Go Anywhere — The most capable vehicle on the road. Too bad so many of these will never be used to their potential. My Jeep is used for off-roading. I trailer it more now than I did in the past mainly because I wheel it hard and want to be able to get it home if I break something on the trail. The Jeep is a one of a kind and is built like no other. I've owned several Jeeps through the years and have had no issues mechanically with any of them. The 4.0 I-6 is the most reliable engine of all time, in my opinion. I currently have a 2001 WJ with the I-6 at 146,000 miles and it still doesn't use or leak oil.

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.

If You Haven't Driven A Wrangler, You Haven't Lived. — This Wrangler has been very well maintained with all records & original window sticker. Driven by original owner, a 64 year old lady. The Jeep looks like its just out of the showroom. The 6 cylinder engine is spotless. This car is fun to drive & will bring a smile. Wave to your fellow Wrangler drivers.

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.

10,000 — We love our jeep! It is so fun in the summer time when you can take the top off and drive around with the wind and sun on your face. The only thing that stinks is there are only two seat belts in the back and we now need three.

I Would Recommend That Everyone Try Driving One For A Week Or Two — about 200 hp, awesome 0-60 top speed about 90, handles like crap, great off road, body has dents and dings, pretty uncommon electric lime green paint, interior is in amazing shape, bad gas mileage, with soft top down it is awesome to drive

Great project at home and always fun to go off-road with.

Cons

This Jeep was in need of a lift kit and a better tranny.

All In All, This Was The Best Jeep That I Ever Drove. — This Jeep is one of a kind in my book because it is the first Jeep that i ever drove. It is a wonderful memory and a lot of fun to drive in the mud! The only problem that I ever had with it was the tranny. It had a tendency to get stuck in 2nd gear.

Fun, Fun, Fun. If You Accessorize, Know What You're Doing Or Have A Pro Do It. — Most fun car I've ever owned, hands down. To have the freedom of top up/top down, on- or off-road, 4-wheel drive, expandability... Classic Wrangler look with a nice interior. It does ride "like a Jeep," and it doesn't get the best gas mileage. I've got a short lift (2 inch) on it, and it has a bit of a "death wobble" when it hits potholes. Easy vehicle to work on, but it hardly ever NEEDS it. I just do it for fun!

2004 Jeep Rubicon — Its a Jeep what else do you have to say. It is not going to win any beauty contest or beat a porche in the 1/4 mile but dont follow me if you plan on making it to the other side.
