Sold? Stolen? Crashed? Retired?
Rest assured, our 1989 Jeep Comanche project pickup truck is alive and well, residing at our TFL studios. It had a bit of a slumber, several months of R&R while we focused on new projects while removing old ones.
Cars and Coffee finally brought our old Jeep out of retirement. Roman and Tommy brought it to the event to mingle, see slick machines and discuss the status of the Comanche as well. Along the way, young Tommy fell in love with a Citronen. Some tears were shed.
Hopefully, we can play with the Jeep Comanche a little bit more before it returns to its slumber. As it stands, we managed to do some fun videos with it and a few write-ups (on TFLtruck) as well.
On a personal note, I owned a 1987 Jeep Comanche and beat it mercessily. It was remarkably capable, hauling as much of a load as mid-90s full size pickup trucks. It was a beast off-road and, other than dismal gas mileage, it was one of the best small pickup trucks of its day… in my opinion.
I guess it’s true, they don’t make them like that anymore.
