1988 Jeep Comanche (Florida)


Recommended Posts

Well guys, sadly its come down to selling my MJ. I listed this several months ago when it was still being put together and now its a complete and driveable rig. Being completely honest I don't want to sell the rig but life seems to get in the way more often than not. Since ive acquired the Jeep ive torn into it and restored it back to being a nice rig. The Jeep has a host of new parts in it and I will list them below for you all. Now please, before you continue reading, understand that this MJ is completely rust free. The pictures will show this. The cab corners, bed, floors, and fenders are completely free of rust!

- Thoroughly cleaned under the wiper cowl and removed all leaves and debris

- Frame is spotless and was undercoated at some point in the Jeeps life

The Bad:


- Drivers side seat has a few tears in it. Seat covers were on the "to be ordered" list

- Dash has a split down the middle and I have refinished it black temporarily as I was going to replace it. You can either repair it, leave it or replace the dash pad.

- Doors need the upright window track seal for both sides (easy find at a yard)

- Center console hasnt been refinished black like the rest of the interior

- There are no visors in the Jeep but I will include the same headliner material for refinishing of new ones to match

- When first starting the Jeep it idles a bit rough but smooths out and runs perfect

- Tailgate needs paint, but its completely dent free and in mint condition


I am asking 4500$ for the Jeep OBO. Here are some pictures of the the work ive done, and what she is today. I will also consider trading for a late model XJ plus cash (on my end if needed or vice versa) if someone is interested. Guys, you know what the status of most MJ's are and this one is far outside of the realm of average! PM me or email me directly at tecronic at hotmail dot com for my contact info! Now onto the pictures! Keep in mind the MJ is a bit dirty as I didnt wash her before taking the pictures but she shines up nicely!


I will ship this Jeep anywhere in the country on the buyers dime and the buyer has to make the arrangements. I have no problem with doing this for the buyer.






























































The Comanche is located in the Tampa Bay are of Florida. I will also meet the purchaser, within reason, for a fee. Thanks for looking!

Wow - a lot of hard work into her. Very nice! A heavy hearted "good luck" with the sale, but I understand :cheers:

If you could ship it to Haiti I would gladly buy it. I NEED a truck down here and I sold my MJ to Automan2164.


The shipping would entirely be on the buyer. Plus I would not even know where to begin with doing that. Thanks,
