Introduce yourself and your comanche


Recommended Posts

Does anyone local to Seattle area have a nice condition short wheel base COMANCHE bed liner (with original COMANCHE logo across the back)?  I've been looking for one.  Also looking for a red/dark red interior/bench seat.  Thanks!

I don't know many shops that are still running up your way, you might try John at Auburn auto repair and offroad.

 

He's pretty active in the offroad community and i can't recall ever hearing anything negative about his shop.

HI everyone.  I Just came across this site today googling some info, and I am elated I have found such a huge Comanche community!  This is awesome!  SO, I'm Bryan, based in Vancouver, WA.  I own a 88 Comanche Eliminator...or at least that is how it started out it's life.  It's kind of a mish-mosh, now.

This is my second Comanche.  The first one I owned was an 89 Pioneer longbed, and it had over 300k miles on it, and still running strong!  That truck was unstoppable!  I was sad to have to part with it.  fast forward to Summer last year...I came across this 88 that had been pretty haggered out, and we were flipping cars, and this was dirt cheap...and being a Jeep guy and having owned several XJs, I figured I could make a quick buck.  no sooner did I get it home (a story in itself!, wow) that I started looking it over, and a previous owner had dumped a LOT of money into this rig.  so, I decided to keep it.  Now, I have big plans for it!  at first it was going to get a LS1 swap, but a friend with an XJ project turned me onto a brilliant idea....TDI swap!  yes, VW Diesel!  ooo, yeah!  

 

......Project DieselChe was born!......

 

Anyways, so what I have today is a 88, with 96 Drivetrain.  

96 4.0L HO, AX15, NP231, Dana 30 non-disconnect front (96), 35 Rear (stock)

 

also goodies:

4.5in Fabtech lift with drop link brackets and rear shackles. stock springs

Bilstein Piggyback resi shocks

Rubicon Drag link

Tremec Heavy duty clutch

new radiator, and a host of other new parts

 

Yukon Gear lockers front and rear

stainless brake lines

steering box brace

Bushwacker flares

Comp Cam (lift unknown)

Flowmaster exhaust

 

Definitely a lot of good things to build off of.

 

So, I have a long road ahead, but a good platform.  still needs a LOT of work, as the body has had a rough life of wheeling.  MY plan....a nice clean capable rig that gets great mileage and will go anywhere I need it to go.  I don't need it to be able to conquer Moab, but I want it to be capable enough to get in and out of tough spots, and turn heads while doing it!  (it already does in it's current state)

 

so anyways, Can't wait to start a build thread and share my fun adventures.  Give a wave if you see me on the road or trails!
