Top 10 Chassis Codes You Should Know

4. TJ Jeep Wrangler

This one is a no-brainer. The Jeep Wrangler from our youth is a rugged, yet approachable off-road vehicle. With limitless capability and styling as blue-collar as a pair of worn-in jeans the Jeep Wrangler TJ just says “Jeep.”

TJs are the Wranglers made between 1997 and 2006 and saw the return of the circular headlights. The TJ was also the last production vehicle to use AMC-related parts. The TJ was available in many trim levels and special editions, including the ever-capable Rubicon.

    this is a fun, car-geeky list. i owned an e46 3-series, but strangely feel the e30 m3 is still bmw’s most iconic car. i think the audi b5 a4 was a great classic design and perhaps their first real mass market success.

    and am i the only person who thinks the car companies could be a little more creative in picking chassis codes that aren’t so close to the model names themselves, so as to not utterly confuse us all? how about porsche’s new 2023 911, chassis code: chameleon?

  • There’s also the P71 Panther Police Interceptor package for the Ford Crown Victoria, a mainstay of police forces (and of course, reconditioned as a mainstay of taxi and limo fleets) throughout most of the U.S.

    It’s a little hard to read this list and not see the term “E30” pop up.

  • Jamal

    Agreed. E30 is THE BMW chassis code. Forget E46.

    I’ve always been an R32 GT-R fan.

  • Rickers

    Really? That car is an overrated POS.
