1990 Jeep Comanche 6cyl 4x4 shortbed SOLID
1990 Jeep Comanche short bed, 4X4, 4 liter, a/t.
Selling my 1990 Comanche. Hate to do it, but I have more cars than I have the space for, so somethings got to go.
I bought this truck last summer and have invested a lot of money into it to make it run and drive well. The previous owner was going to restore the truck, so he tore it all apart, and spent probably around $4-5k building a stroker motor for it. (He spent $1600 on the stage II ported head and cam alone!) After dumping all kinds of money into the motor, he burned out on the project. I bought it as a running truck, though the motor needed lots of tuning and dialing in. Since purchasing it, I've had the drivetrain gone through entirely, had the brakes gone through, went through the axles and t-case, fixed a bunch of drivability issues, and generally gone through the truck and cleaned it. Every belt, seal and gasket is new, as is the battery. Now it runs great, and is surprisingly peppy! I have a stock XJ Cherokee as well and the difference between the two is definitely noticeable. It's got a Rusty's 3 inch lift with ROR300 coils, and RX100 Shocks front and rear, and new rear leaf packs with extended shackles to ensure the truck sits nice and straight. It sits on steel 15 inch wheels, wrapped in 31/10.5R15 BF Goodrich all-terrain tires.
The body on this truck is super solid. It's straighter than anything you will find in the rust belt. It came up from Florida, and is solid as a rock! (See pics.) Despite being virtually rust free it does have some dents, dings, knicks, and bruises, (see pics!) though it wears its scuffs well, like an old work truck should. The paint is original and thin, so its dull, but isn't hiding anything. I converted the nose sheet metal to a 97-01 Cherokee, to give the vehicle a bit different/newer generation appearance. I replaced the windshield in the fall as well.
Inside everything works: gauges, wipers, lights, etc, and it's got a CD/iphone ready/satellite/touchscreen super-fancy stereo that the previous owner installed which aside from using the CD player, I know squat about. Other than that, it's a pretty basic interior with a bench set, roll windows, and carpet delete vinyl floormat.
Altogether the truck is a solid, non-rusty driver with a brand-new motor. It runs great, stops/shifts well, and is turnkey. It looks weathered in the right places, (She ain't a show truck by any means) which I personally like.
Most of the time, if you find a surviving Comanche at all, it'd be 2wd, a long bed or a 4 cylinder, so this got the right combo of parts and pieces, being the harder to find short box, 4wd, 4 liter. Combine that with the built motor and the super solid body and this is a rare bird indeed. Would be an awesome ride if you want to take the next step and have it painted, or if you're like me, you might dig the old work truck vibe of it, and drive it as is, knowing that it's brand new where it counts.
