Yes, I will be painting it red, same color as my Wrangler. I love me some Flame Red Jeeps!

I did check out comanche club, but when I tried to join it said a mod had to activate me and would send me an email confirmation. I never got that confirmation.

Have a couple of updates and a bunch of pictures, so I will try to blast through those some time today.


at least you will be painting it the right color

I've been totally focused on my Wrangler the past couple of weeks overhauling it's suspension so I havent done much with the Comanche. In fact, untill today it had been sitting in my garage the whole time. I would have been driving while my Wrangler was out of commission, but I've had quite a bit of rain lately. Why does that matter? Well, the drivers side window would not roll up... I finally was able to devote half a day to working on it today!

I pulled the door panel off, but I couldnt find anything obvious that was wrong with, so I just decided to replace the whole window regulator thing. Took me a while to get the working one out of the parts comanche, but after learning from that everything went much smoother. Now I can start driving it again!

Next on the list is fixing the AC/heat. For now Im assuming its the blower motor since neither of them work. I dont mind not having AC, but winter is just around the corner and Im gonna nead heat.

Subscribed. I think you should keep the bench, maybe just pickup a newer model with the headrests. I picked this one up in in Salisbury off Craigslist.



Recovered.

I probably will keep the bench seat if I can figure out a way to mmount some cup holders. That is the biggest problem I have with the bench seat. It would be a waste of time/money to find a newer bench seats since the current bench seat is in such good condition. I don't need headreasts that badly. I'm trying to keep this Comanche as low cost as possible forthe time being. It will always come second to my Wrangler.

I read through your Wrangler build and I can see why the MJ could be even a distant second. I only suggested the a bench with headrests because it's a little more comfortable and it'll keep your head out of the back glass in a rear collision. Either way, I'm enjoying both of the the builds, keep up the good work.

I never noticed you had a build thread for this rig. I've recently developed a liking for the MJ's and I would love to build one myself (a shortbed though).
