1988 Comanche Restoration Project

Recommended Posts

Last week, I bought a 1988 Comanche Pioneer. It has the 4.0, AX15, 4wd. I intend on doing a full restoration over the next year. Some of the things it is going to need are:

- Tail Lights

- Long Bed (P.O. cut the bottom off of the back to prevent rubbing)

- Doors (a little rusty)

- Rear bumper

- Front Bumper

- Chrome Grille & Light Bezels

- Console

- Door Panels

- Various trim pieces

- Paint

- A/C Work

- And a lot more....

 

Please, if you have any parts for sale - feel free to let me know. I am in the market. Now on to the good stuff.....

 

Last week on the way home:

I honestly had no idea you could put the bumper on upside down :applause::applause::roflmao:

 

But really though, welcome to CC. Good luck with your (un)build!

Update on the Comanche Project:

 

Since my last post, I have done a lot. The interior has come a long way. Here are some before and after pictures. Some things to notice in the before pictures include the vice grip window crank, the igloo cooler dual-purpose console/speaker box, the melted vent phone holder, and the Radio Shack CB with no wiring lol. 

 

 

Before:
