ajamison's backwoods comanche build

just traded my 1 ton yj this morning for my newest project...

its a '91 MJ that so far has been turning heads here around town. this is my 7th jeep that i've owned in the past 6 years. im a firm supporter of built not bought but let me tell ya what, after this many jeeps it doesnt make a difference. i know y'all are gonna bag on me for getting rid of the yj on 40's and with a dana 60/14bolt, full hydro, yada yada yada. but in all reality, it was more fun building that jeep than wheeling it. it took the challenge away from wheeling. the hassle of trailering to the offroad park, and not being able to drive my jeep on the street drove me to the decision of getting rid of it

with that being said, the plan for this build (is it really a build since its already built?) is to create an expedition jeep that is a drive anywhere do anything jeep, with the most important aspect being that i plan to drive the jeep to the trails (with occasional exceptions of it being a trailer queen).

I've got a firm building platform, 4.0L/5 speed, something like 5 inches of lift, fresh long arms, bumpers & armor, 4:1 teralow, and decent 33s.

anyways here is what i will be working with.. more details later. let me know what y'all think!!!





and incase y'all missed it, heres my old YJ on the trailer this morning before i headed up to make the trade...

It's got a 30 front and 44 rear. The 30 has 4.10s and the rear has some oddball 3.29 gear set in it. I have a 4.10 r&p for it, and 4.88s for the whole jeep. I think I'll probably just do 4.10 in the rear to keep highway drivability. It's got a bunch of arb stuff, pretty much everything but the lockers lol

Going with Aussies front and rear? That should make it interesting in the snow...

im not worried, lockers do not hinder the jeep's capability in the snow, a drivers lack of experience hinders the jeep's capability in the snow

Nice MJ man. Welcome to the club! I'd be swapping those leaf springs out for stock springs and put them over axle. You'll have about the same amount of lift, more flex and better ride. just my 2 cents. but yeah will be keeping a close eye on this one. Keep up the good work!
