I don't have pictures but, basically, you have the sport (the cheapest one) is a basic 4X4. As you go to the Sahara, you get a much nicer Jeep. Painted fenders and nicer interior.
Then the Rubicon has equipment specifically for hard core off roading. Bigger tires, better gears and the like.
Many of these models even have sub-models which is mostly apperance packages.

The Wrangler Wikipedia page is very helpful, but excluding special editions the progression goes, Base SE, Sport, Sahara, Rubicon.

Best place to go is the source itself, the Jeep website shows every model is shown including 2Dr and Dr versions.

I got a Jeep Wrangler brochure from the dealership that breaks down what every trim level has standard and option. It was free.

DD, (Daily Drivers). Sports, pretty much so stock.
Maul crawlers. 4 doors with big wheels and lots of chrome.
Those that use them off road. Rubicons, and modified others.

COURTESY OF MIKEMTJ:

Well, I'm making this post to help some of the newcomers understand what they have, and provide a few great resources. This isn't a guide that has my advice, or my opinions...just straight facts about whats in your Jeep.

Engines:

6 Cylinders
4.2 L AMC 258 was used from 1987 to 1991
4.0 L AMC 242 from 1991-1995

4 Cylinders
2.5 L AMC 150

Transmissions:
6 Clyiners

Manual-
Peugeot BA-10 1987-1989
Aisin AX-15 1988-1995

Auto-
TF999 1987-1992 Non lock up
TF999 1992-1995 Electronic Shift
The electronic shift years could be wrong.

4 Cylinders

Manual
Aisin AX-5 1987-1995

Automatic
TF904 1994-1995

Transfer Case
Some YJ's from 1987 came with the NP207, the rest came with the NP231

Towing Capacity:
Frame is rated to pull 2,200 pounds.

Axles
Front
D30

Rear
D35

Differential Gear ratios
6 Cylinders
3.07 or 3.55
From everything I've see, these are the most common. If someone could
throw some more numbers out there with years, that would be great.

4 Cylinders
4.10

It gets tough especially with the mods that are done. Turn signals moved to the grill, flat fenders cut fenders lifts tires etc. CJ grill hoods put on YJs, motor swaps....and on and on and on.

I have been around "Jeeps" since '94 and thought I "knew most of the "recent" models options......turns out there was a Sahara Rubi built a few years back.....like only a 1000 of them for the "Sahara movie" ....... a guy in the local Jeep club has it and IDK if he even realizes what it is......OBTW it is an "LJ" "Sahara RUBI"....told him keep it close to stock probably be a collector thing someday. MY whole point there are A LOT of "variations" of JEEPS........don't accept everything as "fact" double check it. Good LUCK!!!
