Old Jeeper but new to Comanche

Recommended Posts

I second that, the unifram rails are thin, so what seems like surface rust can actually be a bad case of frame rot.

Water leaks are common in the cab, so rusted floor boards are as well.

Rocker rust is always nasty

doors/fenders and everything forward of the firewall is cherokee parts, so don't be afraid o some light front end damage.

Bed parts are nearly impossible to find, junkyard only. Above the rear fenderwells is another popular rust place.


If it's an 87-89 with the 4.0 and a 5spd check the trans, it may still be the original puegot trans, it's a POS and should never have been put behind the 4.0 It's a french light duty car trans.
