MB Diesel Power: 1995 Jeep Wrangler

The YJ generation Jeep Wrangler isn’t known for being a fast vehicle — even with the big 4.2 liter AMC straight-6…but imagine a Wrangler that drives like it is bogged down in quicksand on any regular street and this is what we’ve got today.  Find this 1995 Jeep Wrangler offered for $6,995 in Tampa, FL via craigslist.  Tip from Victor.

This Wrangler is powered by a 3 liter inline-5 OM617 diesel engine from an ’83 Mercedes-Benz 300 SD, and I won’t bother giving you the power/torque specs — just assume it will be a supreme fuel sipper, but just dead-dog slow.
