1988 4X4 Jeep Comanche Sportruck Short Box. 96,282 miles Wyoming truck with no rust.  2.5 4cyl   Bored .40 over with less than 2000 miles on rebuild. 5 speed and 307 transfercase. 4’’ Lift, topper with carpet and roof rack.  Custom roll bar that fits under topper. K@N air intake. Bucket seats out of a newer jeep, carpet, visor shelf, sliding rear window, brush guard, tinted windows, almost new tires, window visors, black out head light covers, electric windows and started installing the electric door locks, and bed liner. I am being forced to try to sell it due to I only take it out of the garage about 2 times a year for the past 10. This truck has way too much sentimental value to me to get ride of it but she said I have to try? So I am putting a high reserve of $4000 on it. (She said “try” not that it has to sell). I am the 2nd owner, the first was a vet clinic that put on 32k miles and I have owned it since 1995. Here is everything I can nit pick on it and everything wrong?   Front drive line has a Ujoint starting to tick, head liner is starting to fall but I will replace, muffler has a slight leak, little vacuum leak, rear window gasket has come loose on the edge, windshield has a crack, back bumper has bend, and quarter size dent in tailgate, wheels are starting to get some surface rust from sitting, sportruck sticker started coming off last time I pressure washed it, slight dent in the front drivers side fender that you can only see at the right angle. Sound system does NOT come with it, don’t think it has had enough miles on it since new piston and rings to even seat them? Due to the years it has been not driven much I would recommend trailering it home. I have listed a lot wrong in hope that it doesn’t sell or if it does there will be no surprises?  It will start right up and go but I wouldn’t travel across the country right off the bat? This truck is NOT for sale locally due to I never want to see it again if I don’t own it.  I have had locals try but I would not handle it well if I ever saw this truck being mistreated so I want it to go far away. I have always taken great care of this truck but sitting has been the worst thing for it. Any questions feel free to ask I know everything about this truck from front to back. I will purchase a new battery and new headliner if it sells?  I will not ship, I live in a small enough place that trying to make shipping arrangements would be hard?

Chrysler resolves recall issue with NHTSA, will inspect, upgrade affected Jeeps

Tue, 18 Jun 2013 16:25:00 EST

Chrysler made big news earlier in the month by refusing a recall request from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for the 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty. Last week, NHTSA boss David Strickland countered by defending his agency's request for the recall of 2.7 million Jeep SUVs. Today marked the deadline for Chrysler to formally respond to NHTSA, and it seems that both parties have met in the middle with Chrysler inspecting and upgrading some of the affected vehicles without using the word "recall," which would constitute the admission of a defect; instead, Chrysler said that it is conducting a "voluntary campaign."
At issue on these vehicles is the positioning of the fuel tank behind the rear axle that could get damaged during a rear-end collision. NHTSA has stated that at least 51 people have been killed in rear-end collisions involving these Jeeps after the vehicles caught fire, to which Chrysler countered by pointing out that both models "met and exceeded" the requirements for fuel-system integrity.
As a compromise on the situation, Chrysler says that it will inspect all pre-2004 Grand Cherokees and pre-2007 Liberty models and, "if necessary, provide an upgrade to the rear structure of the vehicle." According to Automotive News, this upgrade will consist of adding a trailer hitch that will presumably better protect the rear-mounted gas tank. Vehicles already equipped with a factory or Mopar hitch will not be modified. Chrysler's official statement on the matter is posted below, but no additional information has been released, such as when the campaign will begin and how many vehicles could be affected.

Updated 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee ace same controversial moose test it failed in 2012 [w/video]

Thu, 02 Jan 2014 13:30:00 EST

Some background: one of the more scandalous international incidents of he-said/he-said from 2012 was when Swedish magazine Teknikens Varld put the Jeep Grand Cherokee through its "moose (or elk) test" and reported that the SUV nearly rolled over. That lead to a whole lot of accusations and rebuttals: more than one website and Chrysler's own blog reported that the Jeep was overloaded; Chrysler said Teknikens printed the magazine then let Chrysler respond, Teknikens answered all of the charges in a lengthy post and said Chrysler was given a chance to comment before it went to print; when Chrysler sent investigators to oversee the test and the Jeep didn't go up on two wheels as it did in the first test, furthermore all four wheels stayed on the ground when Auto Motor und Sport tested a Grand Cherokee in the same way.
Teknikens then re-ran the test with a new vehicle and said it's been doing this test since the 1970s, uses the loading information that Chrysler provides to the Swedish motor authority and the previous Grand Cherokee passed with no problem. In the second test, the Jeep failed again, then it gave Chrysler engineers access to the car's electronics and ran the test again. In that second round the Grand Cherokee didn't repeat the lurid two-wheel action, but in eleven runs it blew out front left tire seven times. Chrysler still objects to the results of all of those tests and maintains that vehicle was safe.
The 2014 Grand Cherokee was given its shot at the gauntlet in the latest round of moose tests, and Teknikens Varld reports that it passed without any problem at all, its stability control working perfectly, controlling motion at low speeds and all the way up to 44.1 miles per hour. You can watch the video of the new test and read the press release from the magazine on the updated Grand Cherokee below.
