  1. 1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 auto 4x4 long bed 244,500 miles. I’ve been driving it daily and rescued it from a guy that never did anything with it. It fired right up after sitting for over a year and the body and unibody are in great shape. I couldn’t pass it up. It has a high pinion Dana 30 front, Dana 35 rear, 231, aw4
  2. Hey everyone, I finally decided to create a profile. I've been checking out the MJOTM every now and then but I just decided to create a build thread of my own. I've done a lot of work to my jeep and still have a lot to do. I figure I'll start off with a little backstory, then go through my build from the beginning. I plan on picking at this and updating the thread when I have free time. I'll post whatever pictures I have but unfortunately I didn't take very many. I never think about taking pictures until I'm done something . Anyway I have some long stories. Here's the backstory: It's a Pioneer, 4x4, 4.0L, long bed. I've known this Jeep my whole life as it used to belong to my uncle. My uncle's father (married in uncle) bought it brand new in '87. Now this guy did not baby this truck! It's been rolled over on 2 or 3 occasions and it was used to pull a 5th wheel trailer! My uncle inherited it before I was born (I'm 22 btw) and drove it daily. Luckily my uncle took better care of it and even had it repainted. And it was still in excellent shape. Now when I started driving I started bothering him to sell it to me because I always liked the look of it. I'm not a big fan of trucks, or Jeeps, but Comanche's are different, you just don't see them every day. Here she is the first day I owned it. At ~230xxx km and 95% rust free, 100% stock. This was April 2016. You can skip this paragraph. I got it in the mind of my uncle that I wanted it and he liked the idea of keeping it in the family, he offered it to me for $2500 but then gave it to my cousin's fiance free because she needed a vehicle. This c*nt beat the hell out of it, kept it dirty, and neglected it, I was not pleased. I bugged her every time I saw her that I wanted it. Well, after 3 years she decided to get a newer vehicle. So I offered her $500 for it! She accepted the offer! Glad she didn't know the value! The first thing I did was put on some 31" tires I found for $100. Not long after I had to stash the Comanche away. You see, I was living with my parents, I already owned 2 cars and they were not happy when I brought this home. We have limited parking space so I had to put it away for a few months. Stay tuned as the built really takes off from here.
  3. If you are ready to sell, or know of one, let me know. Prefer a manual that has or had AC. Willing to pay for a good one! Thx
  4. Hello all! Since I am now only 2 weeks away from picking my first MJ off of a very kind man in NJ. I thought I'd start my build thread for it now! Specs: 1989 Jeep Comanche Custom, 4.0L, 5 speed, 4x4, Long bed. Money shot The interior needs work but not too bad. I'd like to swap to an all black interior. And only 109,000 miles! Not bad for a 24 year old truck.
  5. I was browsing CL for parts for my rally car project and searched for "Comanche" out of habit. No results in my area, but the "Local" results showed a thread with a hitch listed for an 88. I emailed the guy and he replied back, so after a few phone calls and a delay due to Sandy, I went yesterday to pick it up. He was not there but had left it in the back of his truck and I left the cash for him. After getting home, I compared it to pictures on here and on the open internet and it looks WAY off, but he assured me that he pulled it himself from an '88 longbed. He had lots of other MJ parts and has multiple MJs, but I can't fight the feeling that something is not right about it. (Before you ask why I did not just test it out, it was still storming here last night so I could not check it out for fit, and tonight is trick or treating for my kids.) So the model number (83147) shows as a match for a longbed MJ: http://www.realtruck.com/shared/pdf/manufacturers/103/06_hhcatalog-212pg.pdf (Page 41) Further reference: http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=65833 The flanges do NOT look right to me, versus what I saw in these threads: http://comancheclub.com/topic/26626-receiver-hitch/page__hl__hitch http://comancheclub.com/topic/28081-hitch-hardware/page__hl__hitch Did I get the right part?

  7. Any advice or write ups on how to do a remove and install the entire dash assembly in our MJs? Mine is cracked up from 28 years of heat and sun. I am taking the dash out of an '88 XJ as it is not cracked or damaged. Wasn't sure how much work is involved or if there's anything special I need to know before starting...
