opinion on 95 \"S\" model YJ?
Does anybody have anything good/bad to say about this Jeep? I looked at it and drove it tonight. I'm thinking about buying it, but wanted to get some opinions first. It has a 2.5L, 5sp, soft-top, tilt, power steering, back seat,some sort of steel wheel factory upgrade, no accessories, all stock. They're asking $9000, I think it's a little high.

If your kidneys don't hurt, it's not a real Jeep!

Re: opinion on 95 \"S\" model YJ?
unless the jeep is in showroom condition, and has less than 10,000 miles on it, i wouldn't pay $9000, probably not eve 8 grand for a stock YJ thats 5 years old...the TJs are flooding the market now, and you can get a 97 with 50,000 miles on it, 4 cyl, 5speed for abot 7 or 8 grand here in FL...


If you cant DODGE it, JEEP it!

I just bought a '95 SE, 5 speed, 2.5l, w/ hardtop, and dealer is throwing in a softtop, 100% stock, for $10,500. It had 40,000 miles on it, and that price was a littl below book value. Of course I paid more cause I got it at a dealer. They did replace my catalytic converter, and speedometer sensor for free, since both were found to be defective, after I bought it (the advantage of buying from a dealer).

Re: opinion on 95 \"S\" model YJ?
I paid that for my 95 two years ago. Mine had Tuffy storage boxes all around also. It's tough to find a decent used Jeep in that price range around here in SC. Some tired old CJ's or almost brand new TJ's that some yuppie decided to trade back in for a Land Rover are all that's around. Why don't you go to the library and copy the NADA price and show it to the owner. I also got mine for $2500 under the asking price because of the 2.5, as they aren't as popular as the 4.0. Lots of folks don't like the 4 cyl. or the square headlights, but my Jeep is perfect for what I want it to do. let me know if you bought it, and buy a swb sticker for your Jeep!

for starters i would go to and enter milage and other items it has and see what it comes up with.

this would be a dealer price if it were in exlnt condition which no used rig is. this will give you an idea on the $9000 price!


i put in 50000 miles and got $10495

will you know you gotta make him an offer! try $7500!

Last december i found a 95 "s" wrangler, 2.5L stick, 60K miles and all it needed was a radiator and i payed $5700 for it, and it was in mint shape and completely stock, remember the "S" is that pretty much the base model with no options so it can't cost that much because they don't really give u that much, and also, i liked the "S" model because i can costomize everything myself.. anyway have a good one!

Re: opinion on 95 \"S\" model YJ?
kellybluebook always seems to have prices on the high side. prices are more reasonable in my opinion. Of cousre it depends on if your buying or selling.

A Wrangler S is a stripped down base model with few (if any) options available. It was created to compete with the low priced imports. It uses the same parts as the standard Wrangler.

The price seems a little high for around here. Listed in today's paper are the following;
95 4 cyl 5spd hard top mags cd 66,000 $8700
95 5spd cd 59,000 $8500/offer
94 5spd cd sound bar alloy $7700
