Pros

Powerful engine, solidly build and all terrain vehicle.

Cons

Low mileage of gasoline (indeed it's 4.0L high output), and it is a lil bit difficult for beginners driver.

75

Do Anything, Go Everywhere! — "There's Only One Jeep", this slogan really describes this car, This Jeep Wrangler has an enormous power, with 190HP on wheels, an also a high torsion as well. This car is fun to drive, but a lil bit difficult for those who are beginners to Jeep.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Built like a friggin car should be. 4WD is awesome.

Cons

The soft tops and lack of acceleration kills the joy

135

Wait For Winter — Let me put it to you this way: Although the acceleration was horrifying, this Jeep was built for something serious. Dirt, snow, lakes, whatever you want to put it though, it can handle. Not bad looking at all. Soft tops are kind of annoying because they rip, but who needs a top? GREAT to drive - especially in the snow. But if you drive a small car, this is something you have to get used to....

Jeep Just-emptied-every-pocket — 214,000 original miles, 5 spd, 33" bf goodrich all terrain tires, 2" budget suspension lift, 1" body lift, custom stinger front bumper i made, hella 500w driving lights, thrush welded muffler, throttle body spacer, long tube cold air intake (more low end torque), accel 42,000 volt ignition coil, rear locker, i removed the exhaust manifold and welded up the cracks that are common on wranglers, it is very fun to drive, most people can't, its fast for a jeep, and it can go pretty much anywhere

Pros

Summer Vehicle

Cons

Gas mileage

25

It's Fuin To Have, But I Wouldnt Suggest As A Daily Driver. — There aren't many options, but perfect for climbing and being a summer toy. I would also get the 6 cyl., the 4 cyl is the slowest thing I have ever driven. Huge torque and climbing power though.Wouldn't suggest a daily driver.

I Love It, My Daily Driver And My Off-road Rig; It Does It All — Really fun rig. Very high quality for a newer vehical, not too much plastic. The in-line 6 4.0L has a lot of get up and go and does great off road. Really fun to drive; does have some tracking issues over 60.

Best Fun To Drive Vehicle, Especially In Summer — I Love Jeeps Once you go Wrangler You never go back, It's not fast But it has the power to go through anything...with the right modifications. Nothing beats driving topless on a hot summer day with your best pals in a Jeep
