MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this rarely seen 1987 Comanche Pioneer 4x4 truck that is a local 3 owner original Jeep with a clean Carfax. This truck has AMC’s highly regarded 242 CID (4.0L) straight-six, which generated more power than some competing V-6 and V-8 engines at that time, including Jeep’s own 360 CID V-8.Made in AMC’s Toledo, Ohio factory, this example is finished steel in its original Sterling Silver (code 3D) with Grenadine Metallic trim (code BD) and plenty of exterior patina, the original exterior could be left as is or used as a foundation for a respray. The truck’s bodywork is straight though the hood might need some TLC. Again, this a very original Jeep that is very hard to come by recently.The original engine bay is tidy for the age and condition, the battery looks good, the truck’s bumpers are in satisfactory condition and the rear bumper is the corrugated step type. The cargo bed comes with a black bedliner and there are bedrails to serve as cargo tie-downs.This truck rolls on generic radials, size 225/75R15 at every corner. The tires are mounted on factory wheels. The tires and wheels are in good, original order.Under the hood is Jeep’s new-for-’87 4.0L inline six-cylinder engine, which replaced the old GM-sourced V-6 engine from 1986. The engine features Renix (Renault/Bendix) multi-point fuel injection system. This motor is linked an Aisin-Warner 30-40LE four-speed automatic transmission and part-time “Command-Trac” four-wheel drive with New Process 231 transfer case.The 30-40LE featured electronic controls with a switch on the dashboard to let the driver to choose between two performance modes: “Power,” in which the transmission downshifts more quickly and upshifts at higher rpm during hard acceleration, and “Comfort,” in which the upshifts are made at lower engine speeds to conserve fuel and reduce engine noise and vibration. Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, power steering, power brakes (discs front/drums rear), cruise control and tilt steering column.Inside, the Jeep’s cordovan vinyl interior is in overall satisfactory condition. The bucket seats show wear on the bottom of both seats and the lower back of the driver’s seat. There’s a neutral-colored headliner to help break up the cordovan’s inherent darkness. A three-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the dashboard offers a full range of instrumentation. A console-mounted shifter and factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck completes the interior.American Motors' Jeep designers based the Comanche MJ body, styling, engineering, and drivetrain on the XJ Cherokee, which had been introduced for 1984. The Comanche had a somewhat more conventional body-on-frame design behind the cab and a removable cargo box but retained the unibody construction of the Cherokee in the front half of the vehicle.The Comanche used the XJ Cherokee's “Quadralink” front suspension, with coil springs and upper/lower control arms on a solid axle. It was argued that the coil springs allowed for greater ride comfort and axle articulation during off-road excursions. A track bar (Panhard rod) is used to keep the axle centered under the truck. For the rear suspension, the truck used leaf springs that are considerably longer than the Cherokee's, which give Comanches good load-carrying capacity without creating a hard ride. The standard rear axle was the same Dana 35 used in the Cherokee, except that the Comanche mounted the leaf springs underneath the axle, as do most other trucks, and the Cherokee mounted them on top of the axle.During the mid-1980s, according to AMC chairman W. Paul Tippett Jr. “People are finding trucks a reasonable and sophisticated alternative to cars.” To satisfy the demand and to compete with Japanese competitors, both AMC and Chrysler were preparing compact pickups for the 1986 and 1987 model years (respectively).The Jeep Comanche was introduced in mid-August 1985, at a lavish event staged at the ballroom of the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino (currently Bally's Las Vegas) for AMC's over 1,500 North American dealers.Competition to this Jeep in 1987 included Chevrolet’s S-10, Dodge’s Ram 50 and new-for-1987 Dakota, Ford’s Ranger, GMC’s S-15, Mazda’s B2000 Pickup, Mitsubishi’s Mighty Max Pickup, Nissan’s Hardbody Pickup, Toyota’s Hilux Pickup and Volkswagen’s Rabbit Pickup.Jeep’s Comanche never fulfilled its masters’ expectations, despite its many advantages over its competition.
