Jeep Islander Information
- The Chrysler-produced Jeep YJ Wrangler was a sport-utility vehicle that replaced the popular but dated military-style CJ models, according to 4-the-love-of-jeeps.com.
- The Islander sat in the middle of the Wrangler trim options: above the low-end Base and Laredo models and below the Sport, Sahara, Renegade and high-end Rio Grande, according to Edmunds.com.
- The Islander was essentially an appearance trim package that included sunset Islander graphics on the exterior and body-colored wheel flares that were popular in Hawaii, according to Edmunds.com.
Under The Hood
- The Islander was offered with the base 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine with an optional three-speed automatic or standard five-speed manual transmission, according to thejeepwrangler.com.
- More than 685,000 YJ Wranglers were sold, although the specific number of Islander and other trim models are not broken down, according to thejeepwrangler.com
- The Islander and its trim siblings received an extended roll cage in 1992 to accommodate rear shoulder safety belts, and Jeep also offered all-wheel anti-lock disc brakes as an option at the same time, according to Edmunds.com.
