Jeepers — Performance wise it's not the best it only has the 2.5 I4 engine but i'm looking to upgrade to a Chevy small block 350. It now has a 4 inch live on it provided by rusty's off road. It also has 15 inch wheels by Unique and 30inch BFG all-terrains. Gas mileage is fairly good being at 20, 24. It is the 5spd manual version of the transmission which makes it really fun off road. The transmission i've upgraded with a B&M short throw shifter and a new heavy duty clutch. Axel wise it is stock with a Dana 30 in front and a Dana 35 in the rear. Someday i hope to change this to a Dana 40 and a Dana 44. It has nothing wrong with it mechanically except for it's hydraulic axle assist. So it can't shift into four wheel drive, however i will replace it when i do a rear drum to disc conversion on the brakes.

92' Jeep Yj — 2.5L Inline 4 cyl, didn't produce much hp but tourqe was excellent. Came factory with 4.10 gears, never got stuck once. 3" Rancho lift and Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. Rebuilt transmission myself in summer of 2006. Fun car all around.

Cons

My Project Jeep — Truly the WORST jeep I have owned. The Gutless 4 cyl even with a 5 speed could barely keep up on the highway. If you were to have this for nothing but offroad, it works great, but dual purpose...forget. Find yourself a 6 cylinder. People told me the gas mileage was about the same and I didn't believe them....well believe them! I restored this jeep from a very rusted out hulk to a very drivable and clean unit. This picture depicts before I finished painting it. It had holes in the side, no floor in the front and the springs were right to snap in reverse. Since it was going to be my winter beater, I just wanted everything sealed and dry. I bed lined the who tub inside and converted the interior from gray to Spice. It was a lot or body work, but the mechanicals just need a little tlc. It was a pretty reliable jeep when I sold it. Just not that fun to drive like my others.

Awesome tires & lift; Custom front bumper; Just plain beautiful.

Cons

No rear brake lines

55

1992 Jeep Wrangler — -Performance: Accelerates good, once I get the hang of driving a standard. Braking is good seeing as how it only has 2 working brakes. It needs new rear brake lines. It's a bumpy ride, but you'll get that with a truck like this, but it still handles pretty well I think. -Build Quality: It does need repairs; I bought it to repair it. -Appearance: The interior is practically flawless except for a few minor things (rips in the seats). Exterior is a little beat up; it was made for rock crawling, and that's exactly what it did. There's some rust, but I can deal with that. Cost of Ownership: Can't really comment on this.. I don't know its gas mileage yet, especially with its modifications. Jeep parts are relatively inexpensive except for major parts. Fun Factor: Extremely fun so far, although I can't drive it yet. It's still fun to look at though. I would recommend my Jeep to a friend, but they can't have mine. They have to get their own.

The Most Bad Ass Jeep Around — It breaks too often!!!! i love the Jeep, and like the people i meet in it! the girls love it, it turns heads where ever i go! its really loud...just like me!!! i love driving it, i just hate paying for the gas. it gets 12 mpg so i spend more time at the pump than in the jeep. but i will always love having it through mud puddles and break downs.

I really like my jeep.

Cons

I wish it was brand new and that it had a hard top.

It Is A Jeep — It is a jeep with a inline 6 cylinder, 5 speed, with 4 wheel drive so it is not a perfomance vehicle it is a cruiser. This jeep is built good. I am having to replace my Spider gears and the third member that got damaged in the rear end.When I bought it the guy told me it has all new interior he redone the upholstery,new seats, and console.The jeep gets about 20 mpg. U just have to make sure u clean the top once in a while clean everything make sure yo change ur oil when needed to. Having the top down is fun to do when cruising around town.

Fun, Converible, Manual, 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine (good gas millage), Little repairs needed, all wires and engine parts are easy to get to   

Cons

Security, only 2 stock speakers

Jeep Wrangler S 1992 — Security would have to be the only issue I would have with my Jeep. The build quality is superior to many being that I have only had to patch a few holes in the body after 16 years and 197k miles. The gas mileage is great. I have gone 233 miles on one tank of gas. This is a real fun car and shines beautifully when washed and waxed.

fun, can go topless, loud stereo, cheap on gas

Cons

lacks power, needs a lift..... kinda looks like a power wheels right now.

Great Fun, On And Off Road. — My jeep is pritty much completely stock besides the stereo system, which really pounds, alpine type s speakers (4x6's and 6x9's) with a alpine type s 12 inch sub with 900w Rms and 4 ohms. Plans are to lift it 6.5 or 8" the proper way and then do a spring over axle kit for another 5.5" so i can stuff some 38" super swampers in there, it has the 2.5l four cylander which is good for now due to gas prices. soon to be swapped for a 400hp 4.0L stroker straight 6 and an ax15 transmission.
