I purchased this truck new after shopping just about all other trucks available - never a regret. It's a blast to drive, handles and rides great and as well has all the juice you could need when you need it. These trucks flat out run. It's climbed rough and rocky terrain with hills so steep my friends wouldn't ride with me even after having gone up and down a number of times. A friend named the steepest slope on his TN mountain "Comanche Hill" he and others were so amazed. They thought I was crazy, but I never doubted its ability. While clearing trees it pulled the front-end off the ground and finally tore the bumper brackets in half; it never quit or ran out of power!
Power, handling, ride and shift on fly are all tops.
Could use a little more leg room for tall drivers - but is adequate. Needs heavier bumpers, not designed very strong and can't take much of an impact. Light in the rear for the torque and power of the truck - posi-track and heavier differentials would be a plus. Bigger/better tires help.
i own a 1991 jeep comanche pickup, i
bought it stock for $4000 in 1999. I
turned 16 in 2002 and upgraded it to a
4wd, with a new transmission and
transfer case. I also gave it a 6"
lift kit and many off-road accessories
including fiberglass fenders and 34"
tires. I have always enjoyed this
truck and my friends seem to like it
too, not only is it fast, but it
catches eyes because there are still
people who dont know what a comanche
I like the engine. The inline 6-
cylinder 4 litre engine puts out as
much power as is needed by a small
truck, granted that mine isn't small
anymore. I also like the small size
of the cab, everything i need is right
there nest to me and everything i dont
I broke a radiator hose last winter
and didnt know anything was wrong
until I was forced to pull over on the
side of the highway because my engine
was smoking, if the "dummy lights"
were replaced with guages, then i
wouldn't have been so surprised when
