I found this Comanche on craigslist and showed it to my Dad. Well I am in Auburn waiting out TS Lee after test driving the comanche and attending Auburn's Football game (witch was a little too close for comfort to start out a season).. Next week I will be back to pay for it and bring it home, I would have done it this trip if the F-250 wasen't in the shop. here are some pics!

 

Its a Black 1989 MJ Pioneer 2wd auto, short bed, WITH A DANA 44!!!

I drove home from Auburn, AL with Dad's "new" Comanche on 9/11/11 and I let him drive it off the trailer. It took him 22 years but he finally got the Comanche he wanted! this weekend we are going to fix the steering and change the spark plug wires.. This Jeep is still running R12 so it looks like we will be looking for some where to top it off while we get ready to convert it to R134a.

last night when dad was on his way home, a truck from the other side of the road with its high beams on passed him on the way home and something hit the truck. dad said that because the guys highs where on he moved towards the edge of the road and heard something hit the front of his jeep just as they passed one another. we also found a good sized rock lodged in the grille.

 

I just finished replacing those freakin parts and they are all damaged again! looks like a trip to the JY is in the works now...

 

the headlight, and everything in the center of the pictures are damaged in one way or another.

Replaced the break rotors and pads, replaced the wheel bearings, re greased everything with a grease fitting, mounted the track bar mount, modified WJ LCAs to fit the MJ, modified the front axle to fit the WJ LCAs, Re connected the front axle, replaced the front shocks, and replaced the steering dampener. I still need to order some ZJ V8 Variable rate Coil springs.
