1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport
Inline 6 Cylinder
5 Speed Manual Transmission
4 Wheel Drive
Coil Springs Front and Back
The interior is pretty much original except for the seats. The mileage is true according to the Auto Check report, but the Jeep runs great with no smoking and no leaks. There is a knob missing on the fan control. You can see the floors look great and in our undercarriage shots, you will see them from below.
The Auto Check Report shows a minor accident at some point. According to the seller, he was told it was a minor fender bender on I believe the front passenger side. It was just minor dent in the fender and there appears to be absolutely no damage to the structure. I believe the fender was just replaced at the time. The engine compartment looks great. There are no little signs of rust anywhere here.
The one thing to look for in these older Jeeps is a steering problem. We noticed the steering was a little loose, so our mechanic diagnosed the problem. The upper and lower steering U-Joints were both in need of being changed out. The Jeep owner does not have the time to get this done, so he ordered the parts and they will be included with the Jeep.
In watching some videos on the 2nd gen Jeeps from 1997 to 2006, these are the most desirable models right now. One thing to look for is rust on the frame. This Jeep looks very solid. We found no sign of rust.
You can see there appears to be no sign of leaks under here and no sign of rust.
The frame looks really good. This is the first place to show signs of rust on these Jeeps.
The Jeep comes with just as you see it. There is no soft top or hard top. The frame was not modified, so you can add a soft top with no problem. The louvered section of the hood is just an add on, there are ne real louvers in the hood.
The current owner just installed these tires and wheels jut less than a year ago. There are less than 1000 miles on them.
