Sahara...More options installed,19 gallon fuel tank for that year also,on 97 sport was an option,(if I'm not wrong)
My friend drives a 97 sport and i have a 00 sahara,There is a big difference on the standard features,plus the options allready installed on mine,like full doors,A/C,Alluminum wheels(grand canyon),31's all terrain,factory fog lights,side bars,cd player,sound bar,nicer seats,etc etc.

Just noticed that those jeeps are from NY, man check out underneath, every jeep I have seen from NY state looks terrible underneath from the winter road treatments up there, 5 years old up top, 40 years old underneath...

it will wont really make a difference unless you want lockers or 35's, but it would help the resale vales, and if you get bitten by the bug!
i was thinking about it and if the dealers dishonest he could give you a shot of a different skid and you would have no way of telling until you got it, so make sure their reputable

|4.0l sahara||thats the rear axle it's eathier has a dana 35 or 44.The 44 is better but even if you get one with a 35 don't worry.Chances are they both have d35's.|

I would go for sport
less miles and i believe the only big difference between sahara and sport is AC and painted fenders, although i could be very wrong
i agree ask for a picture of the skid plates and see if it had been abused odd road and ask to see if it has the Dana 44 rear dif. those two things would be what would sway my opinion

Dude has a lift in his driveway, we are all jelous!!
In an effort to stay on topic, isn't there someone on the forum from Clinton NY? For some reason that sounds familiar. Wouldn't it be nice to send someone impartial to check it out for you.
From my point of view I would go with the Sahara. A year newer and a higher end model with only a few more miles. It shure would be nice to be able to crawl around underneath and look for any neglect or abuse.

|binaryking||Go with the 98. I don't trust 97's. No offense to owners of that year.|

|dwdrums801||garcia6767 you look like you have a sick fin jeep on your avatar...post some pics of that ii wanna see haha|

|05-31-2007 09:01 PM|
|jjseel||T.J. models start at S.E., then X, Sport, Sahara and Rubicon. Each package has more stuf on it, but you could special order I guess just about anything...My 2000 Sport has the D44|
|05-31-2007 09:01 PM|
|4.0l sahara||Don't worry if it has a d35 choose the one you like better.|
|05-31-2007 08:56 PM|
|Joe Dirt||Get the VIN from the dealer and then you can punch up a build sheet and find out what axle, ect it has.|
|05-31-2007 08:54 PM|
|05-31-2007 08:39 PM|
Yeah.. just found out my Sahara has a D35
However.. I still love it
Whichever you choose.. you will be happy with the purchase.
PS - I have a job interview in Conn. tomorrow.. coincidence? hmmmmm...
|05-31-2007 08:36 PM|
|4.0l sahara||not many more have d44's than sports most still have d35's mine does.|
|05-31-2007 08:27 PM|
|AzTJ||Also - Sahara's are more common to have a D44 in the rear|
|05-31-2007 08:12 PM|
|05-31-2007 08:02 PM|
|Hackle||First off I am not a TJ owner. With that said as I understand it the Sport model is the base model and the Sahara is the upgraded model. The Sahara should have a few more options installed. HTH|

I drive a '98 Sahara and I love it. I have driven a few others and I do think mine rides a little better. However, I am a bit partial
I wouldn't look for a very smooth ride from any wrangler though. You are still going to feel bumps and when the wind picks up you're going to know about it. My advice, test drive them both and see what ya like better. That sahara may have a crappy ride, who knows!
Good luck and welcome to the Forum

Sahara or Sport, need help
Hi everyone, I am new to the forum, I need some advice and one question to be answer, I hope you guys can help me because I am planning to buy one of these models, but do not know the difference, please help me
1998 Jeep Wrangler Sahara or 1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport they are both selling for $6,995, both are automatic, both are 6 cyc., both are soft top . Sport has 96,000 miles, Sahara has 107,000 miles both are in very clean condition inside and outside.
The question is which one has a smoother ride?, which one should I buy?
