out the entire engine bay as well as change all the fluids if i have the time. what i was wondering is if any of you guys think i should check anything else for possible safety hazards or any tips/tricks that could help when dealing with a Comanche, or any project car tips in general (This would be my first one and i'm very excited) also, how would you guys go about cleaning an oily and greasy engine bay/firewall without damaging any other components p.s. the Comanche runs, but a little poorly, hopefully refilling fluids and cleaning/replacing hoses will fix it any help or advice you could give would be great, Thanks a lot
  2. 1987 jeep Comanche 4.0 motor. New water pump. Runs great except fuel filter need to be done I have it just haven't had time with the baby. Also going to need a new starter soon and you will want to replace coolant reservoir had to patch it when water pump went. Interior needs some work and so does the body there is a crack in the frame. Also the gas tank and fill neck should be replaced. It is a project truck but definitely a good starting point just needs a small stuff that added up and don't have time for. $1000 or best offer will not part out unless mostly whole truck goes in all. Any reasonable offer can be accepted so lets hear it. Not sure how many of y'all are my way but worth shot. Email is j.boucher690@gmail.com number is 8608844504 my name is Joe. I will send more pics if you want I work third shift so afternoon is better to get a hold of me. Otherwise my girlfriend Ashleigh might answer for you. trying to figured out how to add pictures
  3. Hey, so i just picked up my first Comanche, its a 1987 4x4 2.5L 5 spd. sporTruck in red. It's a project to say the least, but I'm excited none the less. I'm pretty mechanically inclined and have all the tools and access to most of the machines to do most of what I need to, only major problems being: 1: Funds 2: Minor access to heated building to work on it in the frigid Illinois weather as my garage is not heated and my dads garage has two cars in the front heated garage and 3 cars in the heated shop in the back yard :fs1: he has more projects than me I think It has a few issues that i currently know of and I've been doing a ton of reading on here and everything is super super helpful, it cuts 75% of the diagnosis work out of it. Issues being: 1: 4x4 does not engage to front axle (believe its the stupid vacuum issue; Easy fix) 2: Brake lights do not work, and blinkers on the drivers side just light up the brake light on that side... (screams ground issue to me; Should be a relatively simple fix) 3: Intermittent knocking noise under cab on drivers side/center floor, sounds like maybe a trans/t-case mount may be loose or missing, happens at weird RPM's weather the vehicle is stopped or driving, haven't had a chance to get under it and check out where its originating from yet 4: No heat... maybe a heater core from what I can find... the blower motor is working, open to any help on this one 5: Previous owner said it gets death wobble, I have yet to verify that as I've only been to 45mph so far, but hey its a jeep what do you expect right? 6: Radio is inoperable HA who cares I just want to hear the roar of that beastly 2.5L screaming down the highway at 50mph, no but seriously that's the least of my worries as I have a history with car audio so it should be somewhat simple when I get around to it 7: Parking brake doesn't work, haven't looked much into this yet... can't be terrible 8: Speedometer is not working, not sure if the cable is busted or just detached or....? The truck currently runs, drives, and stops, and is not too bad in the rust department and my dad is a body-man so what rust that is there can be taken care of somewhat easily, so that's a plus... Clearly I couldn't pass it up for for $350 The booty-my first view of the truck The front and side view of her Taking her home! Yeah she runs but i had to drive 4 hours away to get it so definatly not going to drive it back :shake: Got her in the garage to check a few things out but had to move it out shortly after Interior is looking pretty good, needs a few window crank handles (got a free vice grip out of the deal :thumbsup:) This is where she sits now! The block heater makes all the difference in startups though wow! :yes: Yes I know the top is ugly :ack: but I'm probably going to leave it on for winter, the bed is pretty nice on the inside! ...and I will pull the carpets and fix the floors come spring time! Any suggestions, criticism, or help would be welcomed and appreciated!!!
