As some of you might have noticed I've been busy modeling a Jeep Comanche.
So far I have only showed you pictures of the crawler version and I've been asked so many times for a stock version, of which I already had in mind.
Along with the stock and crawler versions I have also thought about a simple lifted version with bigger tyres and maybe another set of bumpers.
Or another crawler with a roll cage, but not as advanced as the crawler I made in the first place.
When I finish the stock version, I can easily modify it into quite a lineup of different versions which I've been thinking about making.

Other then exterior and suspension I've also showed you 2 engines, a small block chevrolet 350 inspired one:

And, the engine that came with the Jeep Comanche, an AMC 4.0 inline 6 cylinder engine:

Then I decided to turbocharge the AMC 4.0, for that extra bit of power:

That already makes different 3 engines so far! either way, a cummins is still on the to-do list .




But not only did I want to make it look good, I want it to handle, and crash good, that's why I've spent several days making and tuning the current node/beam chassis.
And it has paid off! this is my best crashing car so far:
It looks a bit ugly ingame, since I quickly slapped the chassis and bodypanels on with the standard chrome material.

And that's pretty much what I'm planning to do with W.I.P. Comanche model, but enough rambling about my plans, here are some pictures of the stock version as it is right now.
I still got to redo the fenders, wheels, the stock bumpers and some other things, no worries

    This looks amazing! Great work! I don't know if this has been suggested before, but the picture you posted of it ingame gave me an idea. Have you thought about a trophy truck version, baja style? I know it's completely unrelated and not characteristic of a Commanche, but I just thought it might be a fun idea after you make the stock and crawler versions.

    I like the detail you put into it bro..

    just a fyi-the comanche also used a 4 cylinder and a (2.8*might be a different one) v6 as well. and the gauges came in many different styles

    ex:

    one style used (my neighbor had an 89 comanche with the same gauge cluster pictured)

    cluster on the top was also used as well
    this one was probably the best out of all of them-similar to the one you currently have on there, but its a bit older and (IMO)makes it look a bit better
    better pic of above cluster

    the way you've modeled the truck reminds me of my neighbors comanche-always reliable till the day the floor rotted out
