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?

NHTSA closes investigation into Jeep Liberty fires

Sun, 16 Mar 2014 08:58:00 EST

The investigation that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened into the Jeep Liberty in October 2013 has been closed. NHTSA received two (!) complaints about fires starting in the driver's door, thought to be caused by the master power window switch. The initial estimate was that 80,000 Libertys could be roped into a possible recall, but according to a report in the Detroit News the agency examined records for 425,000 Chrysler products that used the same window switch, including the Dodge Nitro and Chrysler Town & Country minivan.
After canvassing 265 warranty claims related to the master switches, NHTSA concluded that the rate of fires compared to the "large population of vehicles" was rather low, and that there was no trend pattern behind the few issues it did find. Perhaps with that, and the closure of the trailer hitch investigation, the Liberty can finally rest in peace.

Chrysler registers Trackhawk trademark

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 09:30:00 EST

There may not be many ways to forecast what an automaker is planning for the future, but there are some. Trademark applications are one of them, and Chrysler has just applied with the US Patent and Trademark Office to protect the name "Trackhawk." The question is, what's it planning on using it for? We don't know for sure, but we can put together an educated guess or two. And one guess is that Jeep will use the name to replace the letters SRT on the performance version of the Grand Cherokee.
How do we figure, you ask? From a number of developments. For starters, the SRT division has been reintegrated into the Dodge brand. Those letters currently appear on only two vehicles from outside the Dodge lineup: one is the Grand Cherokee SRT, and the other is the Chrysler 300 SRT. We've heard ruminations (however unconfirmed) that the latter could be either discontinued or possibly relabeled, and if the same proves true of the GC, the Trackhawk name could serve as a on-road performance counterpart to the Trailhawk label applied to off-road versions of models like the Cherokee and Renegade.
Logical it may be, but it's hardly a foregone conclusion. The Trackhawk name could just as easily be used for a new concept (like the Trailhawk name was in 2007), for another kind of trim level or for something else entirely. In fact we don't even know for sure it'll be used by the Jeep brand specifically, or used at all for that matter. Automakers have been known, after all, to register names they don't end up using.

2015 Jeep Cherokee finds a bit more fuel mileage thanks to stop/start and aero tweaks

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 16:30:00 EST

Just a year after it burst onto the scene, Jeep has already made a pretty substantial addition to its V6-powered Cherokee, which has proven to be an extremely popular seller so far for the brand, adding a new stop-start system for the midsize, off-road-ready CUV.
The addition of stop-start included a few aerodynamic tweaks to the Cherokee's polarizing body, resulting in a wallet-pleasing increase in fuel economy. According to the EPA, the front-drive, V6-powered Jeep will now return 21 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, up from 19 city and 28 highway. Four-wheel-drive, V6-powered Cherokees, meanwhile, will now return 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, up from 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg.
With 271 horsepower, 239 pound-feet of torque and these newly enhanced figures, it's refreshing to see a larger, naturally aspirated engine that is still able to take the fight to today's crop of small-displacement, turbocharged four-cylinders.
