Yes. Learning how to spell Comanche. LOL.

What engine, trans, 4wd?

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

Okay....

Is it a manual trans or automatic trans?

Yeah like I said it does not have 4wheel drive. It's a 1987 jeep Comanche, all I know is that it's all original, low miles, a long bed and when I lifted up the carpets before it had low to no rust, the surface has rust ad a dent on the drivers side! But I bout this Comanche for 400 bucks, it runs, but had a dead battery and a flat tire! I'm just looking for some ideas on what to do with it at a low cost!

Thank you, but it passed inspection, and is somewhat clean, tomorrow I'll take pictures of the engine and such, I was thinking of wet sanding it down, trying to bang the dent out of the bed, and try to get the dent out of the door, and use the rust oleum spray paint, to save a few hundred bucks on a new hunter orange paint job? Would that be bad?

Not sure on the paint. But the recommended electrical issues should be addressed. What's the worst that could happen? Problems could be nipped in the bud, and you'd learn more about your Jeep in the process?
