September 2016 - 4.0forlife's '88 Olympic Pioneer

Recommended Posts

With the passing of August comes the cool, crispness of September. Speaking of cool and crisp... We have a member and a truck that fit the bill. It's always nice to see someone take something that may have been seen as an eye sore and truly turn it into their own.

Remember That One Time?... Tell Us Your Best MJ Story ●

i just got done doing my slip yoke eliminator. next day i went to work. upon leaving work i noticed that the cross-member looked like it was hanging a little low. so i looked and the bolts were half out. i thought eh i forgot to tighten them. sure enough they had stripped and kept popping lower and lower. it was a slow ride home trying to avoid bumps on n.e. pa mountain roads so the cross-member would stay on the truck. they're now tapped to 7/16 bolts.

CC is Awesome!... Why Do You Think So? ●

ive gotten so much help from old thread to questions that i had to ask about my own problems that baffle me. in the end these are some of the best guys and girls ive meet that all share the same passion of the comanche











Man oh man. Just another good looking truck and build. While it may have started out kind of rough, with the PO leaving half brewed ideas (like a switch for the reverse lights) you combed through the junk and found a solid truck. The steps you took to clean it up, and that bang up job doing the garage paint turned out fantastic.


Enjoy the spotlight!

I like this one. A clean, understated build that still looks great. You've definitely done a good job turning this one around :thumbsup:
