6 Things You May Not Know about the Jeep Wrangler TJ

  • Jeep owners carry a tradition of waving at each other upon meeting them either on the streets or on the trail. CJ owners started this custom to acknowledge those who own the same Jeep model, which is, undoubtedly, different from other vehicles around. This habit was adopted by other Jeep owners, such as those that drive a YJ and a TJ, just for the purpose of recognizing everyone who have the same passion as theirs when it comes to vehicles and driving, as well as to carry on traditions.
  • In 2012, Jeep released a version of Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon that was inspired by Activision's Call of Duty video games. These models featured 'Call of Duty: MW3 Special Edition' graphics on their front fenders as well as on the spare tire cover.
  • The Jeep Wrangler is a direct descendant of the famous Willys MB, the Jeep model used by the U.S. Army during the World War II. This is through the Willys civilian Jeeps Jeep CJ which was produced in mid-1940s and lasted through 1980s. Among the features the Wrangler inherited from its predecessors are separate frame and body, rigid live axles both at the front and rear, and a fold-flat windshield. Like the CJs, the Wrangler can also be driven without doors.
  • Before the 1997 Jeep TJ went into production, there were three prototypes contending for what the Jeep 1997 TJ would become—the Jeep CJ predecessor, the long-spring version of YJ, as well as the prototype adopting XJ/ZJ link coil suspension.
  • The Jeep Wrangler is one of the brand’s most awarded models. In May 2009, it was named by the Business Week magazine as One of the Most Iconic Cars of the Last 20 Years. The Kelley Blue Book also gave the Wrangler many recognitions, including 2009 Best Resale Value Award in the SUV category and the Best Resale Value Award in the compact sport utility vehicle category. This model also got numerous awards and recognitions from Forbes Autos, Petersen's 4-Wheel and Off-Road magazine, Four Wheeler magazine, and Canadian Black Book.
  • The Jeep Wrangler TJ was the last production vehicle to be fitted with AMC-related parts as the AMC Straight-4 engine was discontinued after the 2002 model year, and both the AMC Straight-6 engine and the AMC door handles retired in 2006.

  • Problems You’ll Probably Encounter with Your Jeep Wrangler TJ 9 September 2015

    Jeep Wrangler TJs are among the most capable off-road vehicles available from the factory, what with all their heavy-duty off-roading components and numerous options designed to make the vehicle capable of negotiating with and withstanding all the rigors of off-road driving. But no matter how powerful and capable your Wrangler TJ is, it also has its own share of flaws and downsides. Here are some of the common problems TJ owners like you may probably encounter along the course of your vehicle ownership:


    During serious off-roading, the lower control arm mounts on the TJ’s front axle can fold. One way you can solve this is to use aftermarket pre-cut weld-on reinforcement plates to box in the vehicle’s factory mounts. After welding such reinforcement plates into the mounts, you can expect they will serve you well for a reasonable period.


    Some Wrangler owners reported trouble in shifting the transfer case. But, this is rarely a serious internal problem, so it shouldn’t stop you from enjoying your ride. This problem, which is oftentimes caused by worn-out body bushings or installation of a body lift, can be remedied by doing simple adjustments on the T-case shift rod.


    Despite the Jeep’s hardwearing suspension, it isn’t spared from troubles, particularly because it is the system that negotiates with the terrain to make the vehicle successful in taking you from point A to point B. The TJ’s factory-installed rear track bar bracket may cause tear on the axle tube, especially if you’ve lifted your ride. This can be avoided by strengthening it using heavy-duty weld-on or bolt-on reinforcement. Since the TJ’s stock Y-shaped tie rod assembly comes with thin walls and small-diameter tubing, it may bend on the passenger-side when the wheels are totally turned to the right.

    The vehicle’s tapered tie rod ends can also have troubles when used beyond their original design parameters. If you will add heavier axle, larger wheel-and-tire assembly, as well as bigger leverage from a lift kit, this factory-installed tapered front tie rod end located at the frame mount usually gets loose and sloppy or, worse, snap altogether. So if you’re upgrading your axle, putting bigger tires and wheels, or lifting your TJ, you might as well upgrade to an aftermarket track bar assembly that could better handle such changes.
