1990 Jeep Comanche Eliminator 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I bought my comanche with just under 200,000 miles for $1,700. I put about 5000 miles on it an then sold it. It was a good little truck, easy to work on, good power and unique. If you can find one at a good price I would buy another. Just make sure there is not a cracked exhuast manifold as they are prone to that.


Favorite Features

Power, 4x4, unique body


Suggested Improvements

1990 Jeep Comanche Eliminator 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB


Review

When I got the truck (91K miles)it could not pass emissions. Replaced a sensor no problem. I knew it needed work it had been parked for 5 years.I have put about $1,500 in it including tires. It has been reliable since then. It has more power that most people will ever need and has good manners for a truck. The payload is amazing for a compact, I load it with green firewood up to the rails and it still drives fine. Most half ton trucks would not take it. If you get this truck shop for an aluminum pressure tank to replace the plastic anti-freeze tank. look at the Comanche web sites. One club is exceptional and helpful. If you do a search for it you will find it.


Favorite Features

Lots of tork on the bottom end and quick on the top end. Despite being a compact P/U you can actually haul something with it.


Suggested Improvements

First bring it back! Then make the cab a bit longer. Add cup holders. Get rid of the plastic Anti-freeze pressure vessel. (A Renolt hold over.)

1990 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

I absolutely love my little truck. The fact that they are hard to find is the best part. My truck is the 2wd pioneer 6 cylinder. I read an article one time saying there were only 350 made. The bad part is the 2wd won't pull itself out of wet grass. I bought the truck thinking "it's a jeep, it'll go anywhere"and was disappointed but after driving it for only a couple weeks i fell in love. I have had many offers and still refuse to let go of her. She gets washed once a week and the inside gets a full detail once a month. This truck gets drove to 30 miles to work everyday and 30 miles home everyday. Most dependable vehicle I have ever owned.


Favorite Features

The paint job. All original, dark blue on light blue with pioneer down the side.


Suggested Improvements

Next time make the all 4 wheel drive.

Review

I had a Jeep Comanche as my first car. Despite the fact it had obviously been badly cared for before I bought it, it was fairly reliable. I never had any problems with engine or transmission, but it consistently leaked power steering fluid despite multiple attempts to repair it. I really liked the power of the I6 4 liter engine; I was also impressed with the durability. When I swerved to miss a deer and went through a small (12 inch diameter) tree, the frame was undamaged (although the grill and bumper were destroyed) and the truck was fully drivable after I replaced the headlights. It lasted until the clutch slave cylinder went out, which requires the removal of the engine to replace.


Favorite Features

Durability, power.


Suggested Improvements

Clutch slave cylinder is too difficult to replace.

Review

This truck is a destined to become a classic because of how rare it is. I have driven the truck as a commuter and as a recreational vehicle. Its handling and ground clearance off road and four-wheel drive capabilities continue to amaze me. I have have done routine maintainace regularly and replaced the rear main seal. It is reliable and great off road. I would like to put a lift and bigger tires on it but as is it wheels great.


Favorite Features

The four-wheel drive and the engine are my favorite features. However, the after market kenwood CD player is nice too.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger tires and a lift on the truck would be great but not necessary. Maybe if i come across some money I'd do it but is very capable as is.
