<strong>1997 Wrangler Sahara TJ</strong><br />
Probably the most significant technical upgrades in the history of Jeep debuted in 1996 for the '97 Wrangler TJ model. Those upgrades resulted in the best-performing Jeep since the first one was built, and they only got better from there. Even those with only a basic familiarity with Jeeps know the upgrades included a supple coil-spring suspension that improved both on- and off-road performance. Jeep was listening to the wheeling crowd when they offered a Dana 44 rear axle option. The TJ had a significantly improved interior and top. Best of all, it had round headlights.
