1991 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0 High Output from North America
A great used truck bargain
Lost my reverse back-up lights at 132,000 miles.
Gasket was leaking from transfer case.
With the exception of the above two items, this truck has just had normal maintenance and has been extremely reliable.
It is exceptionally quick, and has never left me stuck in any condition.
The Commanche Long Bed 4x4 rides well for a 4 wheel drive truck.
It's engine compartment is designed so well, it's very easy to do routine maintenance.
I highly recommend it to anyone who is able to find one to consider purchasing it. They are one of the best American products made, and several Jeep owners have commented that they would purchase one again if Jeep would considering manufacturing them again.
The 4.0 liter engine is especially strong and reliable. After 12 years, this truck still gets you up to speed very quickly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm interested in buying a truck like yours, there's one for sale in a parking lot. I have a trailer and am wondering how mush they can tow. I think it is a 91 Comanche long bed, it has an automatic and the 4.0L engine.
It also has 4x4.

I have the same question, I bought mine off a friend who lost the manual and want to know how much a 1991 Comanche long bed with 4.0L and auto trans can tow. Thanks.

I have an owners manual for my '89 Comanche Long bed, 4x4, Auto trans, 4.0 Liter that lists MY truck's towing rating at 5500lb (with the proper multi-point mounted hitch), up to 25' trailer with no more than 48 sq. ft. of frontal area. I'm sure this is the MAX size and that smaller, and lighter would be better on the truck. I would guess that a newer truck would carry at least the same rating if not better.

Original poster here! Still loving the truck...184K miles, had 3 offers to buy it lately, no chance!!! Within the past 3 years, just a water pump replaced and normal brakes, tires, etc. Truck lets you know when something is going wrong, I was able to drive it a couple of days and to the shop for the water pump!!! This Commanche will go at least to 250k!!! Love it!

I have a question, Has anyone had their truck not start after sitting for a couple of days? I have a 91 Comanche 4.0 liter /HO with auto trans. 4x4. I have had it do this in the cold and mild days. Acts like it is flooded. I have a feeling it is a throttle position sensor or fuel regulator. Any help? Thanks.

To 30 April, 2008,
Yes, mine a few years ago had difficulty starting like that. Seemed to flood itself, yet it was fuel injected.
Cleaned the fuel injectors, professionally, and it was OK.
Might not be your problem, but is solved mine. Best of luck, these are awesome trucks, 183K on mine!
