I like to see prices on the rise, it will make my project worth more in the end. It may have 150K on it but it will be perfect when I get thru. Got it for $1500 knowing it had some issues and in need of a reskin soft top, at least 2 tires and paint. Ive mostly been snatching out all eliminated systems since the BBD is gone. I replaced brake hydraulics and rebuilt the tilt steering column. Ive got about $300 in little stuff and now all safety stuff is working like brakes,brake lights, blinkers, headlights, wipers and the horn. I fixed the clock too!
Figure I will have about $3500 in it when I am done and I will get that back and more IF I ever sell it.

|95YamJam||So what if you have a 95' TJ..... LOL|

OBD2 is not hard, but back then all the manufacturers were adapting, guess the Wranger wasnt their top priority, but it sure should have been....

|OverkillYJ||Yeah that 95 technicality is a pain. The vins come up as 95 too even though mine is from Dec 95. The thing is in PA I need emissions done for inspection. If it is a 96 or newer it is a machine everyone has. If it is a 95 or older you have to get it on a dyno which is harder to find. I showed the guy the manufacture date last time I got inspected hoping they would use the new machine and save me the hassle but since the vine is registered as a 95 I still have to do the dyno. So stupid.|

|stykthyn||Mine was built 9/95. Title says 95 on it.|

|zero_chance||Man, seeing some of those prices, I really got a steal. Paid 1400 for mine a year ago, previous owner had put a newer frame into it shortly before the sale, zero rust on the frame at all, 3.5 inch suspension lift, 2 inch body lift on 33x12.5s, full hard doors, hard top and bikini top. Granted, the springs sag a little on the passenger side and the tub had a few rot spots. Just got done replacing the tub, fenders, tailgate and grille, so now theres zero rust anywhere. Even with the new sheet metal, Im still clocking in at under 2K spent on it.|

|P0234||It was silly for Chrysler to not acknowledge the 96 Jeeps. If it was made after August 1995, it should have been a 1996.|
|07-15-2012 09:28 AM|
|DILLIGAF||It says 95/12 for manufactured and so it hit the showroom floor in late January, and wala there you have a 96? Right?|
|07-15-2012 08:22 AM|
|Ibuildembig||What does the title say?|
|07-15-2012 08:15 AM|
|stykthyn||Hey I got one of those too!|

|07-15-2012 01:47 AM|
|sicyj||hey laugh at me all ya want. 96, 97, whatever. the point is that the last of the yjs were 95 and keeping up with the crappy tjs & jks, well, i could care less. so if i made a mistake in saying 96, please oh lord, please forgive me, i meant 97, sue me !|
|07-14-2012 11:45 PM|
|BAP||some one better hurry up and snatch it up before it hit,s 15,000|
|07-14-2012 10:09 PM|
|busemans||there is one for 12k on craigslist here. an 87|
|07-14-2012 10:08 PM|
|Driller||weren't some of the 95 yj's sold overseas as 96 model year jeeps? Driller|
|07-14-2012 09:47 PM|
I know for sure my YJ was one of the most sought after jeeps.
Then I made two payments and they stopped looking for it.
|07-14-2012 09:47 PM|
|Ibuildembig||That's still a 95, the 97s came out in 96|
|07-14-2012 09:42 PM|
|07-14-2012 09:38 PM|
|OverkillYJ||Lmfao! Ha ha ha. I got a late model 95 which is actually a 96, but that comment is funny.|
|07-14-2012 09:29 PM|
Picked mine up for $1800 8 months ago, wouldn't idle, leaking oil all over the place, with all sorts of electrical problems. I have probably 75 hours into her, running strong now, zero oil leaks, rides smooth, and all the lights plus the radio even work. Pretty sure if I put it in the classifieds around here I could get $4k for it today.
Best part is I really only have about $150 in all the repairs. I know the "What is your time worth argument" but I work on it because I enjoy it, so I don't count that.
|07-14-2012 09:12 PM|
U lost all credibility at "..96..."
Come on! Even I know that
|07-14-2012 09:09 PM|
|brokeagin||Not trying to take anything away from the TJ and newer Jeeps but i was looking for a CJ 7 or a YJ. Due to their simplicity (no ABS, air bags, etc.) they seemed like the last of the true Jeeps. However CJ's all seemed over priced so they got ruled out pretty quickly. I paid 3800.00 for mine and feel like I got a great deal.|

I don't know about a "YJ being the most desireable Jeep" but I've been told that a car reaches it's maximum depreciation when it's 15 y/o.
Our YJ's are past max depreciation; they're now appreciating!!

|Ibuildembig||Yup me too, parked in the garage next to my 83 corvette and right behind my 98 f350|
