88MJXLS Posted January 21, 2010 Share Posted January 21, 2010 I bought my MJ back in August and have been slowly working on it (unfortunately, being in college has decreased my cash flow so it's taking longer than I'd like, but oh well.)When I started, it was a completely stock '88 MJ Sportruck minus the front bumper and plow. One of the axles was messed up and the suspension was pretty rusty and wound up being replaced. While swapping the axles I thought it'd be a good idea to upgrade to 3.55 gears instead of the 3.07's Didn't take into account that the springs mounted over the rear axle now since I took it from a Cherokee, so now my Comanche has the equivalent of a 6" lift in the back, where else can you get a 6" lift for $85?? A better shot taken later when it was at my house (was working on it at a buddy's since I still was lacking in the tool department) A few weeks after the axle swap it was deemed roadworthy and got a (nearly) new set of tires/rims off a buddy's '98 Grand Cherokee (don't you love it when people have no room in their garage and give away free Jeep stuff??My latest modification was the removal of the warped plastic bedliner, and a few coats of spray on bedliner that turned out pretty decent (will need touching-up in the spring but at least it's protecting the bed from rust/scratches/etc.) Next planned addition is a 4" lift for the front, along with new steering stabilizer, and drop pitman arm. Hopefully I'll get a chance to break it in during spring break! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
