1987 Wrangler YJ
The Wrangler was much maligned by Jeep purists when it debuted in 1986 as an '87, but it really was a great enhancement of the CJ. (If only it had come with round headlights!) The suspension was improved enough to get the consumer advocates off Jeep's back for the most part but, most importantly, left the YJ with approximately the same stock trail performance and buildup potential. Shown is the first production Wrangler held by the Chrysler Museum.
