well, it is 2wd for now. its main use is gonna be haulin wood or movin animals around, but i know myself too well. first i am gonna put it together and try to make it look a little better, ex. bumpers, sand it down, remove rust then repaint, get matching rubber all the way around, new tailgate. with time i want to do a 4wd conversion with a small lift, nothing crazy, just enough to do 31's or 33's. if i do 33's then i can swap tires with my wife's zj to make her mad. she is getting new rims next year, so i will prrobably just put hers on mine with new rubber. i am gonna get the clear side markers in the future also.

I can't see through the bed so its already better than 99% of the remaining comanches around here. I think there are only 2 or 3 in the surrounding 6 towns.

The interior doesn't look too bad at all. You could probably find a nice seat at a junkyard.

well, i took it to town for a much needed oil change. oil was pitch black with a orange can of death. changed the oil, no leaks bled the brakes, now they work better. pulled it off the pit, still good. get out to open the gate and the filter is spewing oil. i have been told the gasket probably broke off the old filter or the new filter is bad. guess that means i get to put a ford filter on her. oh, i also found out what happens when you mount a headlight upside down
