Not An Everyday Driver — Good for the occasional trip and errands, Excellent offroad capabilities. Not good for every day commute to work. Not the easiest vehicle to get in and out of and the little bit of cargo space is difficult to access. Had to remove the back seat just so I could have a little bit of space.

The Von Helmet Synopsis — I love it. Everybody should own one at least once just to know how fun they are even if the ride is somewhat rough,mileage is questionable and lackluster performance. All the shortcomings can be improved upon and that just adds to the fun of convertible,4x4 go anywhere good times. :) Oh....and the chicks dig it too. ;)

97 Jeep Wranger — I absolutely love this beast. If it were stock, I wouldn't enjoy it so much. If you own a wrangler, you need to put some off road tires on it and a lift. Its awesome in the North East cause it goes through snow like its not even there and in the summer you can take the doors off! Its perfect!

1997 Red Jeep Wrangler — Picked this jewel up in Ft.Lauderdale on e-bay for my son. Drove it home to B'ham with no doors or a top. What's great about it is everything can be replaced cheaply. I don't have a convertible, so on the weekends between March and October this is my favorite ride.

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

Pros

I've always wanted a Jeep Wrangler cuz I love the way they look, the possible modifications are endless and of course, the mud slingin'
Parts are also easy to come by & many are interchangeable with ford

Cons

Mine's a 4.0 which is taking me a while to adjust to after driving V8's for so long.
The 1st thing I hear from people is, "You need to be careful, Jeeps are easier to flip cuz they have a shorter wheel base." Do they think I don't already know that????

So Much More Awesome Than I Thought It Would Be!!!! — It is a little difficult for the kids to get in & out with it being a 2 door, but in a few years it's not going to be an issue. I love the fact that it's a hard top but because its in sections, you can just pop out the front top & secure it on top of the other half.

Its Tha Balls — I love this jeep its like a big quad!! turns on a dime, good acceleration, great braking, i live on an island so the frame is rusted pretty good had to re-weld once all ready. Appearance is good with the top on and off! low maintenance, gas mileage is probably 18 miles per gallon. super fun to drive! On and Off the road!!

Pros

If you like to play in the mud or go trail riding this is the perfect vehicle, or even take the top off and cruise the beach on a nice sunny day.

Cons

With the lift it gets less fuel mileage.

Fun — I like the look of a Jeep, the build quality is superb it is easy to work on and you can find parts for jeeps in quite a few different autoparts or junk yards. The Performance is great, the handling on the road is good.

My Thoughts — I love my Jeep. There is nothing special about it. It was puchased for the purpose of offroading. I am currently in the process of converting it from a 4 to 6. Do not recommond this it is alot of work.

Off Road Runner! — Love that it is a sturdy, fun, simple vehicle that anyone can drive even if they have never driven a standard. It is such an easy going ride and is very dependable in any situation. Oh and it has both a hard & soft top!!
