I have had some really bad luck.

I am more curious about the conversion is there anything to look for there .

Rust I'm not to worrie about i have a body shop that i can take care of most of that .

Its not lifted anymore he took the lift off becouse the lift he had was used and some parts were missing.

or worn out so he put it back to stock hight .

I know the gas tank is in the bed he said he pulled it to make room for a air tank.

Will a xj lift fit a comanche

Grab a spot on the couch, beer is in the fridge. Welcome to the madness.


Things to look out for:

BA 10/5 manual transmission

Rust/rot over the rear wheels

Rust/rot on the cab corners

Rust/rot on the rockers

Floorboards are notorious rusters


Pluses to keep an eye out for:

D44 rear

Cargo light

Factory brush guard

Hidden winch



The front lift of an XJ will work the same on an MJ, but the rear is a whole 'nother baby. The MJ is spring under, and the springs are more inboard than that of the XJ. So unlike an XJ, you can spring over the rear of an MJ like a YJ, and net some cheap lift.
