Where / How often do you see Comanches?

Recommended Posts

In person I've seen maybe 10 total in my entire life and I own 2 of them.  3-4 of them were being parted out or otherwise not roadworthy.  They are not common at all around here and are usually rusted pretty bad.

Saw one today.  I was coming down Santa Fe into Castle Rock.  It was lifted with some kind of cage in the back.  It was a light color but I can't say exactly what.

 

I was in my XJ at the time.

Know a guy here in Victoria BC that’s got a 87 2 Wheel Dr. straight six Comanche with about 300,000 km on it and inside and out is mint. How’s the factory cap. Needs the usual clutch slave of course, if I had the room and be in my driveway right now, beside my 87 Comanche.

Saw a Comanche today! Was red, 97+, short bed I think. Big lift, maybe 6-7 inches. Doors were off. Near Arapahoe and Parker. Let me know if this was you or know someone with a Comanche like that :L:

I've been driving to northern Alabama for work related stuff this week, going though a bunch of small towns. In my truck of course.

 

I've never seen more 90s Ford Thunderbirds, FSJs, or old Datsun pickups in one place. Not a single MJ to be found.

I’ve only ever seen one here in island apart from mine. Haven’t seen it in at least 6 months but it was an off white rust bucket. I think the owner works at the airport since I’ve seen it parked in the employee lot. Will try to get some info on it if I find the owner one of these days. I don’t believe there was a Jeep dealership on island while the Comanche was in production.

Here in Helena MT i know of 4 total including mine. 1 is clearly not used, 4 flat tires and about 8 different colors of spray paint, 1 is a lwb on 33s that is owned by a employee at a local fab shop, and 1 more which is a stock lwb pioneer with a topper. I only know of 1 of the owners, the man with the pioneer, he commented on a Comanche hoodie i was wearing saying he had a pioneer, not positive it was the same truck but I'm 90% sure.

I see one or two a month. They seem pretty common in rural NC.

I know where 4 of them are within a 10 mile radius of my house, and I'm trying to get guy down  a few dollars so I can snatch it up. Good Luck my friend!

10-15yrs ago when I worked retail in town there were about 8-10 running around our little town.  Now I fell fortunate to see an xj on the street.  Its been a while since I have seen another MJ on the road.  I have seen a few through craigslist and marketplace ads but only a very small handful.
