Best MJ story

Being selected Comanche of the Month! And it being July 2010 would be on my one year anniversary (bought her July 4, 2009) :USAflag: jamminz.gif

 

What owner loves best about CC

It is a great source of information for Comanche enthusiasts and the people in the club are very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. :cheers:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That's one nice looking put together truck. :D Its been a great time being able to watch the small touches, and the way things have come together. I must say, as well as the other mods, love the tasteful things you've done to make this truck updated, but not overdone. So, I'll be the first to say congratulations, and welcome into the Comanche of the Month spotlight.

 

Well done. :cheers:

Congrats Matt. Lots of quality work in a short timeframe shows you are a dedicated MJ lover and a valued CC Forum member. I like the way you have shared your experiences both good and bad with the forum and created a very clean looking and unique rig. And I'm sure there is much more to come. These things are never done. :cheers:

Hey All,

 

Thank you for kind words! :cheers: I've really enjoyed reading and looking and looking and reading again :dunce: about all the other builds/experiences on here. It has made my buildup/resto relatively painless; alot of work, but worth it. jamminz.gif :USAflag:

 

BTW did you run into problems with the passenger door hitting your glove box? I thought I read that it hits somewhere?

 

If you use the door panel with power windows, the switch part will interfere with the glove box door. I used manual window panels and have no clearance issues. :thumbsup:

I wonder how you get around that. I've seen the write ups on the door striker swap; how difficult was it to do? By the way, nice truck.
