1-Ton LSV8MJ

A 1988 Jeep Comanche MJ Short Bed build by @offroad_fabster

Received this truck as a wedding gift to tinker with. Started out as a 4-cylinder 2wd truck that didn't run. Has been a couple years in the making. All work has been done by me and about 95% of the truck was custom fabricated in my 2-car garage. Still a little ways to go and make it pretty
