Got the brake lines done today, thats about it. My main goal right now is to get the rest of the stuff I need off the Cherokee donor and get it off to scrap so I can have more space in the garage and use the money from that to go towards gears for my red Cherokee. So I probably won't get too much done on the manche this week. Unless its just throwing the rest of the dash panels on.

Say, does that donor XJ have good taillights? I'm in the market for a new pair.

I pulled the doors off the XJ today. Most of the 97+ threads I read people are making new backing plates for the striker . I really don't want to go through more work then I have to so I just pulled the factory plate out. I noticed that the backing plate moved very loosely for adjustment. So after looking a bit I found that it was just a little tab holding it in. So I drilled a hole in the B-piller about where the back of the striker was. stuck a screw driver in, bent the tab and after a little wiggling of the backing plate it just fell out.

Got the dash put back together today. Will be going the JY some time in the future to get the lower ends of that dash so its all grey. Still working out the harness. Ive already figured out what out of the harness I need and what I dont its just cutting and adding to make it work in that small cab that is frustrating me. Cause I really don't want a bunch of harness piled up in the back. I'll some how work it out the way I want it. Also cleaned out the truck bed and through all the parts I had back there in the cherokee that I'll probably be junking sometime this week.

Well junked the donor today. now I'll be able to have more room in the garage to work on the Comanche. Cherokee came to a weight of 3,880 lbs. with all I had piled in.

Right before I took it:
