Re: 1989 jeep comanche build thread

Well... after lifting mine, and seeing it in person, I know what you mean about the rake! I don't mind some, but it's a little much right now. I am also using 4.5" Rusty's springs, and plan on adding a spacer. I am also going to trim and raise the front flares as well, so that will help with the appearance.

This also shows what yours would have looked like OD green

The semi gloss looks good, I used that to paint half my jeep.

Who got your panties in a bunch? It could be a perfectly legal trail for all you know. It sure looks like one to me.

Anyways, Nice lookin MJ! I don't know how I missed this build.

So, yeah, it would appear they were someplace / doing something they shouldn't've been...

Re: 1989 jeep comanche build thread

He stated that he was where he wasn't supposed to be, as WrenchMonkey pointed out, so read the post before you start shooting back please. I have issues with people going where they're not supposed to be because I have a 3-4 hour drive just to get to any trails for that reason, and they're talking about shutting those down to. A wise man once said,"Ignorance is bliss! But only to the ignorant."
Either way, you have a nice looking MJ and I'm looking forward to seeing an axle up front of it. When you shot the Rustoleum paint on it, how did you end up mixing it?
