1992 project Jeep

Recommended Posts

We found a 92 MJ on line and couldn't pass it up. (It ran)  The kid who had it had given up.

No wonder.  First off he obviously felt that even if there were 20 screws holding something

on, he only needed to replace one.  The other screws he used other places whether they

fit or not. (jammed threads broken plastic and such as a result.)

 

He got some Ford wheels and spacers (unbalanced) put them on and wondered why it 

couldn't be driven above 45 without wobbling off the highway.  

 

We have nice rims and tires on it now and it even drives well.  I have been afraid to put it

in 4WD yet but supposedly the transfer case he hooked up works.  (fingers crossed)

 

220000+ miles on her but who cares.  It is a nice rig and will join the BlackoutJC ranks.

http://jeepx.organd will be at the XXX show (that is XXX as in triple X drive-in with 

damn good root beer) 

 

Now as soon as I can afford the parts.....

I wonder how many on this group know what "monkey $#!&" is...

There are so many holes drilled in this Comanche that we had to use a LOT of it.

 

I had to remove and refit the heater blower and gasket.  I didn't trust the gasket to keep water out and besides

there was a large hole in the rubber below it that let water flow into the cockpit so more monkey $#!&.

 

Well sealed and dry.

Oops...  Sorry, I didn't know that word was forbidden. 

But that is what it is called.  #1 definition.  It is a non-hardening putty

that is sticky and can be used to fill holes.  At the Washington State Patrol

we used it to fill the holes where we ran wires for all the equipment.

When my son Philip was in his teens, he worked in a body shop.

He will be fixing the dents you see in the fenders.

Added a new front bumper and bull bar. The winch is next when I have the money,

Which bumper is that, jcr?

 

It is a SmittyBuilt. My son gets a discount from 4 Wheel Parts and they have been improving the quality of Smitty Built 

products.  It is well built and HEAVY.  I couldn't lift it into place.  But then again I have lost some strength <GRIN>

Yes as I recall it is.  My son does most of the work for me.

He runs a Jeep repair and build business on the side(time permitting). 

He gave me the Comanche and we have been building as time and money allow.

We've done a lot of work that is not visible, engine, transmission and handling components.

We are building a new home and restoring a 1953 M38A1 Willys.  i.e. we are BUSY! ;-)
