New Member, New Ride, Need Help

What's up Jeep peeps. I just bought a 1986 Comanche, 2.5, 2wd, 4spd longbed. The truck is in pretty good condition. The body and interior is almost spotless, but the motor needs a little help. First thing I noticed was that the intake duct, which is basically some black slinky looking crap is all torn up. I know that this can't be good for the engine. I tried looking for some aftermarket CAI's and didn't really find anything, and I tried looking for the original intake duct and didn't find anything either. What can I do or use or buy to correct this issue. I don't feel like its a good idea to drive the truck if it could possibly suck in dirt, water or old intake duct crap into the throttle body. Help me please.

Autozone and Advance carry parts that you can use to piece together a custom intake. If that's the route you want to go. Try posting up on Comancheclub.com in the wanted section if you want to go back with a factory style.

BTW. I'm in Dawsonville and have two Comanches. One of which is also a '86 2.5 4x4.

Here is an example of an intake pieced together from Autozone parts. http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1100087

It's a 4.0l in the post but it should give you an idea of what you need.
