WANTED: 1992-1995 Jeep Wrangler Laredo!

We’ve all had that find that got away! Maybe we turned down a good deal without knowing it or perhaps someone else just beat us to it. Well, it was neither of those scenarios for me. I’ve been hunting for an older Jeep to take my family on back-country excursions and last week I found this awesome machine. It was a ’91 Wrangler that hadn’t been modified, was wearing a beautiful color, and was outfitted with the Laredo package. It was perfect!

It was posted in the for sale by owner section of craigslist with what seemed like a fair price. Imagine my surprise when I was greeted by a used car salesman when I dialed the number. After the shock wore off, I decided to go take a look anyway. A quick inspection showed that, although not perfect, this was exactly what I was looking for! While I was out on the test drive, they had supposedly received a dozen calls on it though.  I was only willing to pay what they were asking, so they said they would call me if their “other offers” fell through.

Well, after multiple “other offer” texts from the salesman, it finally sold to someone else today. So, instead of moping, I thought I’d check if any of our readers have something similar that they would be interested in selling to me. I’d like to find one that runs, doesn’t have rust, and isn’t too far from Boise, Idaho. Please email me if you have something or if you spot anything in your area. Thanks and happy hunting!

    not to push things but… you might want to consider an LJ (04 to 06).. .that bit more room in the back is much better for a family. Longer wheelbase (the L in LJ) will give you better highway manners too (less choppy)
    just a thought… God might have a plan for you to get something everyone in the jeep can enjoy. And you can always convert to a scrambler with baja seats in the back!

      I’m not against the idea, but I’m afraid the LJ may be outside my budget.

    Well, to make you feel better, I do not believe there was a Laredo package offered in ‘91, only Renegade and Sahara. The colors on this one make me think it’s probably a Sahara. Of course, I could be wrong. I stopped paying attention as soon as the Yuppie Jeep was unveiled, payed some attention again with the TJ, then forgot about new “Jeeps” altogether after that.

      You may be right Rob! The hood was obviously repainted and it wouldn’t be hard to add stickers and the chrome bits. Perhaps I’m sending everyone on a wild goose chase?

        How far do you want to travel? Whats your zip code?

        I’m in Boise, Idaho and would prefer to find something on this side of the country.

    the 92-93 models still have the internal slave clutch bearing cylinder, the absolute weakest link on a YJ. ( except maybe for northern states rear frame rust out )

    the 94-95 have the external mounted slave cyl – works better & takes about 15 min to replace instead of 12+ hours by yourself without a car lift

    that looks like a Sahara package dolled up

      Thanks for the tip Jeepster!

    Gave you the old line ” we’ve had a dozen calls” schpiel, classic dealer pressure tactic. No shortage of Jeeps here in Colorado. Take your pick. Be advised, there are some nice ones but you’ll pay dearly for one, like buying a snowblower in winter.
