terpsmandan The interior was changed. Steering wheel from a Grand Cherokee, rounded corner radio, nicer seats.

Vinman Pretty much the entire interior changed in the 03 and up models along with the introduction the the 4 spd auto and new exterior mirrors. the hardtop now has no vents (tailgate is vented instead).
I think the 05 was the first year of the 6 speed manual.

ninjaturtle0 This is taken from wikipedia. Lots of changes happened after 2002. Good info.

In 1999, the fuel tank became standard at 19 U.S. gallons (72 L; 16 imp gal) capacity. There were some changes that occurred between the 2002 and 2003 years that made some parts difficult to directly swap back and forth, but also made it easy to identify certain years. From 1997 to 2002, the side door mirrors were black metal framed mirrors; and from 2003 to 2006 they were plastic molded mirrors. The fit of hard and soft tops is slightly different, and the fabric and colors available changed from 2002 to 2003. In 2003, the 3-speed automatic transmission was replaced with a 4-speed automatic with overdrive. It has the standard option of turning off overdrive with a dash switch if desired. The radio bezels went from a rectangle in 2002 to a rounded edged rectangle in 2003, so swapping these also required the console to either be swapped out or modified. The sound bar inside was changed to sound pods. The interior seats also changed design from 2002 to 2003, going from a rounder model to one with a distinct separation between back and headrest areas.**

2002 Jeep Wrangler Sport VS 2005 Jeep Wrangler Sport

What I would like to know is, what's the deference between 2002 Jeep Wrangler Sport and 2005 Jeep Wrangler Sport? Is it the suspension? Is it the size of the Jeeps? Is it the computer or engine? Is the seats or dashboard? What is the deference? I can tell you 2002 Jeep Wrangler is a five speed and 2005 Jeep wrangler is a six speed. What else?
