  1. A couple of summers ago my father, brother and I tore apart my dad's 95 YJ Wrangler that had a 4 cyl and a 5 speed. Here is what it looked like once the rust got cut out and test fitting the engine: Here it is with the frame, body, and firewall painted. The interior got a spray-in raptor bedliner. It was on 235s. Then we put the front fenders, grille, and rock-sliders on. It has the original steel body and the frame has been patched. Then we put the windshield and flares on. This is it all together with the 235s on it. We

  6. My 87 MJ project is almost ready for inspection but my reverse lights are not working. I have tried many things for it to work including changing the bulbs, checked the wire for damages, and checked connections from the switch and at the sockets. I am lost. If someone could point me in a direction that would help I would really appreciate it.
  7. In my formidable years, my father always told us boys, that you will never own a motorcycle or a Jeep Wrangler. He considered that those two motorized vehicles were death traps. God rest your soul, Dad. Today, I placed a down payment on a 2005, Jeep Wrangler TJ Rubicon. It is bone stock, yes the body sheet metal has typical rust, but its frame/skeleton and running gear, are in great condition. The soon to be, previous owner took very good care of it and each time that it was driven on salty roads, they would put it through an automatic car wash/undercarriage
  8. My 1977 RHD DJ5-F I’ve been restoring. It’s a love/hate sharing this build because 90% of the time people who never knew they existed leave a big spiel on how they are going to get one to put on one tons with an LS swap when they don’t even know how to install their own windshield wipers🤷🏼‍♀️ But for the details. 232 with 727 TF trans Dana44 rear axle 2wd(they all were) RHD 7.50x16 BFG KM3s 16” original willys pickup wheels I dug out of a field and pieced together.

  9. 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
  10. Hi All, This is my first ever post on this forum or any forum for that matter. I have an 87 Comanche 4.0 pioneer that has a bad ticking noise. It has been doing this noise for the last 6 months I've owned the truck. I've run thicker weight oils, various additives and they did little to help. The noise is strange in that it is intermittent and only seems to get bad after the engine is fully warm. Did the rear main seal two months ago and didn't notice any metal debris in pan. It doesn't get noticably audible until oil pressure is under 40. Seems to be worse at idle(or just easier to hear
  11. How's she goin? long-time lurker here from Cape Breton Canada who decided to finally get off his rear and make a build thread on my 1992 Comanche base model. So, you may ask why call this thread "pipe-dream?" well, ever since I seen my first comanche when i was 8 I've always wanted one, i owned tons of jeep cherokees, and built lots of them to, but.. it just didnt feel right. they were fun and stuff sure, but for the things I do day to day, they were just lacking in the utility department. The first one I built was a 93 Cherokee sport, I had purchased for $1,200 of s

  13. 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
  14. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the the bored renix throttle body from http://www.strokedjeep.com and if so what luck they had and any real benefit? Thanks
  15. Hello All! Obligatory I'm new to the Club and I was raised a Jeep guy sentence. Anyhow, I have been looking for my own MJ for almost two years now... and finally I found one! I created this topic in order to record my build process, and to hopefully find some input on what to do and tricks on doing installs and whatnot. So far I've made two lists: One for necessary repairs to get done first in order for my Jeep to pass inspection, and a list of potential gradual modifications. It is a Red '87 Comanche SporTruck, with the short box, inline six, 231 transfer case, dana 30 front and 35 rear, and
  16. 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
  17. 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

  19. Hello everyone! I am a graduate from Kettering University (AKA...General Motors Institute) and I took a vehicle dynamics course while I was there. Apart of the class was to create a portfolio for one vehicle within each group and of course I chose my 1989 Jeep Comanche (Eliminator package) to do my portfolio on. The calculations within the files below were calculated using both CarSim (simulation software), in lab measurements (in garage, using weights and measurement tools), and vehicle dynamic equations. Below I have the power point presentation and excel document Google Drive links that
  20. Recently acquired a 2004 chevy trailblazer it has 4.20L inline 6, locking rear end (g80), 4L60-E, and stock transfer case. It was t-boned passenger side impact,side runs and drives straight. What I am curious has anyone swapped these components(any or all) into their jeep comanche or cherokee and what were the problems that they encountered. I would definitely like to put the locking g80 rear end under the manche for sure, also the trailblazer's rear end is a coil sprung 5 link, which could be a huge upgrade. Swapping whole drive train would be most ideal, as the i6 is rated around
  21. Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum. I just picked up my first Comanche yesterday. Snagged a non-running 86 4x4 auto model for $500. I wanted to start this thread so I had a place to post progress on the truck, as well as get feedback and tips. Plans for the truck so far are to get it running, repair any rust, paint, bedliner, wheels and tires, and then use it as a daily driver to keep the miles down on my TJ. Eventually I would like to do a lift, bigger tires, and a motor swap. The truck will mostly be used to drive back and forth to work, hauling loads of mulch, and the occasional light
  22. Hey guys I have a 1990 jeep Comanche and ever sence I bought it it had no radio. It had a pioneer head unit.

  23. Let me apologize in advance if this thread is in the wrong place. I bought a toolbox for the comanche. Unfortunately it has no key, so i have no way to lock it. Has anyone ever replaced the locking mechanism on a toolbox? Is it fairly simple? I won't be keeping anything valuable in there, so if this is going to be a huge PITA, I will just live with not being able to lock it. It would be nice to not have to worry about someone stealing my jumper cables or gas can though.
  24. I am interested in buying brush guards for my grill guard for my jeep, I purchased a pair off the internet and they were not the correct size :fs1:. I am not sure what brand my grill guard is but I purchased "Go Industries" grill guards and they did not work. Please let me know! . :MJ 1: .
  25. Hows it going I just got a new clutch kit and flywheel for my 88 Comanche also comes with the hydraulic throw out bearing /slave cylinder... I know how to bleed my clutch but I don't know how to bleed a new hydraulic throw out bearing and I think it has to get bled before installing to prevent it from rupture... can anyone please help me thank you
