Jeep Wrangler (YJ) Guides

Jeep Wrangler YJ

  • While the Jeep CJ series was much loved for its utilitarian characteristics, there came a time for a change when the market started leaning towards compact 4WDs that can also be used as daily drivers. The Spartan design of the CJ and not-so-comfortable ride on the street didn’t appeal to the crowd who aimed for comfort during commutes. AMC then decided to discontinue the CJ series production in 1986 and introduce the 1987 Jeep Wrangler YJ as its replacement.
  • The Wrangler YJ was designed to mix in the good qualities of its predecessor, the CJ-7, with improved ride quality and passenger car comfort. The YJ was made to be more comfortable on the road, making it a good daily driver as well. Still, the then-new Jeep Wrangler held on to the off-road capabilities and durability of the CJ series.
  • Aside from improved comfort and ride quality, AMC also tried to enhance the Wrangler’s appearance. The then-new design featured a wider track and less ground clearance. The YJ also sported a new grille and a larger windshield. The rectangular headlights gave it quite a distinct look. It still retained the leaf spring suspension in the CJ, but it used wider springs and had track bars and sway bars for smoother handling.
  • The YJ was a factory designation, a name derived from an engineering code. However, some would like to think that the YJ stands for Yuppie Jeep or Young Jeep because of its design. They said that this Jeep was meant for younger potential Jeep buyers who don’t really pay too much attention to off-road prowess.
  • The Jeep Wrangler later on became a status symbol, not only for off-road enthusiasts but also for young professionals, women, and students. The Wrangler now has a broader market reach because of the changes made to improve ride comfort, especially for street use.
  • Jeep traditionalists didn’t easily fall deep in love with this new model. There was a mix reaction when the YJ first came out because of the striking changes made, specifically the rectangular headlights. But over time, it did earn its own stripes among old-timers and new-generation Jeep enthusiasts.

Jeep Wrangler YJ: Usual Problems That Need to Be Checked

When the YJ replaced the much-loved CJ series to bring in improved comfort features and something that can be used as a daily driver, Jeep fans didn’t easily fall in love with the Wrangler. It took time before they came around, as the YJ later on proved itself to have a great design that mixes off-road capabilities with street drivability. If you’re driving a Jeep Wrangler YJ or thinking of getting a second-hand Jeep, you must know some of the common YJ problems that may need immediate attention and care:

Common problems with used YJ

When buying a pre-loved Jeep Wrangler YJ, you have to check a couple of things before sealing the deal. See if the exhaust manifold is still intact or already cracked and test the turn signal and headlight switch. Test-drive the Wrangler to find out if there’s an engine performance problem, brake issue, any unusual noise, or drive shaft vibrations. The YJ shouldn’t lose its off-road capabilities and should drive smoothly on paved road. It should be safe to use even if it’s old.

Have the vehicle checked for broken mounts and for leaks on the differential, rear main seal, and other components. Some parts of the YJ may already be replaced and you have to check if they’re still working right. See if the radiator, water pump, fan clutch, and trans clutch are still up to snatch.

Other common issues with second-hand Jeep Wrangler YJs are rusty drain holes and floor pans, a rotten windshield frame, and a faulty carburetor.

Jeep Wrangler recalls

See if the YJ you’re buying or driving is part of the recall campaigns issued for Wrangler models. These recalls involve issues with the park brake pedal assembly, brake hose, oxygen sensor/catalytic converter, and disc brake rotors. If the YJ is part of the recall, it should have been taken to the dealership to have the issue fixed. If not, then the problem should be repaired by a skilled mechanic. Get in touch with the dealership to see what can be done. It would be highly advised that you check technical service bulletins for the Jeep Wrangler.

Getting Your Jeep Wrangler (YJ) Ready for the Great Outdoors

Outdoor enthusiasts can attest to the endurance and reliability of their Wranglers. From the gnarly traffic of an urban jungle to rocky mountainous trails, this Jeep can drive through the most difficult terrains. On and off the road, the Wrangler will always stand out as a leader in capability and power. Since it was designed for the rugged outdoors, cleaning and maintaining it can be challenging. As an owner, keeping it in pristine condition is an absolute must. Below are some basic tips on how to get your Wrangler ready for the Great Outdoors.

  • Don't skip basic maintenance.

Not all Jeep Wranglers were created equal. Some of them were driven on paved roads while others through rough terrains. No matter what type of adventure your Wrangler takes you, basic maintenance is still key to its longevity. Engine oil and its filter must be changed every 5,000 miles. Have its joints greased regularly and its serpentine drive belt replaced every 60,000 miles. Tire rotation is highly recommended every 5,000 miles. Have their pressure checked while filling your Jeep up. If you're really passionate about your Jeep, never skip basic maintenance.

  • A clean interior is a comfortable interior.

Nobody wants to hop into a dirty interior, even if the Jeep was built for off-road adventures. The accumulation of dust and mud can permanently damage its interior. After a day of adventure, give your vehicle's interior a well-deserved cleaning. Remove the mats, carpet and wash away any mud or dirt residue. Installing slush mats is the best way to keep the interior floor protected from snow, water or mud. They also help keep the carpet and interior clean. Seats also need protection against water, muddy clothes and premature wear and tear. Neoprene or vinyl seat covers can make a huge difference in your Jeep's interior.

  • Keeping the Jeep's soft and hard top pristine.

The Wrangler's top keeps its driver and passengers protected from the harsh elements. However, tops are prone to wear and tear. Dirt, grime, bird droppings and even the sun's rays can shorten the lifespan of these tops. Clean them regularly to keep them pristine. Avoid parking under trees since their sap can contribute to the rapid wear of your Jeep's top (including the body's paintwork). Never use window-cleaning products containing ammonia and alcohol. They dry out the plastic windows, which leads to discoloration. If the windows become foggy or hazy, use plastic restoration kits to fix them. Car wax can also be applied on Wrangler hard tops to protect it from the elements.

  • Add an extra layer of protection with accessories.

When preparing your Jeep for an outdoor adventure, it's best to add some accessories to keep it clean and protected. A bra or front-end cover helps protect its front grill from bugs and rock chips while driving through a gravel path. Don't worry, the front-end cover is easy to install. For Jeep owners who don't have space for a covered garage, there are vehicle covers available on the market. These covers can protect your Jeep against the elements and harmful rays of the Sun. Keep it pristine with these aftermarket accessories.

Take note of these tips and you'll be driving your Jeep Wrangler (YJ) into the Great Outdoors for the next decade.
