View Full Version : 88 Comanche Short Bed, New Jeep!

April 11th, 2007, 12:21

Just bought my friends 88' Shortbed MJ for $200 (6 months ago)
it was cheap because....

4cyl, AX4 (Manual)
Dana 30 (4:10)
Dana 35 (4:10)
Broken Windshield
no seats
no drivers side floor
Rotted break lines

my intentions is to get this to be a good D/D and light offroad use, i would like to aim for a 5-6" lift and im thinking of doing the Rubicon Express 5.5" Extreme duty. or is it best to buy the parts separat?

I have a newer style 98' XJ Dana 30 sitting at my friends yard to be built and a Dana 44 (Rear) from an XJ waiting for me to pull it out at the junkyard if this helps. thinking of gearing to 4:88 unless you guys think i should do differently

thanks for any help and complements
