1990 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2dr SUV 4WD


Bought with high extectations, motor
has good compression, but no one can
seem to get it to stop stalling. It
has the webber carb, but still has
hoses running everywhere! 4WD doesn't
engage due to problems from the vacuum
actuated front axle. Engine vibrates
very hard, and compared to the fuel
injected 4 cylinder, my 6 cylinder is
the bigger dog of the two. ARGH!!! I
think I will be more patient and look
harder for a 4.0 FI equipped wrangler
next time.

Best Features

Convertable, stick shift, off road capabilities even if 4WD doesn't engage. Cheap to lift.

Worst Features

Wish they would've installed the 4.0 in the Wrangler in 87 instead of 91. At least they have better power now. For a vehicle that doesn't weigh much, they drink a lot of gas. Even the newer ones. Maybe make a diesel for that great low end torque plus fuel efficiency? Just an idea.
