Default 1987 jeep comanche 4x4 gauge-on-interest FT? KEEPING IT!!!!

i have a 1987 jeep comanche thats been my on going project for some time now but have started growing apart from it and would really like to have something ready to wheel..

i have done a lot of work to this, it started out as a stock 2wd MJ but now is 4wd...

4.0L I6 has AW4 trans and 242 t-case 134K original miles i am the 2nd owner

has 4.10 gears Front is a Dana 30, rear is an 8.8 LSD with disc brakes,

Cragar d-window 15x8 w/ 4" bspacing
33/12.5R15 BFG mud terrains, front 2 are decent tread with some Wchecking, the rears are the old school tread and the passenger rear has a leak...

custom built front bumper with a 10,000 pound winch from Harbor Freight with a 2-year warranty

has a roll cage installed, rebuilt rockers floor boards re-done..
has 10" of lift (rustys 8.5" coils with 2.25" spacers up front custom built long arms with rough country's adjustable upper arms and SOA rear with 3" shackles.. has all new shocks
rustys HD track bar

brand new rear drive shaft from D&R driveline, also the 4.10's in the d30 are newly installed by D&R driveline

considered an on-going project and needs some things done till it can be finsihed.....
rear bumper
front pinion angle correctedDONE
brakes bledDONE
body paint
speedo cable installed DONE
roll bar mounted (if used..)
??fuel pressure regulator??

would really like to trade for a ready to wheel rig, JEEPS ONLY, i don't want your fords-chevy's atv's dirt bikes or etc...

not sure on an asking price so i'll throw $3500 out there for fun
keep in mind this is not a part out.. and i'm not in rush to sell, just gauging interest on if i should keep it or look into something else....

there is a trade pending, but the to do list will be getting smaller through out the week:
pinion angle
speedo cable
brakes bled

will update as things are done

the pending trade is weeks away so feel free to make offers in case my current interest falls through

sry guys for the not so speedy response....
i bled the brakes yesterday and started in on the speedo cable (2nd attempt for new one on order and if its not correct again i'll go down to LKQ and snag one that will fit :D)

lol miglia like stated just gauging interest and seeing what options i have.... shoot, the more i fix on this thing the more i'm feeling like wheeling it so idk i guess we'll see......

sry dmoney not interested in the 94...

as for the 98.... moparboy send me some pics Humvee710@msn.com

oh yea and the tire size are 33's BFG mud terrains to be exact on 15x8 Cragar D-wiondows with 4" backspacing.... except the passenger rear tire has a leak.... was gonna look for a pair to replace both back tires with.......

well the roll bar is originally from a ranger, and its a pretty close fit but would be better if it were cut and expanded a little bit, which is something that i may do so it mounts correctly... at the moment its just chillin in the bed of the comanche and it prolly needs a good 2-3" of spacing outward for it to fit fluch :D

so i guess its your choice if thats worth it to you or not

after a few beers and a lot of good laughs last night with a few buddies
speedo cable is fixed
adjusted the t-case shifter adjusted to shift to all "gears" of the 242
re-bled the brakes....(had the jeep jacked off the ground and backs weren't stopping very well)

also fixed a minor vacuum leak which led to.... it needs a new fuel pressure regulator... which then leads to new fuel rail body (PLZ correct me if i'm wrong, the regulator doesn't look to be a removable part alone and it seems the entire fuel rail would need to be swapped.......)
but it will be getting some attention later this week so all will be good
