Zone's Jeep Comanche MJ: Update IV (MJ Stripped, Engine Prepped)
With the Zone Offroad crew back at full strength and temperatures back down in the 70's the guys are picking up steam on Project MJ for this year's Ultimate Adventure. It has come time to pull the rest of the original drivetrain out of the MJ after 21 years and over 200,000 miles of reliable (we're assuming) service. After closer inspection the reason for the relatively rust free underside became apparent as every part of the old drivetrain leaked, causing a thick coating of grime to build up on all drivetrain components and underbody. Several cans of de-greaser, some quality time with the parts washer, and a little elbow grease later and we're on our way to having clean parts to swap over to our Golen 4.6L Stroker that just arrived. This new 4.6L will put out around 270hp and 320tq, a vast improvement over the factory 4.0L. Plenty of other projects going on around the shop, check back in the next couple days to see the new drivetrain and suspension. To watch the entire buildup, check out

Facebook at Instagram at This Kid in this Jeep Comanche wasn't scared to beat on it. There were a few time I thought for sure that he was about to roll it over. Thankfully he didn't since it didn't have a cage inside of it. Check Out BlueFire Outdoors for all your off road Lighting.
