Cons

Gas mileage.

Its A Jeep Thing.... — 2001 Jeep Wrangler Sport (TJ). Has yet to die on me no matter what. Gas mileage blows in comparison to a car (18 average). Solid axles fore and aft (D30/D44) so it rides like a tank, 231 t-case with a 2.72 gear reduction in 4L. The bullet proof 4.0 mated to the truck edition of the NV3500 series tranny; Currently using the 04 version of the 3550 due to the implementation of real bushings instead of paper. Factory equipped with 30" rubber along with a set of 3.73s to push em and an LSD equipped rear end, one could go to 95% of the places in the world stock...... But stock isn't perfect. OEM brakes blow due to the relationship between the piston bore size and pad sweep area. A quick call to Van down in LA and a set of revised knuckles and dual piston calipers off a Ford Exploder fixes that problem nicely. The D30 is internally sealed inside the diff leaving the tubes open to fill with crap. Tube seals fixed that up nicely. Stock diff covers are made out of 1/8" thick stamped steel. Good for curbs, horrible for anything else. Some 3/16" cast steel covers from Rockcrusher was the solution. The original exhaust was kinda quiet and all told boring plus I6s have a unique tone that should be heard, hence my Dynomax Super Turbo I installed. For 00-01 the stock tranny blows. It was the first time the NV3550 was made for Jeep, and New Venture gear screwed up. Later versions of the tranny were beefed up. Thanks to the PO destroying second gear for me, I had a good excuse to upgrade. Interior is a nice mix of classic design, neutral plastic and many rattles and knocks. Its a Jeep, it comes with the territory. Heep has yet to break down on me. However, there is very few OEM parts left on it. Engine, t-case, and the Tub are some of the few stock pieces left. Everything else I've either replaced due to wear or upgraded.

Jeep - "it's A Jeep Thing" - O|||||||o — I once did a 180 degrees on the 101 going South bound, avoiding a car that suddenly changed lane in front o fme and braked. The Jeep Wrangler made the 180 degrees and across the 5 lane freeway, unturned (thank God!). I must say, who ever say that Wranglers are unsafe and easily turn-over has been proven wrong, at least on that day.

Awesome Toy — I like everything about this jeep, its just not well suited for my family of 6. It was very fun to be able to take the top down on a nice day and be able to ride around. The kids did enjoy it but we had to take two vehicles to get where we were going when we would take it.

Fun Car, Not A Commuter. — I think this is a good reliable car that can be fun both on and off road. Lots of personal tweaks and a removable top make this fun to drive in the summer, to the beach or off-roading. Very easy to maintain.

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

Pros

Versatile vehicle - hard top, soft top, many accessories available

Cons

gas mileage is not the best on any Jeep, but who cares about mileage when you are 4-wheeling through mud and snow!

Versatile, Cool Transportation. — Many options, fun to drive, pull through any road conditions, easy maintenance. Hard top, soft top, can get lift kits, can tow jetskis, can buy all sorts of accessories and options, nothing more fun to drive than a Jeep Wrangler!

Pros

Very reliable and "fun" vehicle. Great off-road capabilities, and not-too-bad on-road.

Cons

Not really suited to more than two people, other than in a pinch.

Overall, A "specialty" Vehicle. — Very reliable and "fun" vehicle. Great off-road capabilities, and not-too-bad on-road. Not really suited to more than two people, other than in a pinch. (And I do mean "pinch" if you're in the back seat.) Overall, the Wrangler 2-door is somewhat a "specialty" vehicle. Superb off-road capabilities, OK on-road. Ride and handling should be considered the price you're paying for the excellent off-road capabilities. The I4 is a somewhat maligned engine, but in my ever-so-humble opinion, it's a good choice. Very reliable and the factory gearing used with the 4-cyl I4 makes this version of the Wrangler extremely capable off-road.

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

Best Car For Chicagoland — The Jeep has been the best car I have ever owned. It is versatile sporty and fun. It is comfortable to drive and repair costs were minimal. There are no blind spots since you are sitting high up and have a large rear side window. It has space and gas mileage issues but thats not what Jeeps are for. They are meant to plow through snow and 2 months later roll right up to the sand at the beach.

Love. — Rides like a jeep. Handles great in snow, ice, on rocks and mud. Never need to plow/shovel the berm at the end of the driveway; I can just drive over it. I wouldn't sell it if I didn't have to.
