87 Comanche Chief Restoration
jpnjake posted a topic in Member Projects: Your ComanchesJust picked up and added to the collection of MJ’s with an 87 Comanche Chief. This truck is almost fully optioned out from factory with all the skid plates, Tow Mirrors, RollBar, Bedlight, 4wd 5spd, and Air conditioning. The body is 99% rust free, the plan now is to do a full day 1 restoration on this truck. Here’s a link to the guy I bought it from’s build thread

Dana 44 rear axle
ComancheMadness posted a topic in MJ Tech: Modification and RepairsI'm looking into getting a dana 44 rear axle install on my 88 jeep comanche pioneer 2wd, since I want to add a lift and some 33"s any recommendations on where I can buy a complete set or what jeeps and years can I possibly pull one out of. any feed back is good feedback thank yall ! Lastly, roughly how much would I be spending on the axle if I would have to regear it.
Quick rear axle question ?

86 DD and Weekend Warrior
dumas972 posted a topic in Member Projects: Your ComanchesWell I've been daily driving my 86 for about a year now and haven't posted much about, because I haven't done much except get the dog of a motor running right. It is the 2.8 and I'm pretty sure everyone on this site hates that motor just like me. I only bought the truck because the body, frame, interior and everything else is straight on the truck. Just a horrible drivetrain that will be gone in the future anyways. Question is I have a dana 44 and np231 that is on my other Comanche. Mine is an auto with the np207 and 4 low grinds when engaged. Can I swap a np231 that came from a 5 speed on it? Also is the axle swap from a dana 35 to a 44 pretty straight forward? I will most likely swap a 4.0 HO and auto tranny when I get a new daily driver. I will throw some pics up of my 86.
Unibody rust repair?
dumas972 posted a topic in MJ Tech: Modification and RepairsJust purchased my second Comanche, 91 Eliminator shortbed 4x4 4.0 I6 HO, Ax15, and the metric ton package (dana 44!). Bought it for $1000 runs great only 168k on it and all stock. Problem is floorboards and rockers are gone. (Literally holes you can stick your leg through) I have replacements for both those but came across a rotten frame. Leaf spring and shackles are fine just drivers side is rotted up to the brake lines and a pretty decent size hole. Has anyone repaired a unibody? I know you can strengthen them with unibody supports but anyone do something different?
