1989 Jeep Wrangler Islander
(Greenville, South Carolina)
I own a 1989 Jeep Wrangler Islander edition. It has 4 inches of lift and 33x12.50 bfg mt km2 tires. It also has a different 4 speed transmission, 1975 CJ5 clutch, lower gear ratio, custom axles, custom front and rear bumpers, alloy rims, new seats, and a new carb.
Other than upgrades and normal parts and up keeping costs I have never had any problems with it other than the steering column. A few bolts came loose on the inside around 117,000 miles. It only cost me $65 to have it fixed. And a U-joint on the back had to be replaced for $115. Other than that it has been the best car that I have ever owned.
Even with all the after market work that has been done, it is still my daily driver and is great in the city. I only get 10 mpg but that's a small price for an amazing Jeep. Not only is it fun to drive but it is great to be able to drop the top and doors in the summer and just drive.
And for anyone looking to buy a Wrangler or CJ I would like to add that girls love them.
Good luck and happy Jeeping OlllllOLarry's Comment: That's a beauty James!
