silly question

Ok, I'm gonna take a hit on the "man card" for this but how do you know which model you have? I.E. CJ TK TJ. the knowledge by far out weighs the brief embarassment.

Yes they took a break in 1996 to get ready for the release of the TJ in 1997.

Actually, the last AMC produced/built Jeeps were finished with the 1987 model years, when Chrysler purchased AMC/Renault. AMC designs were continued by Chysler from 1988, because they were, well GOOD...When YJ production ceased, the AMC-designed Wrangler was over.
