Love My Jeep — A Wranglerr is the best Florida vehicle. I love being to take the top off and ride but when it comes to interstate power, there is none. But hey, who's in a hurry when your riding a Jeep anyway. For a weekend vehicle a Jeep is ideal. As for me, I enjoy riding with the top down on my way to work. Kinda clears my mind.

It's A Jeep — Wrangler SE has the traditional "old style" Jeep look. Great on the beach with the top down. The 2.4 engine with stick is as basic yet as reliable as they come. What fun is summer without a good ol' Jeep.

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

Pros

Seriously fun to have. Top off, doors off, off-roading, whatever- it's all a great time. Does nicely when there's flooded roads, snow, etc. Great for the summer time. Comfortable.

Cons

Not the greatest sound system, but it suffices just fine. Poor gas mileage.

I Love This Car- So Much Fun. — Overall this is a great car. Fun to have, drive, no matter what combination of parts included or excluded. My only problem with it is the poor gas mileage. Having to drive so far for work tends to rack up quite a bit of money for the long-haul.

Most Fun Ever — Dropping the top in the summer is the best! Off-raoding is great. Gas mileage sucks, but then again, who cares! Would definately recommend to anyone wanting to join the cult! Stop thinking about it and just do it! You won't regret it!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
