Canadian YJs?

I was checking a vin on a Jeep I am looking at. Came up that it was manufactured in Canada. Is there anything bad about that (besides the obvious)?

I believe most if not all the YJ's were assembled in Canada. I have a 1987 YJ and it was.

They had a unique identifier that was only used that year. The YU designation was later changed to become what we now call the TJ.

Just another one of those useless facts that few know about and nobody will ever use.

I read that YJ is actually a true Canadian Jeep, in America its a Wrangler not a YJ. I have a Canadian model if that actually matters. The vin starts with 2.

1- United States - Manufacture country
p- Toledo #1, Ohio, USA - Plant Location

Decode your vine HERE!
For newer YJ's your info is listed under Chrysler Era Sequences.
If you don't understand how the site or decode works private message me and I can help you.

A true canadian YJ actually had YJ decals on the side, like where sahara and sport put there's. Although there are canadian yj's in the states, as well as USA made.

As you can see from the above mine is good old USA!

When the YJ came out, it was made at the Brampton, Ontario AMC plant initially. This was the same plant that had made CJ7s in later years. You could tell the Canadian CJs from the Toledo CJs, in that the embosed name on the lower cowl was "Joop" with the 'e's painted, out of the Canada plant. In the Toledo plant the name was stamped "Jeep." (All YJs have the "Joop" stamping)

When and whether YJ production was moved Stateside I don't know. The TJ was run out of a new plant on the grounds at Toledo.

Both my 95s are American built (Toledo) for the Canadian market (including the Canadian specific options), The registration information on Jeep YJs in Canada does indicate the model as a "WRAangler" though it's physically labeled and stickered as a YJ in the market... Jeep was not permitted to use "Wrangler" as their brand/model name in Canada as it was already owned and tradmarked by GM for a trim level in the 4x4 work trucks in 82.

My ole' Yj has all the traits of a fine lady... Everything bad that has happened was always my fault and at least once every month it refuses to warm up for no apparent reason then of course it wines incessantly from the top end for several days.
