Where / How often do you see Comanches?

Recommended Posts

I feel like I must be blind since besides my own I havent seen another MJ since August... :confused:. Being in Colorado I would expect a decent amount. I remember back when I first saw one I was a huge XJ fan and didn't even know what a Comanche was, and I thought, "What knucklehead would grind off the back of their XJ to make a pickup?" So anyways I've been on the hunt for an MJ since then, how often / where do you typically see Comanches? (Meetups excluded)

There is one other one in my area. A black and yellow one. I've seen it twice since I bought mine 2 months ago, but have no idea who owns it. I was told there was a green one recently but the owner passed away a little over a year ago and it disappeared shortly after.

Not often. Besides the two members I’ve met from here I see about two to five a year. Sometimes it’s the same MJ I have seen once before.

Besides the one in my driveway, I've seen about three or four around me (Frederick MD).

Every day. They aren't rare, I have 2 of them in my driveway! :))

 

In the wild (and not counting Jeep gatherings), not many at all. A single digit number in the last year, for sure. I did see a really clean red HO longbed in Tullahoma, TN a couple of weeks ago as I was coming home from a junkyard. The ones I used to see regularly around town, I haven't seen at all recently. I'm even starting to see less 97+ XJs, and clean 96- XJs are starting to get downright uncommon :(

Whats bad is these trucks are literally hidden in the most remote areas too. I can tell yall right know where a black one is in the middle of Nevada just sitting in someone's yard with about 20 truck camper shells on other peoples properties. 

 

So MJ's are out there, they are just hidden.

I have three and the funny thing is my neighbor directly across the street also has one, we've been neighbors for 24 years! I've been meaning to post it's VIN since I don't think she's on here.

In my huge town of 7k people there are 3 I known of. One is a HO that is clean,  other is a rig beat to crap and last one is decent 4 banger. When I was in Denver I saw one every now and then but not often.

I've only seen 2 here in town (pop'n 90,000) including mine.   There's a silver one just down the road across from where my kids went to elementary school.  He uses it a fair bit but to him it's just a "truck".   I saw it parked on the street one time so I pulled in behind and took a pic.

Last summer I came out of a store and saw this one (on the left) parked next to me.   The guy was just passing through and stopped in to the same store.

I live in a small town of about 4500, I know of 3 MJs. Mine, a red short bed with a roll bar, and another short bed that is sitting for probably 15+ years. Owner isn't interested in selling.

I think that I may have seen 2 in the last five years. I also live in a small town. Actually, I think one of the two was seen in Athens, about 45 min. north of here. Very rare to see one here.

A long, long time ago, I was surrounded by hundreds, if not, thousands of MJs. Even more XJs. Now I live in the "Land of the Ford Ranger". Haven't seen one in over 30+ years, but I keep looking and looking and looking......

I see a couple per year in my town. I can double that if I need to do something on the military base. But if I want to see 10 or more, I can drive past a friend of my body shop guy's place. He buys every 2.5L MJ in the area.

Yeah, they're getting pretty hard to find... :sad:

I recall on 285 near Evergreen seeing the back of a parked Comanche, but it was dark and I only saw the taillights and some lettering on the tailgate, but it was probably just a Dakota. Hopefully this summer I see a ton more :L:

I know of 3 around Baltimore, ones a shop truck, another parked in a driveway by my old high school, and the last is in my neighborhood with the front axel torn apart (been meaning to talk to the guy).

Oh and mine so I guess that’s 4.

I used to see about 5 of them every week, say 5-10 years ago. There was a Comanche Chief here for a few months. Could have been a Summer Intern. I think I saw one a few months back in a town about 15 minutes from me.  I would say, that I see a lot of XJs. The Jeeps seem to have survived more that anything from the 80s and 90s, or ever '00s

I've seen three in the town I love in and that's it. Mine I believe it's the only one that is driven constantly. The only other ones I've seen I had to drive to Dzimms house to see his and Pete's 1/2 a Comanche.

I know of five, including mine. I have seen three in person. I have not seen @JeepTractorGuy‘s, but I know he is near me. 

Yeah, mine isn't on the road yet, but I see one in my area on rare occasions (maybe once a year). But other then that I never see any.

Seen about 6 in my travels around the state. I live in central Oklahoma, and I have the only one in our town (pop about 6000). There was a long bed across the river but it disappeared awhile ago. There is a black one with a factory roll bar about 40 miles from me that I have thought about trying to get once I have my shop built.
