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 :)

Jeep Wrangler — Runs great. Love the soft top. Standard tranny, yuck! Very pretty green. Reliable, and fun to drive. Not a good grocery getter.

Jeep Wrangers Are Fun — So fun to drive. Take the roof off, the doors off, and take it into the woods. Rip around in snow storms when nobody is around. The wrangler is strong, and easy to work on. The mileage is so-so. Its not the smoothest or most quiet ride for road trips, but again, its so fun to drive.

Fun as hell to own and drive

Cons

For a taller person, it could use a little more space in the cab.

98 Tj Wrangler — Well, I rated performance at a four, because it's not a fast vehicle. Jeeps are torquie as hell, and for good reason. They're not meant to go fast. You want fast, I can't help you. Overall, the TJ is one hell of a four wheeler. But, then again, what Jeep isn't? One thing that Jeep stuck to was the design of their Wranglers. Very minimal changes to the cosmetics and suspension. The 4.0L H/O is a very good motor and is known to last well beyond 300,000 miles, if properly taken care of. Unfortunately, in 2007, the Wrangler JK was introduced bringing a V6, not the I6 as in previous model Wranglers. The V6 has its benefits, such as slightly higher gas mileage and more horsepower. Although, it's not good for off-roading because the torque isn't as present as it was in the I6 4.0L. I, myself, prefer the straight six over a V6 any day. Jeep has always made a strong product. I have had many Jeeps and they have gotten me out of some pretty nasty trouble. That's all I have to say. Again, overall, this vehicle is a blast to drive! What it lacks in space in the cab, it makes up in pure fun. If you want a good video of a Stock TJ, check out YouTube, you'll find a lot of videos there. Thanks for reading, and feel free to ask any questions!

Cons

lacks a little power.

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.

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!
