Great Reliable Truck Thats Good On Gas — The truck is great on gas. Ir performs on and off road really good just stock. It never needs major repairs. It looks great and even now being over 20 years old it still looks great and has almost no rust. It is a blast to drive on and off road. The only bad thing about it is you cant find new tail lights for it once broken. So dont break a tail light

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its fun to drive and can take you anywhere you want to go

Cons: nobody makes tail lights for it

Reliable Like A Vehicle Should Be — Performance is more than adequate, handles very good for a lifted vehicke, and still tows plenty. Build quality is excellent, but don't get the 5 speed til 1990, also opt for the 4.0, you'll be glad you did. Appearance is 80's obviously, yet plenty modern enough. Mileage is the only place it really suffers, between 12 and 16 average. Maintenance is cheap and they are fairly cheap and easy to modify. It is alot of fun to drive, both on and off road.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Go anywhere, do anything.  

Cons: none

Wish I Could Resurrect It.... — Awesome Truck! Awesome acceleration for a jeep/little truck. 5spd was great! light rear end made it fun! Any old jeep had unmatched quality, but also it was handled with care. Good appearance, lines were great, but the paint was a little faded... who cares! WICKED FUN to drive!

Pros: FUN

Cons: NONE

88 Comanche — Its an overall awesome truck. A good daily driver and a good off roader. Not much maintenance need other than minor things. Gas mileage is around 10MPG. Its alot of fun to drive being a little bigger than most. Being able to take it off road and use it for a work truck is a great advantage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, Reliable

Cons: Gas Mileage

My 1st Vehicle — My first vehicle, grandfather got me this when I was in high school. It was his old truck and he passed it on to me. I loved this truck, it was the first time I went off-road and it was the first vehicle I hit 96 MPH in. Amazing handling, but the body was starting to fall apart. It got decent mileage, but didn't have much power, I believe it was a large 4 cylinder or small 6. Developed a persistent problem of not wanting to start at random times. When the tie-rods went out my dad made me give it back to my grandfather. My uncle owns it now and he fixed it up and drives it to work every day.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Solid handling, 4WD was great offroad and in the winter, cheap to fill the tiny gas tank

Cons: Many repairs, small truck

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Rarer vehicle

Cons: Age

'88 Jeep Commanche — Had the 2wd version, and even at that it would go through anything!! It LOVED the snow and was responsive to both throttle control and steering! It was the sport version, with a quality sound system and road noise sound proofing. It was not built with extended cab and I am sure that is the only reason it did not take off.

Pros: great handling, light weght for engine giving lots of acceleration

Cons: no extended cab
