Zone's Jeep Comanche MJ: Update III (Rollcage, etc.)
It's been hot in Michigan this week. But even with temperatures in the mid 90's, the crew at Zone Offroad has been busy building up Project MJ for the 2011 Ultimate Adventure. This week Dave and Carter take you through some of the new additions to the Comanche including the completed unibody plating, roll cage fabrication, rocker guards, interior modifications, and front axle strengthening. New parts are still arriving and in the next days and weeks we'll be swapping in the new stroker, building custom coilover suspension, and sending this thing off to paint. We apologize for the loud background noise around the shop, this project needs to stay on schedule and we didn't budget time for having them stop so we can make these updates.
