    what should i watch for ? new to jeep's. . .

    I just bought myself a 1988 AMC Jeep Comanche Sport Truck.

    specs:
    2.5L-I4, 4spd-DD, 4.10 gears 215/70R15 front and 225/70R15 rear.

    Truck is a 2wd regular cab short bed as best i can tell.

    Is there any item's I should be worried about or keep an eye on ?
    thing's like what its weak point's ? / whats known to fail ?

    Anything plastic or rubber look for cracks. i.e. vac lines.
    motor mounts. bushings and so on.
    My 89 seems to like the SEA FOAM in the gas. and air intake every so often.
    oh and the in dash lcd screens for the navigation system are prone to fail. :-)

    check under the carpet for rust, make sure the battery terminals are clean, jeeps like clean battery terminals and don't run good without a good connection.

    don't run it hot.
