#ProjectPineTree Phase 2


So as this is the 1st post for the new Jeep Comanche MJ project I will do my best to bring you up to speed.

I got this from an Uncle of a friend. He Shot me the deal and I went to pick it up. It is an 87 pioneer, 4.0, with the BA10 5 speed trans and an NP231j for the 4x4.

It had been sitting for a few years as it lost spark on the previous owner. He lost interest in the project and wanted to sell it. It had been in the back 40, under the trees for a while... By the time I got everything cleaned up the dumpster was full of pine tree. The name was obvious.

This was intended to be our Gambler 500 build for 2019. we pulled it off! Got her running, converted the closed cooling system over to open, and gave her a few "Gambler Things"

During the gambler we blew the internal slave, I had to drive it home power shifting, it made it no worries.

So I ordered the slave, a new clutch, and pressure plate. My son helped me replace it, and bleed the system. We also de-gambler'd the rig a bit, took some goods off and cleaned it up a bit. i had a super cool side exit exhaust for the gambler, having to fix it after and make it more proper, i though, the side exit had to stay. This is what i came up with.
