Zone Offroad’s 1990 Jeep Comanche, aka Project MJ made its way into the SpinTires video game hitting the trails and getting muddy. The modeling is spot on with the 1st Gen Project MJ styling from when it took on the 2011 Ultimate Adventure. If you’ve downloaded the Spin Tires game and enjoy spending your freetime behind the wheel of a truck or Jeep then this game might be worth checking out. If you’ve dreamt of wheeling Project MJ, this is your chance, if only electronically. You can add this vehicle to the game via the mod link here. Happy trails (even digital ones)!
The crew from Zone Offroad is in the final stages of prepping the rigs and displays for Easter Jeep Safari next week in Moab, UT. The annual event hosted by the Red Rock 4Wheelers Club brings thousands of Jeepers from around the country and beyond for a week of 4wheeling in the picturesque terrain.

On the MJ we installed a set of RCV shafts and a Factor 55 flatlink winch shackle. The
Zone took the short 3-hour trip this past weekend head north for the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. The weekend of fun in the sand was filled with 4WDs of all kinds (and some 2WDs) enjoying great mid-80s weather and 3000 acres of sand dunes to play on.

With easily hundreds of rigs out at the dunes there’s always something to check out, whether
It seems like deja vu, the MJ stripped down, parts strewn throughout the R&D shop, a quickly approaching deadline and long build list left to finish. After a 6 week scramble back in May-June to gather parts and build our 1990 Jeep Comanche in time for this year’s Ultimate Adventure, the rig, and its drivers, were put to the test during the week long journey traversing over 1000 miles, some half dozen trails, and scorching 100+ days. The trip gave the guys from Zone the opportunity to test out new prototype parts from a long arm suspension, skidplates, and bumpers
Project MJ Update V: The deadline to complete this build is fast approaching with just over a week until this ’90 Jeep Comanche is put to the test on the 2011 Ultimate Adventure. In the days since our last update many of the engine parts have been cleaned up and migrated over to the new Golen 4.6L Stroker before getting transplanted in the freshly painted engine bay. To get the full potential out of our new Stroker we’re using upgrading injectors, custom K&N intake, Pacesetter header, and DynoMax exhaust system.
