Jeep's second-generation Wrangler was a huge hit upon its release in 1996, with production lasting until 2006. With millions invested into a 36-month development, the Wrangler was designed to be a rugged, exceptionally capable and versatile SUV, being able to take its occupants to places other vehicles would struggle. 

This focus on being able to conquer any terrain made it popular throughout the world with those who needed a little more potential in testing environments and also enthusiasts who spend their weekends wading through swamps and climbing hills in modified 4x4s for fun. 

Imported from Japan in 2021, this Wrangler Sport boasts a good factory spec with extensive modifications carried out by Surrey off-road specialists. The result is an even more capable, imposing SUV that features thousands of pounds worth of ARB, Teraflex and Warn equipment. 

Powered by a 4.0L AMC inline-6 engine that has benefited from specialist inspection and renewed parts, this Wrangler would make a thrilling weekend toy or a stand-out daily driver that will turn heads and raise eyebrows.

  • Striking appearance 
  • Extensively modified 
  • Excellent condition 

The unmissable appearance of this Wrangler attracts attention. Its aggressive stance, huge tyres and exhaustive list of modifications such as a front winch, arch extensions, snorkel and multiple LED lights are all impressively imposing but also functional. It looks incredible from each angle, militant, assertive and dominant. At the front of the vehicle, the front bumper has been replaced with a Warn front bumper and winch and ARB spotlights. The headlights have also been upgraded to LEDs. 

To the side, huge prominent Bushwacka arches surround black Method alloys and 33’’ BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres, plus ARB black side bars and a safari snorkel have been fitted. To the rear, a 5th method wheel sits on a swing wheel hanger that allows the boot to be accessed easily plus a rear Warn bumper. The removable canvas roof was replaced in 2021 with a good second-hand Sunrider top. This wrangler has seen some extensive and purposefully chosen modifications that have resulted in a powerful and highly functional 4x4.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
