Lots of little things like the driver seat no longer flips forward, battery tray is different, front axle disconnect is different, has larger front axle ujoints, electric speedo sensor instead of mechanical

Also if its a hardtop than you get one with a wiper and defog

And a 4.0 that's fuel injected.

That's a big one.

Yeah, the '95s have all sort of little niceties and upgrades that individually aren't a big deal, but when you add them all up it's awesome.

I don't think TJ-style hood bumpers and often hinges have been mentioned.

Galvenized frame, though? Huge.

Nonsense. Most of the changes are upgrades to existing components or merely rethought after they realized the problems with the older systems.
