Not sure. I basically have the same as you but mine had no hard top when I purchased it from seller, my a/c was afterthought not stock. Mine is a LAREDO. 4.2l I-6.

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) 1987-1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ<

did you use the vin off the jeep or off the title/registration?

I have had troubles with reading the numbers from vin tags before and good luck with the registration.

lol, then there you go. Wish I could be more help, but I have had problems doing the same thing over the years. Seems the rigs I get have a tendency to be special or something; and not in a good way.

Laredo is the mid model; nothing wrong with them as I see it. Not sure what their stock options were, but I suspect its a 6cyl at its base. Did you buy the carfax report?

I suspect they can be correct, but Ive seen them report many different things and not all are because of problems or accidents.
