Re: Jeep Year Ranges

last year for the YJ was 1995, they didn't make a "1996" swb model, the TJ came out mid year 1996 and i believe was called a 1997.

Re: Jeep Year Ranges

You are correct, sir! I do believe there was a Jeep in 1996, but they were sold as 1995's.

Re: Jeep Year Ranges

Actually you are both correct. The YJ's were called the '95.5 and the TJ's were called the '97, technically there was no '96 model year short jeep. That being said, my sister in laws boyfriend went out and bought a "new" jeep because everyone was geting one, and came home with a '95.5 YJ, and was disappointed when he found out he wasn't part of the fad. Our '97 was actually custom built for us in June/July '96, (ordered May, delivered September).
