Defiantly worth the asking price. You can see that he used only the highest-quality tie wraps to install the intercooler, and that speaks well to the rest of the craftsmanship.

https://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/cto...710657031.html1987 Jeep Comanche Chief 4x4 - $3900


1987 Jeep Comanche Chief 4x4
VIN 1JTMR63S5HT132266
173,313 miles








The suspension has been fully reviewed and refreshed recently by a 4x4 shop and is extremely tight (I have receipts). Runs and drives good.

4.0 I6 Renix
4x4
Short bed
AW4 Automatic Transmission (center console shifter)
High Pinion Dana 30 front
Dana 44 rear
3.73 gears
Bucket seats
6" lift (approximate)
Front coil springs unknown (prior owner installed)
Spring Over Axle (SOA) rear
BF Goodrich 33x12.5R15 tires, like new
Jegs D window 15x8 wheels
Bilstein 5100 shocks (new)
Clayton Front Control Arms (new)
All bushings, ball joints, and U joints recently gone over and refreshed by an offroad shop
Crown brake hoses
New transmission mount
New exhaust
New fuel sending unit
Doors are removable

Known issues:
- Stock fuel gauge does not work, aftermarket fuel gauge was installed by prior owner but
it is the wrong gauge so it reads backwards
- A/C does not work, needs a new compressor at a minimum
- There is a leak of some sort in the brake booster that can be heard when the brake
pedal is pushed down. Brakes still work fine but are on the weak side. I purchased a new dual diaphragm brake booster with the intent of replacing it but I haven't had the time. This part will be included with the sale.
- (Body) Front of truck bed is bent forward towards the cab, needs to be pulled back into place
- Drivers seat sits slightly unlevel, seats have rips in them
- Center console is missing a few pieces (storage door is missing)

Sixshooter notes: For you snowy yankee types. I know you loves them 4x4s.

I daily the Miata in all weather. Have never missed a day of work no matter how much snow was coming down, in both Chicago and Poughkeepsie NY, much to the amazement of my truck-and-Subaru-owning co-workers.

Also, that Ferraribishi makes me sad.

In fact, all body kits make me sad.

But the ones painted in the McDonalds color scheme doubly so. (Are the yellow bits even paint? The hard 90 on the rear fender looks like duct tape.)

But that lumbar support on the Mitsurari is too custom for me.
This "Bugatiata" has Altima/Maxima headlamps lol. The original listing for it said Bugatti body kit.

Fast forward the video to like 4.5 mins or something. It's worth a look.

Stupid thing porpoises badly. Is it hooked to the jet, doesn't look like it. Looks like it just pushes air which doesn't make sense. I don't understand why this exists. I also don't understand why it's so shitty. Also not a jet, but a turboshaft turbine engine.

The 3000hp ones (same as above) in unlimited boats are capable of 200mph+
