    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

    Thats a cool little truck. I would say 2000 - 2500 is a good price.

    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.

    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 :D

    Given that I had a Cherokee with the 4.0 engine and 5 speed that never gave me a lick of trouble over 168k miles, and my Brother now has it for a daily driver with over 180k miles, and my Brother-in-law has a 4.0 auto Cherokee that we took wheeling last summer, I'd say that you're a tad off base. ;)

    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 like Comanches. I would love to find a nice Gladiator though.

    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.

    x2..well put :)

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

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

    lmao this thread is way off topic... i offroad my ifs mainly in the mud but pull my jeep with it when i wanna really get into a tight spot and want the stronger more flexible live axle. ifs was designed to desert run and give a more comfy ride. but can be made strong as hell 2.. look at humvees ofcourse their a arms are massive and the shafts dont see alot of stress because the gearing comes afterwards in the hub reduction box.
