    The YJ Wrangler: The Yuppie Jeep?



    These days, it's hard to see the Jeep Wrangler as anything other than an adventure vehicle.

    Haha...I love my YJ. I drive it more than the JK. Yuppies and leaf springs just don't seem to go together these days.

    And they called the TJ the trendy Jeep.
    2014 JK Sport, auto, 4.56s.
    MC 2.5" GCL OME.
    BFG KM2 35x12.5x17 on American Outlaw 17x9w/4.5"BS rims.
    BR6 BBK...
    ...and other stuff.

    My observations are based on my experiences...YMMV.
    I'm only minding my Jeep for my son.

    I remember my sister buying a YJ back in 1990. We had just moved to Texas and she wanted a Jeep so bad. It was the cheapest YJ on the lot. Black, soft top, manual tranny, 4-banger engine, no radio, and no a/c....heck, who needs a/c in Texas?? LOL...I think it cost like $9800 brand new. She just showed up with it in the drive one day as the dealer let her take it for a day before buying it. I took one look and said "this is a manual....you don't know how to drive a manual....how did you get home? How did the dealer even let you off the lot with this thing for the night?" That thing was the easiest 5-speed I've ever driven....course it took like 2 minutes and a mile of runway to get up to 60mph. I also rememer her side mirrors being worthless because they would just flop down at the slightest vibration.

    I had a 93 YJ 4 banger 5 speed that I bought new for $12k. Same deal, no radio, etc. It was beautiful and I put about 130k on it. It had about 130k and was in perfect shape when I sold it. I kick myself to this day for selling that Jeep.

    I moped around for 5 years until the JKU came out. I love the JK just as much, but man that YJ handled like a sports car. It had 50/50 weight distribution. What a hoot it was!
