Pros

fun toy for wheelin

Cons

its a jeep. she breaks often

75

No Name Yet. — she has a lot of low end torque which makes the acceleration pretty slow, but its not like im trying to race over boulders or anything. the fun factor is VERY high. if you love the outdoors youll love a jeep.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Funnest toy ever - nothing better than spring time in the Jeep

Cons

You buy a Jeep with the anticipation of working on them. Needless to say, she has her good days and her bad days. Low gas mileage and cold in the winter

Awesome — This is the funnest vehicle to own in my opinion. A must have for the outdoorsy type! I love taking the Jeep camping, off roading, or even just for a joy ride. I enjoy working on mechanical work nearly as much as I enjoy the ride.

Pros

the look and fell of it, makes me happy and carefree when driving topless

Cons

The only thing that is wrong is no cup holders

Love It — My jeep has the original 4.2L engine in it. It was a 5spd but we changed it to an auto for my kids to drive. Overall my jeep is good on gas and looks good too. It still has the original decals on it from the factory. We put a 4" suspension lift in it and has 32" BFG mud terrian tires.

Pros

Design

Cons

Gas consumption

45

Funny — Acceleration was good for a 4x4 car, even braking and handling. This car as every American car it needs a visit to the workshop on a monthly basis. For the appearance, it has a great design specially when convertible It consumes a lot of Gas which was a disaster. it is a funny car specially during the summer season.

It's a Jeep

Cons

Old carburated motor, weak transmission.

This Is My Rust Bucket Repair In The Making............ — Face it guys, the newest YJ wrangler is over 13 years old now. Reliable, I think not. If your mechanically inclined these can be fun to drive and work on. I would avoid one as a daily driver.

Fun Toy — I bought it as a fixer upper toy and have enjoyed every minute of it. I love the way it looks now and the feeling of freedom driving it with the top down/off. I wish it had a litle more power and got better gas mileage but I wouldn't take double what I gave for it.

Amazing — i love my wrangler. It is carborated so it doesnt start when its cold. When off road nothing can challenge patches, I built him to perform! This car is super fun to drive. Especially when you take the doors and top off!

Pros

Small, quick, classic style, very manageable, rugged

Cons

Mostly driven by cheerleaders, small, makes you want to offroad more which means it costs more

75

Wrangler — I owned it very briefly. It was lifted 3.5 inches with 33" tires. First week of driving I gave it too much throttle resulting in the rear axle breaking. I would recommend upgrading the rear axle if lifting a jeep.