  4. So for about 3 months now Ive had a ford 8.8 ready to swap in including a new 5.5 inch lift. :doh:I have everything to do the lift and swap and i know how to do it, but i haven't yet because its different gearing then my dana 30 upfront right now and i need a drivable car and 4wd here in the upcoming colder months. But now that i have this 1995 4wd cherokee with a non CAD dana 30, I'm going to pull it out and have it re geared and put that in my comanche. I'm not going to build it up yet because i don't have the money because i started school and can't work as much, but i just want to replace what i should and get the parts to re-gear it. I'm just wondering what i need to buy for a re gearing? thanks. Id like to get the parts so that i can do this ford 8.8 swap, new 5.5 alexia lift and then this dana 30 all in one weekend. BTW I'm not doing it myself, but i just want to have all the parts ready to bring to the shop. also, the shop in town here is cool with bringing in your own parts. . :MJ 1: . (me after swap)
  5. Today i joined a big club, the rusty floor plan club but its not that bad (so far). I pulled up the drivers side carpet where your feet sit and theres only surface rust except for a hole the size of a thumb that goes all the way through the wheel well and you can see light. I'm in my last week of school so i don't have time to pull out the hole interior this week, but in a week ill do that and sand all the rust and hope for no more holes but then what should i do? should i get it linex? its easy to clean but expensive and takes a couple days, but then what about herculiner? And other good easy to clean bed liner substance. Can they fill the hole?I've heard thats not easy to clean, but its cheaper. also i would get my bed and wheel wells covered with the linex too cause I've been wanting that, but its just a money thing but ill start working again soon. also, could i just prime and paint it and somehow fill the hole or get something welded on. I'm a first timer with this so give me all the details. and yes I've looked at some other stuff, but still not sure what to do. thanks and here's 4 pics of it.

  6. Did a search but nothing came up... I've really only worked on or owned long enough to know 2.5l 86s (4x4 ax4/ax5) before I got myself an 87 4.0l. automatic 4x4...... Now I am totally lost. I noticed the rear driveshaft on my 86s is almost twice as thick as the 87's. What othe differnces are there between them? We found one of three vacuum lines that seem to go to the t-body/intake-manifold via a U shaped hard plastic hose isnt connected to anything and I don't know whats missing here as it is definitely sucking (and hissing). The other lines are attached. Does anyone have a list of what lines/components are supposed to be attached to the t-body vacuums? I followed one larger white hose from the junction clip that is just infront of the tbody to the airbox and engine, the other is a smaller black hose that snakes under the air box - brake booster? Which gauge cluster is supposed to be in an 87? The blue or the black/red? Its obvious someone swapped them at one point since the odometer is meddled with and the temp/oil dials don't work. Also the scratches from the tinsnips used to cut out the gear selector panel are obvious. Good effort though. Some genious removed the CAT - is it necessary for function? I am e-test exempt and have no intentions of driving to california. What is the function of the transmission button on the dash that says power/comfort?
  7. Hey Comanche Club My Name is Breven and I am a jeepaholic. I recently acquired my 3rd Comanche(had a 1988 and a 1992 when I was 15), but I currently own three other jeeps(2004 Wrangler TJ, 1942 Ford GPW, and a 1945 Willys MB). I had been looking for a good Comanche for years when I came across this one two weeks ago. I purchased it from Roadtrip Carolinas in Greeneville,SC. I probably paid a little too much, but as far as myself and my dad can tell it has had no rust or mechanical problems, even in it's 170,000 miles on the road.It needs paint pretty bad but other wise is pristine. it is a fourwheel drive 5 speed 4.0 Pioneer in Dover Grey with a burgundy interior. It needs some paint, but is otherwise solid. I intend to change the wheels from the wrangler wheels that are on it as they tend to rub on turns. I'd like to find some wheels like were on my 1992 Comanche. I intend to rhino line the bed and undersides of the truck as money becomes available. I will most likely POR 15 the cab floor and frame. Not sure how extreme I will get into modifying this truck yet, as part of me wants to restomod it.
  8. Hello! So my '87 MJ sportruck had a slew of issues last summer and has been sitting in my drive way ever since. Right now it won't go into gear, so I'm assuming the clutch needs to be replaced (hopefully not the entire trans, I'll start with the clutch and go from there) I have the new clutch, but I don't know how to replace it exactly, I used to have a link to a DIY tutorial, but can't seem to find it anymore. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! :) Ciao, Ian 1987 Comanche Sportruck, 5 speed. 4.0L inline 6
