    My father-in-law just got a smoking deal on a used 2WD Jeep Comanche. Next weekend he's bringing it over so we can change out the fluids and check it out really good. I have a few questions:

    1. The inline 6(4.0 litre) needs a new valve cover gasket. I have yet to see the truck so I'm not sure what's involved. Is the job as simple as on a K5, or is it a real PITA??? Like are there any problems wih access or are there a ton of brackets in the way?

    2. We're gonna service the OD tranny......Same question? Is it as simple on a Comanche as it is on a Blazer? I'd hate to start the job and then realize there's some trick to finishing it properly.

    Please fill me in if you can. I know dick about Jeep products....

    I dunno on the tranny...but the valve cover is prolly easier than a Blazer. There is very little if anything else that needs moving.

    I've done a lot of searching on the net for tech info, and I came across a pic of the engine bay of an I6. It looks pretty straight forward except for a bracket on the back of the valve cover that is described as the "vacuum solenoids". Like I said, I've never even seen the truck yet but that's bracket is the only thing that looks like it could be a pain.......

    the tranny pan is out in the open as well. the valve cover is basic, they did do soemthing right on these things,LOL. the heating and cooling system could use a redesign which i think they did when they released the Grands.

    When he brings it over or whatnot, can you check the interior for roomyness(is that a word?) I'm thinking about selling my Cherokee and going with the Comanche. They only want $800 OBO for the "truck" and it is 4 wheel drive too. I'm 6'1" so I have my current seat in my cherokee back a little bit, just wondering if the "truck" will allow the seat to go back far enough. Thanks

    I can comfortably drive my cousin's Comanche at 6'3 - you shouldn't have too much of a problem.

    ......And knowing is half the battle

    this should be pretty dang easy, especially the valve cover gasket.

    he who bash other 4x4, look silly when being pulled out by it.
