1988 SWB Comanche Build


Recommended Posts

It was the contacts in the pcm where the starter relay goes. It turns over with the key now but it would start with gas. I got the engine bay sorta cleaned up and I got a new valve cover gasket in. Got the Dakota pump installed in a non slosh tank with a motobilt ring. Sold the bed late last night and now I’m gonna start working on the flatbed while continuing working on the weekends to get this thing running and driving. Still need to get the brakes ran and finish the 97 door strikers. Lots to do and not a lot of time.

Today I used a wire wheel to scuff off some crud from where the windshield has been leaking. I found that the floor has been patched with fiberglass already. I just used por15 bc I already had it and I figured I’d cover the whole floor inside and underneath it outside. Next I’m going to put down some kilmat on the tunnel and behind the seats. Also tom it goes off to a buddy of mine to finish up the wiring, plugs, cap/ rotor, and brakes. After that it’ll be back in my shop to do the flat bed, mount the gas tank, and make seat brackets. All within time I suppose.

Over the last month me and my good friend worked on this thing to get it where it is now. I’m gonna finish the rest after I ets back home from the army. But for now it runs and drives

-most all electrical issues have been fixed

-brakes installed and bled with extended brake lines

-fuel lines  lines routed

-non slosh pan adapted to a Dakota pump with motobilt ring 

-front rough country springs and shocks

-diff fluid

- 2wd driveshaft shortened(temporary)

-transmission linkage and t case linkage 

 

next few steps will be to add Cherokee seats, finish up the flatbed, door strikers, and paint.

So for the front and rear of the flatbed it’s gonna be made with this 2x6 .25 wall dom. I’m gonna run 2x2 3/16 wall down both sides then brace them. Then comes a gas tank mount and skid, and some tool storage underneath. I’ve thought about running ammo cans sideways underneath for storage. And of course a nice sized vice near the cab on the 2x6.
