Damn that looks sharp. There's something about a more "classic" aluminum wheel on that body style, and it really sets your silver/grey color combo off perfectly. I'd have a hard time changing those clean lines by adding a light bar, but that's just me.

I couldn't put a light bar on my Comanche. The lines just aren't right. It looked alright on the roof rack of my 99 though

That looks awesome, congrats!

My upgrade for today was simple. A receiver hitch insert with D-ring shackle on it. Just a temporary tow strap location until I upgrade the rear bumper.

After work today went past Harbor Freight.
Needed a bearing puller.

Pulled a set of 3.55's from a parts Jay in the field yesterday, but needed to get bearings off for the shims, and this is going in the front tomorrow.

Detroit Tru-Trac I found it last year and been procratinating installing it.
The best limited slip option for a daily driver....


Then figure out how i want to do the rear.
options: D44 and put a Torgusen (like a tru-trac, have one of those too) in it. though the D44 was saving for the 96 model.
D35 stays in and add a trac-lok limited slip,
or lastly try to find a Exloder 8.8 with aLimited Slip and 3.55s.
but thats for another day...

Well the Comanche is no more, at least for now. May be able to rebuild her.

It's wrecked, it was 4 lanes wide, speed limit 60 mph, wreck on the far right side one lane blocked. I was cruising in the fast lane doing 50, the lane immediately to my right was cruising about the same. The lady in front of me saw the lights and the fire trucks and stopped dead in the fast lane and I hit her. There was no reason for her to stop, there was nothing in front of her, and nothing blocking the road. The damage is fixable, but I don't currently have the money or time to fix it. Bumper brackets were rusty and broke apart, bumper pushed into the fenders and bowed them, grill and header panel cracked, radiator busted, but as far as I can see no buckling of the frame or inner fenders or anything. I plan to fix it when I get the time/money.

Ouch. Very sorry to hear. It sounds like you are ok and thats what matters. On the plus side, when the time comes, at least you have a reason for a nice new aftermarket front bumper (maybe 97+ front end too!).
