JeepcoMJ Posted January 15, 2010 Share Posted January 15, 2010 This was the first comanche in my family...an '86 (longbed, of course) 4x4 with a Renault 2.1l turbo diesel, ax5 5 speed, np207 t-case, AMC20 rear axle, metric tonne with 4.10 gears. 10(ish) years ago when we got it, it wasn't too bad. My dad bought it from the original owner, and we even have all the window stickers and tags for it. When we got it, it had 102,000 miles on it and a blown timing belt...the owner had ignored the "suggested" advisory to replace the timing belt @ 89k miles, as per the factory service manual. end result, since it's an interference motor, was a few bent valves, some broken rockers, and $1000 in parts. not bad, though...the truck was $200. So, now it's rusty, and the frame has started to go what I will term "freakjeep", though I still believe he's got me one-upped. pics. battery is located on driver's side, rather than the typical pass. side. intercooler on the driver's side air filter canister and turbo gauge cluster boost gauge replaces the volt meter...unfortunate, but cool enough to justify it ugly blue interior very rusty bed. cab corners and floors are gone Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
