New to the crowd


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, new here from Atlanta. I have to admit, as much as I've always liked and enjoyed Jeeps/wheelin' I never really had the urge to own one until I started my current job. Being around the parts and people associated with the wheelin' world have really made an impact on what I want. But my goal is to have a streetable toy that can be driven to work 5 days a week on the highway and go out and have a little bit of fun on the weekends. I'm currently in talks with a guy off of Craigslist about an '89 4.0L, 5 speed, 4x4 in black, hopefully things will work out seeing as how that's exactly what I'm looking for. I look forward to reading and learning more from everyone!


Here are my two pride and joys I've restored/modded, haha.












Thanks for reading!

Haha, thanks man! I work with Omix-Ada, I'd be glad to answer any questions you guys have with any of our products. The first thing I know to look for is the MC leak! I've been doing my research! The 89 is appealing since I'll have the good transfer case and 4.0L, not to mention I might not have the $#!&ty Peugeot tranny!

Yea, I hope I get lucky, too! I'm already lucky there is a 4x4 around, most decent buys I've seen are 2wd! The wagon? Well it's come from completely stock to where it's at now. Run down of mods as follows from what I can remember right now:


1988 Civic wagon DX

Full exhaust 2.5" - Borla XS power muffler



Skunk 2 front shocks

Skunk2 springs & sleeves

Homemade extended top hats in the rear

New oem rear shocks

Wicked Tuning adjustable toe links



Stock steelies re-barreled


0 offset

195/45 front Nexxen

RT4wd center caps



Repainted with paint matched bumpers

Front JDM bumper

Tinted amber corners

1991 Momo Veloce (period correct for my car)

Rockford 6.5s in the doors

Here she is stock in all her glory.



And the Cuda. (front of the driveway)

Haha, na, not right now. The reason I want an MJ (besides being awesome) is so I can DD it for a month or two while I pull the motor from the wagon and throw in a 2.3L NA Vtec build. I'm shooting for 260whp/9k rpms. Considering the swap in it now has been rebuilt it pulls pretty hard for a 2300lb car! :D

Welcome, remember you don't have to own a Comanche to be a member (it's one of the rules), hope the sale goes well.

LOVE that FC7 'Cuda, post its specs!!! What's the other E-body, another 'Cuda with a SHAKER? :drool: :drool: :drool:

Here's part of my 'Cuda collection :jump:

It's just a slant six car I bought with 300k original miles. Right now it's got a 225 thats bored .30 over with an aluminum 4bbl intake and carb. I've got a 440 that I need to rebuild for it, but I'm trying to get my dad to trade his 340 for it. haha That's his '71 with a 340 slapstick he's had since '81. I've got a bunch of Cuda collectibles but nothing like yours!

Hahaha, I guess that's a good point. I've loved the AAR since I was a kid, and I really enjoy road racing so an AAR is a prime example of what a muscle car is capable of to me. Straight lines are cool, but having that wide menacing machine screaming up behind you in a turn is something else! :) Thanks for the warm welcome!
