Terry in deep with Diane's YJ


The Wrangler (YJ) was produced from 1987 until 1995.

Larry Soo's most excellent Wrangler (YJ) FAQ.

Drive Train


The YJ came with the AMC 2.5L I4 engine standard and the AMC 4.2L(258) I6 optionally until '89. In 1990, the 4.0L I6 was introduced.


The AX-5 and BA 10/5 were used with the I4 and I6. The BA 10/5 was discontinued in mid-1989 and the AX-15 was used with the 4.2L I6 and 4.0L ever after. The TF 904 3 speed automatic was used with the I4 and the TF 999 was used with the I6 engines.

Transfer Case

The NP-207 was used in 1987. After 1987, the NP-231 was used.

Front Axle

A reverse cut Dana 30 was used as the front axle in the YJ.

Rear Axle

The factory only used the Dana 35c in the rear of the YJ.

Are there any intermitten wiper wiper modules from other vehicles I can use? Can i use a Dodge durango steering box from an earlier model?

Aside from the stepper motor on the stock carter carb, is their any reason for the ECU to be there? I'm looking to go with a webber carb and to simplefie my jeep to more of a CJ7 standard of opperation. Looking to loose as many wires and hoses as possible. LOL

Looking for a turn Signal/horn contact for a 88 yj I cannot believe there is none out there. You can get just the plastic plate but the horn button does not come with. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you
