Picked up jakewi's 87 mt today...this was jakeman's. Too rusty to fix. Got 5 solid hours in on it, fluids drained, shafts-exhaust-engine-trans-cooling system-harness (es)-tailsand interior are out. Doing glass and axles and treat springs tomorrow then it's off to scrap.. Well party pics once I've got a computer tomorrow.

so, that took 5 hours. I've got all day tomorrow to finish up the deed. what's left...

front axle

rear axle

remainder of harness's

fuel sending unit

MT springs

 

then use the forklift to load it up onto the trailer, and load it with scrap. should get back about $450 in scrap, jake gets his tires back, and I've got a new engine to go in my brother's '88MJ, plus MT springs for the back of the 3800, and a bunch of parts that I don't need.

 

the main point of buying this was for the light blue bucket seat interior for the future restoration of our 2.1 turbo diesel comanche. the rest is just bonus.

stripping down the engine to clean, paint, re-seal, 99+ port matched intake, borla header, crane cam, and (with luck in finding the parts) a 4.2 crank and rods plus new rings.

 

the engine will be going in the maroon truck...interior in the new body for the blue one (diesel)

Am ungodly jealous of that interior. Wow; I believe that's only the 2nd one I've ever seen (bucket setup). Nice work getting everything out to send it on it's way. :wrench:

that was what i put in my 86mj, prior to switching over to a black interior...wish I'd kept the blue, actually.

I've owned both, Old truck was bench, 'new' one is bucket.

 

Honestly can't decide which was more comfy..

 

The bench i had more head room / easier to see out the window, But my knees were pushed into the dash.

 

Buckets i have more leg room but my heads an inch from the roof / have to bend down to see traffic lights :rotf:

 

I need to replace my buckets desperately though, The bracket is all broken / torn fabric etc.

Sucks being 6'5~

I stripped more than was intended, my brother ended up getting back $216 on scrap with just a shell, and $jakewi got the rest of the money to offset the price from transmission sale etc.

Ha! Okay. Thats still pretty dang good for just a shell!

 

I will be doing this soon to my 91 Elim. :(
