Submariner So this has been sitting for 4 or 5 years. Has 135k on the odometer. I figure I will need to dump the tank and flush it out as well and flush the fuel lines. anyone know how to clean out the fuel injectors or does this have a carb. I will need to go thur the whole thing to make sure it is up and going.

desbennett004 Before.
After. Not fancy, but cheap, sealed, and it won't rust again.

Submariner For $600, I can repair a rust issue in a floor pan as long as it is not in the frame. I will keep you appraised of the situation and pictures after Tuesday when I bring it home. I am looking forward to a little project for the winter. We have a big swap meet up here in Washington in the middle of March.

desbennett004 I have an 89 with the 4.0l, converting to 4x4 is easy, pretty much just a bolt in affair. Not sure if the 4 cylinder / 4 speed complicates that. If you are looking to do an engine swap, I would buy a donor Jeep with axles, transmission, motor, interior, body panels, etc etc etc and just swap over what you want and part out/ scrap the rest. I would pull up the carpet on your MJ and check the floor pans for rust. Mine had no rust anywhere, except the drivers floor pan was rusted out.

buying a 89 comanche, what can you tell me about it.

I am going down to pick up a non-running 89 Comanche on Tuesday. $600 has a 4 cylinder with a 4 sp, rwd. I have been told it will run if you use starting fluid but won't stay running.

the body seems to be in desent shape, has a ding in the rear corner. minor hit. interior looks ok.

So my questions are:

What rear end will it have?

How hard will it be to make it a 4wd?

Swap out the engine, it has 135K on the that is in it now.

Any suggestions on other things to do to it.

Thanks for any input.
