Postby shiresnclydes » Fri May 28, 2010 10:38 pm

so while driving through town today i happen upon a truck sitting at shop for sale with a sign that says 1000$ obo so i stop just for shnits and giggles. it was an 1982 jeep comanche 4x4 truck. it needs a snap load of body work the 258 L6 needs to be rebuilt but the guy "says" the 4x4 works and he actually let me start it and it runs its just got a dead cylinder and blows smoke. he said he'd let it go for 900$ so im thinking about it and ive got friends who have experience with the 258 so rebuilding the engine wouldn't be a problem and body work is easy soooo any opinions?

I had a 1986 and a 1987 Both were pretty tough trucks. There is not much room in the cab due to the hump in the floorboard for the trans. The shifter would go from the dashboard to the bench seat shifting from 1st to second
