History: Purchased new in 1991 in Philadelphia, PA at Potamkin Auto Group.  New engine installed in 2012.  After a front end collision in 2013 in Corolla, NC, the truck was towed back to Philadelphia where it remained parked.  Sold to me in April 2019, moved to York, PA.  The cab roof has substantial rust, the front end needs collision work, and overall the electrical, vacuum and cooling systems are shot.  The AW4 transmission slips in reverse, and overall the truck needs a lot of work to get back to what it once was.  It does start and move under it's own power.

So I finally have an update on the Comanche! It's been interesting because I've had issues with a ton of things that I kept trying to do but I finally got it all straightened out. One of the things I ordered for the Comanche was four brand new tires since the old tires didn't hold air for more then a few days. Well when I was trying to take the old tires off, four of the lug nuts stripped and so two of the tires were stuck on the Comanche. While I was trying to get those off the truck sat for a bit since I've had to split my time between working full time and going to school full time. This took a while since I was trying to protect the stock wheels from any damage and the lug nuts were seized onto the wheels.


By the time I got all the new tires on, the engine didn't want to turn over. So began the process of working on the engine to get that running again. The main process was the engine would crank but wouldn't turn over. So my buddy and I started going through the engine checking parts to see if we could figure out what was wrong. We determined that the engine wasn't getting a spark. We ended up putting in a computer that slightly remedied the issue where we were getting a spark but the voltage was too low for the engine. So we started going through the engine again but couldn't find what could be the issue. My buddy had the idea that the first computer we put in the engine was faulty so we ordered another one and put it in. Lo and behold the first computer was faulty because we got the second computer in and it started right up.


So now the Jeep is back up and running. We threw a bunch of parts into the Jeep to help eliminate any possible issues. We deep cleaned the interior with a shampoo vacuum cleaner and oh boy was there some dirt that came out of those seats. Next on the list is to redo the brakes all the way around and then to look at the front end since the steering is a bit loose to put it lightly.
