1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer Short Bed 4.0L from North America
I love my new Jeep!!!
I bought it from a fellow teen who had blown out two transmissions, and had wrecked it going 20 into a non moving object.
I currently have it in the shop having the clutch replaced and transmission. I plan to replace the upper panel, bumper and fender this week.
So far I LOVE THIS TRUCK.
This is my first truck, and it is only gonna cost me about 900 bucks total to have a very reliable truck that I will have for years.
I bought the truck for 300 bucks, and so far even though I've only had it a week and not driven it, I can tell that this is the best 300 bucks I've ever spent.
Even though it is a 4X2, it will do all of the things I need it to, from camping with the boy Scouts to pulling trailers from A to B. And driving 5 hours to go to a POW WOW.
It is a 5 speed manual, which is what I have been looking for in a truck, and it will get good gas millage, which is gonna be very nice at the prices of gas this summer.
There IS NO RUST ON THIS TRUCK, even though it is 20 years old. It has less rust than my dad’s Ford that I've been driving.
All in all, it's gonna take me a total of 1000 bucks to have this awesome truck that will make my friends envy who have big Chevy’s.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Sounds like Pie-In-The-Sky Dreaming to me.
If you can get away with spending $1000 and having a "reliable" truck for years, more power to you.
However an old vehicle like that will probably require a lot more work.

My husband owns a 1987 Jeep Comanche Pioneer, and he loves it. We've had it for about 14 years now, and all we have to do is keep it up, no really big cost there.
He wants to sells it now, as we are moving and will get a new truck.
But just wanted to let you know, those trucks are babes!!
