should I?

I can get 2 older 2.8L v6 comanches for $400 both are long bed 4x4's one has a bad engine and the other has a newer replacment engine. Body wise they are both in decent shape.

The real kicker is the both are missing tires and wheels.

Check what the serial numbers on the trucks are... We have been looking for the first/earliest production numbers for '86.

Dont have them yet but I do have a question if they are both 86 was 1986 a transition year for cherokees too? I can tell you onehas badges that say "custom" under the comanche and the other looks as if it had the same badges on it but they are pretty different inside they have different shift boots and different gauge clusters and different steering colum/steering wheels. they both have different grills to but I cant tell you the difference off hand without looking at them.

1987 was the transition year. That's when the 4.0L came out and the game changed. As for the packages/options... Being so old, I wouldn't be surprised if something was switched or swapped at some point.

You should drop by Comancheclub.com . We get a bit more traffic, and the chat is more MJ specific.
