Well it was time to give the comanche some new paint.

Step 1.) Go get it all muddy so i can spend forever at the car wash in sub freezing temperatures



Step 2.) Get it all sanded and do some body work...I don't really care about dents so there was no bondo work but we did push out some dents on the passenger side



Step 3. ) Get it all masked and cleaned up



Step 4.) Squirt some primer on



Step 5.) Squirt some red paint on it



Now, i gotta let it dry afew days then we'll do some more masking and give it some black goodness. Once the body is done then i'll get the bed all sanded down and rattle can it with some good rustoleum (The body is good haliburton red paint). I'm figuring that the bed is going to get a fair amount of rock rash so if i paint it with rattle can then it'll be easy to touch up later.

Alright, so today we got all the stripes and stuff masked off







Then my dad sprayed some black paint on there

We peeled off the masking and here's the outcome.

Love the truck man. Makes me miss my MJ but could never keep the transmission in it. Damn Peugeot transmissions. I will have to try and find another one some day.

The panels will be aluminum, but painted red. (No diamond plate)

Alright, Just finished up all the panel templates.








Also started to get tabs layed out







I plan on getting the tabs welded on and the tube painted tomorrow. Then work on getting panels cut and painted over the following week.

So, we got the bed painted but I didn't weld on tabs or cut out body panels.
It got a nice epoxy primer and rattle canned it with black rustoleum so its easy to touch up.

Instead of working on it all break, I decided to wheel.

First trail was Billings Canyon
























Then went and ran tabeguache on monday (Was wheelin with my friends, they had stockish rigs)







Hit up 21 road today (wednesday)





Ooops

Yea, I think the trail is cursed...seems like someone always breaks when we go in there.

So, I got some 40" mtr's for my jeep...and i can't decide what todo with my front axle.

Right now I'm running spicer joints, G2 chromoly stub shafts and unknown brand chromoly inner shafts.

I trashed one of my inner shafts when I broke a u-joint acouple years ago, the u-joint cap has a very loose fit in one of the ears...I've been rocking it and just filled the gap full of green loctite.

So, I'm debating
1.) Get RCV's for $1400
2.) Get a whole new set of chrom shafts and good joints (CTM's or Longfields) $1000
3.) Just get some better joints (CTM's or Longfields) $350
4.) Swap in a dana 60 (Lots of money and work...and I lack the proper tools)


Right now, I'm thinking to just get the better joints and swap in a 60 down the road

Well, I've been uber busy the past couple months and haven't had a chance to update or do any major wheelin. But we did go out yesterday to the trail system by central city, mainly just a bunch of bumpy roads but I did stop out by an outcropping I know of for some poser pics.

As you may notice, there's a set of 40" old style MTR's mounted up. I had to trim a couple inches off the front fenders and sliders, it still rubs alittle on the inner fender wells though.









I also bought a pair of Corbeau Baja XP seats to replace the old worn out bench seat I have. Unfortunately, Instead of spending $200 On mounting brackets I'm just going to buy some tube and build an internal cage to mount them to. BUT, I probably won't get around to building a cage for a couple months.

Nice beefy upgrade, I just curious why you didn't run the slip joint up by the t-case to keep it out of harms way?
