Battling the SUV crash image
By rick90yj on


1990 Jeep Wrangler Islander 2dr SUV 4WD


When I bought it, it had 89,000 miles
on it, and I've put 60,000 miles on
this vehicle since then, and the
reliability is excellent. I've
replaced the carb with an Autolite
carb, and lifted it, but otherwise it's
factory stock. I have no problems with
the supposed problems with SUV
rollover. It corners great.

Best Features

I've hit three deer with it. One was at 40MPH, and it sustained NO damage other than a slight wrinkle to two of the grill upright bars, and a bent fender, which I straighened out with my hands.

Worst Features

The only improvement I would suggest for the Jeep Wrangler was done in 1997 when they switched the suspension to coil springs instead of leaf springs.
