What's a 1990 Jeep Comanche worth?

Hi All,

I recently purchased a '08 Tacoma and am selling my 1990 Jeep Comanche. I purchased it new, have about every receipt for anything ever done to it. It runs fine, just passed inspection and it still used a few times a week. It has 177K on it. Factory stock condition, no mods or off-roading, just used for a small business I used to have, and to take my dogs to the vet. Inside is clean, no seat rips, dash is good. Desperately needs a paint job, no rust. No major engine work, just a complete clutch system replacement about 10 years ago. Has an old aluminum camper shell, doesn't leak. Has the "PowerTech Six", 4.0L with 5 speed manual (5th gear is overdrive). Has the factory 10-spoke custom wheels. Doesn't use a drop of oil, never has. Upgraded A/C to use the newer refrigerant gas.

I'm asking because I put it up on Craigslist for about the KBB value ($1000) and was immediately emailed by several people that I was asking too little for it, so I unlisted it. Their opinions varied all over the place, so I'm not sure what it may be worth. I may put it on eBay or take to our AutoFair here at the Charlotte Motor Speedway next month.

Obviously it's worth different prices to different people, but I figured some of you probably have a better idea of what a starting price might be.

Thanks in advance!
Alan

id say if it's auction style like ebay where the price goes up, put your reserve around that.

if it's bargaining style like craigs list wherre the price goes down with negotiations, i'd start it closer to 3K. good luck with the sale.

Not much of a jeep fan, but if it runs good then a $1000 is a good deal.

Wink It sold for $3525

Turns out it sold for $3525.00 on ebay this past Sunday. I delivered it today and got cash for it. His dad worked in upper management for Kaiser-Jeep, and so this guy collects old Jeeps. Talk about fortunate timing and location!

He told me that the one owner, recently inspected and the fact I kept all my service receipts, convinced him of spending a bit more for this one. So we were both pleased

I'd own another Jeep in a heartbeat. You just have to make sure that it has the 4.0 engine.

Those AMC six bangers were hard to kill. I never had any trouble with it.

From Wikipedia:

"This American Motors Corporation legacy engine was redesigned by Chrysler to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness. The last in the line of the seven main bearing AMC inline sixes, the 4.0 is regarded as one of the best 4x4 off-road engines. The 4.0 AMC six has many after market parts due to its longevity and durability. Many of these engines are known to go more than 300,000 miles (483,000 km) without rebuilding."

I have been around off-road long enough to justify my decal i proudly place on my back window of my 2010 tacoma!

I would take a toyota pickup over a jeep anytime!!!

Straight axle fronts are for old timers!!! hehehe
Well straight axles are better out here because of our terrain...I'm SASing my truck as soon as its paid off...IFS sucks for off roading...the articulation just isn't there

LOL at the childish responses. If I was really serious about wheeling I'd get a Jeep over my Taco but the Taco fits more people and if more comfortable on the road. Also I can always get a Jeep and tow it with my Taco. But why would I use a Jeep over a Taco, well because of the wheelbase and SFA. Nothing beats SFA unless you want to go fast over whoops and such.

Rubi's are the way to roll man...I'd like to get one...still keep the Taco of course

But on the other hand i'd rather just save the money and SAS the Taco honestly...and have the best of both worlds!
