1998 Jeep Wrangler
4.0L, AUTO TRANS, FULL HARDTOP, 2.5" LIFT KIT, PROCOMP WHEELS, GREAT DRIVER!
HIGHLIGHTS: Classic '90s Wrangler ready for fun daily use! Black on red! Full hardtop! Peppy 4.0L six-cylinder and automatic transmission!
BODY OVERVIEW: Formerly a Northern vehicle, The body on this Jeep is in overall good condition, with the exterior being very straight showing only a few outwards signs of metal deterioration. This Jeep appears to be largely original sheet metal, and like most Jeeps it does have some rust showing in some areas. But, don't let that scare you as the majority of the frame was repaired with a frame overhaul kit, and as can be seen from the photos it was installed properly and brought new life to this Wrangler.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint is in good overall condition, but does appear to be original or an older repaint. Wear and tear is typical of a jeep this age, but it does not appear to have lived a life of heavy abuse. The paint could probably go for a nice buff job, but it shines well enough for daily driver duty.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior appears to be almost all original, and the aftermarket red Smittybuilt bucket seats are both a welcome and an attractive upgrade. The locking center console and aftermarket stereo finish it out nicely! The front seats are in near-new condition, while the original rear seat and door panels are in good original condition. The gauges, stereo, and heat all work properly.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is the mighty Jeep 4.0L inline six cylinder. This engine has that distinctive Jeep sound, and has achieved legendary status over the years for providing adequate power and extreme reliability. Based on the AMC 258 (4.2L) inline six, this is a power plant with provenance. This Jeep fires right up, and sounds smooth through the OEM-style muffler. It drives straight, steers tightly, and delivers a pleasant ride.
Sitting on a modest 2.5" lift kit and well-fitted tires make this Jeep a pleasure to drive, which is pretty hard to come by in a CJ, Wrangler, or any other old Jeep. This is the perfect option for fair-weather daily driving!
