figured its about time i start a build thread for my comanche. don't really feel like doing a whole timeline so I'm going to start from how it sits now and just go from there

unkown front bumper, custom rear bumper

T&M fab frame stiffeners the entire length of the jeep

I'm sure theres some other little odds and ends I'm forgetting but thats just a general over view

Had Some custom fenders and besides with tube flares built. Got the fronts mocked up. Still need to get the rears mocked up then they'll be ready for paint and final installation

Finally got the bedsides mounted and painted and also decided now was a good time to mount the Lund visor I’ve had Laying in my garage for months now

It’s a lot to go though and take pictures of what’s already done. But I’ll be adding more detailed pictures and updates as time goes on

Swapped in a grant steering wheel with a quick release hub from ruff stuff and Did the WJ booster and master swap tonight. Haven’t gotten to drive it around the block yet but I rolled it around the drive way and it seems to stop much better then it did before. Can’t wait to take it for a test drive tomorrow

Did a little update to the OBA today. The Jeep came with an air tank mounted under the bed but it was never hooked up. Decided to finally hook the tank up to my ARB compressor and I added air chucks to fill up tires and whatnot

Very nice build.  Those fender flairs look nice and should be a great solution to wide tires.  Do they do a good job of keeping mud and road grime off the side of the truck?  What made you remove and replace the bushwackers that were already there?

2 reason I took the bushwhackers off. 1 I think this set up looks way better and 2 the armor that was incorporated into the tube fenders will do a way better job protecting the body then plastic fender flares

It looks like you are using the best components. How bad is the noise from the ARB with the windows up?  Not an inexpensive item.  Wood grain dash and steering wheel match up nicely.

It’s definitely a little loud. But once it pressurizes the system it hardly kicks on at all and if it does It’s only for a second or 2 so it’s not to bad

Rear ARB installed in the 8.8. I hated the way the Detroit behaved on the street with having a 5 speed. It drives much better on the road now with being able to unlock the rear
