Jeep Information


1990 Jeep Wranger YJ Sahara Details:
Purchased, new in 1990
127,000 original miles
Original 6-cyl 4.2L (258 cu in) engine — recently serviced
5-speed Manual Transmission
Original factory soft top
Factory air conditioning (does not work — ability to restore unknown, as I’ve had no need of it)
Speedometer reflects correct speed, due to differential gearing that corrects for oversized tires
Tachometer does not function, due to Mopar EFI kit’s required check engine light for smog compliance

Modifications:

Power:
Mopar Multiport Elenctronic Fuel Injection (better fuel mileage, passes CA smog, greater power, runs well even on steep inclines)
CARB-approved Borla header
CARB-approved Borla cat-back exhaust (retained OEM catalytic converter for smog compliance)

Strength/Endurance:
Dynatrac “High Clearance” Dana 60 rearend
M.I.T. transfer case slip yoke eliminator and C.V. driveshaft (reduces driveline vibration)
Extended-travel front driveshaft
Brand new center force clutch
Brand new Advance Adapters clutch slave cylinder relocation bell housing
Brand new clutch slave cylinder
Wrangler Power Products dual battery kit
Dual AGM batteries (3 years old)

Suspension Flex:
Spring-Over-Axle conversion (increased tire clearance, while maintaining suspension flex)

Trail/Rock Crawling Control:
ARB air lockers front and rear
Terraflex Terra-Low 4-to-1 transfer case with 2-wheel-low option

’Net: This Jeep is the ideal “trail toy.” It’s definitely no “trailer queen.” It has suffered *no* major trail damage, but it does have some minor scratches, dents and imperfections. I can honestly say that I, as the driver, have presented the only limitation as to where this Jeep can go: It has the power and flex to crawl over almost any obstacle that the driver has the guts to try.
