Brent, Jeep manufactured the YJ 1995 model year long and introduced the 97 TJ early so their really wasn't a time you couldn't go in and buy a new Wrangler.

 

And for extra points...Jeep was dropping the 4.0L into the YJ, ZJ, and the XJ in the mid 90's. The engine manufacturing plant couldn't keep up with the demand so they put the engine on restriction for almost the entire 1995 model year of the YJ. :fs1:

I've been plunking around the Internet-forums and such-and I ran across the acronym WMS. Somehow it refers to measurements of axles and I think it's about the width.

 

I'm pretty dull in the head right now (two nephews visiting-boy do they have a lot of energy!) and I can't figure out what WMS stands for.

 

Anyone?

Hey, I am new here. What do you expext? :) Seriously though, I was looking for it because I didn't know what it was when I saw it on the forum. Once I found it (thanks google), I realize I had done an SOA on one of my trucks before the internet was out.

This is the basic list I have in my head from being in dealership parts for several years. :cheers:

 

I straightened a few out. Here’s the bigger list.

 

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Jeep_vehicles

 

An example of the postal delivery Jeeps DJ-5G ‘78 to ‘80 was a carbureted 2.0L VW Audi motor with custom 904 automatic. I had one I was going to hook up to a VW/Audi 5 cyl diesel but my wife hated the ex- Ice Cream truck!

Volvo used that motor with their version of an AW-3 transmission. I don’t think they got the Overdrive AW4 version.
