"I bought my 1992 comanche not really sure about it but it was priced right. I was impressed at its durability and power. Owned for 4yrs now and not 1 problem, drives fantastic in the snow/rain and meets all my truck needs. A ton of torque for a midsize and will climb a tree if needed. Im now a comanche lover and have been looking for another for my son as he wants mine ( not happening )."
"I got my first 1988 comanche as my first vechile in 1998. I have driven it everywhere from Ohio to Colorado several times and from Columbus to Cleveland many more times. I recently bought another one a 1989 for parts. I don't want to take it apart though because it runs great also. The parts I need mainly a front axle is because I wrecked it. I totaled the car I hit and only had to reattache my wheel and replace a fender. Love them Jeeps"
"My sister gave me this ugly green duckling she called "Gumby" a few years ago and I figured I'd drive it into the ground. Only problem is: it won't die.
My Comanche only left me stranded once (alternator) and that was because I ignored the check engine light for a few weeks. Another time the truck randomly stalled but a tune up fixed that.
Most people either love it or hate it right off the bat. In my experience the women in my family HATE this truck and have a personal vendetta against it.
But the kids can't wait to ride up front with Dad and beep the horn. Because it's not the prettiest truck around, I don't mind letting friends/neighbors borrow it. RWD with 6 cyl. 4.0 engine runs strong."
"The Comanche has a great frame/platform for off-roading, with excellent suspension & powertrain, particularly if equipped with the Dana 44 rear axle. Ours is a 1990 that has been all over the USA, including across the Rubicon Trail without a lift-kit (also w/o the oem rear bumper...Smittybilt) but with Rancho 5000's. Nothing exotic on a great truck."
"I bought this great Jeep truck as second owner in '05 for 600.00 It is 6 cylinder 4x4 and has a 5 speed trans.
It made a loud squealing sound and the windshield visor clip broke on the way home. The ride and power seamed really good for the year and felt almost like new. Even though the faded red paint, torn headliner, ripped drivers seats and the badly dented bed, missing tailgate, and weathered 15" tires, I still think it was one of the best buys I ever made!
The squealing noise turned out to be a clogged sock screen in side the gas tank. I fixed it and the sound went away for good. I added 16' wheels and all terrain tires and it has helped improved the ride. I'll raise it up 3 or 4 inches and change the shocks which will improve it even more. This truck is is quick and tight and has the factory roll bar that really adds to it looks. I am slowly getting all the things fixed on it. One day I will finish it the way I want it and I know now that I would never sell it. I worked at this Docs house and he keeped asking me to sell it. He finally offer to trade his nice but older BMW car for it. His car is worth at least 5k. That was a hard one to pass up let me tell ya! A Pittsburgh guy who is a collector offered 2200 the way it sets. Whats funny about that is it books out at 16-1800. I guess some people just know a good thing when they see one!"
"best darn vehicle ive ever owned, goes through anything, reliable, and just over all a great truck, i have the 2,5, we overhauled it, and now its better than ever, its only 2wd, but im gonna make it 4wd"
