Are you looking for interior shots or color options? I only have one pic of mine currently, it's in my garage. You can click on the link under my avatar. It's just a bone stock Rio Grande. I bouight it & drove it for a couple of weeks, then pulled it in the shop & started working on it. I'll get some better pics of it when I get the tranny put back in.

The Rio Grande was a poor mans Sahara. It was the cheap Jeep with special paint & interior. All had the 4 banger, some had options like A/C, factory side steps & I believe the soundbar was standard equipmemnt on the RG's.

Mine is as loaded as a RG could get. Full doors, hard top, A/C, dealer add on delay wipers, cruise, & an aftermarket remote start system. I pulled the A/C ( converting it to on board air), the cruise & remote start were DOA, so I yanked them as well. I have no need for any of that stuff on my rig. The delay wipers are nice tho, I did keep those because they're the only add on that still works.

My first Wrangler was a 95 RG in the Champagne color with half doors & a black soft top. Sadly I don't even have any pics of it. This was '98 or so before taking a mess of pics became all the rage. lol.

I had a 3" body lift with 31" Cooper STT's on it. I was a great setup for a kid in highschool. After the Dana 35 blew, I found a local Jeep builder that had built a D44 to fit in a Wrangler & bought that for $400, swapped it in & never looked back. Had a lot of fun with it.

I guess we need to start an official Rio Grande roll call thread for RG owners. For a one year only Jeep, they sure made a bunch of them.

I've got a '01 TJ Sahara but lately I've become really attracted to YJ's (probably my childhood obsession with Jurassic park). I just love the "rio grande" scheme. Something about cruisin' around the mojave in a jeep with the top off.

Both great looking rigs. I think the blue color was the rarest color for the RG's. I've never seen one in real life, only on the internet.

This is my Rio Grande





Here's a photo I took before I had it lifted, and you can get a nice view of the seat pattern.

Mine.



Nothing really left that makes it a RG. I just have the spice doors and dash left. All the seats are gone and the stickers did not survive my rear comp cut.
