A Little Pricey But You Actually Get More Than You Pay For, Well Worth The Money — I absolutely love this vehicle!! The 4.0L I6 is the most sturdy motor i have ever had, very torquey, Has absolutely no problem braking, acceleration is somewhat slow due to the gearing in the 5spd transmission. Build quality is awesome, It squeaks a little bit but you barely hear it. I have had to get the rear differential replaced for a pinion nut that came loose and off. Gas mileage is mediocre, i personally get about 15.5mpg and the tank holds 19gal. This is a great all year round vehicle, summer you can take the doors off and top down, in the winter the heater works great and you get great handleing in the snow.

Pros

Go anywhere capability, looks great, can go topless and doorless

Cons

Poor gas mileage

04 Jeep Tj Rubicon — Loud, rides rough, and horrible gas mileage. No major repairs, bulletproof engine. Accelerates slow, but it's a Jeep, and is built to go over stuff, not around it. Maintenance is low cost, 10K oil changes, gas is pricey. An absolute blast to drive with the top and doors off! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun vehicle who has some money to burn on gas.

Go Anywhere — Jeep is a way of life it isn't cheap but it is alot of fun and don't knock it till you try it. the mods will come in time so don't rush it almost anything can be changed about a jeep with the right amount of money and time so find your balance

Pros

Sounds like a lion, fast as a gazelle!  

Cons

Jeep takes Premium High Octane ONLY with the conversion customization.  NO REGULAR GAS!

The Coolest And Most Fun Car I Have Ever Driven!! — Not only does it look great and sounds super strong, but the kind of performance it delivers is totally unexpected out of this vehicle. A real sleeper!! Very cool! Worth every penny of using the higher octane gas. The front and rear hitches are also a big plus for having the option to pull or push with the front. Saving someone by pulling them out of a tricky ditch or snowbank in the winter is great to do with the front of the vehicle since you can look directly at what you are doing. A small plane can be pulled or pushed out of a hanger with a much higher degree of accuracy this way as well.

Great Car! — Originally bought as a cheap ride to work and back. Put 33" tires on it, bought an aftermarket soft top. Been a blast to take off roading and just cruising around with the top off. Great car for young at heart.

Amazing fun

Cons

If your not going to use it for offroading then dont get a Rubicon

Great Way To Get Into Wheeling — When you buy a Jeep you buy into a lifestyle. The overall onroad performance has much to improve but that isnt the reason why you purchase a Rubicon. The engine has lots of torque and is loud at any speed above zero. The tires are loud at speeds in excess of 80km/h and give off a vibration that you can feel through the jeep. You will not win any races at the stop light with this guy and you will use up the hole hwy on ramp almost every time. The offroad performance is where it counts with this jeep. With low range gearing set at 4:1 and air actuated locking front and rear differentials, you will find it hard to get stuck. This thing crawls over obstacles and powers through the mud. But when you do find yourself in a situation where you are stuck, you will be happy that you signed up to the jeep lifestyle because every jeep owner on the trail would be their to help you out. The appearance is stylish and aggressivie with the rubicon rims and mud terrain tires. As you get into the jeep lifestyle it will be hard not to upgrade you vehicle to improve on its off road abilities. you will find no shortage of parts to help make this vehicle trully unique to you. The cost of this vehicle is relatively high because of the desire of the Rubicon model. But if you are using it for off roading it is worth it. You will get the toys with it that will help you in the sticky situations. The fun factor is really high on this one. If you are just cruising down the road with the top down or rippin up the trails this Jeep fits in everywhere. You will have a blast. Just one thing to remember when you start getting into offroading. Jeep stands for "Just Empty Every Pocket"

Great color, handles well, fun to drive, can't miss me coming down the road ;)

Cons

I need a bunch of gadgets and a garage to take my top off.... I can't lift it off by myself...

He Thinks My Jeep Is Sexy!!! — I don't really dislike anything about my Jeep... I love it ;) I drove a cherokee sport for 7 years and love jeeps! The color really pops out at ya which makes me feel safer on the road... I love how the back opens up and the seat folds down with ease... it makes moving band equipment easy as pie! I took it off road the first day and it was so fun to drive and handles anything!

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited — This truck was great to drive, handled so good in bad weather. I drove this the entire winter and drove every time it snowed. Never once had a problem. Maintenance is the key to jeeps. I did all maintenance on it, and never had a problem. Easy to work on, and easy to maintain, and so dam fun to drive. The only bad thing about a jeep, is the gas. I would tell anyone that has unlimited expenses for gas, to buy this jeep.

Pros

You will never get stuck with lockers and a fully articulating rear axle (triangulation) plus the 4:1 transfer ration with the tera low gear mod makes this machine unstoppable.

Cons

Well you have to crawl up into it, and gas mileage is about at 14-16 MPG.

The Roadworthy Beast That Is Barely Street Legal. She Just Passed Her Md Emissions Test. — With the modifications done professionally with a top of the line kit, this vehicle drives and turns like the factory design the day it pulled of the sales floor. I have owned this vehicle since it backed off the car hauler at the dealer. Nothing stops it and with all the gadgets on it its comfortable to drive and a real attention getter.

I love how mine has a lift and tires. No other way to own a jeep.

Cons

Slow sometimes, bad gas mileage, if i were wanting gas mileage, i would of chosen a prius.

Great Mud Machine! — I like the all around lift and tires. The gas mileage is poor but what it lacks in gas mileage, it makes up for in looks. The top comes down, and the doors go off. No other way to drive it.
