Bought a Comanche

I bought an '86 last Saturday. The previous owner built it up pretty nice then let it sit for several years. Longbed, 4x4, 2.5l, 4 speed.

The good:
TJ Dana 30 front with Lockright and 4.88 gears
Ford 8.8 rear with Detroit, disk brakes, and 4.88 gears
4 inch lift
Ramsey 8000 winch
Custom front and rear bumpers
Tool box full of trail spares and recovery gear
Engine was rebuilt(before it sat for years)

The bad:
Interior is trashed
Rust hole in drivers floorboard
Hood has surface rust
Radiator is bad
Has oil leak around distributer
No keys
Heater core leaks
No power steering

I got a great deal on it. It will be used as my primary wheeler and for hauling stuff around town. I've had 2 XJs, a CJ5, a CJ7, and currently have a TJ. But I really don't know a lot about the MJs. So i'm sure i'll have a lot of questions.

Sorry, no pics yet. We picked it up and off loaded it in my friends barn until I can get a radiator and key.

Yeah, it's set up pretty well. Most of my work is going to be undoing the damage caused by letting it sit for years.
