basically a trim package only available in 95. I believe they were offered in champagne and moss green. They had spice interior and special inserts on the front seats. There should be a Rio Grande decal on the back. Other than that its a 4 popper jeep. Look for all the other normal problems associated with a 17 year old vehicle.

1995 Rio Grande - 2.5" Rancho Lift w/A/C added!

This is the Jeep we sold in 2005 to a family who flew out to SoCal from New York state. They were happy with the purchase. My ex-wife was happy with the $$ she made off of the sale!

Photos taken January 19, 2005 - Sold 1 month later...








After-market Air-Conditioning was added by ALL J PRODUCTS


Super-clean interior!

I'm also looking at a 93 that has some clutch issues, I read that pre 94 have the slave cylinder inside the bell housing. How much of a PITA is it to work on.

Well you have to pull everything to get to it and the design of the inlet tube sucks. Not very reliable when you get to banging off road. You can put a 94 bell housing and parts and conver to the external. But I sure hope the 95 is the deal. Good friend has one we tore into it the other day seals in Tcase and tranny.

Good luck with the search.

I have the 95 Rio Grande and am very pleased. A solid rig to say the least. Just make sure to check for rust!

In 2000, it was bought for $10.5K - It sold in 2005 for $9.5K - not bad depreciation, IMO.

Mine started as a Rio Grande. Lol. Over 185k and still going strong. It's just a trim package.

The 94 / 95 were the best year yj s imho. Again look for frame rust.

Well the day began with dreams of a new Jeep addition to the family, but my how they were quickly dashed. After a few vague text messages back and forth something began to smell a little bit. He was wanting to know how much I would give without ever seeing or test driving the RG. I said the price in the ad was not out of line so that may be a fair price but I still need to see and drive. After a few hours of not hearing back I finaly got the text that revealed it all. He is a kid that had his parent's buy this for him and he doesen't like it. Said he would have to ask mommy and daddy to be able to sell. I wanted to reach through the phone and choke his dumb little a**. So the search goes on.
