1991 Comanche full 1998 swap

Recommended Posts

Picked up this “rust free” MJ in Colorado August of 2017. My intention was to do the full swap from a 97+ and make it look like a stock Comanche if they had continued making them. Once I got to replacing the rear axle early on in the build with an 8.8 I made the decision to do the axle flip and lift it ultimately delaying completion of the truck by a year or more due to funds.

The truck was missing the tailgate, unbelievably a local salvage yard had one on hand. I started disassembly and found that the rubber floor mat and heavy undercoating were masking some rotten floor pans.

One of the most time consuming parts of this swap was dealing with the firewall. I found a 1998 XJ that had severe rust issues in the roof and quarters as my donor and got started swapping everything over.
