Project MJ Update V.5: Drivetrain Install, Suspension, Cage complete, Body Mods
We can see the light at the end of tunnel as Zone nears the end of week 5 of this 6 week buildup to prepare our ’90 Jeep Comanche MJ for the Petersen’s 4Wheel & Offroad Ultimate Adventure (UA). The days are getting longer as the guys rush to finish this Jeep by D-Day. For the first time in 5 weeks the Jeep is finally on the ground and off the hoist. In the video, Zone Reps Dave and Carter bring you up to speed on the progress made so far by the build team and try their best to cover the hosting duties after a week of wrenching with limited sleep. To recap yesterday’s blog post, the engine and drivetrain are in, suspension bolted in, roll cage completed, axles in place, and fuel cell and batteries are mounted. Currently the guys are dropping it off for fresh paint by M& M Body Shop over the weekend so we can have it back in time to go crazy on it next week and have it completed in time to leave Thursday/Friday for the UA.
