I consider myself the Jeep medic. I find a Jeep in need of love and healing, bring it home, and begin a long process of restoring it. Last year I found a deer collision XJ that I rebuilt the front end and redid the entire interior. Since this is a Comanche and quite rare now I plan to keep this one around. This is going to be a complete tear down and rebuild. There is some light surface rust across the roof and hood. The rest of the body has only one small dent that a is a simple fix, a lightly dented bed corner hidden by the bed liner, and a small bulge on the bottom of the tail gate that will take me less than a minute to fix with a hammer. The under side of the cab and bed look to be rust free. I am expecting a bit of light surface rust under the carpets.
