Hey all! Long time lurker and lover of the MJ and XJ platforms! I've wanted one of these awesome trucks since I found out about their existence and, when I got married, the wife was excited about it too! Well...the day finally came. A clean MJ showed up on craigslist at a decent price and I showed my wife. She said "lets go get it!" and so we did! The stats: - 1991 Jeep Comanche Pioneer...long bed. - 4.0 I6 w/Auto - Factory D44 rear, D30 CAD front - Blue - (More to come as I spend time with her) The end goal: - 40s, tons, locked, street legal The timeframe: forever...going to be a long slow build. I want to do things right and I'm not as skilled at fab or auto work yet...but I'll keep learning and enjoying it! Without further ado...I present Rocky, the flying squirrel. Here he is when we brought him home, last night (next to Natasha, my other jeep): Here's a few pics I snapped this morning... Next steps: - Clean interior and hopefully reduce the "old car" smell - Remove the rear bedliner and inspect what's under there - Check what gear ratios it currently has - Fluids check and replace - Spark plugs - Battery and Alternator Boring stuff, I know, but it's gotta be reliable before I start doing anything really big. :)
Happy Halloween Everyone, Just made this video today and thought you would enjoy! Like and subscribe for the burnout at the end, i will be doing a walk around on the Street comanche soon as well. Cheers!
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 ended up needing to build a traction bar and putting in a slip yoke eliminator because, with the stock springs, the axle-wrap was terrible, so it broke 2 driveshafts and 2 stransfercases. In the garage is our 1959 Chevy wagon-nothing special, 350 and a 700r4. Then the 35s went on. You can see the tote lid under it catching fluid from the broken T-case. We then took it out and flexed it on our culvert some: (It whips good pavement donuts, don't ask) Here is a pic of the first ride it went on. It is the Jeep in the front. The other YJ is actually a CJ-5 with a custom front end. Last summer my dad worked on a YJ with a 4.2 and a 5-speed and 27,000 original miles. Here are some more recent shots of it in action. This bottom one is of the first time we had it on the road this year. Feel free to ask if you have any questions!
