Makes A Statement — A Jeep is not just a "vehicle", it's an attitude. It performs in all situations you ask of it. The vehicle is certainly not built for speed, but it makes up for that short-coming in presence, stature and capability. Plus … it's hard to kill a JEEP :)

Pros

Love the Jeep Wrangler, the 4x4 and 6cyl seem to be built proof.  Being able to customize each Jeep to make it your own, is a great attributes, whether you want to put a few dollars into it or full out customize it, it is nice to have the versatility of owning a Jeep.   

Cons

The stock sound system leaves a little bit to be desired, especially if you have the top down or off.

One Of The Best Suv's On The Market Today....a Must Own — The Jeep Wrangler is in a class of it's own, you can go anywhere in it, and it is one of the simplest vehicles to maintain. The fact of being able to put the top down and take off the doors in a matter of minutes is wonderful. The sound system is weak, however if you purchase an affordable amp all is good. I would highly recommend everyone owning a Jeep at least once in their life!

Love It But Live By The Jeep Acronym, Just Empty Every Pocket — No dislikes, its wouldn't be a breaking down gas hog had I never put it through hell lol. You jus can't beat a wrangler, so many different things you can do with them. I went with the black and lime green, gives it a mean look lol

This Vehicle Has Years Of Fun Left In It. — This is the best vehicle I've ever owned and I'm sorry to lose her. Always starts, 4wd goes thru anything. Hard top for winter soft top/no top for summer. Legendary straight six engine will run longer than I do.

Great Looking And Running Jeep Wrangler — this is my 1998 wrangler. nothing to special, quality is very good nothing wrong. Promormence i cant complain much about, however a 4 cyl. with 33"'s and only 4 10 gears is a little much. Gas mileage is about 13 or 14ish with my little tires on i got about 21. But this car has always been fun to drive.

Gas milage

Wouldn't Sell It For Anything — This is the best car to drive during the summer with the top down. It handles really well excapt when taking a sharp turn. Gas milage isn't that great but its a small price to pay for the pleasure of driving it.

Awesomeness — It's boss. Little too much plastic, typical rugged jeep styling, Good power though motor can be a little sluggish at times, did I mention it's boss? Very fun to ride with the top and doors off and drive with the manual tranny.
