Here's my 88 and how it will sit for a little while.


Damn you NC guys and your rust free MJ's. My buddy is looking for one right now as a project and may end up making a trek down to NC to find one.

My old '89 the day I got it:



Basically stole it at $900. 4.0, 5 speed, 4wd, long bed, 112,000 miles, ran perfect, ABSOLUTELY NO RUST. Just needed paint, good thing I know a guy.





Daily drove it like that for a few years. Super reliable, fun to drive, and got looks everywhere I went. After I got my '00 4 cyl 2wd XJ a couple years ago it mostly just sat around, so I ended up selling it a few months back. Made a BIG profit on it, which certainly helped ease the pain!  ;D


The day it left:




Good thing I still have 5 more Comanches sitting around.  ;)

Lot of work for very little gain.  :-\

My thoughts exactly.

Day of purchase





A couple weeks ago with the tires rolled in front.




I cant wait to turn it over and then begin the real body mods.

Easier to find tilt steering?

Maybe.  I have been reading up on swapping a gauge cluster without a tach for one with a tach and they basically say it will never work (comancheclub).  That is the only thing I want to swap.
