1988 Jeep Comanche Base 4.0 inline 6 from North America
Best truck ever made!!!
The main thing with the engine was the exhaust valve.
I changed the tires and brakes, and nothing else.
To be honest with everyone, this is the best truck to buy.
It has crazy low-end torque and awesome acceleration.
I pull my friends who have 4x4s out of ditches like it was nothing.
The cab is pretty small, but hey...
My friend has a new Ford Explorer 4x4 and it's lower to the ground than my truck which is only 2x4.
I added an open air filter to this truck (cold air) and it made all the difference.
I come up to some little rice (Civics) and buried them behind me.
I would buy one is a second if they would come back in reproduction.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Yes, the cab is a bit small but is adequate. Comanches were made from Cherokees as was AMC practice (think Hornet/Gremlin). If AMC had made Comanches from the two-door Cherokee, the cab would've been roomier but might have looked funny. Comanches were larger than import and domestic compact trucks, and were considered intermediates. I compared my MJ Pioneer to a first generation GM Colorado/Canyon and found they are nearly the same in dimension.

AMC's Jeep Comanche is derived from the Cherokee, but with important modifications to the frame.
Both of these vehicles are Unibodies, in which the frame is integrated into the body, so in effect the body IS the frame.
Comanches are Cherokees from the doors forward, but for the Comanche AMC made the rails deeper and added an "X" structure in the rear, making it stronger there so the pickup bed could be removable.
Also, the rear leaf springs are longer to increase the load capacity without sacrificing ride quality.

So, you're saying that the Jeep J-10 and J-20 pickups "looked funny"?
