I am looking at a project jeep to do with my kids. On one YJ that I am looking at I cannot read the label on the inside of the drivers door to tell what year it is. What are the differences in YJ's over the years. One of the things that I noticed is that the gas fill is on the back of the jeep. I don't know if this helps or not.

YJ went from 87 to 85

87-90 are carb'd (6cyl)
91-95 are fuel injected (6 )

All 4 bangers are Fuel injected.

87-91 have the slant back roll bar, 92-95 have the newer family style cage

Aside from the roll cage there are not many obvious changes.

You can look at the inspection sticker, alot of times it will have the year, and there is a way to tell from the VIN also but I foget.

Idealy you want a 91+ 6cyl YJ, it is the most affordably buildable of them

Dashboards also changed around 91. If it has a clock in the dash then it may be pre-91.

Pics would be nice. Wink

ok, well from 89-91 they had triangular rollbars. and square head lights. Those are YJ's. From 92-95 they had the family style rollcage and square headlights. 1997 -2007 have the family style rollcage and the circle headlights
