88 Comanche questions

$600
130k miles
4 cyl
4 speed
4x4
shortbed

was just wondering if this would be a good truck for winter, dumpruns, and mabey in the future some light offroading.

please post any comments you have or suggestions

Reason why its in swb is because its still a jeep and no one is in the MWB

"88 Comanche questions"

Title says it all...My ex had an 88 2x4 with the 4cyl auto..It was a great truck. Seemed to have plenty of power and good mpg's

Re: 88 Comanche questions

the reason i asked year, before someone pointed out my blindness.....was that up untill 1989 they used the peugot trans behind the 4 cyl.....

and thats bad, but those were 5 spds......i dont think 4 speeds was a factory option then? 4 speeds went outta style in 86

thats allllll i got, hope it was moderatly informative

Re: 88 Comanche questions

mabey the guy replaced the tranny then? the reason why the guy is stilling it so low is because he bought a new truck and because he has no room for it. i just figured this would be pretty good to replace my friends 1989 2wd ford ranger... its pretty cheap if you ask me.

thanks for the help.

Re: 88 Comanche questions

Nice little truck. I wouldn't think adding PS would be to hard. Pump and brackets, pulleys, belt, hoses, and gearbox. Find a donor XJ or another Comanche at a salvage.

Re: 88 Comanche questions

The gear box and pump can be from a 4 or 6 but the pulley's and brackets will need to be from a 4 cly.
