Jeep Wrangler TJ Specs & Standard Features

Over the years, the Jeep Wrangler has undergone updates and design changes, with each bringing new technology and features to the table.

2nd Generation (TJ) 1996–2006


Jeep Wrangler Legacy

Though Jeep didn’t officially produce the “Wrangler” until 1986 with the release of the YJ platform, the model is a direct successor to the hyper-popular Jeep CJ, which ran from 1955–1986 and included the CJ-5, CJ-6, CJ-7, and CJ-8 Scrambler. These models were the direct successor to the first civilian Jeeps produced by Kaiser/Willys–civilian variants of the military Jeep MB. 

Back to the official “Wranglers”, the YJ rode on the success of the CJ, sporting a similar leaf-sprung, solid axle suspension. The Wrangler TJ was next-in-line, featuring an all-new quadralink suspension system with multi-link solid axles and the highly-acclaimed Rubicon. The immense success of the TJ carried its overall suspension design to the JK in 2007, which offered a complete redesign and two additional rear doors in the Wrangler Unlimited. The Wrangler JK persisted for over a decade until the release of the JL in 2018, which brought a sense of refinement to the platform. The Wrangler JL persists to this day, bringing us up to speed! 

The Wrangler is often viewed as the quintessential off-roader, featuring a small form factor, solid front and rear axles, and a no-nonsense, utilitarian design (up until the mid-2000s at least). The Wrangler’s devotion to off-road perfection has earned the model several awards, including: 

  • 10 consecutive SEMA "4x4/SUV of the Year" awards, until 2019

  • 2022 Four Wheeler SUV of the Year award

  • 2022 Women’s World Car of the Year award

  • Best SUV Lineup from the 2021 Newsweek Autos Awards
