Patches the '86 Rescue

Recommended Posts

Thanks to some generous help and friendly feedback from here and some of you in the Classifieds my 2 year project is nearing completion.

This poor 1986 short bed was found in Georgia as a mud truck with no interior and some questionable powertrain issues at 230K miles on the body.

I will add details and images as I can. We were just out in Silver Lake MI last week :)

There never was a '86 short bed. All '86s are long beds.


May want to check your title. Or run an accurate VIN decode.

That's a good question. Here's the original Ad from the previous owner:




VinWiki doesn't have much to say other than "1986 Jeep Comanche 4WD 6 Cylinders W 2.8L 2BL OHV"


The plot thickens :)

You likely have a '87 with an '86 build date. 


Also, '86 only came with the 2.5 or 2.8 engine, 4.0 did not come until '87.
