I haven't had this for long. It's very simple. No power steering, ABS, AC, or anything extra except the aftermarket pioneer radio. Off roads nice and has great ground clearance even with stock sized tires and no lift. Always starts up and is ready to go.
Solid suspension, 2.5 L engine has a lot of power and good gas mileage
Remember when you got a Jeep because the bumpy ride was part of the reason to own one. Well this is that Jeep. If you ever had a buddy that had an old army Jeep and can remember driving through fields and bouncing around then this Jeep will take you right back to those days. They are just short of a small tank. Mine has all the aftermarket stuff and I don't know if there is much out there that would really hurt it. Trees, brush, even a deer (oh how I hate it when they do jump out in front of ya.) But hey it will hit it and you never feel anything but the bump.
I have my YJ lifted 5 1/2" on 33's and love it more than any car I've owned. I have owned over 17 in my lifetime. I drive this car very hard and take it on difficult offroad trails. This is also my daily driver, vacation vehicle and commuter to work. Keep in mind when buying that this is not a smooth driving car, not showy on the interior, but will last you along time and is very easy and cheap to repair. I rock climb, mud bogg, trail ride and drive it on the beach. This is an excellent vehicle.
Offroad capability, reliability, I always know it will get me back home. Distinctive styling and usability. 2.5L and 4.0L are indestructible. I love pulling out Toyotas and big trucks out of the mud.
Fuel economy ... but who cares, it's worth it. I get on average 15.5mpg with the 2.5L 5-speed. But this motor is bulletproof!
The 1990 Jeep Wrangler: you either love
it or hate it. It should not be
mistaken as civil or even practical.
Everything about this vehicle is very
stark and raw, from the trademark
styling, to the spartan interior,
flimsy tedious-to-install soft top, and
stiff suspension setup. This vehicle
is built for aggressive off-road
performance, not for handling and
everyday tooling around. What makes it
appealling is its honest, hard-working
image, its macho mystique and heritage,
and yes, it will go anywhere...within
reason. I recommend this vehicle to
people looking for a fun 2nd car to
tackle the trails or just to putz
around with the top off on a sunny
Ruff & ready looks, open-air motoring
capability, this vehicle can go just
about anywhere with its outstanding 4-
wheel-drive ability (that's why the
Jeep is the benchmark for 4x4's).
Jeep has refined and modernized its
Wrangler since 1990 and now it rides
more like a car and has several more
convenience features. Jeep is trying to
appeal to a broader crowd including
young females with its colors and
graphics, and is succeeding.
This car is amazing, it has been so
much for my friends and I that I am
really reluctant to sell it. I love
this car and it has always been really
good to me. Anyone who owns this car
will be blessed with really amazing
road trips, even trips to the gas
station will seem memorable.
It has a pioneer stereo, including a
amp and pyramid speakers. The front
speakers are newer pioneers and the
sound is outrageous in the car.
It needs an all around tune yp. She is
pretty steady and reliable.
