Vehicle: 1990 Jeep Wrangler S 2dr SUV 4WD

Owned since new, primary vehicle for first year, then wised up and used as second or third ever since, where it excels as convertible, off-roader, tow vehicle, winter driver, grocery getter; fun, practical, economical to operate and easy to maintain. 17- 20mpg with 5sp/2.5L, stock. Just don't ask it to carry more than two adults, spend hours on the highway or keep you cool in the heat (though its warm enough in the winter). Took it to Turkey & Germany, was right vehicle for first country, wrong for second. Next time will buy hardtop w/AC and get the softtop later.




Will run forever and always

Vehicle: 1990 Jeep Wrangler S 2dr SUV 4WD

I bought my Jeep with 124,000 on it and have done a lot of driving in 23,000 miles; now it reads nearly 150k but still purrs along like new. I lifted mine 6" on 33" Xterrains and have jumped it, swamped it, flooded it, and she still runs great if you change the oil.




This is my dream car

Ever since I got my Wrangler I enjoyed it. Working on it has been very easy, very cheap, and educational. It never left me stranded. For 127,000 miles and a 1990 I'm very impressed with reliability. Thing are holding up very good, and build quality is greater than the previous japanese sports car I drove. That Japanese car had so many rattles and was 8 years newer than my Jeep with 1/4 the miles. I wouldn't change anything about this car. Well, maybe lockers, lift and bigger tires but if it was built perfect from the factory your couldn't have fun working on it and building it the way you want.

What's New for 1990

Locking half doors are available for the first time. Order a hardtop and you'll get a new rear window wiper/washer. Front seats gain improved lateral support, and Sahara and Laredo models get a larger, 20-gallon fuel tank. S models have a wider variety of options.

The 97 & 98 Wranglers have the same 5-speed as the 1990-1995 models, I believe. I personally find it to be so-so and a bit sticky sometimes to shift especially from 1st to 2nd, but it doesn't hav...
