Lift kit advice and other questions. new Comanche owner
 
Hey I bought a 1989 Comanche about 8 months ago and now I'm planning on lifting it I would like to know what's the best lift kit for the Comanche? Should I buy one off the internet or build a custom one myself? If I should buy one online what website would you guys recomend? And how much will it run me? I want to be able to fit 33s or 35s under it. Also I would like to hear your guys input on the 10/5 puegot transmission, I don't think it can handle the power behind the 4.0 and it randomly won't go into gear sometimes and I want to g
Replace it possibly if it keeps being a pile. I just would like some advice please. I would love a input on any of my questions. Thank you

That is a really awesome link you posted... it should be stickied in this category.

I don't know how much lift OP is looking for, but I have a general question. If the Rubicon Express 5.5" Coil Springs were to be swapped with some Rusty's Offroad 8" coils, (and longer shackles / blocks) in the rear, what changes would be expected from that list? Thanks.

I dont know enough about it to give you an accurate answer, but if you want to know simply put your question at the bottom of said link. ComancheClub is a place you guys need to get familar with.

I started with a 4.0, B/A-10, 2wd. I got an AX-15, NP231, and a Dana 30 front axles, and installed them. Everything bolted up, and it was $600, plus I got all the small hardware. Zone 4.5 J29 lift kit, and 35's will fit. Bing bang boom done. With that you'll be fine. I am doing all the work my self, and it's going smooth and easy. So 2wd to 4wd and lifted with about $1350 invested.

Thanks NYtrailrider! Checked out the lift kit and I think that's the one I'm gunna get. This summer I will put the lift on and put on some 33s. I will post my build on here for sure

Anyway to tell if my comanche has been lifted?
 
It has rough country shocks on the back and what looks like bilsteins in the front. Any way to tell by looking at the rear leafs and front coils?

Looks good. What paint is that?

NYTrailrider 04-08-2013 08:46 PM

Krylon OD Camo, needs touched up for sure, but looks great when freshly applied
