Default 1990 Jeep Comanche Build

Well I picked up the MJ from mrclean hoping to just beat it through the trails but im starting to really like it so it's gonna get fixed up and driven all the time.

The day I went to look at it.


Got it home.



First step was my old cherokee HD steering that I had laying around.
My friend was scraping her XJ so my second step was a second gen front clip.


Then came buying my old 35s back.


Some pics next to the cherokee.



I'm picking up another 99 XJ today for cheap so I'm sorta tossing around the idea of a full interior/electrical swap to eliminate the shitty Renix system.
We'll see what happens.

Picked up the new 99 for super cheap and the thing is damn near spotless. The kid I got it from said it overheated and a shop told him the engine was blown. I put a battery in it and it fired right up and ran great.
These doors and hatch will go on my XJ and my front doors will go on the MJ.
Then the winter plans will be to put this interior and electrical into the MJ.

Front clip is gone. Wheels are mismatched colors. Two are the color seen and two are the same wheel but a charcoal color. (Would match if painted) The tires are wasted.

So as it turns out I don't think I'll have the time this MJ needs along side my XJ so I'm tossing around the idea of selling it. As mrclean told me, I'd rather see it go to someone who can help it reach it's potential. I'd like to get $1250 to get my money back out of it. When I make up my mind I'll make a FS thread. Until then feel free to make an offer.

Oops I forgot to update this. I sold it a couple months ago.
I must have forgot to mention that yesterday with Mira's excitement to show off your guy's work. (Which was cool to see) You have a great build going and I look forward to following it.

D'oh! Shortest-lived thread subscription ever. Yes, Mira was excited to show you her XJ. She's still in bed, but I'll have her log on after church this morning, and read some of the comments recently posted there.
