With the new Jeep Gladiator here, it's nice to take a long look at the last pickup of Jeeps. In fact, this 1987 Jeep Comanche has been given the right investments so that this classic 4x4 might just be even more capable than some of the new ones you can get today.
The Comanche was already a cool pickup. It shared the beefy lines of the Cherokee SUV, and we know how well those XJs are appreciating today. It's unknown if the odometer reflects the full actual mileage, but you can also tell that this one has been given some solid investments to keep it looking newer. There's a deep blue paint with a good gloss, newer headlights, and a newer grille that all give this added style. But the big news is the added substance. The lifted stance makes the most out of this truck's 4x4 prowess. Plus, the wide towing mirrors and Pacer wheels add polish and function. And not only is the bed done with protective liner paint but also the bumpers. We also love the Comanche for what it represents. It was born right as Jeep was absorbed by Chrysler, and so they weren't too interested in having a Jeep compete with the Dakota. So it wasn't as well supported back then, and that makes it a rarity now.
The interior especially reminds you of the Cherokee. So the dash is one of the most car-like of this truck era. And the blue southwestern tapestry seat cover harmonizes with the interior colors while also being pure vintage truck cool. Plus, the three-spoke steering wheel and floor shifter give you a comfortable driving position.
Under the hood is a correct 4.0-liter motor. This inline-six was derived from the tough-as-nails AMC line of motors, and so you get durability and economy. Fuel injection only enhances this reputation. And the five-speed manual transmission puts the control firmly in your hands. The two-speed transfer case, deep treads on the tires, and lifted suspension w/Rough Country shocks means this pickup is a true off-road Jeep. But it also has power steering, power brakes, front discs, and an overall solid feeling on the road that makes this one good for all occasions.
This was a well-done package that has been cared for correctly. The sale even comes with a service manual and three boxes of spare components. So while the new Gladiator is expensive, a classic Jeep pickup like this is capable, cool, and also affordable. Call today!!!
