Based on Jeep’s military CJ-7, the second-generation Wrangler, known also as the TJ, was first introduced in 1996. Unlike the original, the TJ had a few extra comfort options, but it was still very much a Wrangler. This 2000 Sahara edition is reported to have just 52,000 original miles on the road, and its record shows an extensive list of modifications that we will get into further into the discussion. What’s most important is that this stunning SUV is currently up for sale, and for any classic SUV enthusiast, this find is gold.
From a distance, this 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara looks like any old SUV from the early 2000s, but that is the beauty of these modifications. Upon closer inspection, you will see that the vehicle carries aftermarket Smittybilt bumpers. The front bumper even includes upgraded lights and a custom Smittybilt winch that is reported to have never been used, while the rear bumper fully replaces the original, and almost morphs into a tire carrier. There’s also a rather prominent LED light bar across the front in case the meaty tires didn’t convince you that this was built like a proper off-roader. Still, the owner reports that the 16" Factory OEM Jeep Rubicon wheels with BF Goodrich tires will be included in the sale, as well as the original Canyon wheels, plus the Wrangler’s brown soft-top. Finally, it's worth noting that this Sahara has new shocks both front and back, an updated Dana axle from the factory, factory full doors, a new stabilizer, as well as a new Bikini Top with a windscreen that can be operated with the soft-top included in the sale. The tan interior of this 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara is pretty much how it was when it came out, apart from a set of WeatherTech floor mats for the front and rear, aftermarket radio with a cd player and Bluetooth compatibility, and of course, a fresh set of speakers.
Under the hood of this 2000 Jeep Wrangler is the legendary 4.0L inline-6 engine. This specific engine produces around 180hp, but is most known for its durability, with most Wranglers easily cresting 200,000 miles without any problems. This specific example is said to have gone through recent oil and maintenance checks, making it ideal to buy and drive.
