  1. I am actually not a big fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, nor any other bands with their type of vibe. But I cannot get enough of this compilation. This is my favorite form of rock. It's been my go-to lately when I'm working in the garage or around the house, especially when the wife isn't around and I can play it loud.
  2. I been browsing Bring a Trailer for years and years now. In the last year or two I am seeing a lot more Jeeps than I used to, specifically J10s, XJs, and MJs. It pleases me to see so many nicely-kept Jeeps getting out there. It's nice to see them bringing in pretty good bids too - the love of old Jeep isn't dead. But even some of these MJs and XJs aren't bringing in top dollar, which I attribute to this site not really being intended for the Jeep-types. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1991-jeep-comanche-3/ Just mentioning it in case this site isn't on the radar of t

  5. If it was a few years ago the truck is likely gone. But I would keep checking until you confirm that's the case. Even if it's in a salvage yard, probably 50% of it is now gone. Bummer. But the 2.8L wasn't the best engine either, so you'd be better off buying another one and fixing it up to match your grandfather's anyway.
  6. I know this is basic, well-known emissions test trick, so sorry if you already know about this :) . But have you tried driving it at highway speeds for like 45 minutes prior to testing? I only bring it up because my friend has an XJ with 2.8L V6 and he fails every two years for the exact same thing: "failed the tail pipe emissions inspection". Then he takes it on the highway for a bit, comes back, and passes. I don't know if it's legit, or just coincidence.
  7. The best of both worlds.... or the worst, rather!
  8. The Prestige. My favorite movie, mostly because of how much it messed with me. I still watch it every few years and it's still awesome, but nothing like the first time. I remember watching it with my family in our living room when I was in high school and when the final credits started rolling my whole family was in silence for a good 20 seconds... then my dad just says, "Wow."
  9. Take pictures of the underside and the frame, look for rust there too. Peel back the carpet and inspect the floor panels for rust. One of my MJs came from a beach town and much of the underside was rusted through. Like in Oregon, I don't think they salt the roads in Idaho (I still have family in Coeur d'Alene) and the Jeep and Comanche market is pretty solid up there.
  10. Sounds like you got a nice one. Where you live can have a big influence on what the market is like. Throw up some pics!
  11. It's a nice truck; maybe something to compete with the Tacoma that everybody and their brother is driving these days. But it'd be tough spending $50k on a new Jeep knowing what half that would do if it were spent on an MJ or J20 restoration. LOL. But you could say the same about any new car, I guess.
