Remember when small pickup trucks existed? The Jeep Comanche, somewhat based on the Jeep Cherokee, was one such pickup. There was no quad- or mega-cap option, only a regular cab, like pickup truck gods intended. But there was a choice of 4×2 or 4×4 driveline and a six- or a seven-foot bed. Over the years there were different engines but not much has changed over the seven years that the Comanche was made. 
Perhaps this is why people love to modify them. We’ve seen a quad-cab Comanche before and now we’re seeing a… heavy duty conversion!

Hmm. So, we have a stock 4.0-liter engine. We have what looks like a stock wheelbase with the longer bed option. And then we have wheels with a very weird bolt pattern and something that isn’t a heavy duty axle. Installed over that are some decent looking DRW fenders. There are even running boards that are very period correct. Overall, this thing looks great in these pictures. 
What is that axle off of? I can’t figure out what that bolt pattern is from but it’s not heavy duty because there are only five lug-nuts. I am also guessing that this is a two-wheel-drive model. I have so many questions. The most important question is: $4500, buy or no buy?
UPDATE: An FCA representative (!) confirmed that this is a one-ton Dana 44 axle!
