Strange build on my 2001?

As I go through my 2001, I am noticing some things that don't seem to match.

First, oil pressure is in BAR and coolant temp is C. So my first thought was that it was a Canadian model.
But then looking at other parts, it appears to have California emissions - 2 pre-cats and 4 O2 sensors. There is no emissions sticker anywhere under the hood.
As I am going through and fixing various issues, I am finding that some of my sensors are 2002 (according to parts books).

I understand the sensors as I have seen more than a few mid-year changes from Jeep. The dash and emissions are strange though.

Export of some type. I would put my money on a vehicle sold overseas to someone in the military then imported. Have you checked the VIN?

Re: Strange build on my 2001?

Requested a build sheet to see what comes up. For an export I would have assumed FED emissions standards and not Kali. Also going to run a carfax and see what it says. I found evidence that it might have hit something - no structural damage, but most of the mounts for the grill/bumper/headlight panel are broken.

Ran a Carfax and it was originally a Canadian vehicle. That explains the dash. Would that explain the emissions also? Is Canada as strict as California?

So my new question is would the odometer be reading in Kilometers?

Re: Strange build on my 2001?

I got the build sheet for my 2000 WJ that says it was produced for NY but has CA emissions. What's also funny is it was originally sold in PA and brought back before I bought it. I'm the second owner.

I think I read that at some point, maybe 2001 models, everything got california emissions regardless of destination. My '02 Limited 4.7 was originally shipped to Illinois and has four o2 sensors and all that jazz..
