1995 Rio Grande MANGO under 90k AUTO Trans

Any number of my posts in the TJ section shows I want to upgrade to a TJ.
Just a Jeeper wanting to upgrade

1995 YJ Rio Grande Edition Jeep Wrangler
Automatic Transmission
4 cylinder
Under 90k miles
2 Dr S 4WD Utility
Newer BESTOP soft top.
Heater works VERY well
Sony XPlode CD/MP3 input stereo. Sound bar speakers where replaced with Kenwood speakers.
$6000. Make me an offer. Cash talks.

"Rio Grande (Available in champagne gold, moss green and white and, (rarely seen) Bright Mango; with a Pueblo themed interior trim package. This trim was only available in 1995, and was added to spice up the base 4-cylinder Wrangler 'S' models"

Awesome condition for a 1995. This is the perfect Jeep to pick up and DD or as a base to build it up

Additional pictures available upon request.

I am the second owner of this vehicle.
A new transmission was put in a few years back by the PO.
Scheduled oil changes throughout its life.
Garage kept the majority of its life. PO washed the Jeep every other weekend and waxed it monthly.
This resulted in very minimal rust on the body. Some connecting the passenger side body with the fender and some small spots elsewhere.

The Jeep was involved in an accident several years back. The only damage was dent on the passenger side below the door. Strictly cosmetic. No structural or frame damage.
Black rock sliders would looks great here to conceal or repair it to make this Jeep mint again!

** Frame in GREAT condition** A reputable welder with 30+ experience patched the area around the steering box. ( Common issue with Wranglers ) It was welded, patched and beefed up to ensure ride quality and safety. Receipt and location of welder available upon request.

Cosmetic Upgrades:
Frame was inspected for any dangerous rust before I began painting. Remainder of rust was all SURFACE RUST.
Went through tedious process working for countless hours to remove surface rust on the frame to prep for painting. It was then primed with Rustoleum Rusty Metal Primer and finally coated with Rustoleum Hammered Black. LOOKS GREAT!

The Jeep IS carpeted with a replacement spice interior carpet. Normal wear and tear to be expected.
Best part is: UNDERNEATH THE CARPET IS CLEAN. No holes or rotting on the tub.READY TO HERCULINE!
I had planned on taking out the carpet and lining the tub with truck bed liner. I decided against it when I chose to sell. Some people want carpet for winter.

Also freshly painted front and rear bumpers/bumpettes along with the rear gas tank skid plate. They look brand new again!
The wheels were painted black as well. Very sharp. They are stock Jeep wheels with the JEEP Logo showing.
Also painted the mirrors back to black as well.
In the 2nd picture you can see the right turn signal bumper is missing. I am ordering one from quadratech. and should have it shortly. Only a couple of bucks

NOTE: In THESE pictures some rust is still visible on the frame. This is GONE! I can take other pics upon request.

Other notes:
The exhaust system was replaced in the summer. New catalytic converter and muffler installed.

Tires are still in good shape.
