Here Are the Craziest Jeep Wranglers For Sale on Autotrader

Good news: It’s Jeep Wrangler day here on Oversteer. In just a few minutes, I’m going to tell you what I think of the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler — and as a little prelude, I’ve decided to list the craziest Wrangler models currently listed on the site. Unfortunately, this doesn’t include the 6-wheel-drive Wrangler I recently featured, as it appears that one may have sold. But I still found five crazy Wranglers worth showing off to everyone who wants to see the most unusual Wrangler models you can buy today.

The Cheapest: 1995 Jeep Wrangler - $1,995

The Cheapest: 1995 Jeep Wrangler – $1,995

The cheapest Jeep Wrangler on all of Autotrader is this 1995 model for just $1,995. Before you get excited about a crazy Wrangler deal, be forewarned that the roll cage has been removed and it doesn’t appear to have an interior — or a roof. In fact, it’s odd how much the Wrangler looks like a pickup (and like the original military Jeeps) when it’s just a body and a windshield. It’s worth noting this Wrangler also appears to have some rust spots, which makes sense since the Carfax report shows it was in snowy Massachusetts and upstate New York until 2010. It’s currently offered for sale by East Coast Auto Source in the small town of Bedford, Virginia. Find a 1995 Jeep Wrangler for sale

The Craziest: Highly Modified 2017 Jeep Wrangler - $105,750

The Craziest: Highly Modified 2017 Jeep Wrangler – $105,750

Undoubtedly the craziest Jeep Wrangler on Autotrader now that the 6-wheel-drive Wrangler is gone, this 2017 Wrangler barely even resembles a Wrangler anymore. The doors have been removed, and the rest of the Wrangler is covered in excessive body work and aftermarket panels to completely alter its look and appearance. This conversion was likely very pricey, and it isn’t offered for cheap: it’s available with just 412 miles for an amazing $105,750 from a private seller in rural New Columbia, Pennsylvania. Find a 2017 Jeep Wrangler for sale

The Most Expensive: 2016 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Conversion - $109,500

The Most Expensive: 2016 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Conversion – $109,500

This is the most expensive Wrangler currently listed for sale, and it’s no surprise it’s so expensive: not only is it a relatively new 2016 model, but it’s a 4-door pickup conversion — a pricey job — and it features a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 under the hood, with 475 horsepower. It’s traveled just 3,800 miles since new, and it’s offered by a private seller in Maylene, Alabama, near Birmingham, for a whopping $109,500 — big money, but still likely less than this would’ve cost when it was sold new by AEV, who converted it into a pickup truck. Find a 2016 Jeep Wrangler for sale

The Oldest: 1987 Jeep Wrangler - $11,995

The Oldest: 1987 Jeep Wrangler – $11,995

The Wrangler was officially called "Wrangler" with a redesign for the 1987 model year after years going by the decidedly less lovable "CJ" name. There are a few 1987 Wrangler models listed on Autotrader, and this one seems the most well-preserved — a dark blue example with only aftermarket fenders, wheels and tires listed for $11,995 with 143,000 miles. It’s offered by Auto Direct in Mandeville, Louisiana, just across Lake Ponchartrain from New Orleans. Find a 1987 Jeep Wrangler for sale

The Time Capsule: 1995 Jeep Wrangler With 19,800 Miles - $15,995

The Time Capsule: 1995 Jeep Wrangler With 19,800 Miles – $15,995

There are a surprising number of well-preserved Wrangler models for sale on Autotrader, but this might just be the nicest of them all. It’s a 1995 Wrangler, finished in Emerald Green Pearl Metallic over a beige cloth interior (described as "saddle") with just 19,841 original miles. It’s largely undriven, doesn’t appear that it’s ever been modified, and it’s offered for $15,995 by Ryan Friedman Motor Cars in Valley Stream, New York, on Long Island just outside New York City. According to the Carfax report, it was sold new in the Hamptons, where it remained with its original owner until a few months ago — likely as a second car when the owner happened to be at the house for the weekend. Find a 1995 Jeep Wrangler for sale

  1. Speaking from experience (currently own my second Wrangler), I think these are very comfortable to drive. Obviously it is not a Cadillac and I doubt anyone would confuse the two. But I have taken several road trips in my first and second Wrangler. I drove for 16 hours straight before my back began to hurt. However, even in a Caddy I think anyone would be a little sore being in a vehicle for so long. The fans buy Jeeps for their heritage and capability. With larger tires the noise becomes louder, duh. But the increase of capability with regard to the relatively inexpensive cost of the modifications is worth it to a VERY large portion of the population. I mean this is THE American icon. Compare the first post war civilian Jeep (CJ) to a brand new 2018 and there is NO mistaking that they are both Jeeps. A few creature comforts have come throughout the years obviously, but how many other manufacturers can boast such a long heritage with the such little change and stellar sales throughout the years? Jeeps also hold their resale value extremely well. Just look at auto trader, eBay, or anywhere else and you will see Jeeps several years old (10-15 yrs), with high mileage still fetching over $10K. They are reliable, easy to work on, easily modifiable and give you a sense of freedom that you cannot achieve with your standard sedan. Call me biased towards the Wrangler if you want to, I gladly accept it!  🙂

  2. Am I the only one who thinks Wranglers are a bit overrated? They’re amazing cars and all, also highly modifiable, but having driven one I wasn’t all that impressed. Highly capable, yet the driving experience was somehow dull…oh and uncomfortable.
