89 Comanche, Project "Eliminator"

new to JF.

started with this


then had it painted


then put a 6.5in front lift and 4.5in rear lift and some 33s and a winch


then that wasnt cool enough so i SOA'd the rear and built some rock rails


then i wheeled it a few times


then that still wasnt cool enough so i had a rear bumper built, made my own long arm 4-link, put some bilstein 5150s, JCR offroad OTK, and AA SYE





still have to put on some limiting straps and make a steering box brace

My god would I love a MJ. I think they're so badass. Throw a 97+ front clip on, paint it black, do all the things you would do to an xj, and take the doors off. So badass. Keep it up.

Great looking MJ! Have you braced the frame around the steering box on the outside, and replaced the spacer on the inside yet?
