    thanks man!

    here are the 2 pictures I took

    here is the crappy nasty headliner! It looked and felt flimsy on the edges but was surprisingly sturdy.


    With out the headliner in


    Tomorrow I'll take off the bed liner and clean out the interior a little bit sense it could use some love too

    I got my bedliner off today and took a couple pictures of my broken leaf spring

    before


    took off the toolbox and saw that it was original MJ bedliner which is cool cause I was playing on just tossing it

    the sides of the truck you can see how much the bedliner has come up instead of laying flat on the truck

    here it is with everything off just needs to be swept and taken to the car wash


    after taking the bedliner off I found 2 of these holes locate near the cab anyone know what they are for? Roll bar?

    No bedliner nor tool box. Will but the tool box back on eventually. I will admit I do like the look better with the bedliner with the black and white but I will eventually put some real bedliner

    pictures of the broken leafs. I have been here some sounds driving around going over bumps and such. I new something was loose or broken but couldn't figure out. Looked under one day and saw that the drivers side leaf was snapped in the middle. I believe it was from running sevenmile creek on June 1st but I could be wrong

    good picture

    not so good picture

    Sucks to hear about your leaf spring! At least you should be able to find replacements pretty easy. Great to see the beds still in good shape under the liner. Im not sure what your holes are for, but I know for other makes and models, there are occasionally tie down points underneath some rubber grommets. At least that is how it is on Kateys Dakaota. Odd thing is, one side has the tie down, the other one doesnt.

    Yeah the leaf spring is holding up fine just don't want to take it off road til it is replaced. When I was taking off the bed I was hoping for the best but expecting the worst and I guess it turned out all good.

    The bed looks fantastic! Ouch, broken spring! I think those holes are for a roll bar, or headache rack. edit: my J-20 has the same deal, only I have the roll bar!

    I'll update everyone on my lift situation. So after thinking about the lift, discussing it with my parents and crunching the numbers I have decide not to go with the SOA. Reasons being is that after figuring out the total cost of the lift being well over $700 possibly $800 including taxes a shipping I would be able to afford it but have little to no money left over. Next was the tires my wrangler A/Ts are fairly new and with the large amount of lift my truck would look ridiculous! With that being said I could always replace them for larger tires but with all the money spent on the lift I wouldn't be able to afford even a decent pair of 31s used. Next is that I'm going off to college soon and I'm looking primary outta state (not to far away though) and the Comanche being well over 20 years old will need a tune up. Replace parts that should be replaced ever so often and other things especially the transmission (really low idle has been really pissing me off lately). With the lift I probably wouldn't be able to afford a very decent tune up along with tires. Yes I do have a job which pays a solid $8 and hour and the football season and school rolling around the corner my hours will be seriously diminished. Once football dies down I will be working a little bit more but probably not much to make a decent amount of money. I'm pretty bummed about this decision but in my opinion it is probably the best thing to do right now. So for a lift I decide to do something small and fairly cheap which I could run stock size tires and not have to worry about replacing a whole lot with other parts. I decided on doing the front with ZJ coils for about 1-1.75" and the rear with an add a leaf for about 1-1.75". I feel this will give me a little more ground clearance and a more aggressive look for the time being until the time comes to do the SOA.

    Probably a smart decision since you can quickly incur costs that were not previously considered. Do solid maintenance and when you do have to replace parts, use an upgraded part. One common part that comes to mind is ball joints. Replace the factory ones with some from Synergy Manufacturing. Sintered metal joints instead of plastic liners for a much longer life.

    Dante, at least you have the mind to think before you buy, this is a lesson most high school kids don't even think about, they just want to look cool and then be broke! Sounds like you have great parents too!! Remember for tires check out Treadwrights!

    Bigger lift doesn't mean you have to get bigger tires though. I ran my Jeep for over a year with 3.5 inch lift on 235s. Looked a little funny but financially couldn't do it. If you plan on going bigger I suggest you figure out how much lift you want and get what you want first. If you put a 2 inch lift on and then decide you want a bigger lift you will have wasted the money on the smaller lift and then have to try and sell old stuff to make money back and you always end up losing a little that way. If the SOA is what you want, save pennies and get er done. Good luck with things, you'll make the decision that works best for you.

    Smart man to live within your means. Might be worth it just to get it up to par again, and keep saving a way for the dream lift.
