Loved It — Great for summer with the top off and good for winter for those snowy streets. Great off road vehicle with one of the best rated approach and departure angles.I had lots of fun with mine and would get another one in the future.

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

It's a Jeep (Just Empty Every Pocket)

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.

Awesome — I love everyting about it. The ride,power,apperance. Everything. there isnt really one thing i hate about it. i love the ability to go with no top or doors. everything is owner friendly. And when you own a jeep no one else understands your love affair with it beside other jeep owners.

Off roading capability, removable top, removable doors!

Cons

MPG, noise, acceleration

Not Trading My Car In, But In A Perfect World I'd Have A Zippy Commuter Car As Well. — Love my car... so much. But given a choice, I'd take the 6cyl over the 4 - barely noticeable difference in mpg, but significant difference in power. Overall, this car is a BLAST! Think of myself as a Jeep convert for life!

A Girls Best Friend — best 4wd a girl could have. performance wise, due to modificagtions its not so great onroad anymore, but stock they are quite comfortable to drive. it always needs repairs because i brake it so often, but it goes further than any other make or model i wheel with without needing repairs.

Pros

Looks of envy I get while driving it

Cons

Lose speed when going up a hill as with every other Jeep

65

My Jeep — Is by far the best vehicle I've ever owned although with the 33" tires can't drive it the same way as the minivan but it is so damn fun to drive even if I do, do racecar shifting. Driving without the roof is great as long as you tie your hair back lol. The gas mileage is great for a Jeep as with most you can only get 350 kms to the tank but with this one can get 400.

Off roading!

Cons

Not the fastest as is.

Jeep Wrangler 4.0l Sport — Accellaration and top speed isn't the greatest. I wish it was a manual. I-6 eats gas like crazy, but you gotta love that strait-six sound! But, easy to take care of, easy to modify, easy to fix stuff. Mine's all rusted out but that's all that's wrong with it! Could have more cargo room but my bike fits in there without the back seat, lol.
