1991 Jeep YJ Wrangler S – Auction Withdrawn
February 27, 2023 Update – The seller of this Wrangler reached out to us on Wednesday, February 22, 2023, after being rejected by Bring a Trailer. We move so quickly here at GuysWithRides that we agreed to list the Jeep that started the following day. However, after learning his father planned to sell this Wrangler, the seller’s son expressed an interest in keeping his dad’s Jeep instead. Consequently, we’re honoring this family’s updated wishes and are removing this Jeep from being auctioned. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

Produced since 1986, the Wrangler is a direct descendent of the original Jeeps that helped the Allied Forces win World War II. Introduced in 1986 when still under the control of French automaker Renault and by 1987 (the first model year) under the new ownership of Chrysler, the first-generation Wrangler, internally coded “YJ,” was, in fact, developed by American Motors Corporation (“AMC”). YJ Wranglers featured rectangular headlamps, differing from the round ones on its predecessors, the CJ Jeeps.
Although continuing many essentials, such as an open body with only minor modifications, on a separate frame, with the same wheelbase, part-time four-wheel drive with live rigid axles on leaf springs, both front, and rear, just like the CJ-7 – the new ‘Wrangler’ was a new design with a wider track, slightly less ground clearance, more comfort as well as improved safety and handling. The YJ Wrangler came standard with a 2.5 Liter AMC 150 inline-four, while a fuel-injected 190 horsepower 4.0 Liter AMC 242 inline-six was optional. The NP207 transfer case was used only for 1987 and replaced by NP231.
Here is the seller’s description of his YJ Wrangler in which he’s only added ten thousand miles during his sixteen years of ownership:
“I purchased 16 years ago (in Arizona) from a neighbor and kept it in a garage only to take for an occasional weekend drive with the top off. I only put on about 10K miles in all of those years. Most time was spent making everything work and adding little details and accessories to really make it my own. Repairs and/or upgrades within the last 10K miles includes: Winch and hi lift farm jack, tires, diamond tread plate trim, soft top, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, water pump, radiator, hoses, belts, motor mounts. Just passed Arizona emissions.”
