The YJ Wrangler was the first of the bunch and despite some really good upgrades from the CJs it replaced, it was off to a rough start thanks to some really horrible parts. Chrysler bought Jeep that first year and so is often mistakenly blamed for a lot of the issues the early Wranglers had. Now if you are new to Jeeps, or just looking to buy your first, it is hard to go wrong with a Wrangler. More than 25 years later, Jeep is still making Wranglers, and we’ve lived the whole thing. We’d like to blame Chrysler for this, but the reality of it is that the first Wrangler was actually brought out under the AMC badge. But the fact of the matter is that we didn’t see Chrysler’s influence until the ’90s, when it began fixing many of the AMC-design shortcomings.
First came the YJ Wrangler, which is easy to spot because it had rectangular headlamps. The Jeep changed its name to Wrangler in 1987 when the CJ series was discontinued. That styling change was considered heresy by Jeep fans and so for the TJ series the traditional round headlamps were restored. According to James McManus from London Jeep Specialists in Enfield the majority of Wranglers are the soft top model and used mainly in the summer for fun. If you want to get the full Marlboro-smoking image without having to risk your health and don’t like checked shirts then the Jeep Wrangler is the answer. Tracing its roots back to the original wartime Willys, the iconic Jeep has been in production in various forms ever since. We’ll keep to the TJ series because as you’ll read, it’s not as if Chrysler has messed too much with the original concept.
A: 33"s will look fine and give you a bit of room so the tires dont make contact with the fenders. I have put 33"s on a CJ7 with 2.5" lift and it only slightly rubbed the fender flares. As far as rim size, it depends on how wide the 33"s are. I ran 32x11.50s tires on a 15x8" rim and it was fine. A 15x10" would be ideal but you could get away with a 15x8"...

A: Since your about to buy it i guess its to late change your mind ... I remember test driving a 94 with a 4cyl. in it , i'm glad now that i didn't because of the offroading that we do in my family... The 4 cyl. would never hold up and at 220+ miles i'm amazed it still runs .... The Yj's were Famous for having a lot of rot on the frame near the front axle due to driving on the beaches , the salt was a bad thing .... Make sure your frame is still good around the leaf spring perches or you'll be bringing it to a welding shop right away , and their not cheep .... Like he said above , you would be better off with 4.0 TJ or the 4.2 YJ... Wish i could be more positive for you as far as this engine but i think it was made for the road only ... The first time you do some serious off road you'll start looking for another one .... However if its a done deal as far as buying it then i wish you fun with your jeep , after all it is still a jeep and they were made to have fun in ... You will still be able to do some offroading in it regardless of its engine size .... Remember this , most junk yards carry everything you will need for this jeep at cheeper prices and most parts can be found on e-bay too ... In the meantime go online and order some free catalogs from quadratec .com and 4wd.com .... While your in e-bay look for a good service manual for your jeep , they even have them on a disk there ... having a good S.M. is very important .... Good Luck and have fun jeeper...

A: Skyjacker makes the softest and most comfortable lifts for the YJ at the best price. The only one that is more comfortable is Old Man Emu, but their lifts are nearly double the cost of a standard lift. Rancho makes good lifts as well but for the YJ the biggest one the have is 2". Avoid massive lifts above 4" and try to make sure that all brackets, accessories, lines, and preferably shocks are included. (answered by jeepnuk on December 08, 2006)
