Classic is considered a higher trim level than sport. Classics have color matched bumpers and side trim and also have better front seats, power options, etc.

From less options to more options it goes SE, Sport, Classic, Limited.

A "Sport" only guarantees the 4.0L, but many of the options found on the classic such as power windows and doors were optional on the Sport as well. It really depends how it was built at the factory.

I have a 2000 sport with color match flares but black grille and bumper and "chrome" factory five spoke wheels but a factory CD player? 😳. Not a typical factory setup. Very interesting.

SOLD- '13 JKR with lots of goodies
Current- '98 TJ Sahara: build coming in October

My '96 Classic had manual windows and locks, as well as the standard seats. Only difference between it and my previous '96 Sport was the body colored flares.

1996 Classics are an odd bird. I think they used the Classic in '96 to use up some extra parts before the redesign. In 97+ they were more upscale than the sport. I've seen '96 Classics that didn't even have the full gauges, just a giant gas gauge and idiot lights like the SE.

My 2000 classic came with 16 inch wheels (icons) and power windows and locks. Most of the sports that I see in the junkyards had more options than my classic (overhead console, cruise, power seats). It's easy to get these factory options out of the junkyard and install them yourself. I love having cruise control and an overhead console.

I do like the look of the body colored flares, so at least the classic has that going for it.
