The Jeep is well known as a wartime vehicle which kept American servicemen on the move; in fact it's often referred to as the original off-roader. The car and name developed through the decades, and Chrysler bought the right to produce it in 1988, when they took bought the American Motor Company. That spurred the release of the Jeep Wrangler Renegade, with wider arch extensions and a 244ci (4-liter) straight-six. The Sahara was simply a limited edition of the same Jeep Wrangler, even though it looked slightly different, thanks to new sheet metal (all bar the doors, in fact) and round headlamps, fitted from 1996-on models. Like the original Jeep, the Sahara used a strong ladder frame underneath with front and rear live axles. The gearboxes available were a 5-speed manual or 3-speed auto, with standard low and high four-wheel drive ratios.
