  1. Hey all, i'm the proud new owner of this '89 MJ. It came with some issues as most older jeeps do. First order of business, clean the throttle body and iac. Trying to eliminate the vacuum leak, which is massive. Kicking out a loud whoosh when i step on the gas pedal, limiting my top speed to 35 mph. PO installed an electric fan to help with overheating, seems to work well, keeping temps at 220 F if i can trust the thermostat. So i'll be under the hood for a while this week. The forum articles on vacuum leaks are helpful. Also i'll be looking for a new flexplate, mine is cra
  2. Ok a trip through my last project. Rock sliders for my 1989 Comanche. First obtain some 2x2x1/4” square tubing. Cut to near length and see where it’s gonna end up.
  3. Please help, I've got engine oil in clutch reservoir (?) I recently became a proud owner of a 4WD 89 Comanche 4.0 paired to a Peugeot transmission, but the previous owner lost the clutch while delivering it to my house, making clutch-less shifts. We added fluid to the master cylinder reservoir, pumped the clutch, and the fluid turned black. Now the clutch has some pressure, but quickly loses it as it drips from where the rear main seal would be. The seller mentioned that the rear-main seal was most likely bad, and it explained the oil leak that I saw when I test drove it. The master cylin
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. backstory- back in early 2015 i saw this comanche for sale but had no money, after about a year of working and saving i started looking again. i came across the jeep again one year later in early 2016, with the same selling owner. i contacted him, drove 2 hours up to north jersey with my father and brought it home
  7. Hi guys I just joined the club a couple of days ago, I've been to lazy to join in the past year, but no more excuses! Time to let you guys see my work in progress Jessica... If anyone wants to know why I named her like that ask and Ill tell you guys the story lol. I purchased her pretty much all "ready to go", but as soon as a started wheeling it, and like with any used car purchase, all the bugs started coming out, it was then when I realized she was a pavement queen... All this mods were done by the PO. One of the first things that happened to me was the infamous dea
  8. Hey guys, new member here! If this has already been answered somewhere then I apologize, I have not been able to find it! So I’m trying to figure out if the flexplate follows the engine year or the transmission year. I’ve got a ’91 MJ, 4.0, auto, 2wd, column shift, short bed, etc. I recently grenaded a wheel bearing and ruined a spindle, so decided to go ahead and do a 4wheel swap. I bought an almost exact 1990 Comanche but 4x4 and worse body to part out. In doing some research I noticed flexplates are listed by ’87-’90 then ’91-’00. Both seem to have the same specs (164 teeth, 13.83” OD, 12-1
  9. So I plan on doing the 4wd conversion to my 1989 2wd automatic 4.0L MJ. I obviously want the cheapest route and don't mind the work needed. I guess my question is, if i found another xj within the years 87-90 (renix) does everything swap right in? besides the rear driveshaft (I know that would have to be re-sized). I also have an automatic tranny right now and keeping it would be less costly and less work than getting a manual trans but would my ax4 be a good match up for a transfer case? Or would I have to swap the trans from a donor with a 4x4 auto? This is my first big project for m
  10. I am looking for a 3/4 or full guage cluster for my 1989 MJ with the 4.0L and automatic transmission. Let me know what you have and price shipped to 72687. Thanks.
  11. Does anyone have a part number for the plastic door lock Rod clip for a manual door ...passenger side. Apparently one off of a electric Cherokee door I got will not work. It's to fat so I whittled on it and then I broke it. I was hoping to find a dorman part number or something I can pickup at lock parts store.
  12. It has been a long time coming friends. Here is a little background on this project... I drove to Alabama from Georgia to tow this beast home after looking for a long time. Got it for $900 in working condition with some "minor" fixes necessary. I guess "minor" is somewhat subjective, but here is a list of what I got, what was wrong with it, what I've done to fix it so far and what I'm planning on doing. Keep in mind that this is still in progress. I will keep you guys updated as it comes together with tons of pictures and probably some videos. I'm big on videos... Anyway, here's the beast
  13. I was wondering which fuel pump, and filter to get for my 1989 Jeep Comanche 4.0l i6. I was looking at some on rock auto but wasn't sure which one would fit and be good to go rather then having to modify any wires. Thanks for the help!

It used to run really great but over time and lack of TLC it became a driveway ornament for 6 plus years. Its been sometime since I originally meant to make this post because I was waiting for the email v
  15. My '89 Eliminator 4.0 automatic doesn't want to engage reverse and it feels like I'm in neutral. All other gears work fine. Any info will be greatly appreciated!! Mahalo
