Pros

I have had several jeeps through out the years and went looking for the 2006 Golden Eagle.I have had it for 3 years now and enjoy the hell out of it.It's not only an head-turner but it's a awesome performer here in ohio.Neither ice snow or rain keeps me from venturing out .I feel safer in here then I do in any other 4wd vehicle.The ride is unbelievable.compared to my older ones that I've had.Road noise is down 80% because of the factory tops being tighter.The sound system with a bit of ugrading to the front speakers is fantastic.The interior is also pretty to the eye ....not that dreary sight we all got accustomed to..All in all I would recommend those out there who want a true Super Looking-Rugged jeep this one is it

Cons

The only con is the factory tires on this one....I put a set of KUMO's Snow-Ice Rated and believe me the hum going down the road is almost nill....A bit rough on the gas MPG So far my avg is 18-25 so I'm happy with this

Awesome Jeep — I love the vehicle because it a jeep in it's own class....Not to many on the road here so It's unique in my area. Have seen White Golden Eagles not a Black one like I have.If one is looking for a rugged good looking -running vehicle this it the one for sure

The 2006 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon Is A Serious Off-road Vehicle — The 2006 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon is a SUV for the serious off-roader. On the down side there are few amenities, no power door locks, windows, and/or key-less entry. The ride is harsh and sometimes jaw pounding - but on the other hand this is the ultimate off-road vehicle. The Jeep Unlimited Rubicon has front and rear locking axels. Since this vehicle does not have a electronic throttle box, the driver controls the spped. The jeep is narrow in width allowing it to be driven in tights corridors and is at home in on rough terrain in inclement weather.

Jeep, Yep Its A Jeep. — Performance - The 4.0L in-line six is a very torque oriented system. Braking is about average for this size and weight vehicle. I don't understand all the top heavy warnings on these vehicles. I mean I would go through a track course full throttle but i do believe the rollover possibility has been a bit over played. Build Quality- I've been having issues with the weather stripping around the windshield. Plus the passenger side exterior door handle has been coming out of the door itself. I'm a little disappointed at this point. Appearance- How can you not like a Jeep Wrangler? lol My only complaint is the factor wheels. They are just plain and ugly. There is no way around it. They will be changed eventually. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is around 18mpg in this area. Which isn't the worst nor is it the best. I'll admit for a 4 wheel drive vehicle tipping the scales above four thousand pounds. I can't complain too much. Just don't get on the interstate with it. Its geared low enough to where a trip on the interstate will break the bank by fuel consumption. Fun Factor - During the summer and warm months the top comes down easily with some practice. With the top down, this is one of the most fun vehicles I have ever driven. Now if you like to play in the snow, you'll be disappointed. The traction with decent grip tires will leave u going where its supposed too and not sideways like you wanted. lol Thats one of those grown up perks, but for the kid inside of us all its kind of a let down.

Golden Experience — The jeep wrangler golden eagle edition that i own is nothing like the one in the picture, to be honest its a lot nicer. First off, the wheels in the picture are not the standard wheels, the standard wheels on this jeep are gold, or tanish, they sound kinda stupid but they match the car very nicely.Also the front bumper is missing the fog lights, and the bumper tips are not the standardly equipped ones, also they mostly come with black side steps. this atuomobile is a blast to drive no matter the weather, the standard six speed manual is a blast for just driving on and off the road. the standardly bigger tires are nice to have out of the gate. the front and door windows would be nice if there were tinted at least a little bit but you can do that on your own. unfourtanly i didnt get both the hard top and soft top it is suppose to come with. the upgraded sound systems is very nice compared to the regular one.

Jeep Aka Just Empty Every Pocket — Well lets see the jeep wrangler is alot of fun I would never drive another vehicle however if your looking for a vehicle good on gas you should stop looking now this little beast drinks the fuel up like water. U joints are fairly common to have to replace on a fairly regular basis if you off road. All in all its a great vehicle lacking on storage room but anyone that owns a tj knows you don't buy one for trunk space. Great for going camping offroading fantastic in the winter...any-time of year really. You can lift them take off parts add new ones make it your own and its one of the few vehicles left on the road not made of fibre glass. If your a Kevin Harvick wanna be this is not the ride for you this baby is lucky to push past 120 with out doing a death shake. All in all you either love them or hate them but you'll never turn back once you've owned one

Pros

If the road is on the map, you can take it in this Jeep. Sunrider top is a nice option to taking the whole softtop off.

Cons

Aerodynamics of a brick with fuel economy to match; range is shorter than ideal.

Last Of The Proper Jeeps — 2006 was the last year for the venerable 4.0 straight six torque monster engine, and the only year with a 6-speed stick. We have a '94 Cherokee in storage in Sydney that took us on 150,000 kms of off-road adventures and was fantastic, so when we needed a 'dog car' I ordered this Wrangler with the long wheelbase. Doggie has his own seat and there's still room for a long weekend's worth of luggage for an adventure. As you can see from the picture we don't baby it - the Rubicon pieces make this a proper off-road tool.

Last, Best LJ.  6 Speed, top off - doors off joy.  Go anywhere, do anything unstoppable TJ.

Cons

Mileage, kids climbing into back seat, cargo with 3+ passengers.

For The Pure Of Soul — If you feel deprived by a lack of power anything, need to have seat warmers, or just feel the concierge at the hotel could have done more - move along. But if your soul pines for mountaintops or distant shores, don't waste another moment of your life before you buy your Jeep.

Bsst American Suv — The Jeep Wrangler is the Best SUV that has ever been built. It has capability up the waszoo. It has done everything that I have ever asked it to do and has so many after market parts available to make it truly a one of a kind its not even funny. I love this thing and will never sell it. Its A Jeep Thing, You Wouldn't Under Stand!

turns heads, a blast to drive, a beast off road, sounds mean, goes great in the rain, snow and ice, lots of fun in the summer time.

Cons

fuel economy is alittle steep, no amenities like power locks or windows, interior noise is very strong.

This Is A Head Turner, Very Impressive Ride. It Was My Dream Car. — this is a great vehicle for recreation and impressing the opposite sex, off road abilities are exceptional and its fantastic in the snow. other vehicles make way and the as a body armor and build make it very durable and resilient to little boo boos like backing in to your husband's truck or a light pole. without the back seats I can haul two great danes in the back comfortably. I love it, feel pretty badass driving it and I love the conversation piece that it is. It do not recommend it as a daily driver if your commute is lengthy or if your job requires delivery services. it is hard on fuel, especially if you have lead foot but she's got enough torque that you cant even tell she's runnin factory gears with the 35 in tires.
